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.
