The stunning Westin Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel has defined luxury on the Big Island since it opened in the 90s. This immaculate service could easily translate to a beautiful wedding ceremony with the Pacific waters as the focal point. A destination wedding here would be one surrounded by nature, and there are over 1000 gorgeous acres shared with the Rockefeller designed Mauna Kea Beach Hotels, perfectly nestled into the bluffs. The focus of the resort is the rejuvenation for every guest who enters.
‘Hapuna’ translates to “springs of life” and natural springs are featured within the grounds that act as natural fountains.
Every month the Hapuna has a wide array of events on their calendar that feature everything from art festivals to special dinner series across the resort.
For a unique bachelor party, have the guys book a round of golf on the famous Hapuna Beach oceanfront golf course.

“Wonderful grounds, open, breezy and wonderful light. Secret tip: there are many small alcoves with great seating and views, a delightful place to sit, enjoy the view and a glass of wine.

“We absolutely LOVED staying here at the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel. We booked through Costco and couldn’t have been happier. From the front desk warm welcome even when we arrived at 10:45pm, to the gorgeous, half mile long beach with crystal clear water that never seemed crowded, the beautiful infinity pool, and the beautiful grounds, we were very happy with our stay. Our room had wonderful ocean views (all rooms have a view), a huge bathroom, and fabulous balcony that we had our takeout dinners on a few times. The fitness center and golf course were gorgeous. You do need a vehicle if you want to go anywhere, and everything is at least 15min away, and dining choices are mostly pricey nearby. Just something to consider especially if you have kids. We would without a doubt stay here again. “ – Erin G. 9/17
“Absolutely amazing resort, I can’t speak highly enough about this place! It is romantic, relaxing, and truly beautiful. At night you can lay on the beach and see the milky way galaxy, so many stars! The ocean view room was very private and the view was picture perfect. Do not hesitate, stay here! You will LOVE IT if you like serenity and are looking for a romantic getaway.” – Mike H. 9/17
