Best Tropical Getaway for Californians: Mauna Kea Beach Hotel
Founded by Laurance S. Rockefeller in 1965, the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel sits along the Big Island’s golden Kohala Coast. It recently underwent a $150 million renovation, including a revamp of the 258 guestrooms by John Hara Associates Inc. and Barry Design Associates. The resort also features the newly renovated 18-hole championship Mauna Kea Golf Course, a 2,500-square-foot fitness center and a museum-quality Pacific and Asian art collection, made up of more than 1,600 pieces collected by Mr. Rockefeller and Davis Allen specifically for the Mauna Kea in 1965.
