Lonely Planet review

Among the top South Kohala resorts, the Mauna Lani offers a wonderfully Hawaiian atmosphere. The parklike grounds feature landscaped tropical gardens, hundreds of towering coconut palms and precious historic sites, and the staff is exceptionally courteous and committed to Hawaiian culture. Renovated in the mid-1990s, the 342 rooms are modern in amenities and decor; 90% are oceanfront or ocean-view. Rates include basic services (eg parking, phone, high-speed internet access), so there are no extra charges. This eco-conscious resort uses solar power for its daytime water-pumping needs, drought-resistant grass for the golf greens and recycled water for irrigation. It even raises endangered honu (sea turtles) on-site.
