Within the Christmas season all the resorts on the Big Island try to make the resort and the hotels more festive. None of them do it as well as the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel. Every year I look forward to going to the hotel to see what they have to offer.
The lobby is filled with various Christmas trees decorated by classes at local schools as well as non profit organizations around the island. You will also find the palms decorated with lights as well as beautiful poinsettias spread throughout the lobby.
If you vacation to Hawaii during the Christmas holidays I would highly recommend spending an evening dining at the CanoeHouse at Mauna Lani Bay and walking around enjoying the festive setting.
Mauna Lani Terrace offers some upscale vacation rental condos nearby.
