 Answers to Your Questions

Where will the expansion be taking place?

Phase 3 Header 2The Phase III Resort Expansion project will begin at the front (south-side) of the property and move towards the north east end of the property as it progresses through the different stages of construction.

Not all guest Villas will be impacted and for the Kauai Beach Villas that are closer to the expansion project, we are offering tremendous promotional rates.

When is the construction taking place?

We are working very hard to limit the impact of the construction on our guests. As such, the expansion will only take place between the hours of 9am and 5.30pm, with breaks taken for government holidays.

The entire project began in August of 2014 and will be completed in the beginning of 2017.

What will be taking place when I am staying at the resort?


As we move into the final stages of constructionProperty Map - 3, building’s 7 and 8 will be open starting July 15, 2016.

Building’s 12 and 13 are currently being finished, alongside the conference center and 350,000 gallon lagoon pool.


What additions to the resort will the Phase III project bring?

When completed, the enhancements we are making to the property will provide a premier Poipu Beach resort destination on the South Shore of Kauai for all our owners & guests. Phase III is adding the following amenities to Koloa Landing Resort:

  • Over 200 additional new deluxe studios, one & two bedroom villas;
  • A 150 seat three meal poolside bar & grill;
  • An expansive 13,000 sq ft (355,000 gallon) lagoon pool with swim-through waterfalls, water slides and cabanas;
  • 12,000 sq ft of meeting space with 6,000 sq ft pre-function area, and an 8,000 sq ft event lawn with full ocean views.


Will the pools still be open? What will the impact be on the existing guest amenities?

We currently have two resort pools, both will remain open. We will be adding a third pool which will begin construction in the middle of 2015 and be done by early 2017.

Our intention is to keep all current guest amenities open. If we feel that our guest’s safety is an issue with a particular amenity remaining open, we will address that and keep all our guests informed.

What is the difference between a renovation and an expansion?

A renovation is a remodel or restoration of the existing guest rooms and public spaces. An expansion, like the one we are doing at Koloa Landing, is an addition to the resort where the existing guest rooms and public spaces are not changed or altered. Typically the impact on the guest is less severe during an expansion.

Will the beach access next to building 9 be impacted?

We have closed the beach access next to building 9 for our guest’s safety. However, the beach access next to building 2 will remain open throughout the expansion.

What if I have more questions?
