This Popular Hotel in Hawaii Teamed Up With Photographer Gray Malin for a New Beach Club Experience

Malin's photographs come to life at Mauna Kea Beach Hotel.

A new beach club experience in Hawaii also comes with a little fine art.

Mauna Kea Beach Hotel on the Island of Hawaii collaborated with fine art photographer Gray Malin to create an exciting new immersive beach club experience. This collaboration comes in addition to the new Gray Malin at the Mauna Kea photo series that the photographer released in January 2021.

Malin is a Los Angeles-based photographer who focuses on remote locations, aerial photographs, and other types of travel photography. So, it's perfectly fitting that he helped the beach hotel create a unique experience for guests.

In addition, you can take home a framed mini-print from the Mauna Kea series, which has a $200 value. Specific prints include "Beach Buggy," "Fredrico Cheers," "Afternoon Stroll," and "Surf's Up," which you can take a look at on Malin's website. And as an extra perk, you'll also be able to take home Gray Malin x Mauna Kea Beach Hotel tote bags.
