Brand-new Coral Reef Penthouse Suite at Outrigger Reef sets a new standard of barefoot luxury in Waikīkī

The crown jewel accommodation boasts Waikīkī’s largest oceanfront lanai with 4,000 square feet of living space.

HONOLULU – Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort, the flagship of Outrigger’s global beachfront portfolio, recently completed the latest phase of its $80 million transformation with an unveiling of the Coral Reef Penthouse Suite in the all-new Diamond Head Tower.

Emulating a quintessential beach house, the Coral Reef Penthouse Suite is a two-bedroom pied-à-terre within the resort which is rooted in Hawaiian culture and encapsulates the timeless elegance of oceanfront living. Designed with calming coastal hues and premium finishes, the penthouse suite epitomizes barefoot luxury through a sleek and functional indoor/outdoor design – providing nearly 4,000 square feet of living space, inclusive of the largest oceanfront lānai (patio) in Waikīkī.

Accessed via private elevator, the suite sleeps up to eight adults, with three artfully appointed primary bedrooms and three oversized bathrooms, plus a sleeper sofa. The third bedroom and bath is located on the suite’s first floor and is ideal for multi-generational travelers and families seeking additional space.

The light-filled kitchen and living room are chic and comfortable with a full-sized refrigerator to hold favorite beverages and bites alongside a white-washed wooden dining table to enjoy memorable meals. The outdoor lānai is furnished with plush chaise lounges, day beds and dining table – offering impeccable views of Diamond Head and the world-famous Waikīkī surf.

“The Coral Reef Penthouse name is a tribute to Outrigger’s long-standing commitment to preserving, protecting and planting coral reefs through our global conservation program – The Outrigger Zone (OZONE); for each direct booking at this premium penthouse, a portion of the proceeds will go toward coral reef conservation,” said Sean Dee, EVP and Chief Commercial Officer.

The privacy and splendor of the Coral Reef Penthouse Suite make the venue ideal for travelers seeking spacious accommodation on the water in Waikīkī that’s both set apart from other rooms while still being connected to the resort amenities and offerings. Some of the first to enjoy a preview stay at the penthouse include celebrity chefs such as Marcel Vigneron to professional athletes, like surf star Billy Kemper and Japanese tennis sensation Kei Nishikori.

“With the transformation of Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort, our intention is to continually elevate and enhance the Waikīkī experience for each and every guest – whether they hail from Austin or Zurich,” said Markus Krebs, the resort general manager. “The Coral Reef Penthouse Suite is the crown jewel of this resort and part of the all-new Wellness Wing, which has 23 additional deluxe rooms as well as a fitness center and Coral Kids Club.”

A stay at the Coral Reef Penthouse Suite includes entry to the resort’s exclusive Voyager 47 Club Lounge; the name honors the navigators who voyaged the unknown oceans via sailing canoe and 47 is a reference to Outrigger Hospitality Group’s founding in 1947 – 75 years ago. Club access offers complimentary breakfast and evening pupu (appetizer) alongside chilled craft beers and cocktails, all with special local twists and endless ocean views.

Every guest to the transformed Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort can enjoy a chic poolside experience with complimentary reef-safe sunscreen as well as original artwork from Herb Kāne, Kamea Hadar, Marques Marzan, Ethan Estess and Kari Noe – as well as treasures from Bishop Museum and the new A‘o Cultural Center.

Live Hawaiian music is heard nightly at the fully reimagined Kani Ka Pila Grille, which is now celebrating its 15th anniversary. Monkeypod Kitchen by Merriman, led by culinary pioneer Peter Merriman will be the resort’s signature beachfront dining experience starting this summer. The chef-driven concept has a commitment to high-quality local fare highlighting Hawai‘i’s bounty with socially conscious ingredients and distinctive pairings of upmarket items with upcountry favorites.
