Stay & Play, Wine At Mauna Kea Resort

Two Hotels, Two Golf Courses, Eight Restaurants on Two of the World's Best Beaches 

On Hawaii, the Big Island, Mauna Kea Resort has welcomed groups from intimate executive retreats and board meetings to large incentives and associations.

"The synergy created by Mauna Kea Resort's two sister hotels, Mauna Kea Beach Hotel and Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel, and their associated amenities, means meeting attendees have multiple options to stay and play, meet and meander," explained resort director of sales and marketing Peter Thoene.

At Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, 252 rooms including nine suites were recently refreshed and updated. Renovation of the Beachfront Wing's 85 guestrooms, including six one-bedroom suites was completed in November 2013. The Beachfront Wing creates an ideal hotel-within-a-hotel option for groups.

Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel's 350 guestrooms including 36 suites have also all been refreshed with design inspired by Hawaii's landscape. New pool decking and new furnishings in Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel's three restaurants and lobby complete the 32-acre resort's transformation. An unexpected luxury option at Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel is the freestanding 8,000 sq. ft. Hapuna Villa. With four bedrooms, a full kitchen, living and dining area, private pool and deck, the Hapuna Villa is just what many planners are seeking to take things to the next level. Meeting space at Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel tops out at more than 20,000 sq. ft. indoor and a generous 71,000 sq. ft. outdoors.

"What all this means to meeting planners is that between Mauna Kea Beach Hotel and Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel, planners have a bi-plex synergy unparalleled in Hawaii," said Thoene. "We offer eight restaurants, two award-winning championship golf courses, two fitness centers, two spas, two of the most beautiful white sand beaches in Hawaii, 602 guest rooms and more than 100,000 sq. ft. of indoor and outdoor meeting space."

Mauna Kea Beach Hotel

Mauna Kea Beach Hotel's luxury guestrooms and suites in two buildings overlook the natural white sand Kaunaoa Beach - rated the best beach in the Hawaiian Islands by top travel authorities. Laurance S. Rockefeller, who founded Mauna Kea Beach Hotel in 1965, is reputed to have said, "Every great beach deserves a great hotel." Almost 50 years later, the inviting timeless ambience of Mauna Kea and its priceless collection of Pacific and Asian art, remains a landmark of luxury on the Big Island's sunny Kohala Coast.

Equally famous is the hotel's Robert Trent Jones, Sr. designed Mauna Kea championship golf course, updated by Rees Jones. An 11-court Seaside Tennis Club and exceptional facilities for shopping, dining, recreation and spouse and children's programs combine to offer a truly distinctive and pleasurable experience.

Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel

Opened in 1994, Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel shares 1,839 acres of oceanfront paradise with the legendary Mauna Kea Beach Hotel. Perfectly nestled into the bluffs above sun-splashed Hapuna Beach, the hotel has a breathtaking architecture that enhances without intruding on the magnificent natural landscape. Every room at the hotel is ocean view. Arnold Palmer and Ed Seay designed the popular links-style 18-hole golf course at Hapuna.

Prince Resorts Hawaii, Inc., operates three hotels in Hawaii: the Hawaii Prince Hotel Waikiki on Oahu, and the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel and Mauna Kea Beach Hotel on the Big Island of Hawaii.
