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.
