One of my favorite places to travel is the Big Island of Hawaii. Where else can you find the tallest mountains in the world, the most active volcano in the world, and a surreal landscape of lava flows, desert vegetation, coffee plantations and tropical jungle? The Big Island and its welcoming, friendly people never cease to amaze me.
There are many resorts in Hawaii, some of them so large and overwhelming you need to take a shuttle between the various buildings because of how far apart they are. I once stayed at one of the Hilton Village Resorts on Hawaii, which was nice but it was literally a mile's walk from my room to my where my car rental was parked. That scale just doesn't interest me. I definitely prefer a place that's smaller and of a more intimate setting, and the Hapuna Prince definitely offers that being large enough, but not too large.
