From the impressive canoe-hale arrival experience lit by traditional fishing-basket lanterns to the artfully appointed accommodations, the resort design emulates an elegant Hawai‘i beach house, warmly welcoming guests home.

Whether an adventure seeker, leisure lover, beach goer, or culture craver, you’ll find a satisfying stay at Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort, perfectly situated both peacefully beachfront and at the heartbeat of Waikīkī.


Voyaging Legacy

“The resort’s rich tradition of celebrating the voyaging canoe and wayfinding, everlasting symbols of exploration and courage, permeate brilliantly throughout the physical spaces and come to life in family friendly programming at the new cultural activities center – creating a uniquely authentic guest experience,” said Markus Krebs, the resort’s general manager.

Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort recently unveiled the property’s most exclusive adventure package: The Reef’s Navigator Experience – affording discerning travelers an opportunity to explore the natural wonders of the island with a private chauffeur, helicopter and yacht. Travelers who book this package will enjoy the serenity and comfort of the resort’s ‘Navigator Floor’ – with 10,000 square feet of private living space including five penthouse suites named in honor of Hawai‘i’s esteemed Pwo Navigators, a common area and the largest lānai in Waikīkī. The accommodations are ideal for multi-generational family getaways, epic trips with close friends or luxury seekers on a bucket-list vacation.


Home of Hawaiian Music

Kani Ka Pila Grille, the full-service poolside dining venue, famous for nightly live Hawaiian music by award-winning performers such as Kawika Kahiapo and Bobby Moderow, has been expanded with a larger stage and additional open-air seating. Slack-key legend Cyril Pahinui bestowed the venue’s name, which means “let’s play music” and evokes the unfettered joys of backyard jam sessions and impromptu hula.


Commitment to Reef Conservation

Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort remains committed to caring for coral reefs through Outrigger’s ZONE (OZONE) a global conservation initiative that provides enriching experiences for guests that protect our oceans from harm and help them to thrive for generations to come. Helping to eliminate plastic from the property, water stations have been installed on each floor for guests to refill the metal Outrigger water bottles provided at check-in.
