Amidst mountains and the sea on the sunny Kohala Coast on the tropical island of Hawaii, the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel and Bungalows offers an exceptional experience with unparalleled value. Discover why Travel + Leisure consistently rates them one of the "Top Hotels in the World". Mauna Lani is an exquisite blend of sophisticated luxury and Hawaiian hospitality.

Accommodations range from spacious guest rooms to incredibly luxurious bungalows. The Bungalows were completely renovated in 2012. 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 3200-acre deluxe resort, guests can enjoy the ambience 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 oceanfront 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 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.

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.

Please note: The hotel will be closing October 1, 2018 and will be undergoing a $100 million renovation, expecting to re-open in late 2019. We look forward to hosting you again in a newly transformed Mauna Lani Bay Hotel & Bungalows

    Lovely and convenient

    This rental was perfect for our group of six. The house is spacious, well appointed including laundry, clean and we especially enjoyed the second floor porch. There is a well stocked ( a bit pricey) grocery store about a 3 minute walk away and that made our stay extra easy. It is quiet area and feels safe. Would definitely rent again!

    beautiful house and resort

    We had such a great time renting a house with our friends on this resort. The beach club has the most amazing snorkeling. We felt like we were snorkeling in an aquarium and loved being able to run in the resort, rent snorkel equipment, paddle board and enjoy the beach! We will definitely come back.

    Amazing property

    We didn’t stay at the resort but we did come up and enjoy the grounds. Locals walked us over to the secret pond and we had a free fish pedicure. We then walked out to beach past the eels. It was so lovely.

    Fantastic experience at Mauna Lani Terrace

    We just had a wonderful experience after renting for seven nights at Mauna Lani Terrace. Fantastic location with beautiful views over the fish ponds and out to the ocean. Very close to the small and quiet ocean front with cabanas to lay out on. So many sea turtles right there and wonderful snorkeling. The beach club is a very short walk if you want sandy beach for kids and the shops/restaurants are only a short walk too. Great location.

    Good, better, best?

    This is a beautiful facility on an outstandingly beautiful Island. We stayed there in June 2018 just as management was preparing for a major update and renovation. They promised to make it the finest place to stay on the island. This should be worth a try since even before the renovation it was a great place. I'd like to stay again once they finish the renovation.
