Overview

Hotel Description

Mauna Kea Beach Resort has been upholding the timeless traditions of understated elegance and aloha since 1965, when Laurance S. Rockefeller founded this historic property. Four decades and a $150 million renovation later, the hotel continues to reign as a landmark of elegance on the dazzling Kohala Coast. The natural beauty of its idyllic shores and abundant beach activities are complemented by Hawaiian cultural immersion and innovative dining. A museum-worthy art collection nestles within the mid-century modern architecture. Its 18-hole golf course and 11-court Seaside Tennis Club set standards for excellence while 252 guestrooms and suites enjoy breathtaking views. Whether strolling along the white sand beaches or experiencing dinner served with an endless ocean view, Mauna Kea Beach Resort is the perfect destination for any getaway.
