Introduction to Molokai Ranch

An introduction to the 64,000 acre development property in West Molokai that is commonly known as the Molokai Ranch.

Molokai Ranch

Molokai Ranch is the common name for Molokai Properties Limited, a 64,000 acre development property in west Molokai, which includes includes approximately 40% of the entire island of Molokai. The Molokai Ranch includes a working cattle ranch, a 22 room luxury lodge, a 40-unit platform tent lodge, fee simple real estate for sale, and a beautiful white sand beach.

History of Molokai Ranch

In 1897, a group of businessmen purchased 70,000 acres on the western half of Molokai and leased another 30,000 acres from the government. They opened a ranch on the property, and they raised cattle, horses, mules, and sheep. They leased some of their property to Libby and Del Monte for pineapple cultivation between 1923 and 1985. Molokai Properties Limited was a privately owned company until the 1980's, when it was purchased by BIL International Limited of Singapore.

Kaluakoi Resort
Molokai Ranch bought the Kaluakoi Resort in 2001. The previous owner shut down the 198 room hotel and 18 hole golf course in January of 2001. Peter Nicholas restated the company's commitment to remodel and eventually reopen the Kaluakoi Hotel and resort. It is expected that reopening that resort will create about 100 jobs on Molokai and increase Molokai tourism by up to 50%.

Real Estate Developments at Molokai Ranch

Laau Point Development Project
The Molokai Properties plan to build a $200 million, 1432 development at Molokai's La'au Point has generated a lot of controversy. One of the goals of the Laau Point Development Project is to finance remodeling and reopening the Kaluakoi Resort on Molokai. The Molokai Ranch has been losing money in recent years and the developers say without the Laau Point project they may be forced to break the ranch up into smaller parcels and sell them. In change for developing Laau Point, the Molokai Ranch agreed to give more then 50,000 acres to the community, which includes 15 milse of undeveloped shoreline.
