The love I have for Hapuna Beach Prince Resort & Mauna Kea Resort is unreal.Sent on 01/28/2016
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!!!

First things first, we got married at Turtle Point at the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel on the big Island. It was very beautiful and everyone loved it - including my new bride.Sent on 09/12/2012
Next, we had the reception at the Kamani room at the hotel - and it was a great place to have a reception. The room is beautiful - I would say it could comfortably be a great venue for up to 70 people. There is room for the buffet, bar, and a dance floor that could easily have 30+ folks on it at any one time.
People loved the food - we had the Japanese buffet. Bring an appetite, the Prince Hotel loads up on the food.
Also, my wedding coordinator - Wendy - was awesome! Very trustworthy and a great coordinator. I would highly recommend her.

We recently got married at the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel this past August. We knew from the moment we visited that this was where we wanted to get married. We viewed a few other venues on the Big Island, as well as Kauai but ultimately decided Mauna Kea held a special place in our hearts. We went back and forth with a few different wedding planners at the hotel before being assigned to LaRoma. I cannot say enough about LaRoma and how easy she was to work with. We live in California so planning a destination wedding is somewhat challenging. LaRoma always listened to our questions and concerns and ultimately helped us create the most amazing wedding week. One thing to note is that with so many weddings going on and the overall Hawaiian way of life (that I'm not used to!) sometimes it took a little longer than I would have liked to get a response. However we had complete faith in LaRoma and knew our events would be perfect. We held our Welcome Dinner at the Hau Tree which was the absolute perfect location for this event. It was amazing to be on the beach to watch the sunset and helped to create a Hawaiian feel that we were looking for. Our wedding ceremony took place on the North Pointe Lawn followed by a cocktail reception and seated reception at the Luau Grounds. The entire day went smoothly thanks to LaRoma and our wedding planner Rachael with Vintage & Lace. They were easy to work with and always kept our needs front of mind. The venue is truly one of the most beautiful places I've ever been and LaRoma and her team created the most unforgettable Welcome Dinner and Wedding for us. The weather was perfect, the venue was incredible and everyone had the most amazing time. I would highly recommend choosing The Mauna Kea Beach Hotel for your outdoor wedding, you won't regret it!Sent on 09/25/2014
