This landmark hotel that is the essence of Hawaii reopened in February 1947 following a careful renovation and additions by the WATG team that made this property an international destination of unparalleled romance and luxury.

On the site of the former playground of King Kamehameha I and Queen Kaahumanu’s Summer Palace, something inspirational was created in a Spanish-Moorish style with Royalty in mind.
