Can someone help me? In which year was installed gold tiles in bungalows (I mean in bathrooms)? Who knows this information? Maybe someone can say who stayed in bungalows in 60's, 70's.




Thank you in advance!

STILL waiting on permits. Lots of hoops to jump through, with every little state and county dept. article from this morning's paper: http://thegardenisland.com/news/local/coco-palms-still-waiting-for-permits/article_9da4f69b-01cb-5bb4-9845-ee85e7c28d36.html?mode=jqm

Another step!


The $135 million project to redevelop the famed Coco Palms Resort on Kauai came one step closer to becoming a reality after Kauai County officials on Wednesday released the first set of permits needed to begin demolition work.

Hope they do the rooms in the old style decor.

Good thought. That would appeal to us, but may not appeal to their target market. I'm expecting with upgraded grounds will come updated décor. My hope is that it will still not be a "sterile" Polynesian treatment, but something along the very organic designs in many of the other resorts on the islands.

On another subject - have you looked up the life (and death) of the bratty blonde character in the photo? Its tragic.

Bump... 100 days have passed since the last Coco Palms comments were posted here. Does anyone have news on permits, demolition, clean-up, or any other activities?

Yes! About two weeks ago, they did landscape clearance on the property, which involved cutting back overgrowth from buildings to be 'demolished', and mowing down the 8' tall grass around the lagoon, cottages and chapel, and in some of the coconut grove.
The landscaping was prep work to give working access to begin the tearing down soon of what's being torn down.

Also, yesterday, they started having 24 hour security people on site, partly as a response to repeated arrests of people going in and stealing wiring out of the walls.

Thought I'd share this link to a facebook group about Coco Palms. It's run by Bob, the guy who does the tours there, he knows everything that's happening there and when it's happening. https://www.facebook.com/groups/98320760038/
