Currently undergoing a $2.5 million renovation, Aqua Hospitality's Waikiki Joy Hotel will emerge with a fresh urban loft meets island paradise design and a brand new name, Aqua Oasis.
Expected to be completed by April 15, 2014, Aqua Oasis will be branded an Aqua Hotels and Resorts property and feature redesigned guest rooms, common areas and exterior landscaping.
The renovated hotel will offer an "urban loft meets Hawaii" design inspired by the property's large spacious suites and loft-like apartments, which favor groups and families.
In the guest rooms, San Francisco designer Anthony Laurino has combined playful design elements, such as bold patterns and bright color accents, with a backdrop of fresh neutral colors and natural finishes reflective of the hotel's city-based, island location. The open lobby space will be transformed into a social hub for guests with a welcoming communal feel. Summa International is overseeing the renovations.
Aqua Oasis is centrally located in the heart of Waikiki in Hawaii at 320 Lewers St. The 91-room property is within walking distance to the area's best beaches, shops, dining and nightlife. Best available rates for the renovated rooms start at $150 per night.
