Kona Village Resort is an iconic Polynesian-themed features cottages, a lagoon, sea turtles, black swans, and beautiful sunsets. Polynesian style architecture is different from the traditional resort- architecture. Kona Village Resort is vacation destination attracting many fans throughout the world. Patrick Fitzgerald, President of Kona Village Resort says that they were fortunate enough to evacuate guests and employees during natural disaster and that the resort exemplifies what luxury is all about. There are lots of issues to be solved and it has to cover health insurance of the employees and assist them with job replacement. However,it is the luxury aspect of the resort that interests us the most.
Patrick Fitzgerald, chief executive of Kona Village Resort is very sure of reopening the resort in near future in his interview and Coco Palms would be reopened in a luxurious manner in spite of all the issues. The Company owns both the Four Seasons next door and Kona Village, after surveying of the area, there is approval of insurance claim. So the company could rebuild the resort which would take approximately twelve to eighteen months. Most probably the reopen of Kona village will be in the middle of 2013.
Fitzgerald says that Kona Village needs to be upgraded with bigger pools, electrical work, new plumbing and, areas for children. People would look for air conditioning, television, phones; internet connection which could be added to Kona Village for its smooth transition into new future. The village’s key factors are laid-back atmosphere, Polynesian theme and separate hales that would offer experience when people come back to village with its wonderful recovery and upgraded amenities in old Hawaii.
