Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa

South Korea's Mirae Asset investment company may purchase the Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa in Honolulu. If the deal goes through, it could reach as much as $800 million.

The company is one of Asia’s largest financial services firms, and previously acquired the Fairmont Orchid hotel on Hawaii Island for $200 million last May. 

In 2013, New York's Blackstone Group bought the leasehold interest in the 1,230-room Waikiki hotel for $450 million. In 2008, Goldman Sachs’ Whitehall Street Real Estate Funds, partnered with Hyatt Hotels Corp., purchased the hotel from its bankrupt Japanese owners for $410 million.
