Status of Projects at The Valley Isle Resort

Updated August 2018

Shoreline Erosion
During the winter of 2015-2016 Hawaii experienced record high surf conditions, and as a result the Resort experienced severe shoreline erosion, as did many beaches on Maui and throughout all of Hawaii. Action was needed at the Resort to protect the building and property from future erosion.

During late May and early June of 2016, large sand bags were placed on the beach and with the summer currents, our sandy beach returned, with sand covering all but the top layers of the sandbags allowing for a walk on the beach, beach activites or just relaxing with a good book.

We were hoping that the winter of 2015-2016 was a one-time occurrence, unfortunately it now appears that the new norm is a nice sandy beach most of the time between April and October, and little or no beach more likely to be the case when the winter storms and high surf move in.

Below are a series of pictures taken during the summer that show the status of the sandbagged shoreline with a beautiful wide beach and also the sandbagged shoreline that you may expect during the winter months or stormier times during the year.

We are working with the other resorts along Kahana Bay, the county and the state to come up with a long-term solution that will both protect our building and also replenish and preserve our sand beach.

Placement of an additional 120 sandbags will take place during the fall of 2018. Additional pictures will be included on this page once the placement of the sandbags has been completed.

Lots of sand and nice wide beach to enjoy.

Health Club Fire Recovery
We are happy to say that the Valley Isle Resort complex has fully recovered from the temporary situations that were brought about by the fire in the separate commercial health club building on the Resort property.

The only remaining evidence of the fire, which you will only view from the parking lot, is a fenced-off area where the health club once was and the walled walkway through the unrestored portion of the lobby. Once you pass through the former lobby area and step into the courtyard, you will find that the Resort is now back to the tropical experience that has made the Valley Isle a visitor favorite for many years.

Planning for the rebuilding of the health club, the porte cochere, the lobby, and the walkway to the high-rise is underway, however due to the proximity to the ocean, that process has been complex and time consuming. The permitting is now essentially complete and the project will be put out to bid later this year with the rebuild to hopefully begin in late spring 2019 and completed by the end of 2019. We will provide further updates as the reconstruction schedule is finalized.
