The 125-room Mandarin Oriental, Honolulu, will debut in heart of the city's Ala Moana district in 2020. The property, which will be the anchor of the 36-story, mixed-use Mana'loan Place tower, will be built adjacent to the Hawaii Convention Center and the Ala Moana Center and a short walk to Waikiki Beach and Ala Moana Beach. 

The luxury hotel will feature a rooftop restaurant and bar with landscaped outdoor terraces that offer views of Diamond Head, Ala Moana Beach and downtown Honolulu. Plans also call for a lobby lounge, an all-day dining restaurant, and extensive banqueting and meeting spaces. Facilities will include the Spa at Mandarin Oriental, offering with eight treatment rooms, as well as a fitness center and an outdoor pool.

"We are delighted with this opportunity to open a hotel in Honolulu and look forward to bringing Mandarin Oriental's legendary hospitality back to Hawaii," said James Riley, group chief executive of Mandarin Oriental.
