INTERNATIONAL REPORT—The following hotels and resorts have recently become part of something bigger than themselves, embracing a defined goal and standard. Here’s a look at the newest additions to the portfolios of Auberge Resorts Collection, Small Luxury Hotels of the World, and By Magnuson Worldwide Collection.
Mauna Lani Bay Joins Auberge Resorts Collection
Auberge Resorts Collection added Mauna Lani Bay Hotel & Bungalows, a resort on the Big Island of Hawaii, to its portfolio of luxury resorts, residences and clubs. The property will undergo an extensive redesign and revitalization and will be reborn as Mauna Lani, Auberge Resorts Collection.
The development and ownership team is DiamondHead Land, a joint venture between San Francisco-based ProspectHill Group and Hawaii-based hotel executive Pat Fitzgerald, in partnership with a major institutional investor. With plans already underway, the relaunch and reopening of Mauna Lani is planned for late 2019.
Set on 32 oceanfront acres marked by sacred royal fishing ponds, natural lava plains, tropical gardens and bordered by beaches, Mauna Lani offers an immersion into the authentic culture and traditions of Hawaii.
