The Kohala Coast is home to one of the most beautiful natural areas on the Big Island. A glass of sake can be enjoyed at dusk as the sun sets over the Pacific Ocean, turning the vast lawn red. The Mauna Kea Resort, which has a sake brewery, was established as a guest house for Rockefeller, and its golf course was designed by Arnold Palmer. Despite the location of the island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, the golf course clubhouse is the best place to stay. Traditional sake brewing is carried out in this 8,500 square-foot space.


For visitors who want to learn about the supreme taste of sake and its art, we have established a restaurant called Engawa. The Engawa offers Islander Sake as a meal option. In Japanese culture, Engawa is considered the most comfortable space in the house, with the purpose of separating it from the outside world. Visitors are welcome to chat casually with house guests on the Engawa, or to unwind with a cup of tea or a snack. Taking a sip of our sake will help you relax and forget about your daily work. It is similar to landing at Hawaii’s airport, exiting the plane, and unwinding in the tropical air.


Meeting you means a lot to us and we are looking forward to a pleasant time together. We invite you to visit our most valued area, the Engawa. Drinks and food are part of our menu. It is possible to use it for private parties as well.
