Constructed in 1965 by wealthy businessman Laurance S. Rockefeller, the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel was named one of the most lavish hotels in the world for its time. The wide semicircle where white-sand beach meets turquoise ocean, backed by mountains spurred the nature-lover to create a haven for others. Although it’s undergone updates and renovations since that time, the hotel continues to receive accolades including Conde Nast Traveler's Gold List in 2015.
The hotel boasts two championship golf courses, a spa and salon, tennis and fitness facilities and watersports. There’s a museum-quality collection of Asian and Pacific Rim art for those inclined to take a tour. Restaurant options include fine dining, poolside bites and a casual grill. Don’t miss the weekly clam bake or luau experience.
All rooms have private lanais with either ocean or mountain views and feature bright tropical colors in contemporary patterns and furniture.
