Eye-Opening Discoveries at Ward Village

Ward Village is a destination and community concept that is surprising in its diverse offerings. The master planned community, which was named “Best-Planned Community in the United States” by Architectural Digest in 2017 and awarded “2018 Master Planned Community of the Year” by the National Association of Home Builders, also has a focus on balanced living.



There are countless ways to take advantage of the neighborhood and surrounding areas of Ala Moana and Kaka‘ako. Discover a wide variety of local boutiques and flavors—think unique vegan taro-based doughnuts from Holey Grail Donuts and dinner on the terrace at Merriman’s, and of course the 72,000-foot Whole Foods Market (the largest in Hawai‘i) is right there for all your grocery needs. In addition, Village Books & Music—a special pop-up in collaboration with Friends of the Library of Hawai'i—is located in the East Villages Shops, and boasts an impressive collection of books, music, and media. All this and more set against the beautiful backdrop of famous south shore sunsets. You will find that just strolling through the musical sidewalks is a welcome fresh-air activity.


Plus, you’re invited to participate in new activities added to community offerings regularly. To celebrate spring, expect outdoor yoga classes on Sundays hosted by Core Power Yoga, as well as family-friendly weekends of kite flying, butterfly explorations in a pop-up flower garden, bicycle-centric clinics and other unique activations at Victoria Ward Park and beyond.


Enjoy the dedicated bike lanes, relax to special Aloha Friday tunes played along the promenade, and delight in the bounty of the weekly Kaka‘ako Farmers Market. Every day of the week there’s an opportunity to enjoy one or all of the many offerings at Ward Village. A well-rounded lifestyle is literally steps away.
