Mauna Lani Resort Establishes a Memorable Visit at the Kohala Coast

February 14, 2020 by Kai Anderson

A new chapter has begun at one of Hawai‘i Island’s most beloved properties. Opening its doors again in January 2020, Mauna Lani, Auberge Resorts Collection, welcomes guests to the treasured Kohala Coast haven known as Kalāhuipua‘a, which was once a celebrated getaway for the island’s ali‘i (chiefs). Now, the breathtaking destination offers a contemporary take on opulent Hawaiian serenity for the discriminating traveler. Set amid a landscape of centuries-old fishponds, tropical gardens and lava rock plains, Mauna Lani provides an urbane island retreat, with 295 guest rooms and 38 suites that soothe the senses with a contemporary yet organic design scheme. The guest experience reaches its zenith with Mauna Lani’s quintet of private bungalows, each offering 4,000 square feet of indoor-outdoor space, two bedrooms, three baths, a private swimming pool and spa, and—for a truly personal touch—a dedicated concierge who provides assistance both prior to your arrival and during your stay. When it comes time to finally explore, tempting amenities abound. Gourmands will appreciate the bevy of dining options, led by its famed signature resto, CanoeHouse. For lovers of the outdoors, look no further than Kainalu Mauka to Makai Sports, which curates a broad program of active experiences that take advantage of the natural magnificence of the environs and the Kohala region: Think horseback riding, e-bike safaris and a plethora of marine activities. But, perhaps the most unique indelible asset to Mauna Lani is Hale I‘ike, the resort’s in-depth cultural center, where Danny Akaka, the kahu hānai (knowledge-keeper), guides guests through the cultural treasures, evocative stories and incomparable experiences of Kalāhuipua‘a. Mountain View King rooms from $499 per night, 68-1400 Mauna Lani Drive, Kohala Coast, Hawai‘i Island, 657.3294
