Aqua Hotels and Resorts has expanded its boutique hotel collection with the addition of Aqua Lotus Honolulu, formerly known as the Lotus at Diamond Head and W Honolulu. The Hawaii management firm is launching an upgrade of the 51-room property, located at the east end of Waikiki. As it refurbishes the property’s guestrooms, public spaces and restaurant, Aqua is retaining the Asian-inspired decor for which the Lotus is known.
“Aqua Lotus Honolulu is perfect for a number of niches including family, romance and active travelers, so we will be reaching out to these markets with introductory specials to reacquaint travelers and agents with the hotel,” said Aqua sales and marketing vice president Elizabeth Churchill. www.aquaresorts.com
