Mauna Kea Beach Hotel

62-100 Mauna Kea Beach Dr., Kawaihae, Hawaii, 96743, USA

The grande dame of the Kohala Coast has long been regarded as one of the state's premier vacation resort hotels, and it borders one of the island's finest white-sand beaches, Kaunaoa. Bathrooms are large and luxurious and come with L'Occitane bath amenities, and beds are plush, but outside the rooms has much to offer, too, including an 18-hole championship golf course, a top-rated oceanfront tennis club, and a fitness center. If all you want to do is relax, there's the Mandara spa, an outdoor swimming pool, and lots of comfy lounge chairs on the beach, which, incidentally, is a perfect crescent of sand and sea, or rent a stand-up paddleboard or canoe on-site. The hotel has two wings: the Main Tower and the Beachfront Wing. The latter's ground-floor units allow you to wake up and go right out to the beach.
