Outrigger Hotels and Resorts announces the newest addition to its brand portfolio with a soft opening of Waikiki Beachcomber by Outrigger Feb. 1, 2018. A traditional Hawaiian blessing will mark the transition of the former Holiday Inn resort to the Outrigger-branded property.

An extensive $25 million hotel renovation will follow – including all-new guest rooms and meeting spaces, revamped lobby and much more – presenting guests with a modern, urban oasis in the heart of Waikiki. Projected for completion in late summer 2018, the phased renovation schedule is designed specifically to minimize guest disruption.

Situated steps from Waikiki Beach and adjacent to the reimagined International Market Place, Waikiki Beachcomber by Outrigger is home to some of Hawaii’s dining hotspots including Maui Brewing Co. and Hawaiian Aroma Caffe, where visitors and locals alike enjoy poolside service in a family-friendly environment.

“Waikiki Beachcomber by Outrigger is an excellent value for guests looking to experience Outrigger’s iconic Hawaiian hospitality and take advantage of the resort’s modern accommodations and easygoing beach vibe,” said Alan Naito, general manager of Waikiki Beachcomber by Outrigger.

“The new guest room design is spectacular; with renovations starting at the top floors first – we look forward to soon having this fresh inventory to share with our guests.”

Located in the heart of Waikiki, the hotel’s prime positioning on Kalakaua Avenue provides travellers the luxury of city offerings paired with the nearby white-sand beaches.

The enhancements to the Waikiki Beachcomber by Outrigger include incorporating contemporary Hawaiian-inspired design and a complete revamp to the guest rooms, pool deck and public spaces, including the lobby, corridors, elevator and hotel exterior.
