Big Island, Hawaii, United States of America
Mauna Kea Beach Hotel
  • Set on one of the calmest and most beautiful beaches on the island

  • Family friendly hotel with children's activity programme

  • Elegantly refurbished in Hawaiian style

  • Championship golf course right next door

Just a 40 minute drive from Kona airport, the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel is tucked away from the main highway, approached via a winding road through the stunning Championship golf course that wraps itself around the property.

The architectural style of the hotel has won awards and the hotel is deemed a historic building, however, the overall style of the hotel may not immediately appeal, however, with this hotel, please don't judge a book by its cover.

With a huge repeat clientele, this very well established hotel is definitely doing something right. From the inviting swimming pool to the idyllic beach, one of the most beautiful and calmest on the island, it is an ideal destination for a relaxing stay on the Big Island.

The hotel offers 252 rooms and suites, making it one of the smallest hotels on the coast and ensuring a more intimate and personalised experience. Most rooms enjoy stunning views of the ocean from their private lanai's and the feel of the hotel is spacious and airy with the atrium style interior and outdoor living design.

Families are well catered for with a children's programme as well as family friendly pool and beach as well as suite style accommodation. Connecting rooms are also available on request.

For adults, the relaxing spa, generous sporting facilities and activities, not to mention the al fresco lounges and dining at the romantic Manta's restaurant, overlooking the ocean, will appeal. The evening fire pits, once lit at sunset, are a welcome gathering place for those who wish to enjoy the star filled sky or the regular visits from the curious manta rays who hunt for plankton in the water just below.

Beneath the somewhat unattractive exterior, the heart of the Mauna Kea lies in it's warm welcome, fantastic facilities, friendly service and beautiful location. A gem hidden away and well worth a stay on this fascinating island.
