The Outrigger Reef on the Beach displays authentic examples of handcrafted lei hulu (feather lei) in its expansive lobby. Also showcased is artist Herb Kawainui Kane’s dramatic 36-foot-long mural depicting various past Pacific voyages. Before entering this dynamic hotel, look up at a typical canoe dating back 100 years and floating above the porte-cochere. Once inside, take in the entire collection of canoe art and the ever-changing showcases of Hawaiian artifacts curated by the Bishop Museum. A practical plus at the Outrigger: free wireless internet and free long-distance telephone calls to the neighbor islands, the mainland, and Canada.
