Kohala Coast, HI
Just down Kohala's Lava coast, the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel is the kind of place families return to year after year. Children of long-time guests bring their children, wanting the same room, the same art on the wall, the same smiling staff.
This is the elegant, world-class hotel that Laurance Rockefeller built over 30 years ago as the ultimate family retreat. Today the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel has been restored to its original splendor and continues to attract sophisticated clientele the world over.
The world-renowned Mauna Kea Beach Hotel is located on beautiful Kauna'oa Bay, considered by many to be the island's single most picturesque beach. Crescent-shaped with pure white sands and shimmering aqua waters, it is perfect for water sports including swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, sailing, kayaking, catamaran riding, whale watching and deep-sea fishing.
