Halekulani, Hawaii’s acclaimed luxury hotel, has set a new standard for innovative hospitality with the first-ever hotel suite installation of the outstanding Steinway & Sons Model M Architectural Speaker System. Halekulani partnered with Steinway Lyngdorf, designer and manufacturer of the world’s finest, high performance music and home theater systems, to perpetuate the Masterworks brand philosophy of the hotel and its new signature oasis, the Orchid Suite. The Orchid Suite, masterfully envisioned and designed to integrate Hawaii’s unparalleled environs with the suites’ casually elegant décor celebrating earth, sea and sky, opened in December 2008 as part of the Premier Suites at Halekulani.
“The Premier Suites at Halekulani celebrate superior accommodations, unparalleled guests experiences such as ‘Art in Motion’ and the ‘For You Everything Program’. With the addition of the Steinway & Sons Architectural Speaker System, the Orchid Suite offers the finest and most luxurious immersive residential suite available within the hospitality industry today,” said Peter Shaindlin, Chief Operating Officer of Halekulani Corporation. “Our collaboration with Steinway Lyngdorf is a reflection of Halekulani’s passion and commitment to the arts and the very best in sensorial luxury.”
First announced in September 2008, the Steinway & Sons Architectural Speaker Systems – Model M Series are flexible, dynamic speakers that provide a flawless acoustic experience. The Model M Series offers a range of on-wall, in-wall and in-ceiling speakers and boundary woofers that deliver extraordinary sound in combination with Steinway Lyngdorf’s proprietary fully digital amplification and advanced multi-channel RoomPerfect™ 3-D room adaptation technology. The Model M Speakers installed in the Orchid Suite feature 24 karat gold accents and were hand finished with black piano lacquer at the Steinway & Sons factory in Hamburg, Germany.
“The partnership with Halekulani was the ideal opportunity for Steinway Lyngdorf to install one of our premier home theaters into a setting truly worthy of its quality,” said Steinway Lyngdorf Founder Peter Lyngdorf. “The Orchid Suite at Halekulani embodies the finest accommodations in the world and the addition of the Steinway & Sons Model M unites the finest in hospitality with the leader in audio design.”
The Premier Suites at Halekulani, which consist of the Orchid Suite, the Royal Suite and the Vera Wang Suite, serve Halekulani guests’ myriad of lifestyles. Guests consider the iconic ‘House Befitting Heaven’ a second home, recognizing the hotel’s unparalleled accommodations, as well as the uniquely gracious and personalized service designed to cater to every whim.
Halekulani partnered with Vera Wang to design the iconic suite bearing her name, Maserati, Bentley and Lotus to create a luxury car program called “Art in Motion” and now partners with Steinway Lyngdorf to outfit the Orchid Suite with unmatched home theater technology and design. The Steinway & Sons Model M was masterfully orchestrated into the entertainment lounge of the Orchid Suite and expertly calibrated by Steinway Lyngdorf’s appointed local partner, Engineered Environments, to deliver the ultimate audio experience; all on the beach at Waikiki.
