Formerly Holiday Inn Resort Waikiki Beachcomber
Kalakaua Avenue, Waikiki, Oahu, Hawaii

16 July 2018
                     Extensive Upgrading Announced
The Resort is undergoing an extensive $25 million renovation until 31 March 2019.
See below for full details

Property Modernisation Update
16 July 2018. The Resort advises:
"Exciting property enhancements will be underway from June through 21 December 2018

We are pleased to share that Waikiki Beachcomber by Outrigger will undergo a property modernization project starting this June that will result in an enhanced, upscale guest experience in the heart of Waikiki.

Rest assured – every consideration has been made for guests staying on property during this time to ensure that they are minimally impacted as we embark on this exciting transformation.  

By the end of October, we project that the guest room product will be 100% finished – offering a calming, residential feel inspired by the hotel’s ocean views and natural environment. Starting at the top, guest rooms will be revamped floor-by-floor with a buffer floor in between for minimal noise and an uninterrupted stay.

The wildly popular on-property Maui Brewing Co. and Hawaiian Aroma Caffe will remain open throughout – serving artesian coffee and light bites in a chic poolside café and award-winning Maui-brewed craft beer with impeccably fresh island-inspired eats from morning to night. The spellbinding Magic of Polynesia dinner show will also continue its nightly performance schedule.

While the pool is being serviced, guests will have access to pools at our neighboring Outrigger properties. A special welcome amenity will be given to each guest upon check-in to enjoy and kickoff their stay in the center of it all.

Key Dates
Guest Rooms:   June 01 - November 08, 2018
Public Area:      July 10 2018 - 31 March 2019
Pool Area:         July 21 2018 - 31 March, 2019 

Limited-time offer rates will be available during this property modernization period."

Update as at 09 February 2019
The Resort advises that all guests are now enjoying the fully renovated rooms and that the last of the renovation work will be completed on time for guests to enjoy from 01 April 2019.  The areas included are:
The Pool Deck
Exterior/Arrivals Area
New Lobby Market Experience.
We have viewed this property recently and are thrilled with the changes and upgrades that have been put in place.

Our thoughts on Waikiki Beachcomber by Outrigger
Waikiki Beachcomber by Outrigger is a good mid-range hotel in a fantastic location right in the centre of the holiday action on the city side of Kalakaua Avenue.  Waikiki Beach is just over the road out front of the beachfront resorts on the opposite side of Kalakaua Avenue.  Accessing the beach is easy – just take the lane between the Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach and the Royal Hawaiian or better still, wander through the hotel lobbies of the beachside resorts. Waikiki Beachcomber by Outrigger is almost surrounded on two sides by the International Market Place, which has recently been completely redeveloped. The marketplace and Duke’s Lane (which runs beside the resort) give easy access to all the shops and restaurants on Kuhio Avenue.  Kuhio Avenue is the main access road for TheBus and many of the Waikiki Trolley routes, so not only do you have close beach access you are absolutely surrounded by every service imaginable in the heart of Waikiki. Macey’s Department Store is on the ground floor of Waikiki Beachcomber by Outrigger.

Because it’s an Outrigger property, you can be assured that the rooms will be spotless and comfortable and that the service will be friendly, courteous and helpful without being pushy.  The hotel was completely refurbished in 2008 and is undergoiong another major improvement program in the second half of 2018. The Resort’s new JBABC Restaurant has now opened on the Lobby level and is proving popular with a good range of light meals as well as great mains. The former famous Waikiki hotspot, “Jimmy Buffets at The Waikiki Beachcomber” and the Surf Museum were closed as at the end of February 2016 for a big refurbishment and this area has been converted and now open as the first "Maui Brewing Company" outlet in Oahu. Maui Brewing Company at Waikiki Beachcomber by Outrigger is open for breakfast lunch and dinner.

Maui Brewing Company was founded by Garrett and Melanie Marrero in 2005 when it began its quest to brew handcrafted ales and lagers using the finest ingredients.  Its vision; to support local agriculture and care for the environment, includes sourcing as many local products as possible and packing in the most eco-friendly materials – the can.  The company also donates its spent grain to local farmers for feed and compost.  Maui Brewing Co. is Hawaii’s largest authentic craft brewer and currently operates a brewery and tasting room in Kihei and a brewpub restaurant in Lahaina on Maui.

This resort is surrounded by dozens of dining options on both Kalakaua and Kuhio Avenues and all the streets and lanes between so you are spoilt for choice for places to eat.  We reckon you could stay for a month and still not manage to experience them all.  For convenience, there is a large ABC shop nearby and the retail outlets in the Royal Hawaiian Centre are right across the road.  The Cheesecake Factory is also across the road and we are always amazed that customers still queue up to dine at this outlet even though it has been operating for quite a few years now!
