A landmark of luxury on Hawaii Island, Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, joins the exclusive portfolio of Autograph Collection hotels as the group’s first Hawaiian property and the 75th in its global portfolio.
Now celebrating its 50th anniversary, the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel was founded by venture capitalist and passionate conservationist Laurance S. Rockefeller as the first resort built on the raw and stunning Kohala Coast, and the hotel still boasts an extensive collection of Asian and Pacific Rim art today.

The addition of Mauna Kea Beach Hotel to Autograph Collection furthers Marriott International’s dedication to growing its lifestyle portfolio and partnering with some of the world’s most unique properties. The vision behind the Autograph Collection is to offer an evolving group of passionately independent hotel experiences ranging from a 15-room boutique hunting lodge in the mountains of Colorado to a 19th century neoclassical palace in the majestic city of Prague. Exactly like nothing else, each hotel is thoughtfully chosen for its quality, originality, bold character and capacity to offer today’s modern traveler a range of unique experiences suited to their individual sense of style and adventure. While still relatively new, the distinct portfolio has proven to be a highly successful venture due to its discerning selection process and unique ability to create memories through enriching travel experiences.
