Kauai, HI (April 18, 2011) – Unveiling a new experience in casual island elegance is the new Koloa Landing Poipu Beach, a Wyndham Grand Resort. An official opening blessing & ceremony was held Tuesday, April 12, 2011 with members of the local community, representatives of the office of Kauai Mayor Bernard Carvalho Jr., and Wyndham Hotels and Resorts President Jeff Wagoner, celebrating the first property in Hawaii to fly the Wyndham Grand flag.
The $150 million project is located on lush tropical land with 85 two, three and four bedroom residential style luxury villas boasting the largest guest accommodations on the island.

Koloa Landing Poipu Beach Wyndham Grand offers an experience that is reflective of the casual and natural elegance of the island with richly hued landscaping, breathtaking ocean views, and on site access to the waters of the Pacific. Villas are well appointed with interior and exterior spaces that transition effortlessly from indoor to al fresco living with floor to ceiling glass doors. Soothing palates of creamy neutrals are punctuated with brilliant island influences, comfortable textiles and finishes are found throughout along with indigenous hardwoods and natural stone, state of the art technology and gourmet kitchens equipped with Wolf® and SubZero® appliances. Tiki torch lit walkways meander around pools and resort paths lead guests across footbridges, along cascading waterfalls, lagoons and two pools.
