When Hawai'i became a state, and when the jet airplane cut hours off the travel time from the mainland, Hawaiian tourism became a boom industry. Mainland hotel builders brought mainland ideas, and the gentle 'aloha culture' of the Islands began a rapid change.
One man, Johnno Jackson, dreamed of building a resort to preserve the old culture, that would at the same time provide an excellent cuisine and high quality lodgings. However he also added unusual features--no TV or radio, no air conditioning, no room service, no locks on the doors, (everyone had their own cottage). This attracted a fiercely loyal client base of get-away-from-it-all folks who returned year after year.
When he selected a location, he chose the most isolated place he could find on the Big Island of Hawai'i. He started from scratch, with no water, electricity, or phone service, and not even a road! It's a fascinating story.
Beset as it was with difficulties at first, those troubles generated a bond between staff and guests that became a unique hallmark of the Village. He turned a stark expanse of lava into a lush tropical paradise with its own unique culture.
"Hawai'i as it Was Meant to Be" tells the story in affectionate detail through the eyes of a most unusually devoted fan. Told with words, 200 photos, and 14 video clips.
