It's in the process of being rebuilt to the way it was when the hurricane hit in 92. The recent fire is a minor setback. Everything that burned was to be torn down and rebuilt. It's scheduled to reopen in early 2017.

I have not been to the island of Kauai yet. I will endeavor to visit the Coco Palms soon after it opens. It would be fun to get a group of TC'ers together there and do a tiki and Elvis tour of the property, and to see the other things which the island offers.

I am really surprised that they weren't going to try and save the lobby before the fire. When we visited that was probably one of the most stunning/iconic original parts of the resort. Do you know if they plan to rebuild it as it was? I also hope they were able to save some of the amazing fixtures from that room.

Took the coco palms tour. The state that it's in is depressing. Bob the guide was super nice. Its amazing that he has been able to save and protect the place and its contents as much as he has.

Fire did a number on certain places...but most of it will be gutted anyway. I'm glad I got to see it before its either rebuilt, fallen down further or bulldozed.

Thanks for the updated pictures!

It's sad to see the new deterioration since the fire, but it sounds like most of it would have had to have been rebuilt anyway. Hoping someday I'll get to do a visit where we get to my stay a few days!

Lest we forget the bygone by glory, an old photo of the lobby building from flickr.

Great news, the Kauai Planning Commission this week unanimously approved all permits needed for the reconstruction!

That is great news! This place has been on my to-go-and-see list since I started reading about it here. My impression, from the photos and stories, is that the grounds are beautiful and ready for whatever rehabilitation they end up doing. I'm looking forward to seeing the next incarnation brings.

The thing which has me really excited is that other high-end resorts on the islands have been steadily raising the bar since the Coco Palms closed. I'm looking for something great to happen here.

Elvis has left the building- but wait, he's coming back!



Great news on the approvals!

Oh please let this happen. There have been so many false starts in the past on getting this thing going, that I'm hesitant to get my hopes up again. Have to admit though...this sounds the most encouraging of the bunch.

Crossing fingers. Go baby...GO!

Demolition starts next week, so I made a trip over to get some coco palm for carving.
The first week or two will be brush clearing around all the buildings, then they will start tearing down all the parts that are coming down for rebuilding.
While there, I found this!

I'm guessing it's a room ice bucket. The fine print says "A Park Lane Hotel", so it's later vintage, but still very cool and I'm stoked I found it!

Here's a pic of the logs I got, and 8 sprouting coconuts that I plan to plant around the island. Can't have too many coconut palms, IMO!
