Mauna Kea Beach Hotel

Mauna Kea Beach Hotel 

Big Island, Hawaii
“Every great beach deserves a great hotel.”

This was said by Laurance S. Rockefeller, who founded the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel in 1965. He knew the great beach at Kauna’oa also deserved spectacular golf and exceptional dining to accompany the most exclusive and expensive resort of its day. Four decades later, following a $150 million repair and renovation, The Mauna Kea once again stands as a landmark of luxury on the Big Island’s golden Kohala Coast.

Gracious guestrooms, artfully enhanced by John Hara Associates Inc. and Barry Design Associates showcase Mr. Rockefeller’s signature “understated elegance” in a graceful fusion of modern features and fabulous style. The rooms have crisp, clean lines, cloud white and bold sunset colors, along with the unchanged “wow” of wonderful views from the wide lanai. New, refined furnishings and fun finishing touches are subtly supported by hi-tech bells and whistles to produce a luxury guestroom experience that is ultra-high quality and ultimately comfortable.

The “new” Mauna Kea Beach Hotel restaurants are designed with a creative combination of cultured international cuisine and fresh, local Kohala Coast ingredients prepared with “lokomaika’i” (sharing with kindness from within). With a delicious mix of steadfast tradition and new attitude, the fine dining restaurants have exciting new sounds, sights, scents, and tastes to share, whether you’re barefoot on the beach or all dressed up with someplace wonderful to go.

Since 1964 the Golf Course at Mauna Kea has led the way in standards of course beauty and design, solidifying its place in Hawaii’s history as one of the most scenic and favored golf courses. 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.

The Mauna Kea Beach Hotel is known for its remarkable sense of place that enhances without intruding on dramatic natural surroundings. With a timeless tradition of aloha, The Mauna Kea Beach Hotel welcomes generations of guests to come and be inspired by the past, embraced by the moment, enchanted by the warm days and exciting possibilities ahead.
