Update: Mauna Kea

Prince Resorts Hawaii was able to accommodate most Big Island travelers with holiday bookings at the temporarily shuttered Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, says Denise Anderson, Prince Resorts Hawaii's director of sales for luxury, leisure and corporate travel. Renovations are planned at the Mauna Kea to repair damage caused by the strong October 15 earthquake; Prince has moved all groups with 2007 bookings at Mauna Kea to neighboring sister property Hapuna Beach Prince.
