Mauna Lani Resort

Mauna Lani is one of the most natural resorts you’ll find anywhere in Hawaii especially given the size and scope of this magnificent 3200 acre getaway. It is well known that through a succession of “enlightened stewardship” efforts this destination always realized the importance of preserving the natural sites, culture and history of Mauna Lani.

All the way back in the 1930’s Francis I’I Brown the territorial representative, extraordinary fisherman and avid sportsman began acquiring and protecting the land that is now Mauna Lani. Kalahuipua’a, is the heart of Mauna Lani’s cultural heritage. No place is the resort’s history and spirit more alive then at this oasis of ancient fishponds surrounded by indigenous plant life. The fishponds, the Eva Parker Woods Cottage Museum and the large Petroglyph Archaeological Preserve are but a few examples of the culturally significant sites that you will find at Mauna Lani.

The world-renowned Mauna Lani Bay Hotel & Bungalows offers luxurious ocean view guest rooms that are elegant and cater to the high tech traveler. As a guest of the bungalows at Mauna Lani Bay, just steps from the golf course and the beach, you will enjoy the utmost privacy, set amidst lush gardens and blue lagoons. Here is an exclusive enclave of 5 spacious bungalows each with two master bedrooms, dining room, lanai and a dedicated staff to cater to your every whim.

Ranked among the worlds best the Mauna Lani Spa continues the resort’s theme of cultural heritage by offering a unique spa setting reminiscent of a Hawaiian village with indoor and outdoor hales and treatment rooms. The spa treatments are based on Hawaiian healing methods that will renew and invigorate your mind and body.

Mauna Lani’s two golf courses are legendary for stunning views and great holes. Mauna Lani’s original golf course opened back in 1981 to rave reviews. In 1991 the course was halved and architect Robin Nelson added two more nine-hole layouts, thus creating the North and South Courses. The two courses are both superb and are surprisingly different in both style and character.

While the South Course is probably more famous because of the national TV exposure from over a decade of hosting the Senior Skins Game, the North Course is actually a more difficult test. As the course winds its way out to the sea and back toward the mountains you will be treated to phenomenal views and quality golf holes. The bunkering is exquisite and visually you will immediately notice a spectacular contrast between the green grass, the stark black lava, the white sand and the mighty blue Pacific.

The South Course at Mauna Lani was the home of the popular Senior Skins Game during the entire decade of the 1990’s. During that time the legends of the game treated millions of viewers worldwide to brilliant shot making and breathtaking warm weather vistas in the dead of winter. The South Course epitomizes oceanfront golf in Hawaii at its best and now the South Course is the home of the Hawaii State Open.

Mauna Lani is truly an exceptional place with a wonderful blend of history, culture, activity and nature. It’s time for you to discover Mauna Lani.
