Angela Nolan, the Area Managing Director, Hawaii sent a Spring 2016 Association Newsletter to all Westin Ka’anapali Ocean Resort Villas timeshare owners. We received the Newsletter and share it in its entirety, un-edited below:
Renovations on the south side of the resort at the Makanikai Building 3 and Ahelani Building 4 began in April 2016. These renovations will include new carpet, sleeper sofas, dining tables and chairs, TVs, drapes, lounge chairs, ottomans, sofa chairs, artwork, Heavenly® Beds, lamps, washers and dryers, microwaves, refrigerators, dishwashers and table lighting. All lounge chairs received new cushion covers in December 2015 that will hold up better against stains, sunlight and water. For added protection from the sun and heat for the keikis, a playground shade cover was installed September 2015.
Spa Helani, The Heavenly Spa by Westin® is feature a new spring seasonal scent with special discounted spa treatments until June 30.
DINING & EXCLUSIVE EVENTS
This summer the ever-popular three-course Tramonto Prix Fixe Menu returns at Pūlehu, an Italian Grill. Italian for “sunset,” the Tramonto menu is fittingly offered from 5:30PM–6PM, Thursdays–Mondays.
Pūlehu is now offering handcrafted and unique cocktails in partnership with Westin® Hotels and Resorts, called Crafted at Westin. Sourced Hawaiian spirits are combined with fresh, islandgrown fruits, herbs and blends to produce a truly eclectic menu centered on bright, tropical flavors of the region. Chef de Cuisine Alvin Savella and the Pūlehu team have created a new dinner and dessert menu, incorporating the best produce and ingredients from our community of farmers and seafood from our local waters. Taste one of the best and unique products that Maui has to offer such as the Valley Isle Kombucha on draft or the new craft beer Koholā, brewed here in Lāhainā.
GOVERNING DOCUMENTS REMINDER
It is our priority to create a safe and enjoyable space on-site for all Owners and Guests, including those with service animals. Per the governing documents of our HOA, we adhere to the U.S. Department of Justice’s ADA Requirements for service animals permitted on-site, which is defined as “dogs that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities.”
All service animals who meet these ADA requirements will be welcomed at the resort.
