Just in time for summer vacay planning, newly reimagined Mauna Lani, Auberge Resorts Collection is now open on the island of Hawaii. Located oceanfront along the Kohala coast, the stunning property is the brand’s first property in the Hawaiian Islands.
Surrounded by fishponds, verdant gardens and colorful coves are 333 guest rooms and suites along with five 4,000-sq.-ft. two-bedroom private bungalows, each with their own private swimming pool and spa. Three pools, five restaurants and lounges, a signature spa and two top-ranked golf courses treat guests to the island life.
Highlights of the newly opened resort include signature beachfront restaurant CanoeHouse, featuring organic and sustainably harvested ingredients. The culinary team has teamed up with local farmers, fishermen, ranchers and food artisans and created a menu in celebration of the island’s unique bounty.
To really dive into the island’s identity, Hale ‘I’ike (the House of Knowledge) is a cultural center filled with musical instruments, museum-quality artifacts and historic books. Local native Danny Akaka is on hand for guests to learn about the surrounding land and history. Danny and his team also lead education tours and host night events during each full moon.
Those looking to conquer the waves can head to Kainalu Sports, a recreation program guided by world-class athletes where guests can enjoy a diverse menu of activities, from stand-up paddle boarding to canoeing and more.
The Auberge Spa at Mauna Lani features all-natural treatments inspired by the Hawaiian concept of lokahi (harmony and balance) using the traditions of lomi lomi massage. Signature treatments include the Pa’akai Hawaiian Salt Stone Massage and the La’au Facial.
Additional fun includes the Holoholo Kids Crew, a fitness center and two world-class 18-hole golf courses, both receiving high praise and recognition from Golfweek.
