Lonely Planet review
The Mauna Lani has a loyal clientele for its unfussy vibe and commitment to Hawaiian cultural stewardship. The grounds feature well-tended tropical gardens, hundreds of towering coconut palms and precious historic sites. Geared more for couples than kids, this is a solid upscale, if shy of luxurious, hotel.
Rates include basic services (eg parking, phone, internet access). Eco policies include use of solar power, drought-resistant grass and recycled water for irrigation. The Mauna Lani Spa boasts lush landscaping and a lava-rock sauna; treatments are pricey, perhaps overpriced, but a memorable splurge.
Our independent authors have visited Mauna Lani Bay Hotel & Bungalows and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Mauna Lani Resort Area.
