E Komo Mai (Welcome)
Our COVID-19 Health and Safety Plan (Safe Stay Hawaii) will provide you with the health and safety standards implemented by Hawaii’s Tourism Industry. These standards provide guests, customers, employees, contractors, vendors and other persons who enter hotel premises in Hawaii with expectations in terms of service, accommodations and required safety protocols.
In addition, Hilton Waikoloa Village has implemented Hilton CleanStay with Lysol protection to deliver an industry-defining standard of cleanliness and disinfection in Hilton properties across the world. Our elevated processes and Team Member training have been developed with RB, maker of Lysol and Dettol, to help guests enjoy an even cleaner and safer stay from check-in to check-out.

- All persons in the State shall wear a face covering over their nose and mouth when in public.
- All persons entering the State of Hawai‘i shall submit to Hawaii’s Travel Rules as outlined in our 5 STEPS TO TRAVEL TO HAWAII* procedures below.
