The open-air lobby features tropical “jungle walls”, rattan cage light fixtures housing paper bird sculptures of species native to Hawaii, and geometric shaped furnishings mixed with bold colors and natural materials. Guests can lounge on a 14-foot long sofa and modern yellow wingback chairs. blue metal end tables and Acacia wood cocktail tables complete the setting.
The hotel boasts playful and laid back local influence throughout, with pops of color, artwork, and original pieces – tropical wallpaper and multi-colored floors with fluorescent kinetic hallways lead to the decorated rooms.
The rooftop pool deck includes one-of-a-kind neon wall murals painted by California based artist DJ Neff and vibrant mood lighting for a colorful poolside experience with sweeping city and Waikiki Beach views.
