We will be returning to the Big Island of Hawaii for the Feast this year, meeting at the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel and Resort, about a half-hour north of the city of Kona. This has been a very popular site, and this year will be our third Feast at Hapuna Beach.
This area north of Kona is called the Kohala Coast of the Big Island of Hawaii. The world-famous Kohala Coast is on the west side of the largest of the Hawaiian Islands. Hapuna Beach was included in Travel + Leisure’s 2013 “Best Beaches on Earth” list, and Condé Nast Traveler included the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel in its list of 10 best family resorts in Hawaii.
The resort is located next to its sister property, the five-star Mauna Kea Resort, developed by the Rockefeller family on over 1,800 acres of lush, tropical, oceanfront grounds that include not only the two resorts with seven restaurants, but also two championship golf courses, gardens and coastal hiking trials.
We are expecting between 300 and 400 people to be in attendance at the Feast on the Big Island this year. All of our services and meetings will be held in the ballroom at the Hapuna Beach Prince Resort, where we have reserved a large block of rooms at deeply discounted rates.
There is plenty to do and see on the Big Island. Of course, sight-seeing, shopping, fine dining, ocean water sports and beaches abound. Organized activities will include Family Day on the beach, a teen pool party, a young adult kayaking and snorkeling excursion, a family sailing and snorkeling adventure and a traditional Hawaiian luau.
You will find plenty of helpful information and pictures on our Facebook page, COGWA FOT - Hapuna Beach, HI. We look forward to seeing you on the Big Island! Aloha!
