This is the word I got from Bruce Foerster, the Canadian owner.
I'm afraid that the reports are very true. Apparently a fire started next
door at Hamanasi got out of control and raged down the beach, setting the
thatch roofs on several buildings on fire. I am heading down there in a few
hours time but understand that there was considerable damage done to two
cabanas, the main building, as well as our suites building.
I am assembling construction crews as we speak so will hope to have the
Lodge back in order within a 6 - 8 week period. In the mean time we are
offering guests a 110% credit should they decide to delay their trip, a 100%
refund should they cancel it a 50% discount should they decide to still come
down. All tours and facilities will run as normal, with the exception of
the restaurant which suffered heavy damage. Meals will be served next door
at our B & B property.
Thankfully it was fully insured so the economic damage will to some degree
be minimized. Thanks for your concern!
