"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.

Excellent stay at the Mauna Kea!
Jill B,
Mon May 14 19:42:14 EDT 2018
We spent 5 nights at the Mauna Kea in the beginning of May. Upon checkin, we were upgraded to an ocean view (though with double beds, rather than a king bed). The view was AMAZING in room 636. The hotel is a bit older, with a mid-century modern vibe. The setting is absolutely fantastic, gorgeous grounds and landscaping on one of the best beaches on the Big Island. One of my favorite parts of the resort are all the isolated sitting areas so that you can have a picnic lunch or curl up with a good book in a variety of settings - some quite private. The sunsets on the beach were second to none. We did not experience any of the issues that others did with folks lining up for beach chairs early in the morning. In fact, it seemed so un-crowded that I asked the front desk about their current capacity which was at 70%. The dining options were good - we were not fans of the beach restaurant but loved Copper bar and Manta. We considered booking the Manta Ray snorkel but observed the snorkel from the rocky outpost above and then swam with the Manta Rays in the same area during the day. We found the staff welcoming and accommodating at all times. Valet parking was very convenient and fast. We did not use the spa but will next time. Honestly, the Big Island is not our favorite Hawaiian Island but we would HAPPILY return just to stay at the Mauna Kea.

Love this hotel

One of the best beaches in the world. Older classic hotel that has been kept up very well. Restaurants are excellent, golf course is great, service is exceptional, and the prices are well pricey but welcome to Hawaii. Love ya orange:) will see you again.

Great stay at beautiful Mauna Kea resort

When I found out that the Mauna Kea resort was the oldest resort hotel on the island of Hawaii, it made perfect sense. The property it is built on is the best piece of land for a resort hotel that I can imagine. The beach is perfect. It is a long stretch of sand on a beautiful bay. The sand goes out hundreds of feet into the ocean. There are waives, but not too strong. There is coral along the edges of the bay where you can snorkel. The staff puts out as many beach chairs and umbrellas as the guests need. There is a restaurant/bar at the beach where you can order lunch or drinks, although you are not supposed to bring alcoholic drinks onto the beach itself. We had a ocean view on the top floor. It was spectacular. There was a nice balcony with 2 padded chairs and a foot stool. The bathroom was spacious. There were 2 sinks separated from the toilet and tub/shower. The only negative was that the tub is abnormally high. I could see someone falling getting into or out of the tub/shower. The restaurant was very good. Dinner was better than breakfast, which was primarily a very expensive but complete buffet. We would definitely return to Mauna Kea resort.

Beautiful Resort

Beautiful Hotel and Resort in the Big Island. The views are fantastic and the service is amazing. You always feel safe because of all the security you have in the hotel. We really enjoyed being there. If you're there I recommend the Luau.

Can’t stay away

This is our second time here and we still absolutely love this place. We came here on our sons Babymoon two years ago and then we brought him with us on this trip. We were talking about how we don’t have a lot of vacations and there’s so much to see if the world and that maybe this should be our last trip here. However as soon as our car pulled up and we saw the beach and he surrounding area we both looked at each other and knew we will be back after this trip. They make you feel so welcome! All the staff and they’re just so adorable from everyone cleaning the place to the bell hops guys and the beach towel folks. They are so accommodating and will do anything to help you. I don’t care what these people say. If they don’t like it then more space for me and my family. Sure some people get up early to reserve their chair then don’t come down til the afternoon but whatever. There are plenty of seats and people come and go. Does it matter where you sit as long as you have access to the beautiful beach?? Anyway Mauna Kea loved everything about our trip and we will be back again! It’s places like you that we come and just relax. People are normal despite some screaming kids etc.
