Ritz Gets A Makeover

Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua recently finished their $30 million dollar makeover just in time for its 25 year anniversary! Trinity Investments, the new owners of Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua,  purchased the resort back in November 2016. The improvements are an effort to meet the needs of their guests. New contemporary furnishings with a Hawaiian feel. Floor-to-ceiling windows, and colors that resemble the ocean. Last on the list of improvements to the resort will be the Banyan Tree And Terrace restaurants.

Congratulations on the improvements and continued success!

Makena Resort Moves Forward

Maui Planning Commission is receiving praise for unanimously approving the SMA (special management area) for the $354.5 million Makena Resort.

The project was scaled down from 158 units to 134 units. These will include multifamily units, cottages, custom lots, and commercial space.

The project cut three multifamily buildings, two cottages, and one vacation rental unit. Lots for custom homes were moved and parking for the beach was increased.

Commissioners were won over by the attention to the community the project gave.  The resort has generated 160 jobs during the construction phase, and approximately 145 jobs will result from resort operations.
