There are several videos up on youtube now about the ongoing renovations. I learned a few interesting tidbits from one of them.

The Naniloa was first opened as a hotel in 1939.
The name "Naniloa" means "very beautiful".
The Polynesian Room was built in 1964.

It looks like the renovations are providing some much needed TLC to the hotel after years of "deferred maintenance". Some of the videos show the Polynesian Room, but none I've watched mention any plans for it. If anyone knows, please share.

Would love to know if anyone has been back by this property since the renovations. Is the other side of the resort updated? There is no mention of the grounds or the Polynesian Room.

I was just directed to view this thread. Dang I wish I'd seen it before our trip. I've posted photos but we did not find the tiki style rooms that are shown here. We should have explored more. Wendy
