Belt Collins provided planning and design services for the development of the approximately 853-acre resort from a barren lava field into the world class destination that it is today.  Planning approvals were processed for State, County and Federal permits, including completion of an environmental impact statement. Over the course of three decades, Belt Collins completed feasibility studies, land and infrastructure master plans, preliminary engineering and construction documents for the backbone roadway and utility infrastructure to support the Four Seasons Resort; two championship 18-hole golf courses and clubhouses; and 28 individual developments with a total of 212 single family and 122 multi-family units. The site design accentuates the natural beauty of the bare, black lava along the entry area. Closer to the developed portion of the resort the landscape provides a contrast with a grotto area, with integration of native Hawaiian plants as well as selected pockets of lawn and tropical landscaping.

One of the more recent in this string of jeweled destination resorts on the Kohala Coast is Hualālai Resort at Historic Ka‘ūpūlehu, featuring the Four Seasons Resort Hualālai. The development preserved ancient anchialine ponds near the shoreline as well as an ancient mountain to ocean and shoreline trails. Belt Collins has been assisting Hualālai Resort since its inception beginning with preparing master land use plans and securing all necessary development permits; preparing various infrastructure master plans; and completing the civil engineering and landscape design for the majority of the resort.

KUDOS should go to Trina Onuma and her team. They were tasked to complete the site drainage plan for the entire Kona Village site in a short time period and met the submission deadline.
