Hospitality Photography of Resort Amenities – Hokulia Resort
Hospitality Photography of Resort Amenities. David Tonnes of PanaViz spent a day, starting at dawn and finishing at nightfall, photographing the amenities of Hokuli’a Resort on the Kona Coast of the Big Island of Hawaii.
Hospitality photography by PanaViz captured the essence of Hokulia, a luxurious resort community in the heart of Hawaii. Through their lens, they showcased the warm aloha spirit and breathtaking natural beauty of this paradise. Those images and videos were not just captivating; they served as powerful marketing tools. Developers, realtors, and others used them to entice visitors and potential residents, offering a glimpse of the serene beaches, lush landscapes, and world-class amenities that await. PanaViz’s skillful artistry didn’t just document a place; it invited you to experience the hospitality, relaxation, and sheer wonder that defined Hokulia, making it a must-visit destination for all.
Our imagery included resort images, aerial photos, raw video as well and a narrated marking video.
Designed for active, health-conscious adventurers and avid golfers, Hokuli’a is the Kona Coast’s most spacious and private luxury residential community. You’ll enjoy sweeping ocean, coastline, and golf course views from the community’s 1,260 uncrowded acres. This vibrant community is set along three miles of west-facing shoreline away from the island’s densely populated resort areas. Experience unsurpassed luxury resort amenities and services at the exclusive Club at Hokuli‘a, which features a Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course. At Hokuli‘a, you’ll find plenty of space to gather, celebrate or simply unwind.
Our hospitality resort photography was used on Hokulia’s Resorts website. It was used to market their luxury residences. It was also used in print articles such as:

What is the difference between Panoramas and 360 Panoramas?
360 panoramas show the widest angle of a space, including up, down, and all around.
A panorama is any wide-angle view or representation of a physical space, whether in painting, drawing, photography, film, or a three-dimensional model. The motion-picture term panning is derived from panorama.
Digital photography has made it possible for us to take a number of wide angle images of a space and stitch it together so that a full 360° of a scene is captured. Thus the 360 panorama.
This image is than displayed in a viewer that allows a user to look around within this photo in an immersive experience.
Now see the 360 interactive panorama of the above scene here.
Virtual Tours for a Home
360 Panoramas have been around for over 20 years. The technology has improved significantly – it’s easier to use, navigate, and load now.
Panoramas have been perceived as gimmicky in the past, but when well implemented, they can add value to the way you display your property.
360 Virtual tours add to the vignette of still photos that exist for your property. They are a wonderful way to show the layout and flow of a space, the all around views, the soaring ceilings and wonderful carpeting and flooring.
360 Panoramas are also referred to as 360 Virtual Tours
Aerial Panoramic Photography in the Hawaiian Islands
Dave Tonnes: Aerial Panoramic photography is a hobby of mine. These are taken mostly around the Hawaiian Islands.
Punchbowl Memorial Cemetery
Ala Moana Beach Park, Waikiki and Diamond Head Panoramas
Aerial Panoramas Around Koko Crater
Anaeho’omalu Bay and Waikoloa
Aerial panoramic photography is a specialized type of 360 photography where we capture the nadir, zenith and all around view of a place, using an elevated pole/drone/helicopter.
It is great for capturing the big picture of an expansive place such as a resort.
Mauna Kea Beach
Halawa Bay, Molokai
We usually create aerial panoramas as part of our photography services for luxury hotels and resorts.
An interactive panorama lets folks interact with a panorama using their mouse or smartphone. They can tilt their phones or use the mouse to look right, left, up and down.
I generally share my Hawaii panoramas on Facebook, where they are popular. Since Facebook only allows a small size image upload best seen on a mobile device, I upload my larger-multi resolution images on our server, and these show greater detail on desktop and HD T.V. screens.
