    The Four Seasons Hualalai and the Kona Village Resort have closed temporarily due to tsunami damage. The Four Seasons plans to re-open on March 21. The Kona Village Resort will re-open when clean-up is complete.

    UPDATE 3/19/2011

    The Four Seasons Hualalai will now reopen on April 30. The Kona Village Resort announced that it will not reopen due to significant damage to the resort's infrastructure.

    i was just over there and it made the news quite frequently. they were very clear that they were working with other hotels to help the kona village employees jobs at other hotels. it did sound like they were going to rebuild, it will just be a while. the damage was very extensive.
