Honolulu’s Newest Hotel Unveils Art-Infused Design

On March 31, the highly-anticipated Surfjack Hotel & Swim Club in Honolulu, Hawaii, opened its doors for the first time to unveil its distinguished retro style.

Housed in a 1960’s-era building, the hotel’s concrete interiors were refreshed with local reclaimed wood, and infused with work by some of Hawaii’s most notable artisans, including more than 60 fixtures by Retrospect Designs, photography featuring mid-century Hawaii landscapes and restored aloha fabrics by designer Tori Richard. 

The public spaces and the design of Mahina & Sun’s by The Vanguard Theory, are characterized by statement pieces like custom wallpaper by Andrew Mau and Nico Made, hand painted typography by Matt Tapia and Jeff Gress, a signature mural by Wooden Wave and a staghorn fern installation by Paiko, a botanical boutique.

Inspired by the surf bungalows of Oahu’s North Shore, the guest rooms by Studio Collective feature hand-made furnishings – like a bespoke coffee table with decorative ceramic tiles, and a media console with vintage-inspired inlays – and local art that depicts the vibrancy of Waikiki – like indigenous Koa carvings, dream-catchers, quirky illustrations of surf life by Kris Goto, and vintage Hawaii postcards, neatly framed in glass. 

The guest bathrooms comes with with airy white walls, painted metal accents and sea-hued floor tiles. The cobbled surface of the natural stone shower floor has a massage-like quality that will offer extra comfort to guests tired from a day of island adventure.
