By October 14, 2023Places to Stay

Recently renovated and now a part of the luxurious Auberge collection, the Mauna Lani by Auberge has established itself as one of the premier hotels on the Big Island of Hawaii.  Located within the Mauna Lani Resort on the golden Kohala Coast of the Big Island of Hawaii this hotel is not only located in a place with a lot of beauty, but with a lot of Hawaiian history.

Each guest room is spacious and offers on average 575 square feet of space.  You can choose from oceanfront, ocean view, partial ocean view, garden view, or mountain view rooms.  The rooms, recently upgraded in 2019, offer a king size bed or two twins.  There is a nice sitting area for relaxing and reading a book.  The lanai offers a great place to sit, relax, and enjoy the view.  Each bathroom features at least one vanity and a walk in shower.  For those looking for larger accommodations, there is a selection of suites that range in size from 1,000 square feet to over 4,000 square feet.  For those desiring some of the finest accommodations on the Big Island of Hawaii, the Residences at Mauna Lani are great choices.

All guests at the Mauna Lani get access to the white sand beach that it is nestled upon as well as the two pools.  At the beach you will find resort style lounge chairs as well as beach service staff to take care of you.  The waters off this beach are very calm and great for snorkeling.  This area is one of the best areas on the island to snorkel if you are interested in seeing sea turtles.  Closer to the main area of the hotel is one of the pools.  This resort style pool is large and offers a large jacuzzi.  Find nice lounge chairs surrounding the pool and take in the amazing views.   Just off of this pool is a nice grassy area that is great for children to play at and there are a selection of games found here.  Nestled away from the main pool is an infinity pool that is best suited for adults.  This pool is surrounded by lounge chairs and also offers an amazing view.

For those that enjoy good dining options, the Mauna Lani will not disappoint.  The CanoeHouse has been one of the top restaurants on the island for decades.  The CanoeHouse is on an oceanfront setting and offers indoor as well as outdoor seating.  While the outdoor seating offers great ambiance, the indoors seating has casual couch style dining, which is a great option.  There is a nice sized bar with seating inside as well.  Featuring a selection of farm to table restaurants, you will need to dine here a few times to taste all the amazing dishes.  Often times they also offer a four course dinner and this never disappoints.   If you are not looking for fine dining, HaLani is the other option.  HaLani is the primary place for breakfast and lunch and also is open for dinner.  For the most part you will find open air covered seating here and it flows out to the lawn area near the pool with more casual seating there.  For breakfast they offer a traditional breakfast buffet, for lunch your standard lunch offerings including local fish, and for dinner more casual local ohana style dishes.  If you are looking for something fast, The Market is located within the main hotel and offers quick grab and go food that is great for breakfast or a fast snack.  The Surf Shack is located between the beach and pool on the lawn area and also offers a small selection of food and beverages that is a nice spot to grab a quick bite to eat.

For those with children between the ages of 5-12, there is the Holoholo Kids Crew club.  Children that attend this club get to experience a lot of fun aspects of Hawaii including gardening, fishing, and tidepooling amongst other things.

The Mauna Lani Resort features two world class golf courses that weave amongst the black lava rocks and private homes and some of the holes have spectacular settings right on the ocean.  Guests of the Mauna Lani have access to these two courses.

The Mauna Lani by Auberge offers this and so much more and is a great place to spend the perfect Hawaiian vacation.
