Perfect Honeymoon Paradise
Posted Jan 27, 2017
I am out of words to describe how fabulous and perfect Mauna Kea Beach Hotel is! My husband and I stayed here for a week for our honeymoon in January(perfect weather). The very welcoming lei greeting by the staff, beautiful koi ponds, mesmerizing ocean views from our room & bath, gorgeous landscapes, Oceanside pool, gym & tennis courts, unique and traditional artwork & décor, pristine private beach, mouth-watering food, amazing cocktails, manta ray lookout, beautiful flora, and even parrots - this hotel is the "perfect" Hawaiian experience. Very relaxing, secluded, and peaceful resort - ideal for honeymooners! As far as surprises: we not only got a bottle of champagne waiting for us when we checked into our room and free desserts at the Manta and Copper bar, but also one day late checkout at no cost and an invitation to a wine reception. A huge thank you to the manager, Kansas, who was very friendly, kind, accommodating, and made us feel so special. Each restaurant has breathtaking views and a different vibe and chefs; hence making each experience unique. Amy (concierge) was awesome. She made sure we got tables with the best views at the restaurants! Fun fact - This was the first hotel on this island. I can't emphasize enough how glad we are that we did not choose any over-crowded "big name" hotels and found this hidden gem. Absolutely cannot wait to go back for some Mauna Kea MAGIC again!!! I definitely recommend.
