Starwood Vacation Ownership, a division of Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc., announced yesterday the development of The Westin Nanea Ocean Villas in Hawaii, a 26-acre oceanfront resort.
Scheduled to open in 2017, the new resort is located on Kaanapali Beach on Maui and will feature 390 luxurious villas and a variety of world-class resort amenities, including an expansive lagoon-style pool and a beach bar. The new resort will also pursue the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification for high-performance buildings.
Located on a 26-acre property which includes a 10-acre public park, The Westin Nanea Ocean Villas has been designed by WCIT Architecture, a local architectural firm and will be constructed by Hawaiian Dredging Construction Company, Inc. Resort amenities will include a 10,000-square-foot, lagoon-style swimming pool with an upper pool, children’s beach pool and play area, two plunge pools, three oceanfront cabanas and a WestinWORKOUT studio.
A full-service restaurant will offer breathtaking ocean views and an enticing menu of Hawaiian and international cuisine, plus the Westin brand’s signature SuperFoodsRX menu with nutrient-rich options. The pool bar will provide a relaxing setting to enjoy oceanfront views, cocktails and lighter fare. Guests will enjoy cultural programming celebrating local history, arts and crafts, music and dance, as well as access to resort amenities at The Westin Kaanapali Ocean Resort Villas located next door, including Spa Helani, a Heavenly Spa by Westin.
All villas will feature the Westin Heavenly Bed – featuring lush sheets, down cushioning and a patented pillow-top mattress, which cradles and contours to the body for complete comfort.
