We’re getting a new look at what Kauai’s historic Coco Palms Resort will look like post-renovation.
The resort unveiled its latest rendering, this time of lagoon-side King’s Cottages.
The cottages will sit eight feet above the lagoon to meet FEMA standards, and renderings were submitted for permitting last week.
Coco Palms has been closed since Hurricane Iniki tore through the state in 1992, and faced many setbacks.
Now, developers say the demolition phase is roughly 75-80-percent complete and on track to wrap up this December.
The entire project is expected to cost $175 million.
Upon completion, it will offer 350 room units, 12,000 square feet of retail space, three restaurants, and a cultural center spanning over four acres that will focus on the education and significance of the site.
It will be operated by Hyatt as part of its Unbound Collection brand.
The resort is expected to open in mid-2018.
