Yes. That's the main reason they will have a shuttle and/or pedestrian bridge.

Great update w/photos. Can't wait to stay there! The first and last time I was on Kauai was in 1987 when I could have stayed at the Coco Palms. I stayed at the swanky Sheraton Princeville (now the St. Regis) instead. A beautiful resort with great views of the Na Pali coast but without the rich history of the Coco Palms.

I was there today getting some coconut logs, here's a pic I took (through an instagram filter). It's the north wing, beach side.

Bob Jasper posted this today in the Coco Palms group on facebook.


He says demolition begins this October, and that just 30% of the total amount of structures need to be demolished. Mostly it's the smaller all-wood buildings. This includes the cottages, the chapel, and sadly, the iconic lobby.
Everything will be rebuilt as it was, though. The Seashell Restaurant will come down and be rebuilt, and may open before the hotel.

Here's a closer shot of just the buildings area.

Great pictures and links. I remember staying there and drinking in the bar, lounging in the hot tub and pool, the big shell sinks, walking across the highway to the beach...so glad it will be restored. Hope they remain in the historical likeness. I agree, a bridge to the beach would be fabulous.

When they finish it will be time to return. Old memories and new ones to be made. Wendy
