Destination Residences Hawaii announces its acquisition of Classic Resorts

Hawaii: Destination Residences Hawaii has announced the acquisition of Classic Resorts Limited of Lahaina, a collection of five luxury condominium resorts and vacation homes in Maui and the Island of Hawai’i.

These properties will expand Destination Residences Hawaii’s existing portfolio throughout the islands, joining Makena Surf, Polo Beach Club, Wailea Beach Villas, Wailea Ekahi Village, Wailea Ekolu Village, Wailea Elua Village, and Wailea Grand Champions on Maui, and The Lodge at Kukui’ula in Poipu, Kaua’i.

Classic Resorts, a collection with 363 rental residences in total, provides vacation rental accommodation for couples, families and groups, through combining the comforts of a private vacation home with the amenities and services of a resort, in a prime oceanfront or golf course location.

The accommodations on offer range from studio to three-bedroom condominiums and feature fully-equipped kitchens, living rooms, private lanais, herb gardens, expansive windows, and a daily housekeeping service.

Resort amenities include picnic areas, pools, whirlpools, golf courses, tennis courts, beach service, SUP and surfboard rentals, fitness clubs, yoga studios, and spas.

In West Maui, Ka’anapali Ali’i is on Ka’anapali Beach, while Lahaina Shores Beach Resort and Pu’unoa Beach Estates are located on beaches in the historic Lahaina town, in close proximity to the boutiques and restaurants of Front Street.

The newly-purchased operations in Hawai’i are located on the sunny Kohala Coast within the Mauna Lani Resort. These properties include Mauna Lani Point, The Islands at Mauna Lani and Champion Ridge, as well as the luxury private home collection at The Cape, The Point Estates, and Nintendo and Toyota corporate homes.

Michael Cuthbertson, Area Managing Director of Destination Residences Hawaii, said: “Destination Residences Hawaii has over thirty years of demonstrated success in hospitality management in Hawaii, with an authentic appreciation for Hawaiian culture and values.

“We are excited to effectively double the size of our portfolio with the addition of these prime luxury properties and we are proud to welcome the Classic Resorts team members to our ohana.

“We look forward to providing these fantastic vacation opportunities to our loyal guests and continuing our mission to be a leader among the best places to work in the state of Hawai’I,” he added.

As part of the Destination Hotels collection, Destination Residences Hawaii’s portfolio features residential style vacation rentals located in beachfront, oceanfront and golf-front resorts. Each property across the collection is customised differently depending on the residence but all fall in line with the overall Destination Hotels brand.
