There were no developer or re-sales at the Residences at Kapalua Bay in 2013. Formerly the Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua Bay, the property was foreclosed on in early 2013 and is now under new ownership. Montage Hotels and Resorts has been appointed the management company of the property, which will be known as the Montage Residences Kapalua Bay, and they are in the midst of capital improvements which include a new restaurant and bar that will be open to the public.
