Tranquil Hawaii Resort
Posted Apr 22, 2017
Mauna Lani is a modern resort set on very special historic, landscaped grounds, on the beach. Our large room was very pretty, impeccably clean, and comfortable with a seating area, bar and frig to hold snacks and drinks. The room had a fantastic view with large balcony, overlooking gardens and ponds, the beach and beyond, the turquoise ocean. Miles of walks along the shore and through natural, landscaped ancient ponds. The beach is a horseshoe shape with breakers on each side and calm. crystal clear water. The hotel is a nice size. Not over run with crowds of people.
Free covered seating by the beach, free bikes to use, snorkel gear. Golf course/club on site, daily fitness classes, activities, kayaks, paddle boards for rent. Plenty of tours and optional activities available if you choose to do them. Nice bar by the pool and ocean side dining. Shops and restaurants nearby. We bought our snacks and drinks at a nearby grocery and sat out to watch the sunset and ceremonial torch lighting and listen to live Hawaiian music in the evening. A sumptuous breakfast buffet of every food imaginable was included in our package every day, outdoor dining overlooking the garden. Nice pool, great separate fitness center with additional lap pool, spa. Yoga on the beach. Fantastic staff. Pretty quiet, serene, not a lot of action at night which was fine with us. Just a really lovely place to unwind in total comfort and Hawaiian beauty
