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.

Creating a Wellness Environment in the Workplace

Creating a wellness environment in the workplace is a terrific idea, and many companies acknowledge the benefits of providing health and wellness programs to employees. However, the concept is anything but new. More than a century ago, Johnson & Johnson offered its New Jersey-based employees access to an on-site health center and a fitness center with a swimming pool and basketball court. In the 1970s, the company followed with the launch of Live for Life, an on-site wellness program with “access to behavior modification tools and education on topics like nutrition, stress management and more.”

United Airlines — First Class Review

ON THE GROUND: We took a car service from my home in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, to Newark (about 50 minutes) as we would be gone for more than 10 days and could save on the parking. We probably had more luggage than necessary and both checked a bag. Check-in was swift, as was security, and we had time to stop by the United Club using our United Mileage-Plus Club Card from Chase for entry. We tried to sneak into Polaris, but it is limited to international business-class travelers; even though this is a long flight, it is still domestic.
