Hawaii Resort Featured In Elvis Film To Be Rebuilt

  • A dilapidated Hawaii resort that was once frequented by several Hollywood stars and featured in Elvis Presley’s 1961 movie “Blue Hawaii” is being rebuilt.
  • The Coco Palms Resort, located on the island of Kauai, was damaged by Hurricane Iniki, the most powerful hurricane to hit Hawaii, in 1992.
  • The plan is to demolish the remaining structure and rebuild a 350-room hotel and cultural center in its place that will pay homage to the site’s rich history, Patrick Manning, a managing partner of Reef Capital Partners, which owns the property, told FOX Business.
