Marriott Infinity Pool

Belt Collins provided master planning, entitlement, civil engineering and landscape architecture for this major destination resort, which continues as a client of the firm. Having completed the land plan and supported the developer in entitlement processing including the Special Management Area (SMA) Permit and zoning district changes, Belt Collins was then engaged to design the backbone infrastructure and landscaping. The firm also provided design services for both hotels, the first in 1981 along with the 18-hole Beach Golf Course and the second in 1988. The initial hotel, now the Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort & Spa with 545-rooms overlooks historic fishponds and the white sand beach along ‘Anaeho‘omalu Bay. A second hotel, now the Hilton Waikoloa Village, had 1,240 rooms. The size of this hotel with its monorail, waterway with gondolas and special swim with the dolphins program made it an attraction like no other along the Kohala Coast. The second championship golf course, The King's Course, opened in 1990. Also developed in 1990 was the Kings’ Shops commercial complex, another Belt Collins civil engineering project.

Since then, Belt Collins landscape architects and civil engineers collaborated on the off-site improvements for the Kings’ Land including a design of approximately 1 mile of resort roadway and the Queen Ka‘ahumanu Highway intersection; a 2,000 gallon per minute regional wastewater pumping station with 3,500 lineal feet of force main; wastewater treatment plant upgrades; and 2.5 miles of 24-inch diameter water distribution main. Other collaborations included the Marriott Resort & Spa renovation; the 120-unit Hilton Grand Vacations Club Kohala Suites on a 9.5-acre site having more than 50 percent of the site dedicated to landscape with mature palm trees and hardscape elements complimenting the architectural design along with the design of custom landscape light fixtures and entry gates; and the extremely popular Lava Lava Beach developed with 4 beach bungalows and a restaurant on a site having an anchialine pond and historic trails for which Belt Collins was also the prime consultant. The most recent undertaking of the Belt Collins planning, landscape architecture and civil engineering team is conversion of the Hilton Waikoloa Village Ocean Tower to timeshare use. Planning services included preparing and processing of the SMA Application, Planned Unit Development and subdivision, with the design services addressing infill of an existing pond on the interior of the tower to create an event lawn area, vehicular and pedestrian assess improvements around the tower, and a 164-stall expansion in the main hotel parking lot in support of the project.
