Since it was established in 1967, Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort has been synonymous with Hawaiian hospitality and a vacation in paradise. Now, five decades later, what started as a prime oceanfront property owned by the Queen Emma Estate and occupied by the Outrigger Canoe Club in the early 1960s, has transformed into an extravagant 524-room resort destination where travellers from across the globe can experience local island culture and embrace the brand’s passion for exploration and discovery, while sharing the values upon which Outrigger was founded.
This was one of the first affordable-luxury hotels in the history of this remarkable destination. Brand founders, Roy and Estelle Kelley, pioneered the value-driven travel segment and forever changed the platform of Hawaii’s hospitality industry with the Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort.
Today, the Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort’s premier position on world-famous Waikiki Beach and its exceptional “aloha” hospitality is centered around offering an array of destination-specific amenities, cultural programs and activities that provide opportunities for guests to feel a stronger sense of place, attracting millions of guests from around the world. As part of its ongoing commitment to preserving and sharing the island’s rich heritage, Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort offers weekly cultural and educational activities and Signature Experiences, including a beachside Hawaiian-inspired vow renewal ceremony, lei making, ukulele lessons, canoe carving and painting displays, along with other special events year-round. The resort is also home to world famous Duke’s Waikiki, the legendary beachfront bar and restaurant, where guests can hear Hawaii’s legendary performer, Henry Kapono, play every Sunday, and Blue Note Hawaii, the state’s premier venue for world-renowned artists, from jazz and blues to Hawaiian favorites for limited engagements.
