Hawaii, United States
The Mauna Kea Resort is our recommendation for the perfect Hawaii golf vacation destination. Mauna Kea golf resort is located on the Kohala Coast on the Big Island of Hawaii. It sits at Kaunaʻoa Bay. The hotel was named Mauna Kea Beach Hotel for the mountain Mauna Kea which is visible above the bay. This historic property was developed and financed by Laurance Rockefeller in 1965. Four decades and a $150 million renovation later, the hotel reigns as a landmark of elegance.
The open-air design allows natural ventilation from Pacific trade winds. All guest rooms offer a private lanai with views of the ocean or the golf course. Mauna Kea golf course is one of the most spectacular courses in Hawaii and among the worlds most beautiful. Mauna Kea is recognized as the grand dame of all Hawaii courses constantly ranked as the state’s top course. Guests of the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel also get preferred access to the Haupuna located 10 minutes away.
