Hilton Waikoloa Village, the 62-acre Pacific playground located on the Kohala Coast of Hawaii, unveiled a $15-million renovation to the 245 Lagoon Tower guestrooms and main lobby. The newly-transformed lobby features plush furnishings and seating areas and the guestrooms boast a natural interior palette with island-inspired design elements among other exclusive upgrades.
Drawing inspiration from the Hawaiian Islands, the transformed Lagoon Tower rooms feature upgrades to the bathrooms, linens and furnishings. The carpet inset has images of Naupaka in colors of lavender, white and beige. New hardware along with a crystalline stone countertop were added to the bathrooms.
Beyond the room enhancements, half of the tower continues to offer dolphin lagoon and oceanfront views of the Pacific Ocean, while other views take in Mauna Kea and Hualalai Mountains or Waiulua Bay.
The renovated main lobby features a new design complemented by culturally inspired fixtures and hues of tan, purple and gold. Decorated with custom furnishings and a chandelier (or piko design) representing continuity, the main lobby links the design to the Hawaiian concept of Pikowaena, or a place of gathering. The lights that hang from the piko represent the generations of the past, present and future.
In addition to the placement of a whirlpool bathtub and sauna, cast art glass and mother of pearl accents have been added in the master bedroom. Also added were woven headboard flanked by capiz shell wall sconces.
The lobby and guestroom transformation complement last yearʼs $1-million renovation to the Naupaka and Naiʼa suites. The renovation is part of a larger scope of major projects by individual hotels above standard annual capital expenditures across the global portfolio of Hilton Hotels & Resorts, the flagship brand of Hilton Worldwide. Since 2011, the projects have represented an investment of more than $3 billion at hotels worldwide.
