Mauna Kea Beach Hotel

The Mauna Kea Beach Hotel is an elegant, world-renowned hotel that Laurance Rockefeller built over 30 years ago as the ultimate family retreat for a sophisticated clientele. Today the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel has been restored to its original splendor and continues to attract guests from around the world. Located on the Kohala Coast on beautiful Kauna'oa Bay, the bay is considered by many to be the island's most beautiful beach and a perfect spot for all water sports. At night guests can stand on a lava outcropping overlooking the bay and watch the elegant Manta Rays swim beneath.

A testament to earlier times when his world-class resort paid tribute to the ancient Hawaiian spirit, Laurance Rockefeller's vast collection of Asian and Pacific art still graces the walls and lush tropical grounds. Over 1600 museum-quality pieces have been carefully preserved and displayed so that the unique culture of Mauna Kea Beach Hotel will live on for generations to come.

The rooms are spacious and elegantly decorated, each with a large lanai. The amenities seem endless, including a flower lei greeting upon arrival, Japanese robes and slippers, mini-refrigerator, data port, hair dryer, vcr and much more. There are a variety of restaurants on the property and their Sunday Brunch is famous throughout the island. You can also try out the variety of restaurants at thier sister hotel, The Hapuna Prince, just down the beach.

There is so much to see and do at the Mauna Kea you can be busy all day playing tennis (13 courts), golf (two fabulous championship courses), snorkeling or almost any other activity you can think of. Or you can loll by one of the freshwater swimming pool, sit in the whirlpool, read a book, or stroll along the beautiful white sands of both Kauna'oa Bay and Hapuna Beach and look for seashells. The stars on the Kohala Coast are simply amazing, seeming so close you can almost touch them. Three nights a week a high powered telescope is set us for guests to view the planets and galaxies in the crystal clear air of Kohala.

Children haven't been forgotten in the large list of activities available at the hotel. They offer a great year-round Keiki's Club Program for ages 5 to 12 years. Age appropriate activities are designed to introduce keikis to Hawaiian crafts, art and music, as well as fun excursions. There are both half and full day sessions, at reasonable prices. And meanwhile, parents can be taking advantage of a round of golf together, or relaxing at the Mauna Kea Spa with a traditional Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massage.

This is a wonderful hotel in the old tradition of elegance, serenity and impeccable service. The grounds are breathtaking, the beaches are from a dream and the ambiance is something you will remember always.
