Status of Projects at The Valley Isle Resort

Updated August 16, 2017

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 possible 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. Calmer seas have returned and we now continue to have a nice sandy beach for walking, beach activities or just relaxing with a good book.

Below are a series of pictures taken between August 2016 and August 2017 that show the status of the sandbagged shoreline at various times. The sandy beach has fully recovered and hopefully calmer winters will prevail and the beach will remain at more normal conditions for the forseeable future. (Some variation in the beach width may may be due to whether the pictures were taken at high or low tide.)

Health Club Fire Recovery
We are happy to announce 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 screened-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, the permitting process is very complex and time consuming, thus the completion of the rebuilding is still several years away.
