Founded in 1965 by Laurence Rockefeller, the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel was the most exclusive and expensive resort of its day. Four decades later, the Mauna Kea once again stands as a landmark of luxury on the Big Island’s golden Kohala Coast.
Hawaii Island’s Mauna Kea Beach Hotel is an
international destination resort upholding timeless traditions of understated
elegance and aloha since 1965. Generations of families gather to relax,
reconnect, create memories and enjoy life’s simple pleasures. Its 18-hole golf
course and 11-court Seaside Tennis Club set standards for excellence.
Vacationers, honeymooners, and meeting-goers enjoy 252 guestrooms and suites
with large lanai (balcony) framing breathtaking views. A museum-worthy art
collection nestles within the mid-century modern architecture. Natural beauty
is anchored by pristine Kauna’oa Bay and abundant beach activities are
complemented by Hawaiian cultural immersion and innovative dining.
