      Mauna Lani Resort

      Unique and memorable experiences are the last true luxury, and Mauna Lani Resort offers plenty. Nestled at the base and spiritual center of the Big Island’s five great mountains, it is the perfect starting point for new adventures.

      From snorkeling in the bountiful waters of the Pacific Ocean to exploring ancient petroglyphs and black lava outcroppings that give way to pristine white sand, many surprises await those who set foot in this resort paradise.


      There are many luxury resorts in the world but what sets Mauna Lani apart is authenticity. Beyond its elegantly appointed suites and impeccable service, it is rooted in the Big Island’s natural landscape, diverse heritage, and way of life. From bike rides and water escapades to hula dancing and learning to play the ukulele, life on the resort goes with the ebb and flow of the surrounding environment.

      Over the decades, Mauna Lani Resort has come to represent many things to different people – a beach getaway, a bucket list item, a spiritual retreat, a wedding destination, or a home away from home. To real estate investors and seasoned travelers, it represents the highest standards in resort-style living and global hospitality.

      With breathtaking views of the surrounding volcanoes, historic preserves, and the Kohala Coast, the resort creates the feeling of being part of something larger. Whether you enjoy life on the fast lane or simply want to drift with the current, there is a place for wanderers of all kinds at Mauna Lani Resort.


      Mauna Lani Resort is situated within Hawaii’s South Kohala District. This prime stretch of real estate starts in Pauoa Bay on the north end and extends all the way to the southern boundary between the Ke Kailani at Mauna Lani and Waikoloa Beach Resort and further inland to Queen Ka’ahumanu Highway. It lies north of the Keauhou-Kona International Airport which offers car rentals and shuttle service.

      The resort is within driving distance to beaches, cascading falls, diving spots, and farmers markets, making it an excellent choice for those with a packed itinerary. It is also easily accessible from the intersection of Queen Ka’ahumanu Highway and Mauna Lani Drive. With a gated entrance that serves as the only designated access point for vehicles, the resort offers privacy and exclusivity to its guests.

      The resort grounds adjoin state lands that separate its northernmost section from the nearby Puako Beach Subdivision. Mauna Kea Beach Resort is located five miles north of this stunning property while Waikoloa Beach Resort is located along the southern boundary.

      Brief history

      Mauna Lani Resort was once the ancestral oceanfront home and fishing grounds of Hawaiian monarchs. It was the estate of Francis Hyde I’i Brown, a golf champion and real estate developer who descended from royalty. A chance meeting with Tokyu Corporation of Japan Chairman Noboru Gotoh at the 1964 Tokyo Olympics would plant the seeds for a future resort.

      They envisioned a world-class resort on the secluded property – one that had a distinct history and identity. That vision has come to fruition with the opening of Mauna Lani Resort, which has turned into one of the most sought-after communities in Hawaii.

      What it’s known for

      The resort is primarily known for the Mauna Lani Beach Club, where the sandy shoreline provides access to Makaiwa Bay. There are also other beaches in and around the resort, providing countless opportunities for swimming, kayaking, and snorkeling. With fantastic weather year-round, the area is ideal for walking, jogging, and cycling.

      In addition to these spectacular beaches, the resort has top-rated golf courses, tennis courts, swimming pools, trendy restaurants, upscale boutiques, and a wide range of sports and cultural activities. However, the resort’s most unique offerings are its prehistoric fishing village, anchialine fishpond complex, and rock carvings. Mauna Lani Resort is surrounded by volcanic peaks with Kaniku lava flowing on its southern section.
