Paradise Awaits

Among Travel + Leisure’s 20 Best Resorts in Hawaii, Mauna Lani - meaning “mountain reaching heaven” - holds the key to untapped adventure.

This itinerary is designed to be fully customized based on the guest's individual preferences and availability at the time of booking.

Day 1: Arrival

Afternoon | Settle In

Roam the grounds of this storied resort, play lawn games at the Surf Shack or decompress after a day of travel with poolside service. If you’re feeling up to it, cruise to nearby Puakō Petroglyph Archaeological Preserve on a beach cruiser, complimentary for Mauna Lani guests.

Afternoon | Explore Hawai'i Island

Home to two active volcanoes, eight climate zones and more than 1,200 unique species of marine life, Hawai’i Island is renowned for its natural wonder. Snorkel with spinner dolphins at Honaunau Bay, soar to new heights in a private helicopter tour or traverse one of many hikes from Honoka’a to Hilo.
