Royal Kona Resort Employees And Local Entertainers Offer Support To Puna Residents

Donation drives held at Don’s Mai Tai Bar contribute to statewide relief efforts

Kailua-Kona, Hawaii (June 25, 2018) – In the weeks immediately following the Kilauea eruption, Royal Kona Resort employees initiated donation drives at Don’s Mai Tai Bar during its Thursday music series with local entertainers, Henry Kapono and Johnny Valentine. During the performances, employees collected food and supplies for victims affected by Kilauea’s devastation. The coordinated effort generated two large pallets of food and supplies, and raised over $3,600 in cash. Royal Kona Resort staff recently delivered the donations received to the Puna relief station in Keeau.

“We are overwhelmed by the generosity of our employees and guests,” said Tom Bell, president of Hawaiian Hotels and Resorts, the hotel management group for the Royal Kona Resort. “It is heartwarming to see the community coming together to provide much needed support for our neighbors in need.”

The Governor of Hawaii mandated that as of Thursday March 26th, all new arrivals into Hawaii are required to complete a 14-day quarantine. “Stay in Place” policies have also been issued for some islands requiring all non-essential services to be closed. The health and safety of our guests and employees is paramount. We understand that collective action is needed to slow the progression of COVID-19, and because of this, we are joining many other hotels and businesses in temporarily closing the Hawaiian Hotels & Resorts Properties effective March 25, 2020.

We are currently scheduled to re-open on May 1, 2020 and are honoring existing bookings and accepting new reservations for travel from that date onward. We are closely monitoring the situation which has been changing rapidly and will reopen as soon as it is safe to do so, following guidance from the CDC, Hawaii Department of Health and state and local officials.

We will be waiving all fees for any guest reservations that include travel from March 15, 2020 thru December 20, 2020 that need to be cancelled or changed.

During these uncertain times, we are focused on supporting our staff members and community as best as we can. We will continue providing updates on our website and on our social media channels. We look forward to welcoming you soon.

Mahalo for your understanding and support.
Stay safe and healthy.
