DESIGN360unlimited redesigns former Waikiki Trade Center

Hyatt Centric Waikiki Beach boasts contemporary Hawaiian design.

Hyatt Centric Waikiki Beach is scheduled to open this December in the former Waikiki Trade Center. Located along Waikiki’s Kuhio corridor, the property—designed by DESIGN360unlimited—will have a beach-inspired aesthetic in its 230 guestrooms and suites.

The lobby has a six-foot-tall custom green sculpture resembling circular drift wood with local vegetation adorning the piece. This is set against an accent wall resembling rough lava. The property’s corridors have clean and simple lines and soft blue ombré wallcoverings to evoke the sky and sea.

Similarly, the color scheme of the guestrooms will focus on blue and green to further bring the ocean and sky indoors. There will be floor-to-ceiling windows with views of Waikiki.
