|The Mauna Kea Resort|
The Mauna Kea Resort, home to the iconic Mauna Kea Beach Hotel and its contemporary neighbor, the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel, two popular beachfront properties in Hawaii, recently announced a multi-million dollar program to refresh guestrooms, restaurants and other facilities.
Work is expected to begin in August and be completed by November this year. Model guestrooms are slated to open at both properties in late spring.
Barry Design of Santa Monica, California, which previously managed the renovation of the main building at Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, will oversee upgrades of the adjacent four-story Plumeria Beach Front Wing, just footsteps from the white sands and turquoise waters of beautiful Kaunaoa Bay.
All 102 guestrooms in the wing built in 1968, will be refreshed in a clean and contemporary, yet traditional style. Upgrades include plush bedding package, floor treatments, and new interior and lanai furniture. Bathroom makeovers will include new bathtub, separate shower, two sinks and a new commode.
Enhancements to Hapuna’s pool area will include the resurfacing of the pool deck and new furniture. In addition, Hapuna’s lobby and three restaurants, Ocean Terrace, Reef Lounge and Coast Grille, will be refreshed and updated with modern furnishings.
