US: Waikiki Beachcomber to become Outrigger-branded property

Outrigger Hotels and Resorts has announced the changeover of its owned and managed 496-guest room Holiday Inn Resort Waikiki Beachcomber to an Outrigger-branded property.

From the beginning of February 2018, the hotel will operate as Waikiki Beachcomber by Outrigger with $25 million renovations set for completion in summer 2018.

The change is part of Outrigger's wider goal of growing its grand portfolio, which now includes nine beachfront resorts in Hawaii, Fiji, Thailand, Guam, Mauritius and the Maldives alongside 28 owned or managed hotels.

Scott Dalecio, president and chief executive officer of Outrigger Hotels and Resorts said: "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. 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."

The property will undergo renovations to the guest rooms, pool deck and public spaces. Hart Howerton will manage the project from planing to competition, bringing to life Outrigger's vision for cosmopolitan and Hawaiian-inspired design concept.

The Beachcomber was originally built in 1970 and is famed for its showroom, where Hawaiian entertainers performed frequently. They including the late Don Ho.
