The Mauna Lani Resort is a definite must if you want to have a place where you can just hang out at your resort and still have tons to do. Located on the west side of the Big Island, this hotel features a stunning open-air atrium that lets the outdoors in, where a hula dancer performs nightly to live music. There are daily free tours of the spacious grounds that used to be the playground of the Hawaiian king. There are even ancient petroglyphs on property. You will be wowed by the crystal clear waters for snorkeling - equipment is available for free. Plus you can get some relaxation in a hammock under a coconut tree. The check-in process consists of sitting at a desk and being served juice and given a welcome lei. The rooms are very modern and feature nightly turn-down service. Meals on-property are quite expensive - breakfast came to $50 for just two adults - but the wide range of activities and stunning location make this a real treat for your Hawaii vacation.
