THE KONA REGENT RESORT, Kona, HI

This island resort, located along the spectacular Kona Coast on the Big Island of Hawaii, was designed to carefully integrate the existing unique landscape within the resort to create a lush tropical environment around ancient Hawaiian sites and fresh water pools. The landscape design was completed with Peter Walker and Partners.

The hotel was designed with 280 private villas, each with its own garden and direct beach access. The design also includes the development of the surrounding homes, and an 18=hole Bobby Trent-Jones golf course.

Joshua Cohn was Project Architect on this project while at SOM.
