 Mauna Kea Beach Hotel (www.princeresortshawaii.com) closed in December 2006 due to structural damage resulting from the October 16, 2006 earthquakes. Prince Resorts Hawai'i announced that $150 million is being spent on repairs and renovations at the hotel.

The refurbishment focuses on interiors, including guest rooms, lobby, restaurants and common areas. The hotel will reopen in December, and also introduce retail shops, a spa and a fitness center. The Mauna Kea Golf Course has also begun restorations, and will reopen in November 2008.
