HONOLULU, HI-–Aqua-Aston Hospitality has announced that The Residences at Waikiki Beach Tower, located on Waikiki's iconic Kalakaua Avenue, is now open following an extensive multi-million-dollar transformation.
Previously known as Aston Waikiki Beach Tower, the oceanfront resort is just steps from the famous shoreline of Waikiki Beach. In addition to its sought-after location and incredible views over the beach, the city, and the volcanic edges of Diamond Head, The Residences offers guests a luxe, private-living experience with only four residences per floor.
Each 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom residence comes equipped with separate living and dining areas, a full kitchen, and a balcony with 180-degree beach views. An all-encompassing remodel of each residence was completed, including new flooring throughout; mango wood accents; island-living furniture; chef-inspired kitchens; and 4- and 5-piece, spa-like master bathrooms.
Millions were also invested in the public spaces, including an open-air recreation deck overlooking the beach from the 4th floor, complete with a new fitness center, motion studio, and shower facilities; a new sunset deck with fire pits, lounge seating and shaded cabanas; a jet spa and children’s pool; a new kitchen facility with an expanded dining area and barbeque grills; and a new air-conditioned Aloha Lounge, complete with ample seating, a supersized, ultra-high-definition flat screen television, and a Hawaii-themed book collection that will ignite your island wanderlust.
In addition to the facility improvements, guests can also look forward to higher-end services, delivered by a designated host. New guest amenities include arrangements for luxury airport transfers, in-room spa services, family services – like babysitting referrals and kid-friendly amenities – and guest experiences, like hula and ukulele lessons.
Upon opening, The Residences at Waikiki Beach Tower will join the ranks of Aqua-Aston Hospitality’s Instinct Collection brand, an elite group of standalone, independent hotels that deliver an upscale destination experience
