What was incredible was how quickly we achieved that sell out success.
KA'ANAPALI BEACH, Maui, Hawaii (PRWEB) October 9, 2006
Konea, the final condominium tower at Honua Kai -- the exclusive resort located on Maui's famous Ka'anapali Beach -- is being released at an early December VIP Sales Event, while reservations are set to begin October 4.
Last year, Hokulani, the first tower at Honua Kai, achieved sell out success in a mere six hours; Konea is expected to do the same. Drawn to the irreplaceable location, buyers of Hokulani were attracted to the nearly 40-acre resort for its luxury condominiums and extensive amenities.
"Honua Kai offered the first whole ownership condominium opportunity on Ka'anapali Beach in more than 20 years, so it wasn't a surprise that so many people were interested," says Todd Patrick, Director of Sales, Honua Kai, Playground Destination Properties Inc. "What was incredible was how quickly we achieved that sell out success."
The Honua Kai resort was master planned by Intrawest, a world leader in destination resort development and adventure travel. Playground Destination Properties Inc, the licensed broker managing the sales and marketing campaign, will be offering the Konea residences priced from $600,000 to $5,000,000+.
Konea, which translates as restored to health, is the second and final tower condominium opportunity for Honua Kai. Offering luxury studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom condominiums with open floorplans, Konea features exquisite interior appointments such as granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and frameless glass shower enclosures. Living rooms open to spacious lanais, taking advantage of Hawaii's gentle climate while providing commanding ocean and mountain views. Completion is scheduled for late 2009. Honua Kai amenities include expansive pools, beguiling waterfalls, a beachfront boardwalk, a full service spa and a casual beachside restaurant. Off resort, parks, championship golf courses, shopping, dining, and sporting attractions abound.

A place of inexhaustible pleasure year-round -- rare in North America -- Maui lures 62% of its travelers back.

Maui is experiencing dramatic increases in visitors this year-to-date over last year, including visitors from Phoenix-Mesa (+37.4%), Boise (+29.3%) and Fresno (+28.5%). This travel trend -- coupled with Honua Kai's unique waterfront location and luxurious amenities --are the reasons for its anticipated success.
