The Vision

Hotel Renew - Honolulu's New Luxury Boutique Hotel

Experience. For the savvy traveler seeking a fresh experience in Waikiki, Hotel Renew departs from the typical Hawaiian décor and tiki torches. The cool limestone and sand-blasted oak woods serve as an elegant backdrop for your distinct experience to unfold. Delivering tranquility and calm to the energy of Waikiki Beach, Hotel Renew is a welcomed respite from the tropical sun, leaving you refreshed, inspired, and renewed.

Upon arrival, you are greeted with timeless décor and staff that are personal and genial. Your stay begins with a cold scented towel and chilled beverage at check-in, followed by a familiarization with our luxury guest room amenities and services. This is no doubt the best kept secret in Honolulu.

An expert on island activities and the culture of Hawaii, Hotel Renew allows you to create a memorable and unique stay all your own. With only 72 guest rooms, Hotel Renew becomes an intimate experience from the moment you arrive.


Hotel Renew is not just an upscale boutique hotel, it’s a way of life. A standard of living. Practice made perfect. From the moment you step into our tropical oasis, you realize the staff, the amenities, and the hotel becomes your passion in paradise.

Mother Earth. We must take care of her as she takes care of us. Your commitment to help the environment is a daily factor in your life. Hotel Renew also makes it a daily commitment and consideration in every aspect of your stay.
