The new Espacio, a luxury resort by Aqua-Aston Hospitality that opened in Waikiki in the fall, is offering an accommodation style that will appeal to big spenders. The hotel has nine stories, and each floor is occupied by just one very large suite.
The luxury suites each measure 209 square metres, including two or three separate bedrooms with king beds and 3.5 bathrooms.
Decor is defined by globally inspired furnishings, such as handmade carpets from China, Italian marble details and metalwork from Morocco.
Gourmet meals can be created in modern kitchens with Thermador and Miele appliances, and picture perfect sunsets await from the private balconies, each equipped with a Jacuzzi.
More personalized services and amenities are available in other parts of the hotel, including a rooftop infinity pool with sweeping views of the Pacific and a full-service spa.
There is also fine dining at Mugen restaurant, led by chef Jason Yamaguchi, which gets daily seafood shipments from Japan. Complimentary transfers by Mercedes-Benz sedans are also provided. Nightly rates range from US$3,500 to US$4,500.
