Hokulani Waikiki by Hilton Grand Vacations Club made its debut on Tuesday, smack dab on the famous Kalakaua Avenue in Waikiki. The contemporary, urban timeshare property celebrated its grand opening with a reception hosted by Mark Wang, president of Global Sales and Hilton Grand Vacations.
Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell and other local dignitaries also warmly received Hokulani Waikiki as a final piece to the vibrant Waikiki Beach Walk development, which sports popular shopping, dining and entertainment.
“The opening of Hokulani Waikiki by Hilton Grand Vacations Club is the perfect finishing touch to the Outrigger-led development of Waikiki Beach Walk,” said David Carey, president and CEO of Outrigger Enterprises Group. “Waikiki Beach Walk was developed to be an exciting and stylish gathering place for visitors and residents alike.
That reputation has only been enhanced with the opening of the Hokulani Waikiki.”
The 14-story property’s list of accommodations and amenities is extensive.
It includes Waikiki’s only open-air, rooftop pool bar, as well as six private cabanas.
Its 143 one-bedroom suites each range from 545 to 575 square feet and include: a boutique kitchen, a Tassimo espresso maker, a sleeper sofa, a comfortable dining area, an integrated TV and gaming entertainment system, a soaker tub and even an LCD screen set built into the vanity mirror.
That’s not even mentioning the private balconies, and city or skyline views.
“Hokulani Waikiki is designed for sophisticated, cosmopolitan travelers – visitors who want to be right in the center of Waikiki’s excitement and energy,” said Bryan Klum, executive vice president of Hilton Grand Vacations–Asia Pacific.
“The resort has a great location, just two blocks from the beach and steps away from popular dining and shopping. But what really sets Hokulani Waikiki apart is its design approach, which combines a distinctive Hawaiian style with a vibrant, urban aesthetic.”
Add an overall design capturing the natural elements, a plunge pool, a hot tub, outdoor rain showers, a fitness center and a café that turns into a bar at night, and there is plenty on the property to please guests. Not a bad overhaul of the former OHANA Islander Waikiki Hotel.
