One Destination, Three Storied Traditions of Adventure

Immerse yourself in ocean pursuits, cultural treasures and culinary adventures

Kainalu, or “ocean wave,” honors the eternal relationship between the mountain, “mauka,” and the sea, “makai.” Carrying on the ancient expertise of their Hawaiian elders, the world-class watermen and women of Kainalu Pro Sports link the practices of the past with the people of the present. As your outrigger canoe glides across the crystal clear waters, inching home towards Mauna Lani’s crescent of white sand beach, return to the soulful gathering place that is Surf Shack, where you, too, can share the memories you’ve made at Mauna Lani.

Wander amongst cherished lands once reserved for the greatest of Hawaiian royalty. Embrace stillness and serenity at the fabled fishpond, Kalāhuipua‘a, or visit the Eva Parker Woods Cottage, where famed golfer and senator, Francis H. I’i Brown, entertained icons of the past with a warm sense of ho’okipa, or hospitality. Step inside Hale ‘I’ike, the Hawaiian phrase for “House of Knowledge,” to talk story with resident historian, Uncle Danny Akaka, who will enlighten you with age-old wisdom and the occasional strum of a ukulele.

Gather with loved ones to enjoy each other's company and share stories. Mornings begin with freshly brewed Kona coffee, providing warmth to the mind, body and soul as you ponder the adventures that await. Midday paves way to Hawaiian staples like refreshing açai bowls, house-made ceviche and tropical salads crafted with fresh produce cultivated mere minutes from the resort. Seek balance between tradition and innovation as you cap off the evening at CanoeHouse amidst the mesmerizing glow of the golden Hawaiian sunset.
