2022 Travellers' Choice Best of the Best
Nestled along the dramatic Kohala Coast and in the piko, or center, of five great mountains, Mauna Lani-- meaning "mountain reaching heaven"-- is a sacred oasis where generations of families and friends have made memories together on soulful lands once cherished by the greatest of Hawaiian royalty. Greet the morning sun as it rises above the mountains’ peaks from the seat of an outrigger canoe. Talk story with friends old and new at the Great Lawn as the sounds of ocean waves and laughter mingle. Dine amongst the company of loved ones at CanoeHouse, where locals have savored the island’s bounty for decades. As you walk this storied coastline, breathe the rejuvenating salt air and swim in the crystalline waters, you feel the same mana, or spiritual energy, that first captivated legends like King Kamehameha I and Francis H. I’i Brown.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This resort is one of the most beautiful, clean, and comfortable places that I have ever stayed in. The smells, the atmosphere, the cuisine, the room, the amenities, the pools, the beach, the music, THE SERVICE. All of it was superb. From beginning to end, the staff went above and beyond to help Michael and I celebrate our recent engagement. Our extended family stayed here for a week last year to celebrate a 60th birthday and they highly recommended it. We are thankful to have been able to come ourselves and hope to return in the future. Thank you so much for your kindness, impeccable hospitality, and thoughtful touches. We received so much love at our short, but sweet stay. Canoe House is 10/10 and if you get to be seated with Melody, you will love her kind and thoughtful presence and her attention to detail.

Hotel's Favourite
Absolutely love Mauna Lani. It's wonderful for adults and kids alike. It's beautiful, impeccably clean and well designed, amazing service and great food all around. It's the kind of resort that feels right to us. We don't generally like the feeling of resorts that are too removed from from the place or environment they're in, like they're closed off. The Mauna Lani really feels like Hawaii, it incorporates the natural beauty of its location on the grounds. I can't recommend the Mauna Lani enough. It's a world class resort. I wish I didn't live so far away from it.

It was a great hotel until they changed their business model to corporate, corporate, corporate. The whole time we were there for the entire week, we were met with corporate guests coming and going. They were loud and rowdy, creating the atmosphere as if you're vacationing in Vegas. Drinking at the pool and setting up boombox, "blasting" country music at the beach. Those corporate guests really acted as if they were the only people on the beach, some of them even "saving" beach chairs for their friends before they arrive. It was very disappointing for a nice leisurely resort to turn into a corporate hotel. I've been here two times this year and both times were full of corporate events and guests tramping the hotel ground. You think great they are leaving today and a bus load of them will come tomorrow... very disheartening. Plus this hotel ain't cheap either. If I wanted a Vegas atmosphere I only needed to pay a fraction of what this hotel costs in Vegas!

We had the most fun we've ever had in Hawaii here! I loved the service and resort, with a true Kona, Hawaii feel. The ocean/beach area was so beautiful and easy to get in and out of the water. I loved all of the dining options on property, and how close the Kings Shops were with a quick drive down the road. The valet service was the fastest we've ever experienced at any 5 star resort. We were truly impressed with the housekeeping service, and grounds of the resort. I would recommend a stay for anyone wanting to relax and or adventure during a stay in Kona.

The best resort we've ever stayed at. My wife and I have never had better service. It was our 18th anniversary and every staff member we interacted with knew it. The hotel provided champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. Our room was made up while we were out (almost like magic).

We love the Mauna Lani. It is where we go for a special occasions and business (if possible). Every time we come here we receive the best service and hospitality. The care they show for their guests is incomparable.

Return visit for us (previous 2000). Hotel is still awesome. Location is somewhat isolated - so unless you have a car dining options will be limited. Even with car you will need to drive a moderate distance for many dining options. Grocery store relatively close. (by car). Separate adult and family (general) pools. Good size beach area with plenty of chairs. Large exercise room. Our one disappointment is the snorkeling off the resort beach was not as good as it was 20 years ago - previously we saw turtles every time and lots of fish life - this year no turtles and very limited fish. Rooms overlooking pool will hear music during day and early evening. Quieter rooms are garden view. Super responsive elevators - never had to wait much. Pools and beaches relatively uncrowded. However restaurants frequently do not have reservations available I would recommend making them in advance. Restaurant and bar closes at 9 PM. Great breakfasts. Free guest self service laundry room including free detergent. On-site dive operation - fairly small with limited capacity for boat dives. Pretty easy to get shore dive arranged, but if you want boat dives probably should reserve ahead of time. Large balcony with table, 2 chairs, sofa and large ottoman. Free in room bottled water. Rooms very quiet no room to room noise. Large balcony with table 2 chairs, sofa, large ottoman and drying rack. Room has body wash, shampoo, conditioner, Q-tips, makeup remover, proximity sensing makeup mirror, hair dryer, slippers, robes, mini fridge, in-room coffee maker and safe.

My family and I went for breakfast at HaLani in mauna Lani resort on our first day in the big island. My brother loved their French toast. The portion was huge and the bread was very thick and delicious. It was by far one of his favourite meals on the island overall. The avocado on toast and the prosciutto & pesto on toast were very delicious and full of flavours. We also had a açai bowl to share between three which was very refreshing to eat on a hot and sunny morning. The staff were very welcoming and the atmosphere was very calm and tranquil. After you’re full I would suggest to take a walk around the resort to digest! It has some lovely scenery

The Mauna Lani is incredible. The food, the rooms, the view, the location and the absolute best in customer service. They truly care and go the extra mile every time. From housekeeping, valet, front desk, restaurant servers, everyone cares so much and it shows. It has everything you need. Snorkeling right off the beach is great. The pools are beautiful and clean. Great for families with children and adults. It never felt crowded. The Canoe house is one of the best restaurants on the island and fit us in when our plans changed. It was perfect. Can't wait to go back.

The Mauna Lani is a beautiful resort with incredible customer service. From check-in to check-out the staff was attentive and extremely helpful. We had a change in our itinerary and had to check-in two days earlier than expected - we called the day of and they made it work for us including organizing an airport pickup. The food is incredible as well - a great mix allowing you to dine at the resort all week. I will absolutely be returning to this beautiful resort!
