About The Resort Group
"Creating World-Class Resort Visions, Guiding Development, Investing in the Future"
We acquire, master develop, reposition and market domestic and international mixed use and master-planned resort communities. Our goal is to create resorts that deliver world-class experiences with a powerful sense of place.
World-class resorts are the highly successful blend of many ingredients: spectacular location, luxury accommodations, recreational amenities, convenient services and community kinship.
Led by real estate visionary Jeff Stone, our resort development projects are carefully designed to balance resident, visitor and employee needs with community interests, local cultural values and land use requirements.
We work with hospitality brands and management companies to develop design concepts for luxury resort products and strategies for their ongoing operation in ways that also maximize cash flow and long term asset appreciation.
We take inspiration from many sources. The land itself, with stunning natural settings and vistas, sets the stage, as do the region's history and cultural traditions. Then we weave together a mix of art and science to give the resort community its unique personality and to create quality lifestyles for the people who will live, work and play there.
With our experience in hospitality, hotel, resort real estate and housing, we successfully integrate the most desirable and appropriate components to ensure the highest and best use of the property.

Jeffrey R. Stone - Founder
One of Hawaii's most dynamic and intrepid developers, Jeffrey Stone is celebrated for his real estate savvy and as a local business entrepreneur who cares deeply about Hawaii and its future generations.
He acquired the stalled Ko Olina Resort project, dormant for more than 10 years, in 1998 and imbued it with innovation, energy and vitality. His vision of creating Oahu's first active family resort destination undoubtedly contributed to the success of businesses in the neighboring West Oahu region and throughout the state. Stone's infusion of attention and vigor into the area has strengthened community and visitor interest in the destination and revitalized the island of Oahu as a multi-resort destination by attracting numerous national and international investors to Ko Olina, including Walt Disney Resorts, Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance, Marriott International, Brookfield Homes, The Weinberg Foundation and Alexander & Baldwin. He was presented with the "Deal of the Year" award from the Financial Executives Institute (FEI) in 2001 for Ko Olina's turn-around. Stone also spearheaded the development of the state-of-the-art Ko Olina Marina, the first marina to be built in the State of Hawaii in 30 years and the cornerstone of activities at Ko Olina.
In 2005, Stone partnered with Morgan Stanley to purchase the 9,000-acre Princeville Resort on Kauai. Plans for Princeville, considered one of the finest destination resorts in the world, include resort residences and visitor accommodations, shopping complexes, affordable housing and careful but continued growth as it goes through a refreshing new era on the island's North Shore.
