The Westin Hapuna Beach Resort Receives Multimillion Dollar Renovation
Following an extensive multimillion-dollar renovation, the former Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel now is seeing new life as The Westin Hapuna Beach Resort. The retreat joins its sister property, Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, as part of the greater Mauna Kea Resort property along the Kohala Coast.
Expect four new culinary concepts—the Mediterranean-inspired Meridia restaurant (complete with a new HapunaClub/Member Lounge); casual Naupaka Beach Grill, serving Pacific Rim cuisine; open-air breakfast venue ‘Ikena Landing; and Piko Coffee + Bar—along with 17 new suites and 232 redesigned guestrooms overlooking Hapuna Beach. Among the other enhancements: a revamped lobby featuring a custom living wall and vertical garden; an all-new adults-only, infinity-edge pool with private cabanas; and CrossFit and WestinWORKOUT fitness studios featuring Peloton and TRX equipment.
“Guests also are invited to join our Aloha Ambassador to experience a variety of cultural activities,” says the property’s director of sales and marketing, Brad Doell. “Included is ‘E Ala E’, a morning ritual on the Hapuna Beach Lawn to greet the sunrise, clear your thoughts and minds, hear the oli (chant) and find peace within.” westinhapunabeach.com
