The Mauna Lani Bay Hotel & Bungalows is working with well-known design consultant for the hospitality, leisure and entertainment industries, WATG/Wimberly Interiors, on a hotel renovation scheduled for 2013.
The vision is to restore Mauna Lani Bay to its original glory in a style of understated Hawaiian elegance.
General Manager of The Mauna Lani Bay Hotel & Bungalows, Robert Grant, said that “the renovation will heighten the authentic, timeless Hawaiian experience that our guests have come to enjoy since we opened our doors almost 30 years ago. Preserving and sharing the history and culture of Hawaii will remain a large part of our resort experience."
The bungalows are currently being extensively renovated and the new look will be completed in December. Award-winning Hawaii interior designer, Gina Willman, created a “Hawaiian home away from home”. Two of the bungalows are set in cool blues, turquoise and aqua drawing inspiration from the crystal blue Pacific. The remaining three bungalows feature the rich, warm tones of burnt orange and yellow inspired by the sunsets that the Kohala Coast is famous for.
The private outdoor Jacuzzi and heated swimming pool create a laidback setting for socializing or quiet enjoyment. Each bungalow bedroom will feature a romantic four post bed. The headboards will showcase a custom carving of the Hawaiian flower that each Bungalow is named after: Orchid, Bird of Paradise, Hibiscus, Plumeria and Heliconia.
The two master bathrooms each include a private tropical garden with a rain shower, stand-alone tub and washlet. Other enhancements to the bungalows include Tiger Wood and Koa floors, wool carpets and a state-of-the-art entertainment system with a 65-inch LED HD television and the latest Apple iMac.
The first phase will include the guestrooms followed by new landscaping and a new pool experience set for completion in late 2013.
