Visiting old Coco Palm Hotel

A Little History:

The Coco Palms was the oldest hotel on the Garden Isle of Kaua`i, and was the world's most famous Polynesian resort. Elvis Presley filmed the finale of his film "Blue Hawaii" there in 1961, immortalizing its lush coconut groves and picturesque lagoons.

When Hurricane Iniki struck in September 1992, the Coco Palms was shut down indefinitely as repairs proved too costly and the entire island struggled with recession. The property, located on the southeast shore of Kaua`i, has been left to decay now for over a decade.

Coco-Palms.com pays tribute to the rich history of this venerable island landmark, and celebrates its promising future.

Currently the Coco Palms Hotel is CLOSED.
