Manmade Beach, Kid Friendly
Mauna Lani, which translates to "heavenly mountain," is a truly enchanting destination situated just 30 minutes from Kona Airport on the breathtaking Kona-Kohala coast. In 2018, Auberge Resorts assumed stewardship of this magnificent property and dedicated $200 million to comprehensive renovations, culminating in its grand reopening in 2020, just prior to the pandemic. Nestled on 32 acres, Mauna Lani is surrounded by ancient lava fields and home to the revered Kalāhuipuʻa fishponds, a place where Hawaiian Aliʻi (royalty) would gather for fishing expeditions. The land resonates with ancient spirituality, harmonizing with the essence of Hawaii.
Positioned almost level with the ocean, the resort's thoughtful design minimizes the need for excessive elevators and stairs, ensuring accessibility and comfort. Stepping into the resort's dramatic entrance and multi-story lobby, you'll feel an immediate sense of tranquility as you receive a traditional welcome lei and a refreshing cocktail. The property boasts three stunning pools, two exquisite restaurants, high-end shopping options, a brand-new 5,000 square-foot indoor-outdoor gym, and the expansive Auberge Spa. On the pristine beach, you'll discover luxury Hālau daybeds, complemented by stylish furnishings and impeccable food service. Golf enthusiasts will delight in the presence of two world-class, 18-hole golf courses, adding to the allure of Mauna Lani.
Mauna Lani's coastal location is graced with a selection of small, manmade (or enhanced) beaches, including the vibrant Pauoa Bay, teeming with marine life. To the south, Mauna Lani's beach enjoys remarkable protection, accessible from the public parking lot via a leisurely 15-minute stroll through the captivating fishpond area. The resort's commitment to preserving Hawaii's natural beauty and heritage invites guests to embrace the profound sense of place at Mauna Lani.
