Mauna Kea Beach Hotel is one of the finest Big Island resorts in Hawaii. Founded by Laurance S. Rockefeller in 1965, who knew that the lovely Kohala Coast deserved an equally grand hotel, Mauna Kea Beach Hotel went through recent renovations in 2008 in order to maintain that unmatched beauty and comfort. In fact, Apple Vacations has ranked it as a perfect 6/6 Golden Apple destination, meaning it is the premium standard for amenities, service, and fun times.
This golf resort offers an 18-hole course, along with 11 tennis courts, nail and hair salon, boutique shopping, world-class restaurants, and a fabulous spa. Learn more about what makes Mauna Kea Beach Hotel perfect for Hawaii vacations.

Things to Do in Hawaii
One of the main reasons to choose Mauna Kea Beach Hotel is that it is considered a top golf resort in Hawaii and the entire United States. Mauna Kea Beach Golf Club designed by Robert Trent Jones is an 18-hole championship-caliber course that utilizes the beauty of the Hawaiian landscape. Golfers can also practice on at the driving range or putting green, before dining at the Number 3 Restaurant.
For guests who want to stay active, but don’t play golf, then there are plenty of other things to do in Hawaii that require more than sitting poolside. Eleven beachside tennis courts are available on-site, fishing, surfing, and scuba diving let you explore the Pacific, and complimentary Nautilus equipment and a jogging trail allow for a quick workout.
