Works by artists with strong connections to Hawaii hang in each
of its 463 refreshed guest rooms,
exclusively native foliage now grows
around the 10,000-square-foot,
three-level pool, and a new smoothie
shop, Kai Café, offers an array of locally sourced treats. But the property's history of sustainability dates
back to its origin. Just before the
hotel opened its doors in 1992, management discovered a nearby wahi
pana (sacred site), now known as the
Honokahua Preservation Site, which
inspired a campaign to prioritize and
preserve other aspects of Hawaiian
heritage. The hotel's longtime cultural advisor Clifford Nae'ole ensures
the resort's accurate and genuine
representation of and involvement
with Hawaiian culture and people.
Every April, the Celebration of the
Arts Festival, which Nae'ole cofounded, shines as an event that highlights
local rituals, food, art, and customs.
Guests also engage year-round
with Aloha E Ka La, a nightly sunset
ceremony in the lobby, and weekly
Sense of Place presentations on
Hawaii's history and future. Doubles
from $750, including breakfast daily
and a $100 hotel credit.
