We will kick off our program on the evening of Friday, May 28, with our Welcome Cocktail Party, followed by dinner and a show.
Then, every day we will split into smaller groups for our daily activities/adventures. The Mauna Kea Beach Resort is so amazing that we want to make sure that we take advantage of everything it has to offer. So, we are designing a program to not only give you plenty of time to enjoy the resort, but to also get you out into the beautiful natural surroundings, introduce you to the local food and culture, and most importantly give you time to spend with your Castles & Concerts friends.
We know there are many wonderful activities in and around the resort, as well as farther afield on the Big Island, so please remember that nothing on our trip is compulsory. Do as much or as little as you like. If there is something you would like to do on the Big Island that is not already on our schedule, we can connect you with the best people to make it happen. Just let us know. We’re here to help!
Of course, every evening we will gather together for dinner and a show with some of your favorite Castles & Concerts entertainers, as well as some of the best local talent on the island.
Originally developed by Laurance Rockefeller in the early days of Hawaii’s statehood, the multi- award winning Mauna Kea Beach Hotel was designed to conform to (and not intrude upon) the beautiful natural surroundings. Rockefeller envisioned the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel as a private estate, offering a cross-cultural resort experience, emphasizing the Pacific Rim and providing a peaceful environment to explore personal growth and spirituality.
To achieve this vision, he entrusted a team of experts to acquire unique and beautiful pieces of art from Asia and the Pacific. He worked with architects and designers to create specifically designed display areas to enhance the works of art. Seemingly every hallway and corner is graced with something special from this priceless collection of hundreds and hundreds museum-quality pieces.
As a child growing up on O’ahu, Chip‘s family would travel to the other islands on long weekends. The first time Chip stayed there he was 5 years old! We know that many of you have fond memories with friends and family at this special place. Let’s go together and make some more....
What’s Included: All meals with the group are included: breakfast, lunch and dinner. As is our custom, we build in specific times that meals are “on your own” in order to give you the opportunity to dine at one of the many wonderful, smaller restaurants that could not accommodate our whole group. All of our group activities and excursions are included. Furthermore, we have prepaid generous gratuities to all of our tour operators, wait staff and hotel/hospitality staff. As always, though, the most important inclusion is the pleasure of being with great folks in beautiful surroundings full of music, fellowship, nature and culture.
Costs/Upgrades: The cost of the trip is $6,750 per person, double occupancy, in a superior room. There are room upgrades available. Please let us know if you are interested in an Ocean View.
Please feel free to email or call us with any questions you may have. Thank you.
