Anthony Laurino introduces natural elements in Coconut Waikiki Hotel’s refresh

Upon completion of the refresh, the 81 guestrooms will have colorful and contemporary elements.

Coconut Waikiki Hotel is undergoing a renovation that is scheduled for completion on January 1. San Francisco-based designer Anthony Laurino is overseeing the hotel’s makeover.

Laurino also designed sister property Shoreline Hotel Waikiki, with both properties managed by Filament Hospitality. Shoreline Hotel Waikiki recently debuted an “Essential Oils” lobby bar.

For Coconut Waikiki Hotel, Laurino drew inspiration from natural elements. Upon completion of the refresh, the 81 guestrooms will have new artwork, bedding and neutral color schemes with "splashes" of bold colors, layered with natural textures and organic patterned fabrics. The rooms will also use natural woods to maintain a sense of place.
