Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach in Hawaii recently unveiled the finished product of an $18 million makeover that included a remodeled pool and expanded pool-deck area and upgraded guest rooms and suites - including new glass railings to all oceanfront rooms and suites.
“We’re delighted to show our guests what we’ve been working on for the past eight months at Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach,” said Patsy Narimatsu, director of sales and marketing for Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach, in a written release. “Our continued hope is to be able to maximize our visitors’ experience and provide them with an unforgettable stay on the shores of Waikiki.”
The Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach now features 524 newly renovated guest rooms and corner suites with views of Diamond Head, the Pacific Ocean or vibrant city views of Waikiki. The new oceanfront swimming pool is surrounded by a new pool deck tiled in natural stone with a glass surround for unobstructed ocean views. The interior of this property also has received a facelift with all guest rooms receiving new carpet, furniture, draperies and paint, along with new glass lanai railings in all oceanfront rooms and suites, which help showcase the impressive view from these rooms.
The hotel has also installed new electronic locks and in-room safes to provide better security for clients, as well as improved sound proofing of walls between rooms for added privacy. Warm earth tones including deep greens and gold were woven into the pineapple carpet patterns, tropical bedding and Waikiki artwork by Glenn Poulain in each guest room. Additionally, the interior corridors of the hotel have been enhanced with a custom carpet pattern depicting “kalo” or taro leaves as well as corresponding décor and photography of kalo plants by Doreen Decasa.
Guests of the Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach can also continue to enjoy the hotel’s Fee Free Escape program, which offers an array of complimentary amenities including free high-speed Internet access, free local and long-distance domestic telephone calls to the U.S. mainland and Canada, daily newspaper, use of the fitness center (open 24 hours), and complimentary cultural activities. Also, with renovations now complete, the hotel’s free vow renewal ceremony has returned, allowing guests to renew their vows in a beautiful oceanfront setting twice a week on Monday and Thursday mornings at 7:45 am. Couples must sign up at the hotel’s concierge desk by 3 p.m. the day prior to the ceremony.
