Call To Book
-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 USD150 million repair and renovation, The Mauna Kea once again stands as a landmark of luxury on the Big Island s golden Kohala Coast. Situated on 60-acres overlooking Kauna oa Bay, one of the finest natural white sand beaches in Hawaii the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel is known for its a remarkable sense of place that enhances without intruding on dramatic natural surroundings. In 2007 the American Institute of Architects recognized the hotel as one of the top 150 buildings of Americas Favorite Architecture. Just down Kohala s Lava coast the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel is the kind of place families return to year after year. Children of long-time guests bring their children wanting the same room and the same smiling staff. They may admit sheepishly that once in a while they try someplace else but for them nothing else quite measures up. And small wonder. This is the elegant world-class hotel that Laurance Rockefeller built over 30 years ago as the ultimate family retreat. Today the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel has been restored to its original splendor and continues to attract sophisticated clientele the world over.

Even at night guests step onto a circular lava outcropping overlooking the Bay to watch the manta rays swim beneath. Designed by Robert Trent Jones SR. the Mauna Kea golf Course remains the standard
