Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel

Hawaii, Hawaii, US

With its seemingly endless views and dramatic elevation changes beginning at sea level and rising to 700 feet, Hapuna Golf Course nestles into the rugged desert terrain above the west shore of Hawaii's Big Island. This Arnold Palmer / Ed Seay golf course is a championship "links-style" design that was built in 1992 and stretches to just under 6,900 yards. The Pacific Ocean serves as the picture perfect backdrop and can be seen from every hole. Teeing off at just under 700 feet of elevation, the signature par 4, 12th hole provides one of the most spectacular panoramic views on Hawaii's Big Island - including Maui in the distance.  Hapuna Golf Course has gained a reputation as a hidden gem and for that reason is always a local favorite. Hapuna's challenging play and environmental sensitivity make it one of Hawaii's most unique golf courses.

Hapuna Golf Course is within easy walking distance of Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel with a full range of facilities and services.

About Resort

Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel

62 Kauna'Oa Dr, Waimea, HI 96743, United States


About The Resort

Situated on the sunny Kohala Coast, Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel has defined Big Island luxury since its opening in 1994. As the second phase in Rockefeller's creation of Mauna Kea Resort, the hotel property shares 1,839 acres of oceanfront paradise with the legendary Mauna Kea Beach Hotel. Perfectly nestled into the bluffs above the #1-rated Hapuna Beach, the Big Island, Hawaii resort presents a flowing, contemporary Hawaiian style where guests on vacation experience the true essence of rejuvenation.

A predominant feature of Hapuna is the presence of a series of underground springs. In ancient times, during seasons of heavy rainfall these springs would bubble to the surface creating natural artesian fountains. The resultant streams would provide a source of respite and renewal for travelers along the otherwise dry and barren Kohala Coast. Thus the area was named "Hapuna" or "Spring of Life" in the Hawaiian language.

  • 350 guest rooms, including 36 oceanfront suites
  •  Hapuna Villa an 8,000 square-foot freestanding luxury estate
