The WorldMark Kapaa Shore Resort, a Wyndham Resorts hotel, was closed this week after two cases of Legionnaires’ disease were confirmed by the health department.
The closure was done as a precaution and guests were moved to nearby hotels.
Wyndham Resorts released a statement saying:
“Recently, the Kapaa Shore Resort received confirmation that the presence of Legionella bacteria was found in two units at the resort,” the resort said, in an emailed statement.
“As a precautionary measure, we are temporarily closing the resort and relocating owners and guests to nearby properties so that we can properly remediate and get the resort back in operation quickly.”
The two Legionnaires’ disease patients associated with the resort recovered from their illnesses after returning to their home states. A third potential case is still being investigated.
