Situated on the sunny Kohala Coast, The Hapuna Prince Hotel has defined Big Island luxury since its opening in 1994. As the second phase in Rockefeller’s creation of Mauna Kea Resort, the hotel property shares 1,839 acres of oceanfront paradise with the legendary Mauna Kea Beach Hotel. Perfectly nestled into the bluffs above the #1-rated Hapuna Beach, the Big Island, Hawaii resort presents a flowing, contemporary Hawaiian style where guests on vacation experience the true essence of rejuvenation.
A predominant feature of Hapuna is the presence of a series of underground springs. In ancient times, during seasons of heavy rainfall these springs would bubble to the surface creating natural artesian fountains. The resultant streams would provide a source of respite and renewal for travelers along the otherwise dry and barren Kohala Coast. Thus the area was named “Hapuna” or “Spring of Life” in the Hawaiian language.
Situated on 32 oceanfront acres, Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel features 350 spacious guest rooms, including 36 oceanfront suites. Each of these luxury Hawaii accommodations offers ocean-facing views, revealing the long, inviting expanse of Hapuna Beach from each private lanai (balcony).
Arriving at Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel is like coming home, even if you’ve never been here before. Most returning guests are greeted by old friends – the same warm, kind and caring staff who have been greeting the same guests by name, year after year.

Activities & Resort Facilities
On the Kohala Coast, we have tropical sunshine almost all year round. Consider outdoor pursuits and activities as part of your exercise regimen during your stay with us. You can be busy from morning until night or if you choose, you can relax and soak in the rays on the long white sand Hapuna Beach.
In addition to the heated freshwater pool and poolside whirlpool at the resort, guests can enjoy the white sands of Hapuna Beach. Frequently ranked among America’s best beaches, by Conde Nast Traveler, Hapuna Beach is a long stretch of pristine white sand. There is also a little cove nearby where the waters are sheltered and clear. On any given day, giant sea turtles may drop in for a visit. Otherwise, it’s the perfect place for swimmers and snorkelers to explore at their leisure.
The sky is so consistently clear over Kohala that even in mid-morning, the moon can still be seen hanging over the ocean. Stargazing is one of the most popular activities available at Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel. A high-powered telescope is set up for you to view the Hawaiian skies with the guidance of professional astronomers.
Children of any age are permitted at the resort at any time of the year.
