Waikiki Beach Marriott Resort & Spa announced the completion of its multimillion-dollar comprehensive renovation. Spanning 5.2 acres and overlooking Waikiki Beach, the beachfront resort features 1,310 refreshed guestrooms and suites, modernized open-air Nanea Lobby, Royal Kaila Spa, and a new one-acre Queensbreak pool and amenity deck (shown) including two pools and a spectacular new open-air restaurant concept.
Set in two towers, each of the 1,310 refreshed guest rooms has a refreshed look conceived by interior design firm CRA Architecture with floor-to-ceiling windows and a private open-air balcony (lanai) that showcases the island’s natural beauty with views of the Pacific Ocean, mountains, or Diamond Head. CRA interior designer Bianca Yih was inspired by the white sands, bohemian lifestyle, and surf culture of the Waikiki Beach Boys, who welcome guests to Oahu with a spirit of hospitality and aloha. Ship lap-painted wood panels and warm ceruse wood stains throughout the guestrooms’ millwork and furniture bring a casual feel of a welcoming Hawaiian home with dimensional sea-inspired art pieces located above the bed that pay homage to Waikiki’s reef. Other subtle nods to Beach Boy lifestyle include coral-colored accent pillows and rope-woven details, which help create a unique sense of place and time.
