    Do the studios have a kitchen sink like HHV Lagoon Tower or not?

    I think they did but don’t precisely remember. (I think I would recall if they didn’t have a sink).

    The Studios are what stuck with me as the best units. There are some points deals and the units were a good size.

    Best,

    Greg

    You can get a single week with that point value. It’s a 1 BR premiere luxury at GW or GI. Probably also the new tower as well but not sure.

    LOL! I couldn’t buy a tour while we were there! Because our recent purchase had been within the last 3 or 6 months they wouldn’t even let me book an owners update. Even though our purchase had been long distance and we never actually got an update.

    Too bad. I wanted to tour the new property.

    Not only do you get free parking at Kingsland, if you’re staying at Kingsland you also get free parking at Waikaloa village and free use of their pool.

    Thanks, Greg. It's good to have studio options in Waikoloa. Most of the time I don't need a one-bedroom.

    We skipped Kings Land this year and stayed at the Lagoon Tower Makai-Ocean Side. I wish they were converting the Lagoon tower instead, way better location IMO.

    I was just visiting KL and went by the Ocean Towers building to just take a peek.

    They will be working on this in 3 phases. Phase 1 which is the area NOT in green in the photo attached by Helios. That section will house the new OT front desk check in area. There is a new entrance planned, allowing you to drive up and drop your luggage off, but I am not sure what parking will be available here. None of these are considered views and this first phase will only be standard units.

    There will be 2 additional phases which will be splitting the remaining of the conversion with the bulk of the Oceanfront and Oceanview units being converted during the last phase.

    I'm a bit confused by your comment that "None of these are considered views...". We picked up a brochure of the Ocean Tower last January. According to the brochure, the first phase does have Resort, Partial Ocean and Ocean views. The ocean views are closest to the middle ring on the Maui side overlooking the golf course. Phase one has the usual accommodation types - regular, plus and premier. During an owner update in June, we were told that once phase one is complete (the not green in the photo) that construction on the rest of the rings will cease for some period of time (implied several years). Who knows for sure. We're back on the Big Island in January and will check out the progress, if any, on the rest of the rings.

    I'm reasonably sure a multi-year gap between phases will prove accurate. From the photo, it looks like maybe 12 or 13 units in this first phase, and with six floors, that's 70-80 units. With 52 weeks/year, that's 3,600 to 4,000 intervals to sell. Given HGV's capital light development model, they will not want to expend capital to build out the subsequent phases until they need the inventory to sell. It could be a year - and probably more - between phases unless initial sales are through the roof.

    We'll be at Ocean Tower for a one-night add-on to our Kohala Suites stay next March. We used my free weekend night from my Hilton Honors Amex to book a Saturday night hotel room to sync up with a better return airfare on Sunday, March 17.

    Well given that the NON green area is currently NOT showing the Middle ring on the Maui side, I will stand by my statement that the current construction effort does not have any ocean view or ocean front units. I was there in Aug, perhaps they revised their plans, as the phase 1 I was shown was only a partial of the ring farthest from the ocean and mostly on the maui side, none facing the lagoon side. Phase 2 was to include the middle ring and a small portion of the ring closest to the ocean.

    The gap in the first two phases was posted in the other thread (see info below)

    It looks like that first section at the back would have views of the ocean.

    maybe the top floor or two. In the presentation I went to, the bulk of the oceanview view faced the lagoon, and the ocean front rooms were in the ring closest to the budda statue.

    Perhaps I wasn't clear in my comment regarding the ocean view. My reference was to the Maui side and not the middle ring. The brochure shows that the Ocean views in the third ring are on the north side (looking toward Maui) and are on the top two floors.

    Nice view. Can you let us know what it is categorized as e.g. OV studio?

    That photo is an Ocean View Studio, but the adjacent 2 bedroom model has the same view. There is a connecting pass through door that turns this configuration into a 3 bedroom. To answer a previous post, the Studio has a nice Kitchenette.

    Thanks for the picture. Hilton did a nice job with this part of the conversion.
