Ritz-Carlton Kapalua Reopens Today
The Ritz-Carlton Kapalua reopens today (1/7/08), after a $160-million transformation.
The luxury oceanview resort on Maui’s northwest shore has been “privately” open for the last 10 days, housing the golfers, officials and media for first PGA tour event of the year, the Mercedes-Benz Championship, won by Daniel Chopra in a playoff.
The PGA golfers move on to Honolulu for the 10th anniversary Sony Open, which begins Wednesday with a pro-am.
The “reinvented” resort now takes reservations from the public for its 463 remodeled guestrooms and suites, which promise all new furnishings, dark wood floors, travertine bathrooms, all the latest electronics and Hawaiian print artwork framed in koa. There are also new full-ownership residential suites offering kitchen areas and spacious living rooms.
