Copper Terrace  Join us at the Copper Terrace to celebrate the grand finale of another day in Paradise, with our “Sunset Ceremony”.

We promise to try and tempt you with different themed pupus nightly, prepared a la minute, like a sizzling yakitori grill, icy raw bar delicacies, your favorite sushi and more.

Dress Code: Casual.

Clambake  A longstanding tradition that’s still one of the Big Island’s most remarkable seafood buffet, the Mauna Kea Clambake is romantic al fresco dining just like you remember, beachside under the stars.

Laden tables fragrant with imu-roasted kalua pig, island fish, laulau, lomi salmon, sashimi and piles of pineapple, papaya, and more. Teach your keiki the joy of finger licking poi, dancing hula to the “Hukilau” or being wowed by the fire knife dance. The Mauna Kea Hawaiian Lu’au completes the experience with a taste of culture shared by means of music, food and family tradition.

Hau Tree  A Hawaii vacation doesn’t take a lunch break. It’s part of the fun and many pleasures of the Mauna Kea experience. Enjoy time out of the sunshine at the cool, renewed Hau Tree restaurant right by the beach, with new chairs and tables, colorful umbrellas, refreshed kitchen and great new menu items, side by side with your favorite Hawaiian sandwiches, hamburgers, hot dogs, fries, salads and ice cream treats. And if there’s ever been a better barstool for watching the perfect Pacific sunset, we don’t know where it is. The little round bar right off Kohala Coast’s Kauna’oa Beach is still just about the best spot anywhere for a smooth tropical cocktail and a view of the elusive green flash.

Manta And Pavilion Wine Bar  Dinner at Manta is an occasion every night, with a dynamic new exhibition kitchen to showcase our chefs’ artistry and the next step in the evolution of oenology: the “Enomatic wine experience”. An innovative way to serve 48 distinctive wines, selected from new trends, high-end and the latest stars from various vintners, the Enomatic is just one highlight of The Mauna Kea resort’s new, extensive wine program, designed to surprise and delight again and again. And in the morning, Manta is the place for long, leisurely breakfasting and pleasant conversation over made to order waffles and omelets, fresh tropical fruits and juices, healthy whole grain cereals and various irresistibles from the pastry kitchen with a second, maybe third, cup of the Big Island, Hawaii’s famous Hawaiian coffee. This is the Mauna Kea’s breakfast buffet, with its ocean overlook and birdsong symphony, and this is what your family will remember.

Cuisine: American, Pacific Island.
