Waikiki’s renowned Hawai‘i Prince Hotel has just undergone its first remodel since it opened in 1990, with $55.4 million splashed out on a new lobby, 563 rooms & suites, pool, dining venues and a refreshed event and function space over a 12 month refurb.
The redevelopment is due for completion in April 2017 – still to come is a new infinity pool and outdoor entertainment area, enhanced meeting and wedding spaces and 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 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 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.
