The meeting and event space enhancements will feature Maui-inspired designs and innovative sustainability features that improve lighting and air quality and reduce energy usage. The LEED EBOM certified resort will unveil the transformed meeting and event space later this fall.
New Halona Kai Event Lawn Offers Beautiful and Customizable Event Space
Overlooking the famed Ka’anapali Beach, The Halona Kai event lawn is over 9,500 square feet with the capacity for up to 500 people for seated or cocktail events. Perched gently above the resort’s half-acre pool, this synthetic lawn entertaining space will be ringed with lush greenery and local flora. The event space surrounded by a peaceful koi pond will allow for presentations or wedding ceremonies without additional equipment. Additionally, the area will be updated with state-of-the-art acoustic and audio/visual systems and wired with 200 amp outlets and data and television cabling, creating seamless technology connectivity.
Monarchy Ballroom Transforms with Elegant Design Details and Sustainable Features
The enhanced Monarchy Ballroom will be transformed into a sophisticated and contemporary 18,000 square foot room that reflects the history and culture of Maui. Bold colors inspired by Maui’s dramatic sunsets and vibrant floral colors of the island, as well as a layering effect reminiscent of Maui’s long tradition of hand woven goods, create a truly authentic and dynamic design. A linear motif to the design of the ballroom, carpeting and lighting fixtures is a metaphorical reference to the bamboo beater-sticks used to color and imprint the beautiful patterns on Hawaiian tapa cloths. This rich, textured pattern is also carried into the design of the columns in the prefunction area, which are clad in a neutral colored, horizontal textured stone. The chandeliers are clusters of wooden boxes in various sizes, which have linear slivers of light projecting from their sides. Included in this renovation will be low-e coated glass to minimize ultraviolet and infrared light, while maintaining the amount of natural light transmitted. Indoor air quality will be improved with modern automation controls. Meeting rooms will have occupancy lighting sensors and lighting will be replaced with LED, reducing wattage and electricity usage by approximately 65%.
Relocated Regency Club Features Lanai Seating and Inviting Atmosphere
Debuting this fall, the resort will introduce a 3,333 square foot Regency Club Lounge offering guests a comfortable and spacious lounge, easy beach access, as well as lanai seating with breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean and the resort’s Oriental Gardens that feature wildlife, waterfalls and Swan Lagoon. The Regency Club Lounge will be flooded with natural light and appointed with comfortable lounge seating that nods to Maui’s long history of beautiful, handcrafted furnishings. Light colored and textured walls will reflect the day’s natural light, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere.
The Regency Club offers daily complimentary continental breakfast, daily local and national newspapers, light snacks and refreshments throughout the day and light hors d’oeuvres and Hawaiian-inspired desserts in the evenings.
The architect for the project is Los Angeles-based Houston/Tyner. The Houston/Tyner team specializes in luxury resorts, high-end commercial spaces and estate homes. Clear on Black, also out of Los Angeles, is designing the interior spaces.
