PBN: Ihilani to close in early 2015
Ko Olina's JW Marriott Ihilani Resort and Spa is shutting down early next year, according to Pacific Business News.
The report says the resort will be renovated and reopened under a luxury brand.
In a letter sent to residents, developer Jeff Stone said The Resort Group is re-purchasing the resort after Marriott's management agreement expires at the end of this year.
There will be a private job fair for Ihilani employees.
Neither The Resort Group nor Four Seasons officials confirmed whether the new brand will be Four Seasons.
But, a new business was recently registered under the name FS Ko Olina Inc. whose address is the corporate headquarters of Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts.
