Westin Hapuna Beach Hotel was the vision and dream of respected hotelier Laurance S. Rockefeller. More than 37 years ago, he chose a patch of black lava in an inaccessible area, with two beautiful beaches, to create a work of art that changed the Big Island of Hawaii. Rockefeller envisioned a resort of world-class standards - complete with the hotels, golf courses and homes.

The first step was Mauna Kea Beach Hotel in 1965. In 1994, the second half of the dream was fulfilled with the opening of Westin Hapuna Beach Hotel. Steeped in Aloha, the classic elegance of Westin Hapuna Beach Hotel perpetuates the true Hawaiian traditions of the islands. The contemporary feel of Westin Hapuna Beach Hotel is manifested in its bold nature. Working together, these two distinct hotels comprise Mauna Kea Resort and create an outstanding experience.

All guestrooms are ocean-facing revealing the long inviting expanse of Hapuna Beach, each with spacious private balcony and double doors allowing for the trade winds to breeze through. Luxurious interiors are highlighted by a selection of natural materials, including rich woods and fine fabrics. The palette of chosen colors reinforces the sand, sea, and sunset environment afforded by the hotel's pre-eminent location.

Westin Hapuna Beach Hotel is situated on 32 oceanfront acres, nestled in natural bluffs overlooking the silky white sands of Hapuna Beach. Hapuna Golf Course features 18-holes of Scottish links-style championship golf designed by Arnold Palmer and Ed Seay. Taking advantage of the dramatic natural contours of the land from the shoreline to 700 feet above sea level, it offers spectacular views of the Kohala Coast and Pacific Ocean while majestic Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa and the Kohala Mountains form the backdrop.

In ancient times on the resort site, freshwater springs bubbled to the surface during heavy rainfall. These artesian fountains provided respite and renewal for travelers along the Kohala Coast. Thus the area was named "Hapuna" or "Spring of Life" in the Hawaiian language. This depiction of water became the symbol for the Westin Hapuna Beach Hotel.

Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel--a wonderful get-away
GLENDA S.
Jul 21 2017
If you want to stay at a beautiful beach resort on the Big Island of Hawaii, this is the place. The resort is off the beaten path, so it is away from the main attractions. That can be both a plus and a minus. We found it to be a plus.

AMAZING
KEVIN G.

We came to the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel for our honeymoon, first time Hawaii visitors. This was the perfect choice. The hotel is wonderful along with its staff. The beach is amazing, and the general feel of everything at this hotel is just perfect. The pictures of this place do not do it justice. I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel, and pretty much just Hawaii to everyone.

Do not book this property for you or your group until they complete their ongoing $60 million jackhammer renovation that is so very desperately needed. My stay lasted one night though should have been for two weeks. The nerve of this hotel for staying open during renovations is truly beyond anything words can express. Hawai‘i ain’t exactly next door and the level of disappointment..did I mention jackhammer renovations. Room was musty and dank. Intermittent A/CIf you insist on remaining open while your hotel doubles as a construction zone then empower your staff, Mr manager, to create a positive guest experience. I was charged a resort fee for amenities that were not available. The room I was assigned, 5524, was the worst room on the grounds. The free breakfast I received was nice but the result of a complaint that our door key wouldn’t work and remained inoperable till Ronald came and replaced the battery for us. Have always wanted to visit this property, now I regret that I did.

We've stayed at the Hapuna Beach Prince many times over the years. The things that have kept us coming back are the beach, breakfast and the staff. The hotel is going thru a needed renovation and when we stayed there over Thanksgiving we found that despite the construction it works really well. The renovation project has improved the beach experience simply because there are way fewer guests on the beach. My daughter said 'I like it better!' Breakfast is served in one of the meeting rooms, perhaps not the dramatic location used prior to renovation, but Charlie still delivers an outstanding omelet. And the staff is as always, great. No question there is a big construction job going on, but we had a great time.

Why are so many trees being cut down?

While I understand that the hotel is being completely renovated, it was sad to see the large number of trees that have been cut down at Turtle Point, at the North side of the resort. Why? None of the trees were close to the buildings. Some appear large enough to be older than the resort. Hapuna Prince is a beautiful place. Removing large trees that provide a tranquil shaded place to enjoy the gorgeous views should be a crime!

BEWARE, DO NOT BOOK Hapuna Beach Resort in Big Island

Hapuna Beach Resort in Big Island is under major construction/renovation, there are no hotel front door/front lobby/pool/view/dining/valet parking/AC at all. Noisy construction trucks are in and out the site. Hotel staffs are reduced to just one or two, so no response from receptionist. Due to the reduced staff on-site, no valet parking staff at bell desk in the evening. This hotel is a big mess and definitely not ready to open to public tourists at all. One family before me cannot open his room door because of damaged room card and my room AC cannot work at all. All tourists arrive under big shock as this is not like a hotel but a dirty/noisy construction site. Although all these problems, the hotel front desk staff still demands customer for paying resort fee, USD $31.25 per night. This hotel should be closed completed until fixing all these major problems. BEWARE, DO NOT BOOK Hapuna Beach Resort in Big Island.

Softest sand on the Big Island

Scrumptiously thick towels and A/C in the room with vast view to the ocean and beyond. The in-room ice bucket is magically filled each day. Live Hawaiian music, fish tacos and lilikoi lemonade in the beach bar. You can even enjoy while lounging in the pool. My tip would be to put your "service room" tag out as soon as you leave in the am so that staff knows you are out and about and you won't have the awkward encounter when/if you run back to the room for a bathing suit change or to freshen up.
