In his first-ever dedicated Hawai‘i hotel series, fine art photographer Gray Malin (graymalin.com) collaborated with Mauna Kea Beach Hotel (maunakeabeachhotel.com) to produce a stunning 32-image collection. “With Gray’s expertise in curating vintage vignettes that honor the history of some of the world’s most beloved hotels and destinations, we knew from the outset that he was the perfect photographer to capture the timeless beauty of Mauna Kea Beach Hotel,” says Craig Anderson, vice president of resort operations.
The collection flaunts Malin’s affinity for dreamscapes, showcasing sky-stretching palms, vintage cars and surfboards, and the sun-soaked landscape of Mauna Kea Beach Hotel. Malin’s exclusive access to the resort due to restrictions at the time allowed him to work closely with the hotel team to stage his own imagined Gray Malin Beach Club, a standout among the collection.
And now, the beach club experience becomes a reality. Through Dec. 17, the Gray Malin Beach Club package boasts a stay at Mauna Kea Beach Hotel for five nights or more, exclusive access to the beach club—including coveted beachfront seating—a framed mini print from the photography series and two specially branded tote bags. Insider's tip: Request one of two guest rooms Malin used to capture the Beach Club setting, which are now outfitted with photographs from the collection.
