Alohilani Resort Waikiki Beach is set to splash onto the Honolulu hotel scene this fall on the site of the current Pacific Beach Hotel, which is currently undergoing a $115 million redevelopment. The modern resort now features a new island-inspired design from the NYC-based design firm Rockwell Group across all 839 guest rooms and suites, and in the future, will boast a pool deck with a saltwater infinity pool, floating cabanas, tiered day beds, fire pits, pool bar, ocean views and a breathtaking lobby with a 280,000-gallon saltwater oceanarium featuring more than 1,000 marine animals.
The resort will also include two Asian restaurants and a tropical beer garden from celebrity chef Masaharu Morimoto. Located on the second floor, Morimoto Asia Waikiki will serve as the signature restaurant of Alohilani Resort Waikiki Beach and feature chef Masaharu Morimoto’s renowned cuisine, which incorporates Western and traditional Asian ingredients, such as sticky ribs, Morimoto-style lo mein and Korean kalbi. The indoor-outdoor dining space will offer a dynamic bar and adjacent outdoor lanais with views over Waikiki Beach. Meanwhile, Momosan Waikiki will be a casual ramen dining experience featuring signature Morimoto sake and beer served indoors or in a tropically landscaped beer garden with communal tables.
Guests can experience the redesigned guestrooms and suites in the two towers ahead of the official grand opening. For more information, visit pacificbeachhotel.com/transformation.
