Mauna Kea Beach Hotel

Founded by Laurance Rockefeller, the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel is tucked alongside the Hawaiian coast on Kauna’oa Beach, one of Hawaii’s most celebrated. This honeymoon hotel is beautiful inside and out, from its beachfront setting to the understated elegance of its 258 luxurious rooms and suites…the romance of Hawaii’s Big Island flows through its halls.
Lounge on the beach, play 18 holes at the championship golf course, sip a smooth white merlot at the wine bar, get a taste of true island flavor with a clam bake or party like a Polynesian at the hotel’s luau party held twice a week. Shop at boutiques along peaceful koi ponds, attend a sunset ceremony at dinner or snorkel your hearts out.
To take a break from all the action and soothe your souls, get a full body treatment at the Mauna Kea spa. You could enjoy a full-fledged romantic getaway without ever leaving the hotel grounds, but the whole Big Island of Hawaii is at your disposal at the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel. Take an exciting ride, whether it’s on helicopter or horseback. Snorkel and dive in the bays and discover a new world of creatures in the sea, relax all day with beach cocktails or hike to the summit of a black volcano…no matter what your perfect honeymoon vision is, it’s certain to be waiting for you at the Mauna Kea Beach hotel on the Big Island of Hawaii.
