Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel, a 351-room resort, shares 1,839 acres of white sand, palm trees, and lava-rock outcroppings with its sister hotel the Mauna Kea. The property’s beach is equally as beautiful as the one that fronts its sister hotel, and although Hapuna’s interiors are more subdued, they maintain a similarly bright, airy feeling. In 2011, two years after Mauna Kea got a freshening up, Hapuna Beach got its turn; 96 of the oceanfront guest rooms and luxury suites were updated with Polynesian-style fabrics and traditional Hawaiian kapa prints, all complemented by raffia and blond wood furnishings, and white shuttered doors that open onto oceanfront lanais. For the ultimate underwater experience, rent fins, masks, and snorkels from the beach club next to the 6,865-square-foot Hapuna Beach pool, and head out to the rocky points at either end of the beach in the early morning, when the water is calm and crystal clear. Come evening, head a mile north to the Mauna Kea Hotel’s Kauna’oa Beach, where a large floodlight shines into the bay so travelers can watch as manta rays feed on tiny plankton lured to the shore.

Room to Book:

To walk directly from your room to the beach and pool, book one of the recently upgraded ground-floor oceanfront rooms (nos. 3100-3117).

Insider Tip:

The kids will love a walk along the lava rocks to Turtle Point, in front of the Beachfront Wing of the hotel, where eagle-eyed travelers can often spot turtles swimming in bathwater-warm surf.
