Incorporating contemporary Hawaiian-inspired design, complete renovations to the guest rooms, pool deck and public spaces – including the lobby, corridors, elevator and hotel exterior – will usher in a new chapter of this cosmopolitan retreat. The award-winning team from Hart Howerton has been retained as the project architects from concept to completion, with luxury interior-design firm SFA Design steering the timeless, coastal décor. Guest rooms will draw in the calming deep-teal hues of the Pacific Ocean with accents of marigold found in local flora. Sophisticated use of texture throughout the hotel interior – from Hawaiian tapa designs, carved wood insertions and intricate rope art – will provide a unique, well-appointed ambiance and island sense of place.Alongside the aesthetic update and enhanced arrival experience, the hotel will feature the latest in-room technology and embrace contemporary environmental considerations. An all-new meeting space will also be added, ideal for professionals and groups working in paradise. Renovations will be completed in phases for minimal guest disruption.IMAGE: Waikiki Beachcomber by Outrigger room renderinglast_img read more
