Mauna Kea Beach Hotel’s rich past provides the resort with an elegance and refined sense of tradition and place. In the present, it offers beautiful, exciting Hawaii experiences. The aloha is everlasting.
A beloved resort since it opened in 1965, Mauna Kea Beach Hotel was founded by noted conservationist Laurance S. Rockefeller, who spotted the perfect white sand crescent of Kauna‘oa Bay and visualized an elegant, luxury resort that reflected the spirit of that incredible location. The resulting Mauna Kea Beach Hotel –HAWAII ISLAND’S FIRST RESORT – has, ever since, provided its guests with a perfect mix of exceptional golf, tennis, ocean and cultural activities as well as serene and luxurious relaxation on the Big Island.
Guest rooms and suites, all with either ocean or golf course views, are carefully maintained to honor Rockefeller’s tradition of understated tropical elegance while providing modern comforts and connectivity.
