HONOLULU, OAHU, HAWAII – OHANA Hotels & Resorts has completed a $1.3
million upgrade to the 110-room OHANA Reef Lanai, located at 225
Saratoga Road in Waikiki.
This boutique-style hotel is just a block from the beach and Fort
DeRussy Park and offers friendly island service and a selection of
comfortable guest rooms and kitchenettes, many with eye-catching ocean
or park views.
Guests checking into the OHANA Reef Lanai are now greeted with a newly
refurbished lobby with island themed artwork and wood furnishings.
Quartzite stone flooring adorns the lobby and outside patio areas.
Elevators have been upgraded with security in mind. A guest's valid
card key is now necessary to
access all guest floors.
Corridors, guest rooms and suites are now sporting new wallpaper and
carpeting. Other upgrades to guest rooms and suites include new beds,
bedspreads, drapery, sofa beds, televisions and fully refinished and
reupholstered furnishings. Kitchenettes have new granite counter tops
and updated fixtures.
According to Bitsy Kelley, director of business and brand development
for OHANA Hotels, the OHANA Reef Lanai is one of Waikiki's hidden
gems. This hotel has so much going for it, Kelley said. If you're
looking for comfort, value and a great location, the OHANA Reef Lanai
is for you.
Kelley added that return guests especially like the complimentary
continental breakfast that is available to hotel guests each morning
from 7:00 to 8:30 am in Buzz's Restaurant, located just off of the
hotel lobby. It's an added benefit unique to this particular OHANA
hotel, Kelley noted.
All rooms at the OHANA Reef Lanai offer refrigerators, irons, ironing
boards, hair dryers, voice mail, Nintendo games and in-room movies.
Kitchenettes come equipped with a microwave oven, refrigerator, sink,
cooking utensils, toaster and a coffee maker. There is ample parking
on property as well as a coin-operated laundry facility, making the
hotel ideal for longer stays. Guests also have pool and whirlpool spa
privileges at the
beachfront Outrigger Reef hotel, which is just a five-minute walk away.
Guests will also find the Cowabunga Kids Club and the Serenity Spa at the
Outrigger Reef, both of which are available to guests of the OHANA Reef
