We live in Vancouver, British Columbia (Canada). We are avid travelers and discovered the Hawaiian islands during a cruise a few years ago. After we tendered in Kona, we toured a coffee farm, visited 'The Place of Refuge' and had an amazing snorkeling experience at Kahalu'u ... all in one day! The people we met on our tour were genuine and friendly, and we soon fell in love with the 'Big Island and its authentic 'Aloha' culture. It was a dream come true for us when we purchased our vacation home at the Mauna Lani Resort in 2008. With each visit we feel more part of the 'aloha' spirit and community.
Nina and Richard
We chose the Mauna Lani Resort because of the fabulous beaches and the abundance of sunshine on Hawai'i's South Kohala Coast (an attractive feature for those who live in a coastal rain forest!). When we initially toured the Mana Lani resort community, we loved the the fact that there was a gourmet supermarket right down the road, a private beach club, a spa and a fabulous fitness centre all within the resort community. Although we are not avid golfers, we also liked the fact that there are two championship golf courses within the resort. We choose the Kulalani complex because it was brand new and immediately felt like home. The villas were spacious and well laid out. As well, the amenities (2 pools and fitness center) were among the best complex amenities in the resort community.
