Honolulu has a new premium hotel on the horizon. Hawaii’s capital will soon be home to a new luxury hotel and branded residences from Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group. Set to open in 2020, the Mandarin Oriental, Honolulu will anchor the 36-story Mana’olana Place on Oahu.
The tower, located in the center of the Ala Moana district, is currently in development by Los Angeles-based Salem Partners. The property is within walking distance of Waikiki Beach, Ala Moana Beach and adjacent to both the Hawaii Convention Center and the Ala Moana Center for convenient access while on the island.
Designed by Colorado-based firm, [au]workshop, the hotel will have a traditional Hawaiian feel that emphasizes the indoor-outdoor concept of lanai and pays homage to the local culture. The property will include 125 guestrooms and suites as well as 107 Residences at Mandarin Oriental, located on the upper floors of Mana’olana Place.
Mandarin Oriental, Honolulu will feature a rooftop restaurant and bar with views of the beach, city and Diamond Head from its terraces. The Spa at Mandarin Oriental will offer holistic services with eight treatment rooms, while a fitness center and swimming pool will also be onsite for use at guests’ leisure. A lobby lounge, an all-day dining restaurant and event spaces will be available as well.
