The Big Island of Hawaii is the location for our specialty Feast site this year. Situated on the sunny Kohala Coast, Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel will host our daily services and activities. As the second phase in Rockefeller’s creation of Mauna Kea Resort, the hotel property shares 1,839 acres of oceanfront paradise with the legendary Mauna Kea Beach Hotel. Perfectly nestled into the bluffs above the world’s No. 1-rated Hapuna Beach, the resort presents a flowing, contemporary Hawaiian style where Feastgoers may experience the true essence of the Islands.
Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel is located on the northernmost end of the Big Island of Hawaii, 30 minutes north of the Kona Airport. The world-famous Waimea area is only 20 minutes away; and the city of Hilo, on the tropical side of the island, is approximately two hours away.
The resort has offered us an excellent nightly group rate of $149 for ocean-view rooms (additional larger room accommodations will be offered at higher prices). Some condos and homes will also be available nearby. Since the meeting location and most activities are at the resort, this is ideal for those choosing to stay at the resort.
Activities at or near the resort include beach and ocean sports, golfing (two championship courses on property), spa, tennis, kid’s programs and hiking in nearby Hapuna Beach State Park. Several other group activities are planned for our attendees, including a family beach party, a family luau, a golf tournament, teen and young adult activities, and more. Average temperatures range between 72 and 83 degrees during September.
We invite you to join us for a spiritually inspiring and uplifting Feast in the natural setting of Hawaii’s Big Island this year!
