How do you elevate the Waikiki resort pool?
Perch it atop the second level of the redefining Waikiki luxury resort, to start – literally, you’ll ascend a staircase hewn from rich Brazilian ipe to access THE MODERN HONOLULU’s Sunset Pool, one level up from the Sunrise Pool.
Then, add a few extravagances (that’s THE MODERN HONOLULU way): 100 tons of sand from neighboring islands. An alluring central lagoon laid with cobalt glass tiles custom-designed by Yves Klein, late practitioner of the French art movement nouveau réalisme. Your luxe chaise straddles the sand and the water – unless you slip into the hammock beneath slender palms or a pillow-strewn daybed fringed by native foliage. Thank landscape and garden genius Deborah Nevins of SoHo-based Deborah Nevins & Associates for dreaming of the scene..
Naturally, there’s food and beverage service featuring THE MODERN HONOLULU’s organic, artisanal ingredients – think island-grown salads, globally-inspired small plates, signature cocktails – regardless of the Sunset Pool space you claim. But you might seek the shade of an umbrella that shelters a table on the sand; rendezvous with friends at the bar, mere steps from the sand and lagoon; stroll to the rooftop’s edge for an unmatched view of the city, ocean and sky.
The scene at THE MODERN HONOLULU’s Sunset Pool positively glows at night. Underfoot, candles illuminate your step. The sparkle of the Waikiki skyline surrounds you. Up-lit trees and hanging lanterns shift your gaze to the moon and stars.
If it sounds magical – exclusive – it is. THE MODERN HONOLULU’s Sunset Pool is open solely to our adult guests. With younger guests, enjoy THE MODERN HONOLULU’s Sunrise Pool, at the heart of our stylish resort.
