Thank you for visiting the Save-Open-Space Hui
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
10/7/21 - Read our summary of the 10/6/21 County Council meeting at which they voted to drop old Bill 2822 and unanimously move forward with new Bill 2838. Kauai is on the verge of changing its zoning laws with Bill 2830 so that "developed camping" (ie. glamping) will not be allowed on Open Space as well as other zoned lands.
9/25/21 - Read our summary of the 9/16/21 PHCA BoD Meeting. This was a rather contentious meeting run by PHCA's hired parliamentarian. The Board's glamping update was read by GM with little opportunity for community questions. We note in the BoD's update important clarifications. There were statements by the Board regarding the ongoing legal petition to the Court asking for a declarative judgment on whether glamping is ancillary to golf.
9/14/21 - Bill 2822 was UNANIMOUSLY PASSED by the Planning Commission. This was a GOOD DAY TODAY! The Kauaʻi County Planning Commission unanimously passed Bill 2822 which when signed into law by Mayor Derek Kawakami will no longer allow "developed campgrounds" on Open-zoned space. In addition, it also would only allow "developed camping" in resort zoned land and not in commercial space. This was a big step in helping save Kauaʻi's open space.
9/10/21 - We need your support RIGHT NOW in helping get Council Bill 2822 passed. Please take a moment and read how you can make a difference with just a few clicks and stop Starwood Capital's proposed "glamping" efforts in Princeville.
