HONOLULU, Oahu, Hawaii
Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group announced its intention to open a new luxury hotel and branded residences in Honolulu on the Hawaiian island of Oahu. The project, which has a target opening date in early 2020, will enable Mandarin Oriental to introduce its brand of luxury hospitality to the destination.
Mandarin Oriental, Honolulu will be the anchor of Mana'olana Place, a 36-story mixed-use tower with gardens and public plazas, currently being developed by Los Angeles-based Salem Partners. Located in the heart of the Ala Moana district, the hotel is a short walk to Waikiki Beach and Ala Moana Beach.
It will also be adjacent to the Hawaii Convention Center and the Ala Moana Center.
The hotel's 125 contemporary guest rooms and suites will be designed to reflect the Hawaiian culture, together with features inspired by Mandarin Oriental's oriental heritage. The Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group will also manage 107 Residences at Mandarin Oriental, located on the Mana'olana tower's upper floors.
Mandarin Oriental, Honolulu will feature a rooftop restaurant and bar with landscaped outdoor terraces, providing views of Diamond Head, Ala Moana Beach and Downtown Honolulu. There will also be a lobby lounge, an all-day dining restaurant and extensive banqueting and meeting spaces with terrace and garden views.
The Spa at Mandarin Oriental will offer holistic rejuvenation and relaxation across eight treatment rooms. Further leisure options include a comprehensive fitness centre and an outdoor swimming pool.
"We are delighted with this opportunity to open a hotel in Honolulu and look forward to bringing Mandarin Oriental's legendary hospitality back to Hawaii," said James Riley, Group Chief Executive of Mandarin Oriental. "This new development will be a welcome addition to the brand's expansion around the world.”
