The Hawaii hotel lowdown

Hotels across Hawaii have been revitalising themselves during the COVID-19 pandemic by carrying out renovations and refurbishments, as well as creating virtual experiences to keep would-be guests engaged.

Catch up on everything that’s been happening lately at some of Hawaii’s most popular properties below…

Kaanapali Beach Hotel

Kaanapali Beach Hotel has been tracking along nicely with its ‘Kealaula’ project, which aims to further enhance the establishment of Hawaiian culture throughout the property.

The property renaissance involves a number of transformative enhancements, including a significant redesign to Kaanapali Beach Hotel’s 180-room Kauai Wing, a refresh of the property’s courtyard, the launch of a new oceanfront restaurant, and an additional floor of parking.

Alika Guerrero, Kaanapali Beach Hotel’s director of Pookela, is overseeing all cultural aspects of the renovation process, which is being guided with Hawaiian culture at its core.

The three elements of the Kealaula project are slated for completion in the last quarter 2020.

Check out some of the artist renders for the property’s new look below:

Waikiki Beachcomber by Outrigger

You and your clients can experience Waikiki Beachcomber by Outrigger from start to finish with a virtual tour of the property.

From the arrival at the amazing porte-cochere featuring the striking water bubble wall fountain with Zac Noyle’s 75-foot escalator tunnel underwater imagery as the backdrop, virtual guests can continue the tour to check out the guest rooms and suites with a choice of views – spectacular Urban City or the azure Pacific Ocean views and Diamond Head.

Waikiki Beachcomber brings a modern vibe to Waikiki with new stylish guest rooms and suites curated by local Hawaii artisans worthy for any modern lifestyle, all with private balconies and plenty of other features.

Embassy Suites by Hilton Waikiki Beach Walk

Newly modernised suites now are now available at Embassy Suites by Hilton Waikiki Beach Walk.

All of the property’s 369 one- and two-bedroom suites have been completely refreshed with new furniture and artwork. You and your clients can take a virtual site tour here.

As the world cautiously emerges from the COVID-19 pandemic, Embassy Suites by Hilton Waikiki Beach Walk is reminding guests that their health and wellbeing are its top priority.

In addition to adhering to its usual strict cleaning practices, the property is taking additional measures to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 and maintain a safe and healthy environment.
