Ritz-Carlton Kapalua to Close for Renovations
On July 2nd, the Ritz-Carlton Kapalua will close to undergo an extensive $95 million rennovation. Here is a sampling of some of the changes:
- The guest rooms will be remodeled to include new furnishings, marble baths and Hawaiian inspired artwork.
- The spa will be expanded to 11,000 square feet.
- 107 guestrooms will be converted to two-bedroom, full ownership residential suites.
- New sushi restaurant
The resort plans to re-open in January 2008. If you want to stay in the Kaplaua area while the Ritz-Carlton is temporialy closed, since the Kapalua Bay Hotel closed last year, your only option will be to stay in one of the Kapalua Villas. These villas can be quite nice and perfect for families. I found this list of current special offers.
