LXR Hotels and Resorts Enters Oahu with Ka La’i Waikīkī Beach

HONOLULU, Hawaii — Hilton recently opened Ka Laʻi Waikiki Beach, LXR Hotels and Resorts, marking the luxury brand’s first property in Oahu. Located in the center of Waikīkī, Honolulu, the 462-room hotel launches a new chapter for the brand with world-class amenities, immersive destination-driven programming and personalized service.

Establishing a presence in Hawaii, LXR Hotels and Resorts welcomes Ka La’i Waikiki Beach to its exclusive collection in sought-after destinations around the globe. Ka La’i Waikiki Beach is owned by Irongate and managed by LXR Hotels & Resorts.

Unparalleled Hospitality in Premier Destination

Situated above Fort DeRussy Park, with expansive views of the Pacific Ocean and Diamond Head, Ka La’i Waikiki Beach is just steps from Waikiki Beach and surrounded by restaurants, shopping, entertainment and nightlife. Ka La’i Waikiki Beach spans 38 stories and features residential-style guest rooms and suites, a wellness facility and 24-hour fitness center, an infinity pool with sun deck, five indoor and outdoor venues and event spaces, and two signature restaurants. Next year, the property will begin an interior architecture and design renovation led by the award-winning Bryan O’Sullivan Studio (BOS Studio).

“We’re thrilled to expand our portfolio in this fabulous and vibrant destination with the debut of Ka Laʻi Waikiki Beach,” said Danny Hughes, president, Americas, Hilton. “Hawaii has played an important role in Hilton’s history ever since Conrad Hilton purchased one of our most renowned hotels, Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort, more than 60 years ago. We’re delighted to build upon Conrad’s vision with our first LXR Hotels and Resorts in the state, and we look forward to offering our guests another incredible location to experience the best of Honolulu and Hawaiian culture.”

Inspired Design by Bryan O’Sullivan Studio

Ka La’i Waikiki Beach is set for a comprehensive interior architecture and design renovation led by Bryan O’Sullivan Studio ahead of the building’s 15th anniversary.

Scheduled to begin in early 2025 and planned in phases over several months, the renovation will encompass upgrades to guest rooms and suites, as well as public areas, including lobbies, pool areas, spa, fitness center, landscaping and interiors. In addition, the property’s signature restaurants will be reconceptualized, and the destination restaurant on the ground floor will soon be home to an internationally acclaimed restaurateur and chef.

The design will integrate elements such as stained glass laylights and traditional carving techniques resulting in a setting that pays homage to the building’s rich history, nature, and local materials. The design will feature a bespoke furniture collection crafted for Ka La’i Waikiki Beach, along with updates aimed at modernizing the building systems.
