Mauna Lani Resort is a luxury golf resort with two championship golf courses, Mauna Lani North and South. Both golf courses offer a challenging experience to novice and professional golf enthusiasts alike. Mauna Lani has received Golf Magazine's Gold Medal Award every year since 1988 and was host to the Senior Skins Golf Game for 11 years. The Big Island golf courses are masterpieces of design, each strikingly different, yet equally challenging. Each course is a world apart geographically, and in playing experience.

The Mauna Lani Spa is a uniquely Hawaiian day spa retreat ranked one of the "World's Best Spas" by Travel & Leisure magazine. The spa resort is a reflection of the Island of Hawaii's splendid range of geographic wonders. The luxury spa resembles a Hawaiian village with thatched hale for treatments, two natural lava saunas, a meditation pavilion and a watsu pool. Treatments include traditional Hawaiian therapies, baths, body treatments, and massage therapy.

Greening Your Life: Part of the Apple Vacations Greening Your Life initiative, this property is recognized by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of Energy (DOE) for significantly advancing the development of green power. The resort also generates the most solar electric power of any luxury resort in the world.

All golf courses are watered using 3 million gallons of brackish water each day, and a large percentage of the golf operation's electricity is provided by solar power.

A sustainable menu for meetings and events includes products harvested within a 100-mile radius.

I stayed here for 5 nights with my wife and two sons, ages 12 and 13. We loved it. It was Spring Break time and it did not feel overcrowded at all. I made a mistake on my booking (100% my fault), and the hotel changed it without penalty to me. I was so impressed by that. Lovey at the front desk helped us out! You get one beach cabana with your rental for free (the kind with the umbrella attached to the chairs that you can move as the sun moves, not a true umbrella. We had a ground floor room which was such convenient access to the pool and beach. Food at the pool bar was not great, but service was (Cindy I think). There is a whole second beach a bit to the south, which is where Napua (sp) restaurant was. The food there at lunch was superb, but you cannot room charge there. actually, that beach is nicer than the one at the pool. That same beach offers great snorkeling from shore. The hotel as a whole is a bit dated but considering I paid only $325 per night on Spring Break, it was a bargain. The resort fee includes valet parking as well, which is nice. My only knocks on the place were that they could spruce some areas up a bit and the beds are uncomfortable. We stayed 5 days at the Fairmont next door after we left the Mauna Lani. I thought the two hotels basically equivalent with Fairmont being about 20% more costly. My wife and kids actually slightly preferred the Mauna Lani. i would return. BTW, these beaches were not my favorites either--lots or rock and coral, but what you then get is great snorkeling. Everything is a tradeoff!

Absolutely Blown Away! Fantastic Hotel...

This was our first stop on our visit of 3 Hawaiian islands last fall. My fiance and I stayed at this hotel for 5 nights, and it had absolutely everything we could possibly want... and more! First off, the service, and friendliness of the staff was among the best we'd ever experienced in the World, and we've been to quite a few nice hotels. The rooms were spacious and elegantly updated. We ended up getting a ground level suite, which walked out to the water. The view was absolutely magnificent, and eating breakfast on the balcony overlooking the water every morning was an experience we'll never forget. It was the perfect place to start our Hawaiian adventure. When I say this facility had everything, I mean it. A shopping plaza within walking distance, with everything you need for your stay, two immaculate beach fronts with some of the most amazing coral reef you'll ever see. If you like snorkling, you'll be in heaven at this hotel... so much coral, so many fish, so many bright colors, and you don't even have to leave the grounds to see it. It's a magnificent waterfront. There is a state of the art fitness facility, with top notch tennis courts, and a very nice cardio room. The breakfast buffets were great, and the restaurants at the hotel are fantastic, with great ambiance! We visited them a few nights out of our stay, and were very happy with the food. There is even a Lava Tube trial right on premises. Which was so cool to walk around and see. The only drawback might be that the grounds are quite big at this hotel, and even though everything is in walking distance, you can do a lot of walking trying to get to everything. But, to address this, they offer guests complimentary bicycles to take out with them as they get around the facility. Honestly one of the best hotels we've ever stayed at... Very happy with this place, can't recommend it enough!

A slice of paradise.

My family had a wonderful stay at this resort. The weather and facilities were perfect. There is nothing we could fault. It was a truly relaxing experience with something for everyone to see and do on the island. We went to Volcanos National Park. Saw lava explode by night. We watched stars from the observatory, an unobstructed, unpolluted amazing view. We went whale watching and saw lots of hump backed whales and dolphins. My husband played golf and couldn't say enough positive things about his experience from the state of the course to the amazing views along the way. Breath taking.

So much Aloha (LOVE)

If what your looking for is a quiet, relaxing, romantic, Ohana get away... the Mauna Lani Hotel is definitely a place to check in. First of all, it's the only place on the Big Island that truly knows the meaning of ALOHA. First impression of the property 5 stars. You are greeted by warm and friendly valet workers. Valet is 24 hrs. Receptionist(s) very welcoming and quick. Property is not to large but large enough for privacy. They have live turtles and hammer head sharks that swim in the salt water ponds around the hotel. There are a few restaurants located on the property as well, all walking distance. Beautiful beach area with lots of space to walk and lounge around with a bar and sports activities desk. Multiple pools and a friendly staff to serve you when you want drinks and food. Cabanas, large lounge seats and multiple hammocks also available around the pool and beach area. The room..... we stayed in an ocean front room right on the first floor. It had an amazing view and located right next to an amazing restaurant, The Canoe House. Large bathroom area with his and her sinks. I believe we had a king size bed with comfy soft pillows. My now Fiancé, had set up a special table for us on the beach and was served by an amazing staff. One of the few hotels that have such service. It was like a romantic movie, but actually happening in real time while the sun sets right before your eyes. For all the locals out there...this is the place to be on the Kohala coast, you'll love it! For those of you traveling to what we know as paradise, you won't be disappointed. Come see and feel our paradise and Aloha here at the Mauna Lani Hotel & Bungalows in the Big Island of Hawaii.

Beautiful grounds and beach. Great place to take a stroll along the beach and visit the fish ponds filled with Yellow Tang, Blowfish, Awa and Puhi. The hotel room was comfortable and exceptionally clean. Being treated to a bottle of champagne for our anniversary was very special.
