Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel is well underway with its $46 million renovation and transformation to the soon-to-debut The Westin Hapuna Beach Resort. Here's a look at the first images.
The resort’s full completion and official debut of the upgraded property is expected in May.
The Westin Beach Hapuna Resort will be the only Westin on Hawaii Island and with the Westin brand’s commitment to meeting the needs of the traveler who prioritizes well-being, the resort is designed to be the island’s most meaningful wellness destination.

The four new dining concepts are Meridia, a Mediterranean inspired restaurant boasting a display kitchen, craft cocktails and expanded al fresco dining; Naupaka Beach Grill, an innovative casual restaurant with an extensive list of local brews on tap; Ikena Landing, an open-air breakfast venue with a buffet, a la carte options and fresh juices by The Juicery; and Piko Coffee+Bar, a barista bar serving Kona Coffee, a light menu and snacks.
Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel opened in 1994. As the second phase in Laurence S. Rockefeller's creation of Mauna Kea Resort, the hotel property shares 1,839 acres of oceanfront with Mauna Kea Beach Hotel.
Mauna Kea Beach Hotel was the first resort on the island built in 1965 by Rockefeller. The historic and storied hotel, now part of Autograph Collection Hotels, offers two championship golf courses, luxury residences, town homes and villas.
