The Legendary Mauna Kea Beach Hotel & Luxury Properties

History of Mauna Kea Beach Hotel

Laurance S. Rockefeller fell in love with the natural beauty of Kauna’oa Bay in the early 1960’s. He envisioned a timeless beach resort that preserved the natural beauty of the island’s topography, and was simplistic in its glory.

This vision coupled with the architectural genius of Architects Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and golf course designer Robert Trent Jones, Sr., began the creation of the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel. The resort celebrates its 50th year in 2015, and after an extensive 150 million dollar renovation and repair, it remains one of the greatest oceanfront hotels in the world.

Nestled amongst the golf course and along breathtaking ocean side bluffs with stunning views of the Pacific Ocean, are hidden away some of the most desirable luxury properties on Hawaii’s Big Island.
