As the renovation and reinvention of Waikiki continues into
2007, travel agents should watch for the debut of the Outrigger
Regency on Beach Walk, a head-turning newcomer that may just
redefine the condominium concept in Waikiki.
Part of Outrigger’s Waikiki Beach Walk a $460 million
redevelopment along Lewers Street, Beach Walk, Kalia Road and
Saratoga Road the 48-unit Outrigger Regency on Beach Walk is set to
welcome its first guests in February.
“The phrase ‘urban chic’ comes to mind when speaking of the
Outrigger Regency on Beach Walk,” said Steve Winter, vice president
of operations for the Outrigger Condominium Collection. “This is
truly a boutique property with a distinctive design. At the same
time, it offers all the comforts of home, and you can’t beat its
Billed as a modern, upscale resort alternative, the Outrigger
Regency on Beach Walk is promising a sense of privacy and privilege
within its walls. A step away, Waikiki Beach Walk offers the
destination’s newest shops, restaurants and entertainment.
“The Outrigger Regency on Beach Walk is ideal for the
independent traveler who is seeking the advantage of sleek Waikiki
accommodations in the heart of the action,” Winter said. “Anyone
who enjoys the convenience of a condominium with full hotel
services will be impressed with the high level of furnishings,
appliances and decor of this new addition to our line.”
Although it doesn’t have a pool, guests can use the facilities
at the nearby Outrigger Reef on the Beach.
The one- and two-bedroom units of the Outrigger Regency on Beach
Walk come with high-end amenities like complimentary high-speed
Internet access and 27-inch flat-screen televisions. Living rooms
feature tropical-hardwood floors and floor-to-ceiling windows that
open to ocean, city and mountain views. Gourmet kitchens are
equipped with a dishwasher, oven, microwave, refrigerator, coffee
maker, toaster, cookware and table settings, while white marble
vanities give the bathrooms an added touch of class.
The Outrigger Regency on Beach Walk joins the chain’s two
existing condominiums in South Oahu, including the Outrigger Luana
Waikiki, where Winter formerly served as general manager.
“We continually get high marks from Luana Waikiki guests,”
Winter said. “At the gateway to Waikiki, it’s a great choice for
the client who wants to be in Waikiki but without all the hustle
and bustle of a typical Waikiki hotel.”
Outrigger Waikiki Shore, meanwhile, boasts a beachfront setting
resulting in unparalleled views from its accommodations. At the
neighboring Outrigger Reef on the Beach, Waikiki Shore guests have
access to a full-service resort experience with all the amenities,
including a swimming pool.
Winter is obviously pleased with Outrigger’s trio of
condominiums in Waikiki.
“Each is distinctive in its own right, but all of them offer
first-rate accommodations with the Outrigger brand of island
hospitality,” he noted.
While Outrigger’s Condominium Collection’s nightly rates run
slightly higher than those of the competition, the family-owned
company is doing what it takes to ensure that guests enjoy the best
condominium vacation experience available, adds Winter.
“We are not focused on quantity, but rather on quality,” he
Winter believes the Outrigger Regency on Beach Walk will
position his chain as a leader in offering condominium suites in
Waikiki’s best locations.
“We definitely want our travel agent partners to experience the
new property,” he said. “It may be difficult at times to secure
accommodations, but we’ll do our best to honor requests.”
When space is available, travel agents can stay at any Outrigger
property for up to 50 percent off published rates.
