Then you can enjoy all the Westin offers with easy access to cultural and archaeological gems nestled between centuries-old lava fields. Trek a portion of the historic Ala Kahakai National Trail on Hapuna Beach, enjoy a few holes at Hapuna Golf Course, or take a private manta ray snorkel tour via moonlight with the Mauna Kea rays. Then relax with the Hapuna Spa with Mandara and a night of stargazing at Mauna Kea’s summit for an unforgettable view. This trip is all about you.
