Aqua Hospitality, an operating business of Interval Leisure Group (Nasdaq: IILG), announced the addition of the Ohia Waikiki to its Waikiki management portfolio effective June 2015. Located in the heart of Waikiki, the 17-story, 251-room Ohia Waikiki – formerly known as the Outrigger Surf East – is currently undergoing a $2-million refresh.
With cheerful colors and tropical design cues, the accommodations range from hotel rooms to studios and junior suites, each with a private lanai and kitchenette with a four-burner stove and oven. Amenities include a 24-hour restaurant, a comfortable lobby seating area with a flat-screen TV, swimming pool, sundeck, and bike and surfboard racks. The hotel will undergo a full renovation in the next few years, with plans to elevate the property to a three-star+ hotel.
“We are always looking to expand our portfolio to provide a wide variety of options to our loyal and new customers,” said Matt Bailey, president and chief operating officer, Aqua Hospitality. “Ohia Waikiki is not only a great option for budget-conscious travelers coming to Oahu, but it also offers much sought-after accommodations with kitchenettes in Waikiki.”
The hotel is located at 2280 Kuhio Avenue, just two blocks to the world-famous Waikiki Beach, and is within walking distance to the area’s best shops, restaurants and entertainment. For more information and to book, visit www.ohiahotel.com or call 808.441.7783.
