A state-of-the-art amenity club, the Amaui Club at Mauna Kea will serve as the main social gathering area for this private residential community within the Mauna Kea Resort. Designed to be appropriate to its tropical setting and contemporary in character, the club exudes pastoral openness overlooking Hapuna Beach Golf Course and Kaunaoa Bay beyond.

The entire clubhouse acts as a piece of the natural landscape that has been cut away and lifted 7m above the ground. This “living roof” is covered with indigenous flora planted in specially conceived biodegradable coconut-fiber containers. The heroic scale of the Amaui Club’s lobby complements the power and presence of the site.

The library, lounge, conference room and game room create a club environment: warm, friendly, and designed for inside activities as well as a more relaxed indoor- outdoor environment for the fitness center, poolside bar, lap pool, tennis court and event lawn with unobstructed views.
