Mauna Kea Beach Hotel
(South Kohala Coast, Big Island of Hawaii)
Two and a half years after a Big Island earthquake, the 44-year-old Mauna Kea Beach Hotel reopened this year with only a few modern changes. Oceanfront rooms at the South Kohala Coast resort are now larger, with modern appointments and stunning open shower bathrooms. But the original architectural design of the property—a triumph that blends spare modern construction with tropical surroundings—remains intact.
