PERKINS TWP.

Maui Sands Resort closed Thursday and is filing for bankruptcy, a company spokeswoman said.

The waterpark's owner owes millions of dollars to contractors for unpaid labor and materials, and spokeswoman Lexi Robinson said the resort will undergo reorganization under Chapter 11 Bankruptcy, then re-open in May.

In the meantime, the resort has reduced its staff from about 100 to seven people who will work in reservations and marketing.
