(Reopening Late 2019)
After an investment of over $100 million, Mauna Lani will reopen November 2019 as one of Hawaii’s finest resorts. Perfectly located, 20 minutes from Kona Airport (KOA) along the exclusive, sun-drenched Kohala Coast on the Island of Hawaii (nicknamed The Big Island), the re-imagined Mauna Lani will feature 30 oceanfront acres, three miles of shoreline and draw its inspiration from its awe-inspiring setting. The dramatic redesign will touch every area, creating a new level of intimacy and maximizing the resorts oceanfront location. What will not change is Mauna Lani’s stewardship and Auberge’s commitment to preserving the historic and cultural significance of this special place.
The island of Hawaii is the youngest and largest island in the Hawaiian chain. Nearly twice as big as all of the other Hawaiian Islands combined (hence, its nickname, “Big Island”), its sheer size is awe-inspiring. You can travel through all but four of the world’s different climate zones there, ranging from Wet Tropical to Polar Tundra. From the snow-capped heights of Maunakea; from the lush valleys of the Hamakua Coast to the jet-black sands of Punaluu Beach, the island of Hawaii is an unrivaled expression of the power of nature. However you decide to experience the island, it is sure to leave you Inspired!
The sun-drenched Kohala Coast sees an annual average rainfall of only nine inches, so soak in the sun and relax on Mauna Lani’s two sandy beaches, explore the Puako Petroglyphs, indulge at local restaurants or recharge at the spa. You’ll discover cultural treasures on the Kohala Coast, too, such as the remarkable Puukohola Heiau National Historic Site, the largest restored heiau in Hawaii.
