On the island of Kauai, in Koloa, Wyndham Hotels and Resorts has opened Koloa Landing Poipu Beach, a Wyndham Grand Resort, the first Wyndham Grand property in Hawaii. On April 12, the official opening and blessing ceremony, including a traditional Hawaiian blessing of good fortune and prosperity, was attended members of the local community, representatives of the office of Kauai Mayor Bernard Carvalho Jr., and Wyndham Hotels and Resorts President Jeff Wagoner.
Located approximately 30 minutes from Lihue Airport and managed by Azul Hawaii Resorts (AHR), the hotel's 85 two-, three- and four-bedroom residential-style luxury villas feature floor-to-ceiling glass doors and Wolf and SubZero appliances, furnished by creamy shades, indigenous hardwoods and natural stone. Resort amenities include on-call private chef and personal shopper, while at the activities desk, the hotel can offer ways to see the island's untouched landscape by land, sea and air. Throughout the property, tiki torch-lit walkways and resort paths tour the resort's pools, footbridges, lagoons and waterfalls.
Guests with a mind to return can look at the Koloa Landing villas to own as well as to stay. Part of master-planned community, they are available in two, three and four bedroom furnished residences from $900,000.
Following the official opening, which marked the first of a multi-phase development, the hotel is set for additional villas in the next two stages of construction.
