    About

    Once a playground for international royalty, Hollywood elite, and heads of state, this legendary pink-hued retreat is ushering in a new era of Hawaiian-style luxury on Oahu’s golden Waikiki Beach with striking décor and unmatched service. Breathe in the salty air along an endless stretch of sand, or take sanctuary in a private beachfront cabana. The innovative Abhasa Spa soothes the soul, while Azure, the island's seafood mecca, delights the senses with fresh and innovative fare. Classic Hawaiian design pays homage to a majestic heritage, while contemporary appointments lend a subtle sleekness to 529 expertly furbished guestrooms and suites, each one aglow with the rays of the island sun streaming through open windows.
