The Club At Mauna Kea Resort: Building Community With Aloha & Engaging Special Events

Hawaii Island’s iconic Mauna Kea Resort has been spreading aloha and sharing its quintessential tropical location and white sand beaches – renowned as some of the most beautiful on the planet – with guests and the community-at-large for more than 50 years.

Homeowners at this amazing property have the opportunity to join the Club at Mauna Kea with all of its luxury amenities at the two world-class hotels – Mauna Kea Beach Hotel and The Westin Hapuna Beach Resort. The Club also offers an annual calendar of diverse member special events, many of which are open to property owners who do not opt to join The Club. They include monthly recreational events – golf, tennis, bocce ball, and more – as well as seasonal, monthly Platinum Member sunset receptions with signature cocktails and featuring pupus from the chefs at the resort’s six restaurants.

In all, there are four levels of memberships available with a limited number offered annually to Kama‘aina (Hawaii Island residents) – a wonderful opportunity for homeowners to meet new people and become part of the Hawaii Island community. The Platinum, Gold, and Silver levels include special golf rates, privileges at both beaches and fitness centers plus three pools, and the private Seaside Tennis Club. These members also enjoy preferred parking, dining discounts, and resort charging account. The fourth option is The Hapuna Club level, providing access to amenities at The Westin Hapuna Beach Resort including two pools – one reserved exclusively for adults – a Wellness Center featuring the Westin Workout, preferred parking, resort-wide dining discounts and member charging account.
