Mauna Kea Beach Resort

Big Island ~ South Kohala Area

Recently reopened after a $150 million renovation, the Mauna Kea once again stands as the landmark of luxury on the Big Island’s golden Kohala Coast. Situated on a beautiful crescent beach, the Mauna Kea offers guests the ideal setting for a relaxing getaway in paradise. Avid golfers and guests of the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel continue to enjoy Robert Trent Jones Sr’s award-winning golf course and its recent updates and beautification by Rees Jones. Mauna Kea golf course is built over black lava rock, and golfers can still tee off over an ocean inlet at the third hole. Public spaces feature 1,600 Pacific and Asian artworks from founder Laurance Rockefeller’s private collection – including one of only three known 7th-century pink granite Buddhas from India. Lifeguards watch swimmers, snorkelers, and sailors at the hotel’s white-sand crescent beach, and the large pool has an ocean view. Guests can choose from excursions, craft classes, lu’aus, and many recreational activities.
One evening each week, guests of the Mauna Kea can join astronomers to view constellations through an 11-inch lens telescope. At Manta Ray Point, manta rays dine at night on small fish attracted by a spotlight, as hotel guests watch.
