Located in Honolulu’s Waikiki neighbourhood, The Wayfinder Waikiki is the second Wayfinder property under Dovetail + Co – an owner and creator of hotels, bars and restaurants across the Americas.

Designed by The Vanguard Theory, the hotel merges the building’s Brutalist architecture with tropical touches, electrifying colours and patterns, alongside lush foliage specific to the island. The 228 guestrooms are inspired by the sites, stories and heritage of Hawaii, blending shades that represent the land, sky and water, as well as geometric and floral prints, and natural fibre furniture with decorative art and design elements incorporated throughout by local artisans.

The Wayfinder Waikiki is also home to several culinary venues, entertainment and shopping experiences including B-Side, a sensory coffee shop that also features a retail store within; Lost + Found, a tropical speakeasy and pool bar; and Redfish Waikiki, bringing Foodland’s poke restaurant concept to Waikiki.
