Property Overview

On the dramatic Kohala Coast, Mauna Lani’s secluded beaches, coral reefs, and ancient fishponds set the stage for a memorable Hawaiian getaway. This hotel's design is highly unique with bright, inviting pops of color. One thing we love is how accessible everything is on property: wander down to the Surf Shack, connecting the Great Lawn to an expansive white sand beach. After exploring the storied coastline, make new memories with dinner at the celebrated CanoeHouse. All of these oceanfront experiences are just short walks between each other, keeping all of Mauna Lani well within reach.
