mauna lani hawaii

An oceanfront sanctuary, Mauna Lani sits on the sunny Kohala Coast of Hawaii’s Big Island. With 10 of the world’s 14 different climate zones, Big Island is an incredible place to visit, with landscapes ranging from desert to rainforest to periglacial. And within view of four volcanoes and fronting a sprawling stretch of coral-fringed beach amid ancient Kalahuipua’a fishponds, if you’re looking for a property with adventure and relaxation in equal measure, there’s no better place.

Since its opening in 1983, Mauna Lani has welcomed generations of guests to experience the spiritual energy of the storied Kohala Coast. Maintaining its ties to ancient Hawaiian culture, each of the rooms boasts authentic décor, with natural fabrics and varied textures that capture the essence of the island. Best of all, thanks to the shape of the building, nearly all of the rooms have ocean views.

Choose from contemporary suites, ideal for large families with extensive sweeping views or, for an entirely exclusive experience, opt for one of the sea-view private homes. Secluded and conveniently located, these private gated properties are steps away from the beach and afford stunning views of five ancient mountains, with sun-drenched indoor-outdoor living areas, a full gourmet kitchen, a swimming pool and a jacuzzi.

Mauna Lani’s restaurants offer a variety of dining experiences. Wake up each morning to Kona coffee and acai bowls at HāLani, spend the day lounging poolside enjoying freshly grilled tacos and homemade lemonade before dining barefoot in the evening at the Canoe House where people have savoured the island’s bounty for decades or in front of a crackling firepit for a starlit feast.

With Mauna Lani as your base, there are an amazing array of activities and experiences on your doorstep. Whether it be a surf lesson with a world-class athlete, hiking Kalahuipua‘a volcano, or a sunrise diving experience, in Hawaii there is every ocean pursuit imaginable. Chase the horizon in a Hawaiian outrigger canoe, hone your stand-up paddle skills, or learn about the royal fishponds and sea turtles with Pi‘i, the resident marine biologist. Embracing the ancient expertise of watermen and women, you can also partake in cultural workshops of coconut frond weaving or navigate the high seas for a stunning whale watching trip. After a long day on the water, kick back and relax with a rejuvenating and enriching spa treatment of local Hawaiian oils, herbs, honey and flowers.
