The Hapuna Beach Hotel is on the sunny Kohala Coast of the Big Island of Hawaii.  The closest airport is the Keahole-Kona International Airport (airport code:  KOA), about 30 minutes (~27 miles) from the hotel. 

There are driving directions on the hotel website, and there are also airport shuttle buses.

There are international flights that serve the Kona Airport directly, otherwise there are frequent inter-island connecting flights from the Honolulu International Airport (airport code:  HNL).
