Mauna Kea Beach Hotel on the Kohala Coast, Hawaii
"Every great beach deserves a great hotel."
This was said by Laurance S. Rockefeller, who founded The Mauna Kea Beach Hotel in 1965. He knew the great beach at Kauna'oa also deserved spectacular golf and exceptional dining to accompany the most exclusive and expensive resort of its day. Four decades later, following a $150 million repair and renovation, The Mauna Kea once again stands as a landmark of luxury on the Big Island's golden Kohala Coast.
In the restaurants, exciting new sights, sounds, scents and sensational tastes elevate the experience of dining in our luxury Hawaii hotel.

With a timeless tradition of aloha, The Mauna Kea Beach Hotel welcomes generations of guests to come and be inspired by the past, embraced by the moment, enchanted by the warm days and exciting possibilities ahead.
