The Hemmeter touch meant anything was possible to realize the fantasy. Trams and boats on artificial waterways provided guest transportation at the Hyatt Regency Waikoloa. Asian art, exotic birds and animals, and spectacular water features set his resorts apart from the ordinary. The development of the Waikoloa resort, on a barren lava field on the Big Island of Hawaiʻi, proved that human creativity can transform the environment.
All this luxury and fantasy provided the guest with a unique experience … at a higher price. The development of these new resorts was instrumental in upgrading the image of Hawaiʻi, helping to support a higher spending segment for the market.
