Introducing Wākea Waikiki Beach, Oahu's renowned Forbes 5-star destination, now proudly partnered with Hilton's distinguished luxury brand, LXR Hotels & Resorts, which is known for its hand-picked collection of independent and spirited luxury properties, celebrating the timeless pursuit of personal adventure.
The hotel's new name draws inspiration from the Hawaiian story of Wākea, the Sky Father, and speaks to the place where the sky touches the earth symbolizing a commitment to reaching higher in their pursuit of aloha, hospitality, and excellence.
This marks a fresh beginning for the hotel as it moves forward from its previous association and embraces the values of LXR Hotel & Resorts. A significant renovation project, masterfully designed by Bryan O'Sullivan Studios based in London and NYC, will commence in late 2024, with an expected completion date of late 2025. As part of the Hilton family, this new alliance offers an elevated international reputation, and strong corporate support reinforcing Wākea Waikiki Beach's position among the world's premier hotel brands.
