Hawai‘i Prince Hotel Waikiki undergoes 55.4 million dollar redevelopment
Honolulu’s beloved Hawai‘i Prince Hotel Waikiki and Golf Club, a favourite retreat for global travellers and Hawai‘i residents for the past 25 years, has recently undergone an extensive $55.4 million redevelopment – set to attract the next generation business and leisure traveler heading to the Aloha State.
The twelve-month evolution marks the hotel’s first major remodel since its grand opening in April, 1990. The redevelopment is due for completion in April 2017, with the 563 transformed oceanfront guest rooms and suites, all-new dining options and the refreshed lobby already complete. Still to come is a new infinity pool and outdoor entertainment area, enhanced meeting and wedding spaces and of course, the new elevated personalised services culture.
“We’re innovating the overall resort experience to meet the needs and expectations of today’s traveller by creating a sanctuary within Waikīkī that focuses on setting a higher standard for guest services with an eye on quality,” said Hotel General Manager Chuck Abbott. “Our remodeled guest rooms with floor-to-ceiling panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean will emphasise relaxation with their natural color scheme, décor, furniture and appointments.”
The culinary refresh welcomes three new culinary adventures, including 100 Sails Restaurant & Bar, Kastumidori Sushi Tokyo and Honolulu Coffee Company. 100 Sails Restaurant & Bar offers a whole new dining experience for the property, showcasing an extensive buffet and a la carte menu. Kastumidori Sushi Tokyo flaunts original Japanese cuisine by Executive Chef Noboru Nagumo, harmonizing flavours of Japan’s four seasons with local Hawaiian ingredients, while Honolulu Coffee Company can be found in the lobby, for light refreshments and beverages.
Focusing on upgrading the services, Prince Waikiki will offer an all-new experience with thoughtful design touches and new amenities. Guests will immediately feel a Hawai‘i sense of place at the hotel and discover the rich history of its location.
The hotel has repositioned itself as a sanctuary in Waikīkī, becoming more intimate in scale and offering exceptional services. Guests will also discover a connection to the area’s fascinating culture and history, portrayed through the art and installments throughout the property – an example includes the newly commissioned art sculpture designed by acclaimed local artist Kaili Chun.
Ideally situated at the gateway to Waikīkī overlooking the Ala Wai Yacht Harbor, Prince Waikiki is a choice location at the epicenter of O‘ahu’s four most exciting neighborhoods – downtown/Chinatown Honolulu, Kaka‘ako, Ala Moana and world-famous Waikīkī.
Housed in such a central location allows guests to explore the newest and most desired attractions Honolulu has to offer, from world-class beaches and shopping of Waikīkī and Ala Moana, to all of the multicultural and multifaceted food and restaurant neighborhoods that residents love. Just a short stroll away from outdoor adventure and some of the world’s most iconic hiking trails, the concierge team will help coordinate any adventure you’ve heard about – and make recommendations to some beautiful hikes only locals know about.
