"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.

Amazing weekend stay!

This was my first time at Mauna Kea Beach Hotel and my family was in from Chicago so we decided to spend the weekend here. It was AHHHMAZING!!! From our arrival until our departure, we loved it. The property is gorgeous and so well kept. Emmy at the Front Desk was so full of aloha, I felt like we were being welcomed to her home. We even received a hand written note in our room from the Hotel Manager! How amazing is that??? Also, Sharon the hostess at Copper Bar was wonderful. She squeezed us in even though we didn't have a reservation and I had a great time chatting with her while we waited. She even gave my mom some beautiful hibiscus flowers. The two gentlemen that helped us get seats at the beach on Friday and Saturday were so nice as well, I forgot to catch their names tho. Overall this was one of the greatest weekends we have had and I can't thank the staff enough. You can tell they are all proud to be working in this beautiful hotel. Thank you thank you!

Our 2nd Visit to Mauna Kea

We had a wonderful experience at Mauna Kea in 2012 and we were extremely pleased that Mauna Kea has retained all if its charm and the uniqueness of a 5 star resort. Our ocean view room offered great views of whales breaching and dramatic sunsets. We enjoyed meals at all the restaurants. Of note: inclusive breakfast buffet for Platinum Elite members, excellent swimming at Mauna Kea Beach, fabulous Robert Trent Jones golf course, and the best Mai Tai’s we’ve had on this trip.

Outstanding in every way

The resort was absolutely outstanding down to all the little details. We were greeted with leis and fresh guava juice. We enjoyed a large oceanfront room that was so quiet and serene. Although it was pricey, it definitely gave you your money’s worth. They came by your room in the evening to give more fresh water and towels if needed. We enjoyed in-room dining to relax, and also played tennis during the day. The courts and instructors are fantastic. Dan worked with us and gave me tips that were simple to help improve my game. Loved every minute. If I were going back to Hawaii, I wouldn’t stay anywhere else!

My review is long overdue: We stayed here for a week in October to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday. We used Marriott points & paid for a beachfront upgrade. As Platinum members we were happy to receive the buffet which is excellent. Nice check-in process and we had a welcome bottle of champagne in our room! A few of the amazing things: Room layout is great with huge bathroom, you can see the ocean from the shower, bar area with a fridge. Very comfy beds. Great workout facility and staff, Peleton bikes and very clean. The beach is one of the best we've ever seen - uncrowded, good snorkeling on both sides of the beach, very clean & soft sand. We used the hiking trail several times - right along the coast and you can take it over to the Westin next door. Housekeeping was good, our beachfront was close to the pool & short walk to beach. Great sized deck with very comfy chairs and privacy. We ate dinner once at Manta - it was good but pricey. The Copper Bar was not great - poor service & meals there were disappointing. Hua Tree was good for a simple dinner. The hotel is not super fancy and isn't perfect but we are very frequent travelers and this will be our go-to spot from now on.We cannot wait to go back. It felt like home and we still talk about how much we loved it.

Incredible

We went to the public beach and ended up staying for the day at the hotel . The Hua Tree tiki bar/restaurant off the beach is amazing / great service. One of our family members had to use a walker and even though we weren’t staying there the staff was super nice . I can not imagine how great they must treat their hotel guests. The golf course along he ocean is simply spectacular the beach is perfect. The hotel lobby itself is beautiful.
