ESPACIO The Jewel of Waikiki Named #1 Hotel in Hawaii

Condé Nast Traveler has announced the results of its annual Readers’ Choice Awards, with the luxury boutique hotel, ESPACIO The Jewel of Waikiki, recognized as the #1 Hotel in Hawaii.

More than 240,000 Condé Nast Traveler readers submitted responses rating their travel experiences across the globe to provide a full snapshot of the top places they enjoyed this year and can’t wait to return to next. The Readers’ Choice Awards are the longest-running and most prestigious recognition of excellence in the travel industry and the full list of winners can be found here.

“We are honored to be recognized by our guests for this prestigious award just three years after opening our doors,” said David Wong, General Manager. “The ESPACIO ethos is rooted in providing an unparalleled luxury experience drawn from the Japanese art of omotenashi, wherein every guest’s want is anticipated.”

Recognition from Condé Nast Traveler readers comes on the heels of ESPACIO’s recent designation as a Forbes Five-Star Hotel, further establishing the boutique property as the leading luxury experience in the bustling Waikiki. With beachfront access and unparalleled views of Waikiki Beach, ESPACIO offers a haven for discerning travelers with nine luxurious, multi-room suites—each 2,250 square feet and occupying their own floor with spectacular panoramic views of the world-famous Waikiki beachfront. The hotel offers the touches of an ultra-luxury resort with the privacy of an upscale vacation residence, with discreet residence-style accommodations that are designed to offer privacy in the heart of one of Hawaii’s most vibrant neighborhoods.

Beyond the suites, guests enjoy access to the rooftop infinity pool, champagne and caviar service and in-suite chef’s dinners, a full-service spa with Polynesian-inspired treatments, and fine dining at the lauded French Japanese tasting menu restaurant, Mugen, helmed by rising star Chef Jason Yamaguchi.

The 2022 Readers’ Choice Awards are published on Condé Nast Traveler’s website at and celebrated in the November issue.
