Top to bottom renovations include 129 refreshed guestrooms, an updated lobby, a redesigned waterfront restaurant, Vessel, and the addition of a 7,020 square foot SpaTerre, as well as 55,000 square feet of new meetings space.
"This restoration emphasizes the history and charm of a property that has, for decades, been a favored escape for Southern Californians," said Pat Colee, owner, founder and chairman of the board of Noble House Hotels & Resort.
Updates also include a newly built Tiki Bar and a revamped pool.
Kona Kai Club originally opened in 1953 as a marina intended to serve high-end yachts, as it still does today, and has been visited several well-known celebrities including Clark Gable, Gregory Peck, Dick Van Dyke and Liberace. In 1959, the Kona Inn hotel was opened next door, eventually becoming Kona Kai Resort & Spa.
