Nice shopping mall, don't miss the hula show!

We frequently visit the Kohala coast and always stop by this mall. The splash fountains are a big hit with my kids. There are nice places to eat: the Blue Room just opened up and... read more

We frequently visit the Kohala coast and always stop by this mall. The splash fountains are a big hit with my kids. There are nice places to eat: the Blue Room just opened up and is quite good. The salon is a nice place for a pedicure. But the highlight of this mall is the hula show on Monday and... More

Aunty Tutu is such a pleasant and obviously skilled musician - the combination = a great teacher. Talk Story included, I learned that I really do want to continue to learn the ukulele. Any age could benefit.

While it looks beautiful it is desolate and empty! While there is great dining (Ruth's Chris, Tommy Bahamas & a sushi place), there really is no shopping other than two little surf shops and an overpriced souvenir shop or two. Oddly there are several art stores, but I would only go to the decent coffee shop, or the food market... More

I love shopping, especially while vacationing, but this shopping area has nothing to offer. A few shops here and there but most shops were empty.

My wife and I really enjoyed the lessons given by Aunty Tutu. We caught the ukulele bug because of her. Frankly we followed her from the Sheridan to the Shops at Mauna Lani and ended up enjoying the unique shops.

Compared to the other shopping centers nearby (Kings Shops and Queens Marketplace), this one simply does not have the same caliber or amount of stores. We have been to this mall a few times on previous trips and it seems like each time we come, there's less and less stores. Generally, the only time we stop here is when we... More

At the shops at Mauna Lani on Thursday nights, they offer a free Polynesian dancer show. It only lasted about 30 minutes but it was one of the highlights of our Hawaii trip. We did not attend a Luau, and this was the very next best thing. Awesome, talented young men and women in traditional dress performing. So memorable.

We read about the show here and checked it out. The shops here sponsor a free show every Thursday and Monday. The show is free and lasts about 30-45 mins. The dancers are great . if you are there early enough you get good places to sit. Closer to the show time - around 7 , a lot more people... More

We loved the sushi restaurant upstairs, and the grocery store was decent for a resort store if a little understaffed by somewhat disorganized cashiers, but the smoothie shop had ... issues. We were told we'd have to wait 10 minutes just to place our order, as her "boss" had gone shopping for supplies and she had a big order to... More

Very nice for a mall. All stores outside which in Hawai'i is not a problem. Did attend the 4-D ride it was cheap and a good deal of fun.
