GROUND TRANSPORTATION

The Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel is located 30-minutes’ drive from Keahole-Kona International Airport (KOA).  The highway travels through scenic although oft times desolate expanses of lava and dry Mediterranean-like scrub.  There are many opportunities to stop for photos, drives to beach parks, or to visit other resorts.  As other resorts or destinations are several miles from Hapuna and not within walking distance such as on Maui or Oahu, a car rental or other non-pedestrian means of travel will be required to enjoy all the Big Island has to offer or to leave for nearby meals or shopping when not provided at the conference.  The hotel does not offer shuttle services.

SHUTTLES
Airport to Hapuna Prince Hotel round trip or one-way shuttle reservations are available through.

CAR RENTALS

image001
CSI HONOLULU has arranged a discounted rate through Enterprise Car Rental.  Please access their reservations on-line website by clicking here and going to: http://www.enterprise.com/car_rental/deeplinkmap.do?bid=002&cust=L36GP09

as part of their Hawaii VIP program.  Due to the possibility of limited car rentals which may or may not be impacted due to a large event occurring on the other side of the island in Hilo during the same week as the conference, it is strongly recommended to book now, regardless of your car rental company.

PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION

Public transportation is provided by the Hawaii County Bus, Hele-On, but although this bus serves the host hotel and nearby communities, there are transfers required between the airport and the resort, and this is not a recommended mode of visitor transportation.  The bus can be caught between the Hapuna Resort and neighboring Kohala Coast resorts such as Mauna Lani and Waikoloa.  See the hotel concierge for approximate bus departure and return times.

SITE VISITS AND PRE OR POST CONFERENCE TOURS

Transportation for seminars, site visits, and pre or post-conference tours are included in the tours themselves.  Seating is limited and will be offered on a first-come, first served basis.
