Diamond Resorts has announced that it has closed on the acquisition of The Modern Honolulu, a luxury hotel in Honolulu. The Modern Honolulu is Diamond Resorts' first managed property on Oahu.

According to a Diamond Resorts news release, the company intends to make several enhancements to the resort, including opening a new sales center. The Modern Honolulu has also commenced a search to re-launch its signature restaurant.  

In October of 2016, The Modern Honolulu announced that famous chef Masaharu Morimoto was closing his restaurant at the hotel after six years. Diamond Resorts, according to the news release, also intends to commence a repositioning plan to gradually convert guest rooms into larger suites.

The hotel currently has 353 rooms and suites with ocean, city, pool and yacht harbor views. Also, many of the rooms come with furnished terraces. The Modern Honolulu also includes a spa and two swimming pools. In addition, guests have immediate access to Waikiki Beach, and shopping and dining on the popular Kalakaua Avenue and at the Ala Moana Center.

Who to Pitch to

In an interview conducted with Jack Richards toward the end of 2017, the president and CEO of Pleasant Holidays told Travel Agent The Modern Honolulu is becoming a hot spot for bachelor and bachelorette parties, mainly because of the location and its “array of gathering spaces.”

Corporate clients also should not be ignored as the hotel includes more than 20,000 square feet of meeting space, including a 9,200-square-foot ballroom, as well as outdoor venues overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
