Outrigger Resorts opens Voyager 47 Club Lounge at Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort
RELEASE NUMBER 38/16
WAIKIKI, HONOLULU, HAWAII – Outrigger Resorts announced the opening of its first branded Voyager 47 Club Lounge in Hawaii. Located at the Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort, the Voyager 47 Club Lounge is available exclusively to guests staying in Voyager 47 Club suites or Voyager 47 Club oceanfront rooms.
The premier club lounge is located on the third level of the resort’s Diamond Head building with both indoor and outdoor seating available and an expansive deck that overlooks iconic Waikiki Beach. Premium refreshments and elevated amenities are available that allow guests to discover specially curated localized experiences. Room décor includes an art display by local artist Shannon McCarthy made from recycled marine debris. Outrigger paddles and artwork of the voyaging canoe Hokulea also adorn the walls, commemorating Outrigger’s long-standing support and partnership with the Polynesian Voyaging Society.
In addition to the Voyager 47 Club Lounge at the Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort, current lounges at the Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort in Thailand and Outrigger Guam Beach Resort will soon be rebranded, with more premier club lounges to come at other Outrigger Resorts properties.
“As Outrigger continues to expand globally, we remain focused on providing exceptional local cultural experiences combined with world-class hospitality, and our new Voyager 47 Club Lounge at the Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort embodies this promise,” said Sean Dee, executive vice president and chief marketing officer for Outrigger Enterprises Group. “With access to this exclusive club lounge, guests can discover all that Hawaii has to offer – from fresh, local cuisine and products made here in the islands, to exploring new hiking trails, beaches and more.”
Inspired by the ancient seafaring voyagers who traversed thousands of miles and the principles of hospitality established by Outrigger founders Roy and Estelle Kelley in 1947, Voyager 47 is an extension of the Outrigger brand and its efforts to provide guests with opportunities to immerse themselves in local culture, offering a compelling guest experience and distinctive sense of place.
At the Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort, club-level guests are invited to start their day with a “Sunrise Invitation for Exploration,” a locally inspired tasting menu, including premium coffee, as they review expert advice for their day’s travels. Before leaving the lounge, guests can take a local snack to-go, which is perfectly paired with the day’s recommended activity, or consult with a Voyager 47 concierge for other options.
The “Signature Sunset Celebration” is an early evening reception that welcomes guests back to the resort for a night of rejuvenation and relaxation. Guests can enjoy pupu (hors d’oeuvre), cocktails, and a specialty draft bar by Kona Brewing Company that features seasonal brews, other spirits by local distillers and mixology specialties created for Voyager 47.
In addition to partnering with Kona Brewing Company, Outrigger has arranged special appearances with local artisans, farmers, brew masters and distillers to feature their products at the Voyager 47 Club Lounge.
The exclusive new club lounge is open from 7 to 10 a.m. and 5 to 7 p.m.
