The Short Version: Westin Hotel and Resorts is a luxury hotel chain owned by Marriott International. Its 269+ properties allow guests to de-stress in the lap of luxury. After completing major renovations, The Westin Hapuna Beach Resort has sought to carry on the Westin’s tradition of excellence by fostering a serene getaway and wedding destination in Kohala, Hawaii. This oceanside hotel invites couples to explore a romantic destination surrounded by lush tropics and sandy beaches.

The Island of Hawaii is known throughout the world as a breathtaking destination. It’s the third largest island in Polynesia. At least five shield volcanoes have contributed to the island’s formation and shaped its distinctive landscape, one eruption at a time. Kohala, located at the northernmost peak of the big island, last erupted approximately 120,000 years ago and is the oldest of Hawaii’s volcanoes.

Over the years, the Kohala Coast has piqued the interest of geologists as well as vacationers due to its centuries-old lava fields, dense rainforests, and white, sandy beaches. This is a one-of-a-kind destination, and many couples dream of having a destination wedding or honeymoon here. The Westin Hapuna Beach Resort can help make those dreams a reality.

The Westin Hapuna Beach Resort rests on Hapuna Bay just north of the Hapuna Beach State Park. The recently renovated vacation destination is ideally located on the Kohala Coast and can offer guests panoramic views of the clear waters and lush tropics that have made Hawaii famous.

Guests of The Westin Hapuna Beach Resort can spend their days exploring the ocean or the rainforest, or they can grab a beach chair and rest by the water or the hotel pools. The 249-room hotel fosters a peaceful and intimate setting for vacationers of all ages and backgrounds, and the hospitality team goes to great lengths to make guests feel at home.

The Westin Hapuna Beach Resort specializes in hosting unforgettable oceanside wedding ceremonies and receptions where couples and their families can enjoy the tropical atmosphere and the wedding planning staff’s personalized and attentive service.

Tying the Knot in a Tropical Paradise

Westin Hotel and Resorts has over 269 properties around the world. Some are nestled in the heart of big cities, while others, like The Westin Hapuna Beach Resort, stand alone on a private beach. These vacation spots promote health and wellness by giving guests a chance to escape the daily grind and focus on spending time doing the things they love with the people they love.

These award-winning hotels allow people to vacation in style and make the most of their stay in a picturesque location. This warm and peaceful atmosphere is great for couples planning a destination wedding.

The Westin Hapuna Beach Resort has seven wedding venues with a total 16,339 square feet of event space. The Hapuna Ballroom is the largest event room at the hotel, and it can hold up to 900 guests for a wedding reception and up to 650 for a sit-down banquet. This indoor location makes a grand impression.

Of course, if you prefer an outdoor wedding, the Westin team can accommodate you with breathtaking oceanside lawns and terraces.

Couples can say “I do” under palm trees beside the ocean at The Westin Hapuna Beach Resort.

Turtle Point, which can accommodate up to 75 guests, is a particularly popular wedding venue because it has ocean views on three sides of the grassy spot. The westward perspective provides sunsets perfect for late afternoon weddings.

The seaside lawns and gardens can provide a gorgeous natural backdrop for a wedding ceremony, and then guests can continue the celebration at a reception on the Breezeway Terrace, which overlooks the Pacific ocean, or the open-air Courtyard, which can fit 500 people.

A personal wedding planner can help couples decide which venue is right for their needs. The Westin team knows the hotel’s spaces inside and out, so they can recommend the best wedding venues and services to bring your vision to life.

The staff is able to curate specialized wedding experiences for each couple. This isn’t a cookie-cutter operation. The hotel commits to only one wedding per day, so newlyweds can be assured of the team’s undivided attention.

The Westin Hapuna Beach Resort Has a New Look

In 2018, the longstanding Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel took on an ambitious renovation project to offer guests greater value. The team updated the hotel’s amenities, rooms, and grounds and also gave its name a polish. Now, The Westin Hapuna Beach Resort is equipped to impress people seeking a romantic beach getaway.

The Westin Hapuna Beach Resort satisfies guests with its services and amenities.

The hotel’s redesign transformed all guest rooms into luxurious and contemporary suites. The hotel staff added a new layer of comfort by installing Westin’s Heavenly® Beds in every room. They also expanded the dining options, built an adult infinity pool overlooking the ocean, and established the Westin Wellness Center with a 24/7 fitness center and Hawaiin-inspired spa.

Hapuna Spa by Mandara offers massages, body treatments, aromatherapy, and skincare services to help guests look and feel their best. Couples can take this opportunity to pamper themselves and relax together. You can make an appointment by calling +1 (808) 882-5630.

The multibillion-dollar renovation project took months to complete, but the end result has been well worth it. The Westin Hapuna Beach Resort is now more beautiful than ever with a Living Wall of greenery in the lobby and partially submerged relaxation lounges in the adults-only pool.

Plus the Westin now has a variety of upscale dining options to satisfy guests, who can take their pick between a Mediterranean restaurant, open-air breakfast buffet, casual beachside grill, or coffee bar. The Meridia is a popular date spot with a smart casual dress code and locally sourced dishes. Reservations are required at this establishment.

Vacationers Create Treasured Memories on the Island

Westin Hotel & Resorts builds relationships with guests and encourages them to return to their favorite vacation spots again and again. The team welcomes all newcomers into the family, creating a friendly atmosphere where people can unwind and recharge at their leisure.

Couples who tie the knot at The Westin Hapuna Beach Resort can savor a beautiful wedding day, and they can return to relive those memories during anniversaries, holidays, and family vacations to come.

Newlyweds Analisa and Jason wrote to the Westin Hotel & Resorts team to say they had a stellar wedding on the Kohala Coast. “We would like to thank you for everything in making our wedding a dream come true,” the couple said. “Everything was perfect.”

Analisa and Jason said they planned to visit the hotel again and even called the island their home away from home. “It is people like you who make the island such a special place for us and what keeps us coming back,” they said in the review.

In a Wedding Wire review, a bride named Hilary said her guests loved the location so much that they have planned vacations of their own at The Westin Hapuna Beach Resort. “I highly recommend you plan your wedding here,” Hilary added. “I loved every minute of our wedding weekend and wish we could relive it over and over.”

The Westin Hapuna Beach Resort has 4.6 out of 5 stars on the Wedding Wire, and it’s growing its reputation as a phenomenal wedding venue in the heart of Hawaii.

“We had an amazing time and couldn’t have had a better experience anywhere else,” said another couple in a review of the resort. “Look forward to our next stay.”
