Puttin' on the Ritz

May 21, 2007 By: Mark Rogers Travel Agent

The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua to close in July for $95 million renovation; will re-open in January 2008

Maui's plantation-style Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua has announced a $95 million renovation of the entire hotel, scheduled for completion by the end of 2007. Look for all 297 guestrooms to include contemporary elements such as new furniture, porcelain tiles in the bathrooms and flat-screen TVs.

The interior redesign will use indigenous materials—such as
coconut and seashell accents with wood grains—as well as rug designs with patterns
of Hawaiian tattoo motifs with plumeria and Hawaiian print artwork framed with
koa wood.

The renovation also will include a new spa, scheduled for
completion in spring 2008. The spa renovation will double the size of the
facility and feature garden treatment rooms. Traditional Hawaiian treatments
will be offered.

In addition, the resort will unveil an expanded fitness
center and movement studio with panoramic ocean views; specially created
late-departure facilities with lockers and showers; a new pool bar and grill;
and major enhancements and additions to the resort's pools. The AAA Five
Diamond resort's restaurants will reopen with new names and concepts. Updated
amenities include miles of new hiking and biking trails, horseback riding and a
zip line through the West Maui Mountains.

A major change at the resort is the addition of 107 one- and
two-bedroom full-ownership Residential Suites. Residence owners will have
privileged access to all of the resorts' class services, as well as membership privileges
to join the private golf club and play the new Tom Fazio-designed Mauka Golf

The travel agent liaison for the resort is Heidi Denecke,
travel industry sales manager. She can be contacted at 808-665-7200 or
