Mauna Kea Beach Hotel

On the sunny Kohala Coast, Mauna Kea stands as a landmark of luxury with a timeless tradition of Aloha. Situated on a beautiful crescent beach, the luxury resort offers guests the ideal setting for a relaxing getaway in paradise.


Enjoy a variety of guest rooms from one-of-a-kind Presidential Suites to Deluxe Oceanview rooms with extra large soaking tubs and separate rain showers, or choose from the recently refreshed Beachfront wing just steps from Kaunaoa Bay. The 254 luxury guestrooms and suites are elegantly furnished, featuring crisp, clean lines, cloud white and bold sunset colors along with wonderful views from the wide lanai. Amenities include large flat screen TVs, media hubs, bedside iPod dock with clock radios, and luxury L’Occitane bath products.

The hotel’s restaurants incorporate a creative combination of international cuisine with fresh, local Kohala Coast ingredients. The hotel also offers an unforgettable Sunday brunch buffet, a Mauna Kea tradition, with all your breakfast and lunch favorites enhanced with selections of savory brunch specialties, including a “temptation table” with irresistible desserts. Indulge your appetite at the weekly Clambake, a longstanding tradition that’s still the Big Island’s most remarkable seafood buffet.


The Mauna Kea Hawaiian Lu‘au completes the experience with a taste of culture shared through music, food and family tradition.

The hotel provides almost endless recreation options for guests including tennis courts, and the legendary Mauna Kea Golf Course offers a rewarding Big Island golf experience for golfers of every level. Children will enjoy the Keiki Club and scheduled programs including building sandcastles on the beach, shoreline explorations of the Kohala Coast and Hawaiian arts and crafts. There is a variety of beach and watersports, or relax and soak up the absolute luxury of unscheduled time in a plush poolside cabana.
