Mauna Kea Beach Resort on the Big Island of Hawaii

Mauna Kea Beach Resort on the Big Island of Hawaii offers the ultimate luxury resort experience.  Built atop stunning sea cliffs around the spectacular Kauna’oa Bay, Mauna Kea was the first area developed along the Kohala Coast.  Lawrence Rockefeller combed the Kona & Kohala Coasts of the Big Island in the early 1960s and selected this location as the site of this special place.
