Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, Big Island Hawaii

 Paradise Found in Hawaii's Big Island at Mauna Kea Beach Hotel

Mauna Kea Beach Hotel’s rich past fills the resort with elegance and a refined sense of tradition and place. This property offers a beautiful, exciting Hawaii experience for a wedding. The Aloha is everlasting and is bound to make this special moment one that you will never forget! 

A beloved resort since it opened in 1965, Mauna Kea Beach Hotel was founded by Laurance S. Rockefeller, who spotted the perfect white sand crescent of Kauna‘oa Bay and visualized an elegant, luxury resort that reflected the spirit of its incredible location. The resulting Mauna Kea Beach Hotel –HAWAII ISLAND’S FIRST RESORT – has, ever since, provided guests with a perfect mix of golf, tennis, ocean and cultural activities as well as serene and luxurious relaxation on the Big Island.

Guest rooms and suites, all with either ocean or golf course views, are carefully maintained to honor Rockefeller’s tradition of understated tropical elegance while providing modern comforts and connectivity.

And romance is never far away at Mauna Kea....

From watersports and beach activities, to couples spa treatments and romantic dinners for two, this resort has romance all figured out.  

Mauna Kea on The Big Island is the dream locale for your Hawaiian wedding!
