Holiday Inn Resort Waikiki Beachcomber will transition to Waikiki Beachcomber by Outrigger® in February 2018

Outrigger Hotels and Resorts today announced plans to amplify its presence in Hawaii with the changeover of its owned and managed 496-key Holiday Inn Resort Waikiki Beachcomber to an Outrigger-branded property. As of Feb. 1, 2018, the property will operate as Waikiki Beachcomber by Outrigger with extensive $25 million renovations anticipated for completion in summer 2018.

Celebrating its 70th anniversary this year, the transition highlights Outrigger's commitment to increasing and enhancing its brand portfolio, which now includes nine premium beachfront resorts in Hawaii, Fiji, Thailand, Guam, Mauritius and the Maldives – alongside 28 owned and/or managed hotels, resorts and vacation condominiums.

"Waikiki Beachcomber by Outrigger will be an upscale, urban oasis with a modern Hawaiiana elegance that is inspired by the hotel's ocean views and surrounding natural environment," said Scott Dalecio, president and chief executive officer of Outrigger Hotels and Resorts. "This reinvestment is the first of many exciting capital projects to come and part of our larger strategy to ensure sustainable growth for Outrigger's authentic and iconic brand."

Situated steps from Waikiki Beach and adjacent to the reimagined International Market Place, Waikiki Beachcomber by Outrigger will undergo impressive enhancements to elevate the property from an upper-midscale-level hotel to an upscale-tier property.

Incorporating contemporary Hawaiian-inspired design, complete renovations to the guest rooms, pool deck and public spaces – including the lobby, corridors, elevator and hotel exterior – will usher in a new chapter of this cosmopolitan retreat. The award-winning team from Hart Howerton has been retained as the project architects from concept to completion, with luxury interior-design firm SFA Design steering the timeless, coastal decor. Guest rooms will draw in the calming deep-teal hues of the Pacific Ocean with accents of marigold found in local flora. Sophisticated use of texture throughout the hotel interior – from Hawaiian tapa designs, carved-wood insertions and intricate rope art – will provide a unique, well-appointed ambiance and island sense of place.

Alongside the aesthetic update and enhanced arrival experience, the hotel will feature the latest in-room technology and embrace contemporary environmental considerations. An all-new meeting space will also be added, ideal for professionals and groups working in paradise. Renovations will be completed in phases for minimal guest disruption.

Enhancements to Waikiki Beachcomber by Outrigger will further complement the hotel's new dining hotspots Maui Brewing Co. and Hawaiian Aroma Caffe. Located in the heart of Waikiki, the hotel's prime positioning provides travellers the luxury of city offerings paired with the nearby white-sand beaches. The Beachcomber was originally built in 1970 and is remembered for its showroom where legendary Hawaii entertainers performed frequently – including the late Don Ho, who often sang his quintessential, universally loved tune "Tiny Bubbles."
