One of the Few Oceanfront Condominium Communities Along the Kohala Coast

Prime in location and adjacent to the historical fishponds, Mauna Lani Terrace is notably the heart of the Mauna Lani Resort. This location is also desirable because it is within walking distance to all the resort amenities, including the Beach Club, Spa and Fitness Center, Golf Club House, The Shops at Mauna Lani, and many wonderful restaurants.

7 Ancient Fishponds are Located on the Grounds

Kalahuipua’a is the largest pond encompassing 4.6 acres and measuring up to 18 feet in depth. In old Hawai’i, most fishponds were managed by the Ali’i (chiefs), and most of the fish were consumed by them.

Continuing the tradition of the fishponds, Mauna Lani Resort focuses considerable energy caring for the ancient ​ponds. They are maintained and stocked, and the schools of mullet and awa are moved from pond to pond to feed in different stages of development.​ They have also planted a variety of ancient Hawaiian plants in an effort to return the ponds to their natural state and preserve a dwindling resource.

Talk Story: A Wonderful Monthly Event

Every month on ​the full moon, Mauna Lani has ​an evening of storytelling and entertainment on the lawn at the oceanfront Eva Parker Woods Cottage, “Talk Story!” The event is coordinated by Mauna Lani’s Cultural Historian Danny Akaka who ​shares ​his knowledge of Hawaii’s myths and legends with locals and guests. He ​speaks fluent Hawaiian and often performs as a musician. This is one of my favorite monthly events along the beautiful Kohala Coast!
