New Build / Built

Built in the heart of Pineapple fields, the design evolved to respect the discovery of ancient burial grounds. The reduced scale allowed the design to step down the slope of the land to the sea.

Set on 54 acres, the hotel carefully maintains the sacred Honokahua Preservation site known as a wahi pana to continue the heritage and tradition of Hawaiian culture as a gathering place for ceremony.
