Local wellness is the name of the game for Waikīkī’s original boutique hotel.

Renew, a boutique hotel in Waikīkī, just unveiled the details for a complete redesign and rebrand. The hotel’s new goal is local wellness. The redesign includes new, modern rooms, a new lobby, lobby bar, redesigned corridors and new amenities and experiences throughout the property.

The 72-room property is just a quick walk away from Waikīkī Beach and brings the focus to local wellness trends.

“We are excited to welcome guests to experience a new type of wellness at Renew,” said Thomas Harris, general manager, Renew. “Renew is the starting and end destination for those who want to experience more than Hawai’i’s traditional tourist spots, and we look forward to providing our guests meaningful and memorable stays with our revitalized property and amenities along with exceptional service.”

Guests receive a lemongrass-scented towel and a glass of iced pure Mamaki tea. The tea is known locally for its healing and detoxifying qualities. An on-site wellness concierge gives visitors access to the island’s best wellness-minded restaurants, activities, shopping, parks and more.

Rooms are packed with plush robes and natural Korres cosmetics. Guests can also request wellness kits in their rooms, including resistance bands, weights, ab rollers, mini Pilates balls and more. Upon departure, guests also receive a gift of Mānoa Honey.

The Island of the Knights

Welcome to Rhodes, a medieval treasure beautifully preserved throughout the centuries. Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese, an island ideal not only for those who want to relax, but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday! With its bright green hills, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place. “The sun island” has more sunshiny days and milder temperatures throughout the year than any other location in Greece. It is, after all, one of the country’s easternmost places and among the first to welcome summer on its impressive beaches. Add in the excellent facilities for tourism, the island’s special blend of cosmopolitan and traditional, and numerous cultural and archaeological sites, the most important being the Medieval (Old) Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you’ve got the perfect holiday destination. While on Rhodes, don’t miss a daytrip to nearby Sými. An island of sponge divers and seamen, Sými used to have 30,000 inhabitants before the Second World War and was the richest island in the Dodecanese, despite its small size. Today, Sými attracts many visitors thanks to its beautifully preserved Neo-Classical buildings and the famous Archangel Michael monastery at Panormitis.
