As the first resort built along Hawaii’s Kohala Coast back in 1965, Mauna Kea Beach Hotel has welcomed generations of guests. At that time, Laurance S. Rockerfeller knew it was a great beach and envisioned an exclusive and expensive resort along the shore that offered golf and exceptional dining.

Today, after a $150 million repair and renovation, it once again stands as a landmark of luxury on the Big Island’s golden coast as it gets ready to celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2015 with the theme, “What was, is.”

$50,000 Anniversary Package

The “What was, is” celebration kicked off in 2014 with the 41st Annual Mauna Kea Pro-Am and will continue throughout 2015. Promotions include a $50,000 Golden Anniversary package featuring themed displays, special dining experiences, and more with a grand celebration scheduled for July 24, 2015 that will mark 50 years to the day of the hotel’s opening.

The $50,000 includes airfare from the mainland and transfer to the hotel by private helicopter. It also includes a variety of exclusive activities like stargazing under the dome at the W.M. Keck Observatory. This special package will be available from Jan. 4 to Dec. 19, 2015.

Savings for the Average Wallet

If the $50,000 price tag is a little too steep for your wallet, the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel is also offering specials throughout the year starting with the Winter Escape vacation package that features a fourth night for free from January 4 – March 31, 2015. Savings will depend on choice of accommodation as resort credit ranges from $300 to $1000 a night with a starting rate of $579 per night for rooms with a golf vista.

Different specials will run each quarter of 2015. From early January through March, those staying for three days or longer will be able to enjoy unlimited golf and tennis for $150 a day. A complimentary buffet breakfast for two is also included.

The Mauna Kea Beach Hotel is approximately 27 miles north of Kona International Airport. For more details on the celebration of the golden anniversary and the resort’s rich history, be sure to visit their website.
