The famed Big Island of Hawaii resort re-opened following an extensive multi-million dollar restoration to the delight of new guests and loyal, long-standing returning patrons who have enjoyed the resort’s signature hospitality since it’s grand opening.

“The ‘Grand Dame’ of the Big Island of Hawaii will continue to perpetuate the true Hawaiian traditions of aloha, coupled with the classic elegance of the Hawaiian Islands that it has been known for,” says the resort’s new General Manager, Jon Gersonde. “The goal of the restoration has been to update and refine The Mauna Kea’s reputation as a sophisticated and intimate luxury beachfront resort. We have reopened with new luxurious accommodations and amenities of the highest caliber, a revitalized golf course with new clubhouse, and, of course, our signature tradition of excellent service.”

New amenities at The Mauna Kea Beach Hotel include a spa offering an array of exotic treatments; exciting new culinary experiences stewarded by Executive Chef George Gomes; and newly refurbished guest rooms. The total room and suite count has been reduced from 310 to 258 as a result of rooms being enlarged in the main building.
