Stay Well, Sleep Well in Honolulu

by Susi, 10 August 2008

A peaceful enclave in the Hotel Renew lobby, Honolulu.

The Aqua hotel in Honolulu has reinvented itself as a green, sleek, design boutique property called Renew. What was basically an uninspired late-century box of a hotel is now rather splendid, thanks to its appropriate reinvention, with metro-tropical Asian interiors by Jiun Ho, Malay-born, San Francisco-based designer, whose career we’ve been following for some time. So if you thought that a tasteful, environmentally-responsible stay in a city like Honolulu wasn’t possible, think again. And rooms are priced below $200 online at various travel discount sites.

Getting tropical design right in a changing world (and in a rapidly urbanising Bali), is something we are very interested in, and here’s an interesting approach.
