ALOHA! Immerse yourself in an authentic Big Island vacation experience while staying at our beautiful Tommy Bahama inspired Villa Lava, located in the private gated luxury community of the Fairways at the Mauna Lani Resort on the majestic Kohala Coast. The Mauna Lani Resort is an award winning eco-friendly green resort with two 18 hole championship Troon golf courses (Note: South course was formally the Senior Skins Game!), Mauna Lani Sports & Fitness Club, Mauna Lani Tennis Shop, beaches, shopping, open air dining, and many authentic Hawaiian historical preserves including functioning ancient fish ponds. The shops at Mauna Lani are walking distance and include a Foodland Farms grocery store / specialty market with an excellent selection and local island pricing. The resort is ideally located on the dry and sunny part of the Big Island on the majestic Kohala Coast, just 22 miles north of the Kona Int'l Airport. An authentic Hawaiian experience awaits on this tropical oasis with over 3000 acres built around 7 ancient fish ponds (known as the Kalahuipua'a ponds) that was once used to cultivate fish for the ali`i, or the rulers of the land. With more than 3 miles of ocean front to explore, the Mauni Lani resort offers lots of walkable sunset experiences including two 5-star resort hotels: the Fairmont Orchid with 6 restaurants and the Mauna Lani Hotel, with 5 restaurants, and Holoholokai Beach Park w/ restrooms, showers, picnic tables, and BBQ grills. And when venturing outside the resort, you will appreciate the short drive to the Big Island’s best white sand beaches including:
1) Hapuna - best boogie boarding!
2) Mauna Kea - picture perfect w/ free night-time Manta sighting!
3) Mau’umae Beach - secluded and rustic
4) Makaiwa Bay - aka Mauna Lani Beach Club with key card access

Makaiwa Bay is a protected cove with spectacular coral formations with TONS of fish and excellent snorkeling on par with Captain Cook / Kealakekua Bay and a perfect place for stand-up-paddle-boarding and safe swimming for all ages. We provide key card access to the private Mauna Lani Beach Club located at Makaiwa Bay, which includes restrooms, outdoor showers, drinking water, as well as Beach Club resort amenities including free lounge and shaded cabana lounge chairs (reserve early) and oceanfront dining and cocktails at Napua Restaurant (reservations 1-2 weeks before recommended).

The Fairways well-appointed pool area amenities include:
> Resort style swimming pool, Keiki pool, and hot tub with natural lava rock waterfalls!
> Free Fitness Center (Note: access is temporarily limited to only long term guests during COVID)
> Viking gas BBQ grill w/kitchen, dining and entertaining area under a covered cabana
> Lounge furniture
