Announcing Espacio, The Jewel Of Waikiki – Now Open

September 17, 2019 Hotel Deals No Comments Email Email

 ESPACIO, THE JEWEL OF WAIKIKI, poised to become Honolulu’s most exclusive oceanfront address, has now opened its doors following a US$50 million renovation.

With a prominent location, directly opposite the Duke Paoa Kahanamoku Statue at Waikiki Beach, the property fills a gap in the market for elite travellers seeking luxury in the heart of the sought-after destination. ESPACIO offers nine 2,250-square-foot multi-bedroom suites – each occupying an individual floor – and features rare amenities, ultra-exclusive personalised service and unprecedented privacy, rates from US$5,000 per night.

Each two- or three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom suite is individually appointed with rare, globally sourced works of art and dining room tables crafted from a whole marble slab imported from Carrara, Italy. Chandeliers and lighting accents handcrafted in Morocco are complemented by hand-knotted carpets of the highest grade. Handwoven organic cotton bedsheets from Japanese luxury textiler, Tenerita, adorn each bed, which also feature custom Stearns & Foster mattresses.

Each suite includes ocean-view balconies equipped with Jacuzzis, spa-like bathrooms with private dry-saunas and BVLGARI products, in addition to designer kitchens stocked with guests’ favourite snacks and beverages upon arrival. To ensure privacy is paramount, each suite is also equipped with discreet elevator entry.

In-room iPads control suite lighting, climate, and provide location-based technology for personal service requests and concierge recommendations. With no pre-set check in or check out times, ESPACIO gives guests the flexibility to arrive and depart suiting their travel plans. Other touches of opulence include access to a luxury fleet of cars and an in-suite, on-demand chef service.

At onsite dining concept Mugen (pronounced Moog-in), Chef Jason Yamaguchi’s Japanese-French menu comprises exquisitely presented meals sourced from the world’s finest purveyors, including daily seafood deliveries from Toyosu (Japan’s most famous fish market), local chai blossoms from a nearby micro farm, white winter truffles from Europe, black summer truffles from Oregon, and caviar and asparagus from Denmark. The new restaurant concept offers discerning diners artfully presented fusions such as house made saffron-poached lobster with crushed fingerlings, local ono and Kauai prawns and Parisian gnocchi with Uni. An expertly cultivated beverage program includes a 500-bottle wine collection valued at over US$5 million dollars, rare Japanese whiskies and high-end sakes.

The public areas of ESPACIO redefine the traditional luxury currently offered in Waikiki. The rooftop jacuzzi, infinity pool and poolside beverage service afford what are arguably the best views in Hawaii. The onsite, full-service spa pampers guests with intention-centred treatments delivered in an intimate environment that draws inspiration from the rich traditions and breathtaking beauty of the Hawaiian Islands, a place deeply rooted in the Polynesian culture and natural abundance.

ESPACIO is the latest addition to Aqua-Aston Hospitality, a destination expert managed in Australia and New Zealand by Linkd Tourism, with a 70-year legacy, currently servicing 40 properties across the Hawaii islands, continental U.S., and Costa Rica.
