Hawaii’s Royal Kona Resort to reopen after 7-month closure

KAILUA-KONA, Hawaii (AP) — The Royal Kona Resort on Hawaii island plans to reopen to guests following a seven-month closure amid the coronavirus pandemic and a multi-million dollar renovation.

The three-tower resort overlooking Kailua Bay on the western side of the Big Island expects to open Thursday, West Hawaii Today reported Tuesday.

The Royal Kona is the only property in the area expected to reopen on the same day the state launches a program enabling travelers to avoid a 14-day quarantine by taking COVID-19 tests before arriving in Hawaii.

Since the implementation of the quarantine mandated by Democratic Gov. David Ige in March, visitor arrivals to the Big Island have dropped 97% and hotel occupancy has hovered at around 30%, the newspaper reported.

Royal Kona Resort General Manager Jay Rubenstein said there have been “quite a few” reservations already at the 428-room property owned by Honolulu-based Hogan Hospitality Group.

An outbreak in the Ischgl ski village was linked to cases in 45 different countries

One of Europe’s first coronavirus outbreaks could have been contained by the Austrian authorities, an official investigation has found.

Outbreaks at two popular ski resorts in March led to thousands of new cases and were worsened by “momentous miscalculations”, the report said.

One resort, Ischgl, was linked to cases in 45 countries after skiers brought the virus home with them.

Authorities have said they acted based on what was known at the time.

“There were errors of judgement that had consequences,” Ronald Rohrer, the head of the commission that led the investigation, told a press conference on Monday.

“They reacted too late,” he added.

What did the report find?

Investigators said authorities were too slow to close the resorts in Ischgl and nearby St Anton when the outbreaks became clear.

Thai Resort Offers to Drop Lawsuit Against Jailed American Guest if He Apologizes for Bad Reviews

Getty Koh Chang island in Thailand

Thailand’s Sea View Koh Chang resort says it will drop the criminal defamation suit it filed against an American guest, as long as he apologizes for the negative reviews and makes amends.

Over the weekend, the Associated Press reported that the hotel, located on the island of Koh Chang, emailed them a statement saying they “would be pleased to conclude the complaint under conditions that Mr. Barnes shows his sincerity and takes full responsibility for what had happened and remedy the situation.”

Last month, Wesley Barnes, a U.S. citizen who lives in the Asian country, posted a series of Tripadvisor reviews slamming the Sea View Koh Chang resort, prompting the hotel to take legal action against him. The resort issued a complaint to local police citing Thailand’s defamation laws.

Barnes was taken into custody and stayed behind bars for a weekend as he was

Universal Music Group announces $1.2B resort in Mississippi

BILOXI, Miss. (AP) — A coastal Mississippi city will be among the first sites to launch a hotel and casino backed by a major global music corporation, according to officials.

The $1.2 billion Biloxi resort, a partnership between Universal Music Group and the Dakia U-Ventures investment group, is set to include a large performance venue, a 1,000-room luxury hotel and a casino, according to a Friday announcement from the groups, which are also launching similar ventures in Atlanta and Orlando, Florida.

The Biloxi City Council in June approved a tourism tax incentive to redevelop a 266-acre (108-hectare) property that was once the site of the Broadwater Beach Hotel, marina, and golf course, according to the city resolution. The historic resort was built in 1939 and closed in 2005 shortly before Hurricane Katrina destroyed the property, news outlets reported.

Universal called the venture a “music-based experiential hotel” property and said
