Hilton Grand Vacations has opened its newest Hawaii property, the Grand Waikikian. As a landmark addition to the world-famous Hilton Hawaiian Village Beach Resort & Spa, the all-suite resort will primarily accommodate owners and provide rental suites to visitors seeking residential-style accommodations.

The 331-unit, all-suite Grand Waikikian by Hilton Grand Vacations Club is the company’s fifth timeshare development in Hawaii. It joins the existing 236-unit Lagoon Tower and 72-unit Kalia Tower at the Hilton Hawaiian Village on Oahu, as well as the 120-unit Hilton Grand Vacations Club at Waikoloa Beach Resort and recently opened 198-unit Kings’ Land by Hilton Grand Vacations Club, both located on the Big Island of Hawaii.

“Waikiki continues to ride a wave of renewal, and Hilton Grand Vacations is pleased to play a significant role in that story, bringing a luxurious new resort to one of the world’s most celebrated destinations and to Honolulu’s best stretch of beach,” said Mark Wang, president of Hilton Grand Vacations. “The Grand Waikikian is an iconic addition to our growing collection of resorts and will deliver an unparalleled vacation experience to our owners and guests.”

The 38-story Grand Waikikian evokes the ambiance of a grand hotel, while offering the amenities and comforts of a world-class resort condominium. The resort features one-, two- and three-bedroom suites, including five floors of designated penthouses that offer spectacular views and a separate check-in area, concierge and lounge. Incorporated throughout each suite are a private outdoor lanai, upscale furnishings, modern full kitchen, washer and dryer, luxurious linens, flat-screen televisions, state-of-the-art entertainment system, complimentary high-speed wireless Internet access, elegant bathroom fixtures with deep-soaking tub, and rich woods and stone details. The resort’s new 5,000-square-foot pool, scheduled for completion this month, will feature a waterslide, waterfalls and swim-through grotto terraces.

The Grand Waikikian complements the surrounding 22-acre oceanfront resort of Hilton Hawaiian Village, which features more than 90 shops and boutiques and a diverse, international selection of restaurants. The Hilton’s beachfront Super Pool is the largest on the island of Oahu and transforms into a celebration of Hawaiian culture and entertainment on Friday evenings, culminating with a spectacular fireworks display.

The Grand Waikikian is offering a Mahalo Package for guests wishing to book at the property and stay four or more consecutive nights. The Mahalo Package includes 10,000 Hilton HHonors® bonus points, double miles with one of more than 20 airlines, and a complimentary bathrobe. This offer is valid for stays from now until June 15, 2009 for room rates starting at $349 per night and is based on availability.
