    Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, Autograph Collection
    Kohala Coast, HI
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1530 reviewsTripAdvisor (1530)

    The Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, Autograph Collection is one the Big Island's more historical properties: In the 1960s, the site was hand-picked by founder Laurance S. Rockefeller specifically for its beautiful crescent-shaped shoreline. Although most of the original architecture was battered in 2006 by an earthquake, the modern and sweeping redesign lends a sense of fresh and airy luxury to the hotel. Each of the 252 spacious rooms comes appointed with minifridges, flat-screen TVs and your very own lanai (Hawaiian for "veranda") off of the bedroom. Although this hotel may not be as flashy some of the Big Island's other luxury resorts, you will find a Robert Trent Jones, Sr. golf course, the full-service Mauna Kea Spa by Mandara and seaside tennis courts. The Mauna Kea Beach Hotel also boasts several restaurants, all of which serve up different island-inspired cuisine, but note that some require advanced reservations. Recent guests had glowing praise for the adjacent beach, one of the island's best, though the service throughout the hotel received mixed reviews. Keep in mind that Marriot Bonvoy members can use or redeem points by choosing to stay here.
