Unprepared for your beach run? Never fear, Waikiki Beach’s Hotel Renew is here. The intimate, artsy Jiun Ho-designed hotel, situated seconds from the Pacific, not only provides cushy towels but also beach chairs, boogie boards, and (at a mere $10) Hotel Renew-logo flip-flops. After your swim, luxuriate in your kimono-style designer bathrobes and take in the rarified atmosphere of Honolulu’s first deluxe boutique hotel, whose 72 rooms give a nod to nature with Shoji screens, wave patterned carpet, and natural rock hues. Then there are the TVs, some measuring a whopping 80 inches, projected against an entire wall to transform Jiun Ho’s stylish guest rooms into lavish movie theaters.
