Mauna Kea Beach Hotel Renovation
As the pioneering hotel built on the Kohala Coast, the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel first opened in 1965 catering sweeping views of the clear blue oceanside. In 2006, restoration commenced after a devastating earthquake afflicted the Hawaiian Islands. The renovation included a complete overhaul and upgrade to the public areas, guest suites, clubhouse and landscapes without compromising the original architecture of the hotel.
Guest suites have been expanded creating a more refined and luxurious space reducing the number of room keys from the original 310 to 258. Each suite is softly lighted with recessed fixtures to provide a luminous glow without hindering the evening view of the ocean. Decorative table lamps accent each bedside.
The public corridors and atrium are open to the Hawaiian sky and ocean breezes. Warm sources complement these open corridors while path lights guide guests through the atrium’s exotic greenery. The Mauna Kea, with renovation costs estimated at $150 million, reopened in December 2008.
