the ritz carlton residences: It's Official: The Ritz-Carlton Club, Kapalua Bay is now Open! - 05/31/09 07:42 AM
Last night, the Ritz-Carlton Club, Kapalua Bay welcomed its first guests. 
While I'd been on several construction tours over the past few years, I took the opportunity to walk through the property last night, seeing it all for the first time.  Flowing rivers line the walkway to the lobby, and the sound of waterfalls greet you.  As I entered, I was struck by the view that captures the best of Kapalua: a tropical landscape, leading to Kapalua Bay, framed by the neighboring islands of Molokai and Lanai.
As I walked through the meandering pool area, I passed over bridges, waterfalls and grottos.  The first guests were … (0 comments)

the ritz carlton residences: The Ritz-Carlton Club and Residences - 04/20/09 10:02 AM
The Ritz-Carlton Club and Residences, Kapalua Bay are on schedule to open May 31, 2009. 
I had the opportunity to tour the Kapalua Resort's newest luxury condominium residences with clients just this last week.  It's exciting to see the progress of the Residences, as the grounds begin to take shape and the final finishes are being put on each residence. 
For those that had trouble visualising the layout, it's now possible to get a true sense of the floorplans.  Each gracious three and four bedroom residence is oriented to capture the view.  Spacious great rooms and lanais promise to be the highlight of the residences, whether … (0 comments)

the ritz carlton residences: New Life to the Kapalua Resort real estate market - 03/29/09 01:42 PM
The pulse of the Kapalua Resort real estate market is getting stronger, if the price is right. 
A flurry of activity occurred when a bank owned property was listed in Pineapple Hill I at $1,700,000 As Is.  An offer was received immediately, and the property is now pending sale.  Due to the status of the property, this represents a decline over recent sales of homes in Pineapple Hill I which averaged $2,358,333 since January of 2008.
There is also a notable price reduction of a one bedroom Golf Villa to $545,000 which is now the lowest listing price in the resort.

the ritz carlton residences: New Development Doesn't Have to Hurt... - 03/11/09 09:30 AM
I just came across this Segment by Tayfun King on BBC News which profiles Hawaii, and Maui in particular.  Mr. King covers the concern that over-development can hurt the islands.  As an example, a development in Makena, which has since been placed on hold, is featured. 
As someone who grew up here on Maui, I naturally have mixed feelings about development. I personally wish that our state would embrace a more responsible development, providing the necessary infrastructure (roadways, sidewalks, hospitals, beach parks, recycling) and consider preserving more of our open space.  In addition, I question why the county has allowed larger time-share developments, yet has put up … (0 comments)
