KAPALUA RESORT, Maui – May 21, 2008 – The Ritz-Carlton Club, Kapalua Bay, the luxurious fractional real estate offering being developed at the world-class Kapalua Resort, has unveiled its residence model for those seeking a Maui vacation home ownership experience.


The 2,253-square-foot, fully furnished three-bedroom, three-bathroom Club residence showcases elegant island-influenced design elements, superb craftsmanship and enticing lifestyle amenities that will be available when The Ritz-Carlton Club and Residences, Kapalua Bay opens in April 2009.


“We have been describing The Ritz-Carlton Club lifestyle that is coming to Kapalua, and now future Members can see our vision,” said Merrill Yavinsky, regional vice president of sales and marketing for The Ritz-Carlton Club and Residences, Hawaii. “When you see the magnificent oceanfront setting coupled with the style and ambience that Ritz-Carlton is creating, those who love coming to Maui can envision spending several weeks here every year.”


Hawaii’s first fractional offering, The Ritz-Carlton Club, Kapalua Bay, is comprised of 62 fully furnished, two- and three-bedroom residences with interior floor plans ranging from 1,912 to 2,257 square feet. Club residences are being sold in deeded, one-twelfth fractional ownership interests, giving Members the opportunity to stay 21 days per year, while enjoying the personal services of a dedicated concierge staff in The Ritz-Carlton tradition.


Members will enjoy services that include twice daily housekeeping, pre-arrival provisioning of the residence, unpacking of garments, and scheduling of tee times and activities, along with reciprocal use privileges at other Ritz-Carlton Club locations worldwide. Each Club residence will feature a private garden entryway, gourmet kitchen, and spacious covered lanai opening to ocean and sunset views. Prices start at $350,000 per interest.


In conjunction with the model opening, The Ritz-Carlton recently hosted a reception for Maui realtors and brokers. “We wanted to show the local real estate community the opportunities Ritz-Carlton is bringing to Kapalua and let them see the model firsthand. The response was extremely positive,” continued Yavinsky.


For many of the 200 guests, it was their first visit to The Ritz-Carlton Club and Residences, Kapalua Bay. Realtor Adam Falb commented, “I think it’s a fabulous project. All the residences will have ocean views which is very critical for all the buyers that I work with.” Broker Dean Otto, who was familiar with the new development, added, “I’m very impressed with the quality of the product we’ve seen here.”


Also being developed concurrently at the spectacular 24-acre oceanfront site is the private ownership offering of The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Kapalua Bay.
