What was, is and then some.
Mauna Kea Beach Hotel opened July 24, 1965. Her accommodations were the epitome of luxury for the time. But time passes and the luxurious must keep up.
Believing that less is indeed more, everywhere possible three rooms have been re-mastered to become two. Today nearly one-third of the complement features a full length bath inclusive of spacious ante-room with separate vanity areas fronting the personal spa. Inside, the soaking tub and rain-shower are bathed in natural light. Beyond is a totally private lanai with single chaise lounge reserved for whoever of you takes the plunge, first.
The beachfront wing, just barefoot steps from the sand and surf, has a surprise. The curtains have been raised on an entirely new guest experience including a picture-window view from the tub through the room to the ocean.
Resort historians have noted, “It's impossible to stay indoors at the Mauna Kea.” Today, that can be said of the new baths as well.
