Montage Kapalua Bay welcomes community with opening ceremony
KAPALUA – Montage Kapalua Bay on June 12 hosted a ceremony to mark the official opening of Maui’s newest all-suite luxury resort.
Alan Fuerstman, founder and CEO of Montage Hotels & Resorts, along with Lantern Asset Management President Andy Mitchell, Montage Kapalua Bay Vice President and Managing Director Richard Holtzman and Resort Manager David Hoffman were all present to welcome the Maui community to the new resort.
A blessing by resort Cultural Ambassador Silla Kaina was followed by the presentation of a gift from Clifford Nae’ole, cultural advisor at Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua.
The intimate event welcomed community leaders and local dignitaries, and was hosted in Montage Kapalua Bay’s new signature restaurant, Cane & Canoe.
Resort associates led a traditional song before Fuerstman, Mitchell, Holtzman and Hoffman untied the traditional maile lei, signifying a blessed future for the property.
“We’ve had our sights set on Hawaii since the inception of Montage Hotels & Resorts,” said Fuerstman.
“Maui has a special place in my heart, as I first visited the island 33 years ago this month on my honeymoon, and subsequently, Maui has been my family’s favorite vacation destination. It is the culture of Hawaii and the sincere, gracious hospitality that is the embodiment of my hope of how our guests are treated at Montage Kapalua Bay.”
Cane & Canoe, led by Executive Chef Riko Bartholome, officially opened to guests and the public on June 23.
