Mauna Kea Beach Hotel:

Resort Overview:

Mauna Key Beach Hotel has welcomed generations of guests to its secluded, 60-acre property on the sunny Kohala Coast since opening in 1965 as Hawaii Island’s first resort. Five decades after its opening, this Laurance S. Rockefeller-developed hotel continues to stand as one-of-a-kind on Hawaii Island’s golden Kohala Coast. With a timeless tradition of aloha, guests are welcomed to renew and reconnect in a setting of understated elegance.


Mauna Kea Beach Hotel sits on one of the few white-sand beaches on the Kohala Coast – Kauna’oa Bay. Unlike most beaches on the island, which are formed from coral or lava, the sand here is silica. The shape and terrain of the bay make it a perfect haven for relaxing, swimming and paddling.

All guest rooms and suites feature scenic ocean or golf course views and large, furnished lanai (balconies). They are imbued with understated elegance matched with just the right touch of modern comfort and connectivity.

Dining at Mauna Kea is as dynamic as the magical setting. The legendary 18-hole Mauna Kea Golf Course, the first course built on the island, established Hawaii as a golfer’s paradise. It is complemented by the 11-court Seaside Tennis Club and an array of beach and cultural activities.

Come to the Big Island, and reconnect with life’s simplest and most authentic pleasures at Mauna Kea Beach Hotel.
