Culture at Mauna Kea Resort
From our Aloha Ambassador to our efforts in reef conservation and reforestation, we pride ourselves on being committed to authentic, real experiences knowing that it’s all a part of what it means to be and experience Mauna Kea Resort.
It was while swimming in the turquoise waters of Kauna‘oa Bay, surrounded by a wide landscape of lava rock and ranchland with clear views of the Mauna Kea summit, that American conservationist and venture capitalist Laurance S. Rockefeller decided to build Hawaii Island’s first resort.

With a focus on showcasing Hawaiian Culture to guests, Mauna Kea Resort proudly hosts an array of activities and experiences to connect and learn about Hawaiʻi.
The legacy of developer and conservationist Laurance S. Rockefeller is the cornerstone to Mauna Kea Resort’s decades-long efforts to honor, celebrate, and mālama (care for) our island home.
