Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort Begins Renovations

Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa has launched an extensive $13 million resort-wide renovation. Continuing through September, the transformation includes the complete renovation of the resort’s entire third floor public areas and the introduction of two new restaurants, new poolside lounge and bar, an upgraded pool deck and an entirely new Regency Club product.

The first phase of Hyatt Regency Waikiki’s transformation began with Terrace Grille, which closed for construction on January 3. The anticipated unveiling of SHOR, an American Seafood Grill, is scheduled for late April.

The space adjoining SHOR will become a brand new Regency Club, offering indoor/outdoor seating overlooking Waikiki Beach for the exclusive use of Club members. During SHOR’s design process, breakfast and lunch will be served at Hyatt Regency Waikiki’s Ciao Mein restaurant, also located on the 3rd floor of Ewa Tower. Regency Club services will not be impacted during the renovation.

The second phase of the resort’s renewal is estimated to begin on April 22. At this time, the current Ciao Mein restaurant and Elegant Dive pool bar will close, and construction will begin on two additional new outlets – Japengo and SWIM – expected to be completed in September. Japengo will feature modern Pacific Rim cuisine, sushi rolled-to-order and creative cocktails at a dynamic Sake Bar, and a lively, inviting ambiance. SWIM, the resort’s new, full-service outdoor patio and poolside bar, will feature cocktails, light fare, and live local entertainment.

Hyatt Regency Waikiki’s transformation will be complete with the refurbishment of the swimming pool and surrounding pool deck, scheduled from early May through mid-August.
