The expansive resort grounds include three distinct accommodations: the Ocean Tower, the Pacific Tower and the Diamond Head Tower – a five-story oceanfront building that will be converted into 23 brand-new, spacious rooms / deluxe suites, raising the key count to 658. A footpath called the ‘Ae Kai, runs the length of the resort and connects the property elements in harmonious balance.
The property also has a few dozen larger rooms with three double-beds, ideal for travelling families and friends.
Food and beverage offerings includes the certified Ocean-Friendly restaurant boasts a fresh menu and signature cocktails with locally sourced spirits.
