Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort US$80 transformation

February 24, 2021 Hotel Deals No Comments Email Email

Outrigger Hospitality Group has announced a grand new voyage – an US$80 million transformation of the brand’s flagship property, Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort

<>, located directly on the golden sands of world-famous Waikīkī Beach.

The investment will transform the resort into a contemporary beachfront retreat, rooted in Hawaiian culture. With a focus on wellness and unmatched hospitality, sophisticated property enhancements include upscale residential-style rooms and suites, chic poolside experiences and a fully reimagined Kani Ka Pila Grille and stage – the home of Hawaiian music.

“As a premier beach resort brand, we charted a strategic course to enhance Outrigger’s current portfolio and deliver exceptional, authentic experiences for the global traveler,” said Jeff Wagoner, president and CEO of Outrigger Hospitality Group. “The US$80 million investment at our flagship Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort infuses fresh energy and elegance into this iconic destination that was historically a place of healing and rejuvenation for Hawaiian royalty.”

At the project’s creative helm is Hart Howerton, an award-winning firm of architects and designers renowned for thoughtful and innovative work in extraordinary spaces. With input from esteemed Hawaiian cultural practitioners, the architects seamlessly merged the unique splendor of Hawai‘i’s past with today’s  contemporary comforts. From the impressive canoe-hale arrival experience lit by traditional fishing-basket lanterns to the artfully appointed accommodations, the resort design emulates an elegant Hawai‘i beach house, warmly welcoming guests home.

Expansive resort grounds include three distinct accommodations: the Ocean Tower, the Pacific Tower and the Diamond Head Tower – a five-story oceanfront building that will be converted into 23 brand-new, spacious rooms/deluxe suites, raising the key count to 658. A strategic footpath called the ‘Ae Kai, runs the length of the resort and connects the property elements in harmonious balance.

A novel “Grand Navigator Experience” at the property links a collection of penthouse suites atop the Pacific Tower that are named in honor of Hawai‘i’s esteemed Pwo Navigators. Travelers can book a single suite or, for a truly remarkable stay, reserve the entire 18th floor. The property also has a few dozen larger rooms with three double-beds, ideal for traveling families and friends.

For a worry-free stay in paradise, the property abides by Outrigger’s Clean Commitment – an enhanced safety platform developed with Ecolab, the global leader in hospitality sanitation that incorporates state-of-the-art technology, cleaning products and procedures.

The transformed resort plans to again welcome guests beginning late-April 2021. To book a stay in the all-new rooms and suites, visit<> or contact your local travel agent.
