Outrigger Reef on the Beach – Waikiki2169 Kalia Road Oahu, HI
Guests at Outrigger Reef on the Beach experience true Hawaiian tradition from the moment they set foot in the recently restored resort. An ancient and rare koa-wood canoe graces the entryway, while the reception areaâ??s collection of Polynesian art immerses visitors in the islandâ??s rich cultural heritage. The resortâ??s customized, seated check-in process marks the first of many personal touches couples can expect throughout their stay.
Fresh from a $110 million transformation, the Outrigger Reef promises a number of delightful new amenities. Enlarged guestrooms and suites in the Ocean and Pacific towers include outdoor balconies, 32-inch flat-panel LCD televisions, alarm clocks with MP3 player, whirlpool baths (in the oceanfront suites), plus complimentary Internet and long-distance phone calls to North America. Original artwork by local photographer Glenn Poulain showcases Hawaiiâ??s stunning underwater landscape.
Whatâ??s more, new shops and restaurants, a sitting room and library, and the soothing Serenity Spa represent a selection of surprises in store at the revitalized Outrigger Reef.
Couples experience the warm Hawaiian hospitality while enjoying top-notch service. Curious types can learn to hula, play the ukulele and string flower leis. Local storytellers weave captivating tales while healers, historians, musicians and other experts share their knowledge with avid listeners.
Adventure seekers can ride the ocean in an outrigger canoe or skim the surface via catamaran. Many guests opt to spend the day poolside, basking in the sun. Nearby Kani Ka Pila Grille is the spot for a tasty bite paired with live music by legendary Hawaiian entertainers. Lovers in the mood for a romantic dinner can swap bites of crab-stuffed mahi mahi and Pulehu prime rib at the elegant, beachfront Ocean House Restaurant.
