The Ritz-Carlton Kapalua, Maui, is a 33 acre property on Maui’s northwest coast. Situated adjacent to burial grounds of historical and cultural significance on a bluff above a pristine white sand beach with views to the Pacific and the island of Molokai in the distance, the existing resort underwent extensive renovations between 2006 and 2008. Originally built in the early 1990’s, the resort was in need of civil improvements, updated and refreshed plant material, and several new amenities, including a private cabana terrace at the existing pool, a new activity pool with an interactive waterfall and beach entry for children, a garden setting for new outdoor treatment rooms and outdoor spa, a private dining terrace at the main resort dining room, and an expanded outdoor terrace at the existing Banyan Tree restaurant. Repairs were made to paved walks and terraces throughout the resort property, specifically including new pavers at the existing pool terrace. An aggressive schedule and strict budget added to the complexity of this project; resort ‘down time’ was limited and most of the major property improvements were condensed to a narrow window of time when the Ritz-Carlton was closed to guests.
The Ritz-Carlton Kapalua renovation work was contracted with EDSA.
