Up to 300 guests

After a multi-million dollar renovation, The Westin Hapuna Beach Resort is a tropical-style wedding venue on the Big Island of Hawaii's sunny Kohala Coast. Replete with Westin amenities throughout, our oceanfront resort, which celebrated its 25th year in 2019, welcomes guests to work well and celebrate well as never before.

Our philosophy is only one wedding per day, assuring the team's complete focus on the success of your festivities.

    Beautiful grounds!

    As a makeup artist who frequents here often for our brides I have seen many weddings at this resort! The staff are amazing and go over the top to make it special and flawless. I love the breathtaking views and lighting this resort offers for photos at sunset! - Big Island Hawaii Makeup

    Destination Wedding

    This venue is amazing! The staff was very helpful and their attention to detail was exceptional. The food was exquisite and the planning and lead up to the wedding was such a breeze, especially since I was so far away. I was worried how my reception would turn out and it was amazing; the view in itself was worth it. If you're planning a destination wedding in Hawaii The Westin should be at the top of your list.

    The love I have for Hapuna Beach Prince Resort & Mauna Kea Resort is unreal.

    First, we had our wedding and reception at Hapuna Beach Prince Resort. This place is AMAZING. We got married on the breezeway which is a huge balcony overlooking the ocean and greenery of the Big Island. We had our reception at the Courtyard, a perfect area for a wedding reception. Our guests loved this location. The pool, rooms, and beach are amazing. Our guests have even planned vacations months after our wedding to return!

    Second, we had our rehearsal dinner next door at Mauna Kea. Such a perfect location for a rehearsal dinner, which was so beautifully set up. The sunset was beautiful and the staff is great and very flexible. We worked with catering to create a set menu, which helped make it affordable, and our guests enjoyed it.

    I highly recommend you plan your wedding here. I loved every minute of our wedding weekend and wish we could relive it over and over!!!
