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 Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel. Steeped in Aloha, the classic elegance perpetuates the true Hawaiian traditions of the islands. On March 9, 2018, the hotel will officially become The Westin Hapuna Beach Resort. 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.

The hotel is in the middle of extensive renovations. Phase 2 of lobby renovations will be done in mid-February. A new adults only pool will be opening in late February, 2018. A variety of new dining venues will be completed by the end of March. Room renovations are taking place in all towers and slated to be completed by early June.

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.

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.

Frustrating!
Jet S,
Wed Feb 14 19:10:45 EST 2018
The construction noise is all day, 7 days a week. We visited Feb 1st to the 13th. When we arrived I wanted to cry. I had no idea the extent of the construction. The noise lasts into the night and makes it impossible to enjoy any quiet or peace. The last night we were there I called the front desk at 12:30 am because I could here a skill saw buzzing. It promptly started back up at 7am. I've never left a resort felling exhausted. The only bright spot are the girls at breakfast. It was good to see Charlie and the others.

Despite all of the construction personnel roaming the restort, as well as the construction noise, I did enjoy my stay at this resort. On check-in, the first room they put me in had a balcony overlooking a construction site with about 6 contractors sitting nearby, with easy access to the balcony. As this was unacceptable, I called the front desk and they were able to place me in a room all the way on the other side of the resort, which was much appreciated. The cleaning staff was timely and thorough and friendly. The bed in the spacious room was very comfortable as were the pillows. The bathroom was also large with good water pressure, though the tile in the shower could use some updating and the bathtub plug's chain broke after first use. The balcony day bed was also comfortable to sit and read in the evening before heading out for dinner at one of the restaurants either at the Queens Marketplace or the Kings Shops about a 20/25 min drive away, or the harbor about a 10 min drive up the road. I didn't spend much time in the room during the day, and self parked, never having a problem finding a space near the elevator. Also had no problem finding a chair/umbrella on Hapuna Beach (there are some waves here, just to note). The drinks at the pool bar or inside are expensive considering the short pours received, though bartenders were friendly. I walked the path to Mauna Kea beach having been told I could get a chair and umbrella there since it is a sister property, though on arrival, the staff at Mauna Kea wanted to charge me $20, even though no one at Hapuna Prince said there would be a charge. There were a bit of waves at the Mauna Kea beach as well, though not as pummeling for a nice soak/swim in the sea. The Hapuna Prince pool never felt crowded the couple of times I was in this area, though the jacuzzi seemed much hotter than others I've experienced. It would still be enjoyable even a few degrees cooler. I would have thought due to the number of contractors walking all over the Hapuna Prince as well as the construction noise heard in the bar, the pool and the pool restaurant that the room rates would have been less though that obviously wasn't the case. I felt bad for the musicians playing in the bar area at night having to compete with the construction noise (I was told the noise was to end at 5p/530p since that's when the music starts, though it always went on much longer after that). I'm sure this will be an even more enjoyable resort (and this is very much a resort, not a hotel, as it is very spread out; the fitness center isn't even in the main building as the spa is - you have to go outside and walk to the golf club to access it) upon completion of the construction, though even while they continue their transformation, if you're not planning on being by the pool or in your room the majority of the time, and don't mind driving to restaurants, this can still be a pleasant stay with what they currently do have to offer.

Fabulous hotel on fabulous beach

Although the hotel was undergoing construction while we were there, our stay was wonderful. The room was comfortable and spacious, although we didn't make use of the balcony because of construction noise. However, when the doors to the balcony were shut, we didn't hear the noise. And besides, we didn't hang around the room much during the daytime, when the construction was going on. Everyone on the staff was extremely courteous and helpful. The beach is fantastic and not too crowded. The breakfast area was attractive, and the poolside restaurant, which had just reopened while we were there, was excellent. We'd love to return.

The beach is still perfect and uncrowded

This was my second stay, the last 5 years ago. Yes, there is still construction happening and yes there is a pool area not open yet and yes the fancy restaurant is not open yet and yes you do hear and occasional sound of construction. However, the hotel is 1/3 full and that is a huge advantage. The beach area is easy to get a great spot, the pool has maybe 10 people around it. The hot tube... the same low volume. No waiting for anything. I'm an eat at the beach bar type of guy and there was always room to sit and not the rush of overcrowding. The updated rooms are great! I have to say the check in while efficient was not particularity personable.

Under Construction

Booked under the assumption that we would be allowed to use the facilities at Mauna Kea. When we arrived we were told that that option was no longer available because Hapuna's pool and pool cafe was open. Was not very happy to spend my vacation amongst the noise and dust of the construction. The "false" alarm in the middle of the night was a bit scary. This was our fourth time staying here, probably will look elsewhere next time.
