Discovery Land Company Moves to Makena

Developer Mike Meldman out of Scottsdale, Arizona is the tycoon behind Discovery Land Company, a catalog of extraordinary properties built to create unforgettable memories for guests. The private vacation club, founded in 1994, now has 18 residential resorts in 18 vacation destinations, aimed to be over the top for the world’s most discerning vacationers.

Makena Golf & Beach Club will be a beachfront community designed to be a mix of a private club and the convenience of a 5-star resort. The premier contender in developers for world-class vacation experiences with group amenities and stellar service is about to call Makena home.

The Setting

The 1,800 acres of what was formerly The Makena Beach & Golf Resort was an oceanfront 310-room hotel that will be redesigned into 50 ultra luxury Makai residences ranging from 2,500-5,600 square feet with options ranging from 2-5 bedrooms. DeReus Architects is on the project with sustainable, smart plans in place.

Kula Villas, Makai beach cottages, and smaller spa hales will also encompass this new community with the privacy and exceptional product that Discovery Land Company patrons have come to expect. The new vision is a great opportunity for investors at this side of the luxury Maui real estate market, as supply is barely able to keep up with the demand. What better landscape than majestic Makena?

Luxurious Amenities

Meldman is well known when it comes to private first-class accommodations. Anything but ordinary, these homes are “equipped with theatre rooms, infinity pools, and state-of-the-art game rooms. Team members will assist with planning custom activities and experiences. The spa and fitness center is cutting edge with grounds designed for the special guest that doesn’t have to leave.” This adds a notably luxurious element to what Meldman calls ‘the great exhale,’ the transition from urban stress to rural bliss. It’s this kind of attention that sets Discovery Land Company’s properties apart because they’re more accommodating.

Premier golf and clubhouses, first-class personnel, and world-class culinary experiences will be available. Aimed at luxury, the resorts have elaborate comfort stations with full bars, ice cream and other endless treats, and a private chef.

With the Kukio property on the Kohala Coast of the Big Island being a mentionable favorite, other communities include Silo Ridge in New York, The Yellowstone Club in Montana, Chileno Bay in Cabo San Lucas, and the newest to add to the collection is Makena.

While chatting with someone familiar with the brand and not connected to the island, they were quite impressed by a company with such reputation investing here. They smiled and spoke of a country club atmosphere with top-notch amenities, spas, sports, and adventure. Encouraging a healthy lifestyle on an incredible terrain sounds suitable for our island and our culture. It was the first time hearing it from the other side, and I’m excited to see what’s in store.
