Mauna Kea Beach Hotel’s origins date back to 1960 when legendary venture capitalist Laurance S. Rockefeller spotted the crystal clear waters and white sands of Kauna’oa Bay and was inspired to create a great hotel that reflected the spirit of this special place. With thoughtful sensitivity to the dramatic natural surroundings, Rockefeller’s team created a stunning Midcentury modern design that, in the 1960s, was far ahead of its time. As a crowning touch, he installed a 1,600-piece collection of museum-quality Asian and Oceanic art and artifacts throughout the hotel. Guest amenities at the 252-room resort include an award-winning 18-hole golf course, 11-court Seaside Tennis Club, a Beach Club, island dining, homes, and villas.
