|Guests surf in front of Outrigger Resorts at Waikiki|
Outrigger Resorts guests will be invited September 29 to raise a glass to Outrigger Hotels and Resorts founders Roy and Estelle Kelley's legacy at receptions being held at each resort, pick up a limited edition vintage T-shirt, enjoy special discounted room rates and participate in a fun social media contest.
The day marks the 68th anniversary of when the Kelleys opened their first hotel in Waikiki in 1947. At the time, the five-story, 50-room Islander Hotel on Seaside Avenue was the first new hotel to be built in Waikiki since the construction of the Royal Hawaiian hotel 20 years earlier.
From the beginning, the Kelleys' vision was to “share the spirit of aloha” with every guest. Today, that vision has blossomed into a global portfolio of 40 properties in the most iconic tropical destinations throughout Hawaii, Asia-Pacific and the Indian Ocean.
