Auberge Resorts Collection is welcoming Mauna Lani Bay Hotel & Bungalows, the famed resort on the Big Island of Hawaii, to its portfolio of award-winning luxury resorts, residences and clubs.

Under the direction of a world-class development team, Mauna Lani will undergo an extensive $100 million plus redesign and revitalisation  –  before it is reborn as Mauna Lani, Auberge Resorts Collection.

Planned for late 2019, the resort will offer a hallmark destination.  Set on 32 oceanfront acres marked by sacred royal fishing ponds, natural lava plains, lush tropical gardens and bordered by pristine white-sand beaches, Mauna Lani offers the island’s premier location for relaxation, adventure and immersion in the authentic culture and traditions of Hawaii.

A great respect for the ancient concept of aloha āina – love of the land – and a deep connection to land, sea and Hawaiian heritage will inform every aspect of the resort’s physical and experiential
transformation.

Award-winning interior design firm Meyer Davis is orchestrating a dramatic redesign of the public areas and guest rooms. They’ll be re-imagining Mauna Lani’s iconic architecture and overseeing the extensive renovation and refurbishment of the resort’s storied gardens and grounds – making sure that archaic importance is preserved.

As part of the hotel redesign, the total number of hotel rooms will be reduced, and dramatic oceanfront and ocean-view suites offering panoramic coastal views will be added. The ultra-luxury Mauna Lani Bungalows, with their private pools, butler service and private resort-within-a-resort setting, will be enhanced to provide the ultimate insider getaway.

Mauna Lani will close in October 2018 and reopen in late 2019 as part of Auberge Resorts Collection. To learn more, please maunalani.aubergeresorts.com.
