Oahu Hotel Staying Open During Room Renovations

On Oahu, the JW Marriott Ihilani Resort & Spa at Ko Olina is refining all 387 guest rooms and suites. The project is scheduled to be completed in early 2011. Good to know: Since the room renovation is being conducted in phases, the oceanfront resort is remaining open and serving guests.

New features will include:

* Custom designed furnishings such as an illuminated wooden headboard framing the bed, L-shaped wooden desk and cushioned lounge chairs on the lanai (balcony)
* Authentic fabrics featuring traditional Hawaiian kapa patterns
* 42-inch flat-screen LCD TVs with a technology jack pack to connect and recharge iPods, iPhones, iPads or other devices
* New mirrors and fixtures in the oversized bathrooms

The room renovation is the second half of a larger resort refreshment project for the hotel, which opened in 1993 as the first hotel in West Oahu's Ko Olina Resort destination. The Ihilani Spa has been undergoing a complete transformation, scheduled for completion in November 2010. Highlights of the improved full-service destination spa will include a new overall spa design, couple's treatment room, 24-hour fitness center and the HoŒonanea private  suite, designed for the exclusive use of wedding parties, girls' or guys' getaways and other small group retreats.
