BIG ISLAND OF HAWAII
MAUNA LANI BAY HOTEL AND BUNGALOWS
 
Located on a beach amidst lava deposits and ancient outdoor fish ponds, surrounded by two 18-hole, championship golf courses, a 25-minute drive form the airport, this modern, full-facility resort is ideal for couples and families. In addition to 350 guest rooms and suites, all with private lanais, there are five, two-bedroom ultra-deluxe, 4,000 square-foot beachfront bungalows.
 
Of the several dining venues, the Canoe house is the most well-known and highly acclaimed. The best swimming is at the Beach Club about ½ mile from the hotel and at the free-form fresh water pool located between the hotel and a three-mile stretch of white-sand beach. In addition to the two 18-hole championship golf courses, there are ten tennis courts at the Tennis Garden and six more at the Racquet Club, also the location of the health spa and fitness center.
 

Strong Points: An elegant, modern resort with fine dining, friendly service and a wide range of facilities.
