Hilton Waikoloa Village, located on the Kohala Coast of Hawaii’s Big Island, recently completed a $1 million renovation to its Naupaka and Nai’a suites.
The two luxury suites, which feature a two-story dolphin lagoon view, received the interior and exterior redesign by WATG. The renovation embodies the legend of Naupaka, an ancient Hawaiian princess who is said to await the return of her long lost love Kaui, while the color scheme is inspired by the Nai’a, meaning dolphin in Hawaiian.
The Naupaka and Nai’a suites greet guests with wood entry doors and a crystal chandelier in the foyer. The interior is comprised of wood floors with hand looped wool rugs, fabrics and artwork featuring celadon and aqua tones, and accessories and finishes with silver accents.
The suites now offer a master bathroom complete with a whirlpool bathtub and sauna, as well as a fully equipped kitchen with a stove, microwave, refrigerator and accessories.
In addition to the interior, the Naupaka and Nai’a suites received an outdoor installation of a private Jacuzzi, an exclusive dining area and new tile work.
