Mauna Kea Beach Hotel recently unveiled Hawaii Island’s newest venue for meetings and social functions, Kaunaoa Ballroom.
Offering three sides of floor-to-ceiling windows framing views of Kaunaoa Bay, the ballroom features nearly 3,500 square feet of indoor function space as well as expansive outdoor pre-function space.
Flexible for events of various sizes and scope, built-in pre-function and breakout room space includes the lanai surrounding the ballroom as well as a nearby open-air area with a striking mural commissioned by local artist Solomon Enos.
A connecting breezeway between the new ballroom and the 100-room Beachfront Wing offers the unique opportunity for a “hotel within a hotel” experience tailored for incentive and corporate group travel.
Together with sister property Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel, the two hotels encompass nearly 150,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting space with a full time banquet and conference services staff.
As a special introductory offer, new groups of 25 or more with a three night minimum stay will receive guaranteed oceanview rooms at both Mauna Kea Beach Hotel and Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel, complimentary WiFi, VIP round of golf for four and 10 percent off banquet menus. Groups may also qualify to receive a one bedroom suite upgrade per every 50 room nights booked.
Kaunaoa Ballroom is part of a larger $4.5 million transformation of the promenade level inclusive of the new Copper Bar.
