(S-O-S Hui)

Thank you for visiting the Save-Open-Space Hui Site.

The purpose of this site is to disseminate information about Starwood Capital Group's (SCG) proposed resort expansion, commonly known as Glamorous Camping "glamping", on the Makai Woods Golf Course links 1 thru 3, located within the beautiful community of Princeville, Kauai HI.

Members of the S-O-S Hui are AGAINST this proposed “glamping” development.

The latest news & website updates (NEW 08/01)
  • (NEW 08/01) - Read the 8/1/21 email outlining the steps Starwood Capital Group must take through the Kaua‘i Planning Department and Commission and where ALL supporters of Open Space can oppose SCG's proposed glamping/resort expansion. (View latest permit steps version)
  • 7/18/21 - Read the summary of the 7/15/21 PHCA Board Meeting at which PHCA President Sam George reported the Board and its attorneys continue to negotiate with Starwood Capital Group (SCG). A number of community members asked questions of the board which are noted in the summary.
  • 7/14/21 - Read the summary of the 7/13/21 Planning Commission public hearing on Bill 2822. Unfortunately the Bill was deferred till Sept. for further review. This gives Starwood Capital a way to sneak under the wire in submitting their permit application for glamping but does NOT mean we are stopping our effort to halt their hotel expansion/glamping on the Makai Woods golf course.
  • 7/5/21 - Read the 6/29/21 letter the PHCA's President Sam George submitted to the Kaua‘i Planning Commission concerning input on Bill 2822's hearing scheduled for July 13, 2021.
  • 7/5/21 - Read the 6/28/21 rejection letter the PHCA BoD sent to Starwood Capital regarding SCG's May 1st, 2021 proposal regarding glamping on the Makai Woods golf course.
