• Waikoloa’s Lava Lava Beach Club Closing for Major Renovations

    June 06, 2022
    Toes in the Sand Beach Vibe Returns Later This Year
    Waikoloa, HI (June 6, 2022) ¬– Lava Lava Beach Club in Waikoloa Resort will close temporarily on June 8th to make way for a complete restaurant renovation. Lava Lava Beach Club, a Hawaii Island success story has more people seeking a Toes in the Sand restaurant experience than available seating today.

    The renovation plan includes enlarging the kitchen to include a cooking line, bakery, and scullery allowing the culinary stars to make even more Pineapple Fried Rice! Additional seating will be added under a plant-filled trellis and the men and women’s restrooms will be enlarged and reconfigured. Parking at Lava Lava Beach Club is expanding to accommodate 149 stalls. The La La Lawn will be even more fun with its own mini beach bar and an expanded retail experience complete the new beach vibe look. Stunning Anaehoomalu Bay sunsets will carry on without Lava Lava Beach Club while construction stretches out through the first phase opening in October. The full project that includes a new administrative building is expected to be completed by the holiday season. 
    “My partner Eric and I have been talking about starting our renovation plans for a few years now. While the pandemic pause held us back, we are now ready to get started, “ said Lava Lava Beach Club co-owner Scott Dodd. “Many of our employees including our executive chef will use the construction time to reconnect and refresh while some of our other employees may find temporary work before returning back to Lava Lava Beach Club.” 
    Kona-based Tinguely Development will manage the construction project. Architect and interior design by SWW Architecture and Interiors from Seattle is executing the beach vibe.
