Sunning with Nobility

Posted on July 13th, 2017 by Sabrina

The hotel formerly known as Hawaii Prince Hotel Waikiki has been reborn as the Prince Waikiki. The designers and architects that recently completed the $55.4M renovation are apparently obsessed with views, as you will also be if you are lucky enough to visit--given that the guestroom windows are floor to ceiling to show it all. Every single one of the more than 500 rooms have been upgraded and renewed using organic materials and neutral hues true to the location with roots deep in Hawaiian heritage that allow the spectacular vistas of the ocean, the harbors, and the lagoons to really shine.

Whether you are floating around in the swanky infinity pool, hanging around with your group in your newly upgraded room, challenging your personal best in the new sports facility, challenging the business world status quo in one of the upgraded or outdoor meeting spaces, or just chilling at the new bar; you will be afforded great views wherever you are wherever you look of either the ocean, the Ala Wai Small Boat Harbor, the Duke Kahanamoku Lagoon or the Ala Moana Beach Park.

For many locals and frequent visitors, this luxury Honolulu hotel has long been the iconic signature of Waikiki, and with the completion of the comprehensive and authentic property refresh, the Prince adds a newly artful and sophisticated presence for leisure and business travelers to one of the world’s already most favored destinations.

Along with its new face, the Prince features a new signature voice, in the spirit of lokomaika’i—which translated means “to share from within;” to staff it means it’s a personal commitment that every possible need and convenience is anticipated and accommodated to afford an “effortless stay” for guests.

While the Prince has a new face and voice, the hotel maintains its long-held persona as a place that is rich in life all around, teaming in the sea and occurring on the grounds. The healthy balance that is naturally managed of the nutrients from the sea and the island relentlessly transforming toxins to sustain the health of the location is one reason it remains an appealing mecca for local contemporary artists and their work, and today hosts and displays a fabulous collection of local contemporary art.

Insider tip: Ask for a Signature Lanai Suite and get ready to spend all week in your room. These suites feature a spacious balcony with an outdoor cabana and area for entertaining, all with cool breezes and mind-blowing views, of course.

Insider tip #2: Ask about the Prince Waikiki Club Rooms and Club Lounge on the highest floors of the hotel. Club dwellers can enjoy an exclusive sanctuary of comfort and relaxation in generously appointed rooms with sweeping views and tasty treats from the chef in the Club Lounge as well resident concierge services in the Club Levels. 

If you are a golfer, then you will be pleased to know that the golf course at the Prince was co-designed by the King—Arnold Palmer. Like everything else at the property, the course puts you in control, you can choose which of the 27 holes you put together in what order—effortlessly.

There are many ways to ensure you book the stay that is right for you and all that is available on the Prince Waikiki website, and a special amenity is available to Greatest Guests that find the Prince on greatesthotels.com.
