    Highly recommend this romantic getaway. My wife and I celebrated our 20 year anniversary and this serene setting provided just the backdrop we were looking for. If you are looking to get re-connected with a lover, look no further. Service was 2nd to none!

    How could you get married anywhere else? The Mauna Kea is an incredibly special resort and designed for events/weddings. It was magical. Piilani is great to work with and everything went off without a hitch! Yes, it's pricey for guests, so we offered room rates at both the MK and the nearby Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel. I would definitely recommend the Mauna Kea!
