Wandering Iris Tuesday Pik – Week 12

Coco Palms Resort, Wailua, Kauai

The Coco Palms Resort Hotel has been abandoned since Hurricane Iniki in 1992. 

This is the hotel that was used in the Elvis Presley movie Blue Hawaii.  Wailua is a small community on the south side of the larger town of Kapaa and on the north side of the Wailua River.

    Too bad it can’t be saved. Or is someone working on that? I would think someone would want to save it, it has historical value! Elvis slept there!

    1. I think that a large resort chain is planning on renovating it. It might reopen in 2017.

        I think that would be great if they could renovate and reopen it. Maybe I could actually go there someday.

    Surprising that anything on Hawaii would be abandoned.
