Kona Village Resort


Tsunami Damage Update:
The Kona Village Resort pencils in a late 2013 re-opening.

Patrick Fitzgerald, president and chief executive officer recently spoke about the progress toward rennovation and re-opening the Kona Village Resort.

Although no official plans have been made they are looking at a goal of the 3rd or 4th quarter of 2013 as a re-opening. Fitzgerald said "Kona Village will see more than just its infrastructure upgraded prior to re-opening. Some of the projects currently being discussed include adding new restaurant spaces, building bigger pools, enhancing the spa and fitness facilities and renovating all of the hale accommodations."

Fitzgerald went on to say: "My plan was to have the resort open by the end of 2013," he said. "Is that possible? Yes. If we start work soon, we might be able to make the end of next year. It's going to be hard, but we certainly want to open as soon as possible."


The Kona Village Resort offers a unique vacation get-a-way with 125 thatched-roof "Hales." These thatched Hale Huts are spaced for privacy and stand on stilts along the ocean, beach, lagoon and gardens. Together they form a Polynesian village of huts like those of old Hawaii. The Kona Village Resort is located on a secluded beach in a sheltered cove and is perfect for the traveler looking to get away. We say this because there are no televisions, air-conditioning, telephones or radios in the units, yet they are still refined and deluxe accommodations.

The Resort review below from David says is best. Kona Village Resort is a family atmosphere. Read the review below and you will understand what Kona Village Resort is all about. Tranquility, ocean, beach, activities and romance are the themes of the Kona Village Resort. This is a great resort for those looking to really get-a-way from the hustle of life and reconnect.

Facilities:
537 Rooms, Air Conditioning, Large Pool, Bar, 2 Restaurants, Fitness Center, Day Spa, Parking

"I have stayed at Kona Village 13 times and hope for more, Kona Village has become like a home to me. The food is the best food I have ever tasted and the veiws from hale LT3 are come complete with waves crashing against the rocks. There is only one bad thing about Kona Village: that you have to leave. I would recomend Kona Village to everyone, especially families. It has even become a tradition for my family to go every thanks giving when it is not too hot and the Kalua turkey is avilable at the feast. Kona Village is a great experience that is refreshing and rejuvinateing." - Martina from Novato, Calif

"Let me start with my favorite memory of KVR. I hadn't been able to visit for three or four years, and when I did come back, the first person I went to see was Auntie Eleanor. When she saw me she greeted me with a huge hug and said, "Oh, David, I wondered when you were coming home!" Now, that's not customer relations, that's family! My first visit was in 1970 and my most recent, last April, was my eighteenth, so it's true that I've been there enough to get to know many of the staff, and they to remember me. I've never felt so welcomed and comfortable in any other place. Since everyone stays in their own cottage (they call them hales), over the years I've stayed on the lava, the beach, and the pond, in the Samoan style, the New Hebrides, the Maoris and the Tahitians, and while I have preferences, they're all very acceptable.

KVR is not for everyone. No air conditioning (just a ceiling fan), no phones, no radios, no TV, no room service, but first class nontheless. To me, those are features, not negatives, but if you really need those things, the Four Seasons will welcome you next door. The food? Lordy, don't get me thinking about the food! Three wonderful meals with no inhibitions. I had to make a rule: I can't go back until I've lost the weight I gained. I was married there, barefoot on the beach at sunset, but unfortunately the wonderfulness of the wedding outlasted the wonderfulness of the marriage. I'm alone now and thought I wouldn't return, but I decided to try. When I arrived, Gail, the concierge, gave me a hug, Corky, the wine lady gave me a hug, Carole at the Bora Bora Bar gave me a hug, Sid, the bartender at the Shipwreck Bar said "Welcome home, David, it's good to see you again." Incredible. The spirit of aloha is catching, and all of the staff are infected. During my whole stay I never once felt alone, thanks to the staff and the other guests. (I heard someone comment, "This place is really different, the guests talk to each other.")

Now that I know I can go there alone without suffering severe psychological damage, I'll never again let a full year go by without a visit. My next visit is scheduled for January. I can hardly wait." - David from Paradise, Calif
