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.

Talk about a grand entrance! After driving across the state of Pennsylvania and spending the last 40 minutes of our journey in a snowstorm, Nemacolin’s The Chateau coming into view was a welcome and gorgeous sight. After stopping at a checkpoint where our temperatures were taken, we drove to the valet, where we were helped with our many bags (winter gear takes up a lot of luggage space!) and escorted into an equally gorgeous lobby, bedecked with red roses in a nod to Nemacolin’s recent gig as host venue for the latest season of The Bachelor. Given the late hour, the lobby was quiet and empty. We were offered Champagne at check-in and were quickly on our way to our guestroom.
