Considered the crown jewel of the Kohala Coast, the Mauna Kea Resort, conceived and developed by Laurance S. Rockefeller, first opened in 1965. Today, the 1,839 acres Mauna Kea Resort is anchored by two world-class hotels, the iconic 252 room Mauna Kea Beach Hotel and the 249 room Westin Hapuna Beach Resort. The hotels each front two of the most beautiful, natural white sand beaches in Hawaii, Kauna’oa Bay and Hapuna Beach. No other hotel or resort on the Big Island can match the beach frontage and access to the pristine ocean waters of the Mauna Kea Resort.
In addition to the two spectacular white sand beaches, Mauna Kea Resort includes two championship 18-hole golf courses; the Robert Trent Jones designed Mauna Kea Golf Course, considered the benchmark for all other golf courses in Hawaii. This course was recently rated the #1 golf course on the Big Island and #12 overall in the Top 100 by Golf Magazine.
The Arnold Palmer-designed Hapuna Golf Course is a links-style course that begins at the 700’ elevation and offers sweeping ocean views from almost every hole. In addition to golf, resort guests and property owners have access to the highly acclaimed oceanfront 11-court Seaside Tennis Club, two fitness centers, Museum quality Pacific and Asian art collection, numerous restaurants, and soul-soothing therapies and body treatments at the new Mauna Kea Spa.
Mauna Kea Resort is the lowest density resort on the Kohala Coast and the only property that has a natural, rolling topography raising from sea level to approximately 1,000 feet above sea level. This gradual change in elevation affords guests and property owners unparalleled ocean, coastline, sunset views, and views of the Island of Maui.
