Note:  For best listener experience, headphones are suggested but not required.  


Aloha Ghostlore of Hawaii Ohana!

I am your host Uncle Jared, thank you for joining me for our virtual bonfire here on the beach!  

Tonight's episode is the first in an ongoing series that covers the many haunted hotels of Hawaii.  The first hotel covered in the episode is the Ritz Carlton Kapalua, located just a few minutes north of Lahaina on the island of Maui.  The controversial obstacles developers came across during the resort's construction was the start of new laws introduced to the state.  These laws protected the land and any historical artifacts discovered during construction. 

The second part of this episode takes us to the south coast of Kauai to a small hotel built way before these new laws were put in place.  Many claim the hotel was cursed from the very beginning due to the developer's disregard for items found and used in it's construction.  

So sit back, get comfortable, and let's get into this....
