Mandarin Oriental is returning to Hawaii in a new Honolulu tower next to Ala Moana Shopping Centre, on the Hawaiian island of Oahu. The hotel will be a short walk from Waikiki Beach and it will also be adjacent to the Hawaii Convention Centre.

The Mandarin Oriental, Honolulu will be the anchor of Mana`olana Place, a 36-story mixed-use tower with gardens and public plazas, currently being developed by Los Angeles-based Salem Partners.

The 36-story tower is scheduled to open in 2020. The building will have 125 hotel rooms and is designed to reflect the Hawaiian culture. It will also house over a hundred residences. The owners of the residential apartments will be able to use hotel services.

Mandarin Oriental, Honolulu will feature a rooftop restaurant and bar with landscaped outdoor terraces, providing views of Diamond Head, Ala Moana Beach and Downtown Honolulu. There will also be a lobby lounge, an all-day dining restaurant, an outdoor swimming pool, a holistic spa, and extensive banqueting and meeting spaces with views over the surrounding terraces and gardens.

Mandarin Oriental is the latest luxury hotel brand to enter the Oahu market. Last year, the Four Seasons opened at Ko Olina and the Ritz Carlton (pictured above) opened in Waikiki.
