Props to Aqua Hotels and Terry Dowsett from the Ilikai Hotel
The Aqua Ilikai & Suites new manager, Terry Dowsett has had the property for awhile and you can see the transformation. His touches are most recently seen in the lobby where they have beautiful aqua sconces and the greeting area has a new boutique feel which includes a flat screen TV showing re-runs of Hawaii Five-0 episodes.
Terry also shared with me that one of the owners at the property, a retired horticulturist actually takes care of the plants in the lobby and common areas throughout the property. A lot of attention to detail is taking place all over the property and I love it!!.
The Hotel consists of the 4 highest floors in the building. You can get rooms on the harbor side or the lagoon side, the harbor side has a more open view of the pacific, the lagoon view looks toward the Hilton. The Rooms are spacious, in fact, I would say these are the largest rooms in Waikiki certainly for the money at almost 500 square feet!
Return to Waikiki
This new show celebrates the incredible story of how Hawaiian music came to be, from its pre-Western contact roots of Hula Kahiko to the Hawaiian music renaissance of the 1970s and beyond. A vaudevillian-style presentation combines masterful musicianship, comedy, theatrics, dance and storytelling to entertain, inspire and enlighten the audience to this rarely told tale. Just steps from most hotels in Waikiki, this luau set under the canopies of banyan and palms trees in the heart of Waikiki will take you back to the spirit of the grand luaus and entertainment of the 1940s and 1950s.
Master slack key guitarist Makana showcases traditional and contemporary Hawaiian entertainment in a sophisticated production that pays tribute to Waikiki’s past and present. For more information give us a call at 1-800-843-8771
