Mauna Lani is located on the Kohala Coast on the Big Island of Hawaii. The resort includes the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel & Bungalows, Mauna Lani Spa and Mauna Lani's Francis H. I'i Brown North and South Courses. Mauna Lani is a green resort known for its devotion to preserving the cultural of Hawai'i. Mauna Lani historian Danny Akaka oversees the resort's effort to share the Hawaiian culture and rich heritage of Kalahuipua'a. The resort is nationally recognized for its Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle (honu) Program, cultural activities, and historic fishponds.
The 341 accommodations include guest rooms, suites and five ocean Bungalows. The Bungalows were completely renovated in 2012 and guestrooms and suites are being refreshed in 2013. Each guestroom features a private lanai, desk & chairs, coffee table, couch, two phones, WiFi, internet access, 45" TV, personal bar, safe, double and king size beds, refrigerator, clock radio, make-up mirror, hair dryer, umbrella & bathrobe.
The five private Bungalows are secluded yet conveniently located within a minute's walk of the hotel. Privacy is maintained with a gated driveway and private access to the beach. Each bungalow features 4,000 sq ft of living space, including two bedrooms, three baths, a private swimming pool and whirlpool spa.
The resort features two 18-hole courses, Mauna Lani North & South. Carved from lava fields, the courses are rated among the most beautiful courses in the world. The South Course was home to the Sr. Skins Game from 1989 - 2000. Mauna Lani is now home to the annual Hawaii State Open played each December.
The outdoor garden area of the spa resembles a Hawaiian village with thatched hale for treatments -- two large enough for couples, one with a Vichy shower, two natural lava saunas, a meditation pavilion and a fragrance garden. Indoor area includes beauty and treatment rooms, locker rooms, steam showers, saunas and a retail boutique.
Mauna Lani offers a myriad of dining options and activities for the entire family. Dining venus include the Bay Terrace, poolside Ocean Bar, and the oceanfront CanoeHouse featuring contemporary cuisine. Activities include catamaran sails, scuba, snorkeling, cycling, fitness, cultural classes and more.
