WELCOME TO COCO PALMS HOTEL & RESORT

Bringing Life Back to Coco Palms!

Coco Palms is a legendary resort that, for nearly 40 years, welcomed guests from throughout the islands and around the world, bringing everyone together with great aloha. From this aloha, a unique and wonderful community thrived for many years.

Today it is the last Kaua’i hotel still shuttered by 1992’s Hurricane Iniki. Plans are underway to bring life back to Coco Palms Resort on Kauai, Hawaii and restore it for all who treasure their memories of this Polynesian paradise.

Coco Palms is the site of the famous wedding scene in Elvis Presley’s film “Blue Hawaii” It was also the home of Queen Debroah Kapule, the last reigning queen of Kaua’i

RESORT COMING SOON

The project would include 273 hotel rooms and 77 suites within the hotel’s existing footprint — a slight reduction from the 398 to 403 rooms that existed in the original hotel.

The entire 350-room resort, which will be flagged and operated by Hyatt Hotels Corp. does not have an exact opening date, although the developers have said they’re aiming for sometime in 2017.

The Coco Palms Resort was approved by the Kauai Planning Commission for up to 200 condominiums, 104 hotel units, retail shops and restaurants on the 18.8 acre Resort-zoned parcel. A pedestrian overpass from the Coco Palms Resort to the Seashell Restaurant was also approved.

Coco Palms, with its historical lagoons, magical coconut grove and sacred grounds, provides a wonderful setting for a development commensurate with the lifestyle and beauty of Kauai. It beckons to be brought back to life.
