At Mauna Lani, golf is more than a game. It's a passion. Here, golf is a sublime blend of scenic beauty, natural history and shot-by-shot challenge.
There are hundreds of places where you could choose to spend a luxurious vacation. Mauna Lani Bay Hotel & Bungalows is one of them. But it isn't merely a luxurious place to wile away the time. It is an attitude, a world apart where you can reconnect with yourself while savoring each and every moment away from the insanity of everyday life. And what might each day hold for you? Golf on lush green fairways lying across ancient lava flows, a subtle immersion in Hawaii history and culture or maybe just a good read on the beach?
Nestled on a white sand beach on the sunny Kohala Coast of the Big Island of Hawaii, Mauna Lani Bay Hotel & Bungalows is like nowhere else. It's an exquisite blend of sophisticated luxury and Hawaiian-style hospitality. Within the boundaries of our 3,200 acre Resort, guests may absorb the unique ambiance of ancient Hawaii in the mystical fishponds and ancient petroglyphs, the beautiful sunsets, lush gardens and a stretch of shoreline that is home to all sorts of colorful marine life.
Whether it's playing golf, playing tennis, biking, jogging, relaxing in the spa or snorkeling in the blue Pacific, there is no day that isn't perfect at Mauna Lani. Upon check-in, guests receive a schedule of complimentary activities they are invited to join in. The varied schedule includes lei-making, watercolor painting, tropical flower arranging, hula lessons, lomi-lomi massage demonstrations, Hawaiian games, fish feeding tours and historic tours. The Mauna Lani Resort Historian shares Hawaiian history and legends with guests at the Eva Parker Woods Cottage, which is home to interesting artifacts of Hawaii.
Guest accommodations reflect a timeless, tropical elegance. Every room is a refreshing oasis featuring a private lanai - over 90% overlook the blue Pacific or the ancient fishponds. The hotel features 350 guestrooms including 10 suites and five exclusive private bungalows.
From romantic oceanfront dining to breakfast overlooking the historic fishponds, Mauna Lani has gathered a blend of tastes from the Asian world and Island traditions. The award-winning CanoeHouse is the signature restaurant of Mauna Lani Bay. Its stunning oceanfront setting showcases glorious Kohala Coast sunsets along with the East-West marriage of Pacific Rim cuisine. The garden-like Bay Terrace restaurant serves breakfast daily and offers diners views from the lagoons to the sparkling Pacific Ocean beyond. The Ocean Grill offers a casual, poolside lunch menu, sunset cocktails and a relaxed, kid-friendly atmosphere, with spectacular ocean views. Located at the Francis H. I'i Brown Golf Course Clubhouse, the open-air Gallery Restaurant overlooks the resort's spectacular golf courses and ocean beyond. The menu features superb American Regional Cuisine with distinctive Mediterranean twists. An oceanfront stroll past ancient Hawaiian fishponds brings you to the Beach Club, an open-air restaurant on a beautiful crescent-shaped beach.
Mauna Lani's two 18-hole golf courses, the Francis H. I'i Brown North and South, offer something unique in the world of golf - a spectacular scenic journey over lush, green fairways tumbling across forbidding black lava. If you are able to keep your mind on the game - there are shots over churning coves, around thirsty lakes and through an unending maze of bunkers - you'll find the kind of challenge that allows players of every skill level to enjoy the day.
Ke`ano Kolepa - The Spirit of Golf at Mauna Lani
Join us for an unforgettable day of golf, inner golf instruction, our Spirit of Golf signature massage, tai chi for golfers, guided meditation, and award-winning cuisine - all purposefully created to help you improve your golf game and have more fun, on and off the golf course. Utilizing concepts such as balance, feel and visualization, our program helps golfers employ practical inner golf techniques and exercises that lead to a "freeing" of the golf swing. Golfers learn to quiet the mind and trust their own natural swing, leading to better shots, lower scores and more fulfilling experiences, on and off the golf course.
This program is offered exclusively at the Mauna Lani Golf Course and Spa by Ke`ano Kolepa - The Spirit of Golf, Inc. Golfers of all abilities, from beginners to low handicappers are invited to participate. Class sizes are small, with a maximum 4:1 ratio of participants to coaches.
