“EVERY GREAT BEACH DESERVES A GREAT HOTEL.” SO SAID LAURANCE S. ROCKEFELLER, DEVELOPER OF MIDCENTURY MODERN MASTERPIECE THE MAUNA KEA BEACH HOTEL IN 1965, SITUATED ON HAWAII'S KOHALA COAST.

More than five decades after opening, the Mauna Kea boasts amenities that are anything but low key: the legendary golf course is USGA standard, the Copper Bar restaurant features sweeping views of Kauna’oa Bay, and the oceanfront luau is magically timeless. Honoring the hotel’s location between East and West, more than 1,000 art and artifacts collected from around the Pacific Rim (such as a pink granite seated Buddha from the 12th century) decorate the hotel and grounds.
