The living space of each Bungalow invites ultimate relaxation with indoor and outdoor living featuring locally-inspired artworks by Hawaiian artists and stylish Koa furniture. The private outdoor Jacuzzi and heated swimming pool create a laidback setting for socializing or quiet enjoyment.

On the grounds of this magnificent 3,200-acre deluxe resort, guests can enjoy the ambiance of ancient Hawaii in the mystical fish ponds and petroglyphs, or relax in oceanfront cabanas and hammocks. The Mauna Lani Bay Hotel has a reputation for outstanding service; and perfect Kohala weather provides a wonderful opportunity to enjoy outdoor fun. Whether enjoying a morning tee time between ink-jet black lava and lush greens, getting pampered at the uniquely Hawaiian inspired Mauna Lani Spa or dining ocean-front at the legendary Canoe House restaurant... Mauna Lani allows you to be yourself. Discover your own journey of relaxation and luxury at Mauna Lani on the Big Island of Hawaii.

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.
