Every beach deserves a great hotel”!
This was spoken by Laurance Rockefeller who built the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel. Not only does it deserve a great hotel, but also a spectacular golf course, and extraordinary dining. And that is exactly what he created…..the landmark of luxury on the Kohala Coast of Hawaii.
A few years ago, his dream resort was damaged quite extensively, thanks to an earthquake. But when you have the most beautiful beach on the island, it deserves a great hotel! $150 million dollars later, the Mauna Kea is again the luxurious Hawaiian resort it was meant to be. And NO RESORT FEES!!!
Mauna Kea Beach Hotel is quite small in comparison to many of the “brand name” hotels on the island. However, being small only adds to the charm of this deluxe oceanfront resort. There are 258 luxury guest rooms and suites, with large flat screen TVs, crisp white linens, with accented with bold “sunset” colors. Each room has an IPOD dock with clock radios, mini refrigerators with bottle water replenished daily, and coffee makers with Kona coffee! Views vary from mountain view to deluxe ocean views, but each room has a wide lanai to enjoy the sea air.
Golfers particularly love the newly renovated 18 hole championship Mauna Kea Golf Course. Need a quick snack, a beer or maybe a Mai Tai? The Number 3, the new golf clubhouse restaurant is a great solution!
Keeping in shape while vacationing is sometimes a problem, but with the new 2500 square foot Fitness center and the 11 tennis courts, working of the extra calories should be a snap!
The new Mauna Kea Spa by Mandara and the enhanced beach and pool services contribute to the pampering and relaxed atmosphere we all enjoy while on vacation.
No resort is complete without food! Mauna Kea Beach Hotel not only has several restaurants, ranging in cuisine from American hamburgers and pizza at the Paviliion at Manta Ray Point, to Monettes Artisan Fish and Steak Restaurant. The Monette brothers, owners of the award-winning Flagstaff House Restaurant in Colorado, offers exquisite food and wine, at the first “modern” American steakhouse on the Big Island. Are you an oenologist, a lover of wines? The Manta and Pavilion Wine Bar will be your favorite place to eat and enjoy forty eight distinctive wines.
On Tuesdays and Fridays guests enjoy an authentic imu-roasted Kalua pig, lomi salmon and piles of pineapple and papaya. Learn to hula to the Hukilau and try a little finger-licking poi, and be amazed by the fire dancers. This is all part of the Luau at Mauna Kea Beach Hotel.
Aloha is the true spirit of this resort! The beach is amazing, the service is impeccable and the sunsets are out of this world! If this sounds like your kind of vacation experience, please give me a call at 425-821-4100 or send an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also book on line!
