THE RITZ-CARLTON RESIDENCES, WAIKIKI BEACH
383 Kalaimoku Street, Honolulu

OUR Thoughts on The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Waikiki Beach
The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Waikiki Beach comprises two high towers, the Ewa Tower completed in 2016 and the new Diamond Head Tower completed in 2018. Each spacious Residence faces south towards Waikiki from the resort’s grandstand position right in the centre of greater Waikiki, which is very much the up-and-coming part of Waikiki and home to many new and recently refurbished resorts.  The outlook is generally over the open parklands of Ainahau Triangle and Fort Derussy Beach Park towards the ocean.  Staying here you are only a short walk down to Kalakaua Avenue from where you can either walk along Kalakaua Avenue into the centre of Waikiki or cross Kalakaua Avenue and take either Saratoga Avenue or Beach Walk straight down to Waikiki Beach.

There is an accommodation choice between open-plan Studios and One, Two and Three Bedroom residences – all with either a kitchenette or full kitchen, and all include a clothes washer and dryer.  The prices rise the further you are located up the two tower buildings – the higher floors provide amazing views, but you are by no means short-changed should you choose one of the lower floors in this beautiful complex. 

Several of Our Specialists have recently visited the Ritz-Carlton Residences, Waikiki beach and reported:

“The Ritz-Carlton is beautiful!   It is not all that far from the centre of Waikiki, (it took us less than 15 minutes to walk there from the Hilton Garden Inn) and everything is lovely, new and modern.

You can feel the grandness of the hotel from the moment you walk into the Porte Cochere. The reception is on the 7th floor.

We loved the infinity pool with its stunning views. The sun-lounge/bar area adjacent to the pool is like a roof top bar in New York with its couches and fire-pits and watching the sunset from there is amazing. You can also see the fireworks from the Hilton Hawaiian Village on a Friday night. 

The individual residences are incredible, very new and spacious. Very much an upmarket product, ideal for couples, two or three couples travelling together and families seeking a quieter location in busy Waikiki - it’s also a great choice for those looking to stay a little longer in Waikiki.”

You will love the space of not only the studios and suites but also the space in the public areas at The Ritz-Carlton Residences, you’ll also love the newness and freshness of everything this place has to offer.  If you are in the market for a 5-star self-catering option in Waikiki, this could well be the perfect place for your holiday base.

What The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Waikiki Beach Say About Themselves

"The new Ritz-Carlton features twin infinity pools, Waikiki’s highest, and two acres of lushly landscaped parks and gardens.  Tropical greenery surrounds guests, even on the seventh floor, where the lobby opens to the sky and a commanding vista of the Pacific Ocean.  Here, the aesthetic of Jon Bent Design achieves timeless elegance in a marriage of vintage and modern, art and organic finishes; an Hermes-inspired front desk wrapped in leather, a dramatic blue-green backdrop of polished Brazilian marble, the twining metallic curves of a Scandinavian ceiling sculpture adding sophisticated whimsy – an airy focal point that ties the elements together.

The fresh, serene aesthetic of understated elegance extends to the residences.  On the Deluxe Level, seafoam greens and sandy hues lead the eye out to intimate lanais and the curving blue horizon.  Grand Level residences feature hardwood floors and rejuvenating palettes of earth, sky and sea tones; wraparound lanais take in the vast sweep of O’ahu’s south shoreline. On the uppermost floors, architecture and interior design combine in clean, striking lines that accentuate a sense of space in the large Premier Level residences.  Finishes including cerused oak hardwood floors, marble bathrooms walls and countertops and lacquered sycamore millwork ground these residences with a luxurious organic sensibility, while contemporary hues set off breathtaking views from Diamond Head to sunsets behind the Wai’anae mountains.

Mountains and sea, city and nature, timeless and contemporary.  All the gateway to a world-class destination.  The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Waikiki Beach rises to a new horizon of elegance.”

This resort is handily located to the major TheBus routes to and from Ala Moana Shopping Centre (The Bus takes around 10-minutes to whisk you to Ala Moana) and downtown Waikiki but being so central to all Waikiki destinations means walking is a very good option when staying here.

On a recent visit to inspect The Ritz-Carlton, we walked from there into Waikiki and noted the following times to walk to these destinations:
Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort via Saratoga Road 6 minutes, via Beach Walk 7 minutes
The International Market Place (the centre of Waikiki) – 9 minutes
Hilton Hawaiian Village – 11 minutes.
