Panel gives go-ahead on $250-million Grand Wailea renovation

The Maui News Reports that the Maui Planning Commission has given approval for the Grand Wailea, a Waldorf Astoria resort, to proceed with a $250-million project to renovate and expand the resort. Plans include the construction of an extension of the hotel's Molokini Wing onto the site of the current Humuhumunukunukuapua'a restaurant, expansion of pool areas and the removal of the hotel's chapel to make way for more rooms in the hotel's Lagoon Wing. Matthew Bailey, the hotel's managing director, told commission members that the renovation work is needed to keep the 20-year-old hotel competitive in the state and globally. The resort employs 1,500 people.
