New Resort Area Coming to South Big Island

Developer Sea Mountain Five plans to spend almost $600 million over the next ten years to build a 434-acre resort in Punaluu, near the south tip of the Big Island of Hawaii. Plans include a 70-room eco-resort in a partnership with environmentalist Jean-Michel Cousteau and a 200-room luxury hotel. The development will also include single and multiple family homes, renovation of the existing golf course, retail and commercial developments, and a marine conservation and cultural center. The Sea Mountain Resort was first planned in the 1970's, but only the golf course and a few condominiums were built at that time.
