Fodor's Review

This first-rate resort overflows with tropical gardens, cascading waterfalls, sandy beach cove, beautiful wings with "open sesame" doors, a meandering pool, and renovated rooms with all the amenities. All guest rooms have private lanai, and many have partial or full ocean views. Excellent on-site restaurants include the flagship Brown's Beach House, Hale Kai, Brown's Deli, and Norio's Restaurant and Sushi Bar. Guests enjoy the tennis center, the Spa Without Walls with private massage hales set amid waterfalls or on the oceanfront, and the largest and most impressive swimming pool among the resorts. The lavish Gathering of the Kings luau is followed by a show that combines modern and Polynesian dance. There's lots of beach equipment to rent, plus rental bikes if you want to peddle to the nearby Shops at Mauna Lani. The beach features a protected cove ideal for swimming and wading, and the fitness center comes fully equipped.
