Mauna Lani

Historic Mauna Lani is a natural landscape fit for royalty.

Welcome to Mauna Lani

Mauna Lani is a luxury resort community located on the Kona-Kohala Coast of Hawaii at the shore of Makaiwa Bay, between Paua Bay and Iliili Naehe Bay. This secluded section of the Big Island is devoted to premium real estate with high-end accommodations without disrupting the natural landscape. Mauna Lani has a selection of upscale condominiums as well as luxurious private estates to choose from. 

Mauna Lani is distinctly connected to Hawaii’s history—its name translates to “mountain reaching heaven” and was a place of worship for Hawaii’s kings and elders. Explore historic Hawaiian fish ponds and walk the island footpaths to reconnect with Hawaii’s ancient spirit. The recently opened Auberge Resort is a 32-acre luxury property that is both idyllic oasis and sleek, contemporary living. They offer Soulful Journeys which promote authentic Hawaiian experiences such as floating yoga atop a paddleboard, ukulele lessons, and outrigger canoe excursions. Every monthly full moon, Eva Parker Cottage at the Auberge Resort hosts Twilight at Kalāhuipua‘a. This outdoor lawn concert series brings people together every month on the Saturday closest to the full moon to partake in storytelling and a selection of ukulele and guitar songs. Additionally, since 1989, Mauna Lani has hosted the Turtle Independence Day celebration, where juvenile Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles are brought to the Turtle Sanctuary in Mauna Lani to be raised until they are strong enough to be released to the wild. 

Mauna Lani takes resort recreation to new levels with Kainalu Sports. From biking to paddle sports, the Kainalu Sports program emphasizes the direct relationship between the mountain and the sea, or as it’s said in Hawaiian, “Mauka to Makai.” Snorkel with manta rays, swim with dolphins, or train your body for peak performance with underwater rock running. Mauna Lani also hosts two top-ranked 18-hole golf courses, the North Course and the South Course, as well as a 9-hole Wikiwiki Course for short play. A sunset golf tour is a perfect end to any day.

The Shops at Mauna Lani is the best place in town to enjoy an elegant meal while browsing fine retailers. Whether diners choose a cowboy ribeye at Ruth’s Chris Steak House or coconut crusted crab cakes from Tommy Bahama Restaurant & Bar, the Shops at Mauna Lani have plenty of eateries to choose from. Other dining options include The Canoe House at the Auberge Resorts, where they are serving up delectable island specialty dishes with stunning 180-degree views of the Pacific, and Browns Beach House at the Fairmont Orchid, which is the perfect place for picturesque alfresco dining.
