Celebrated for its expertise in Hawaiian culture and design, noted Philpotts & Associates Interior Design team's vision for the new Residence interiors infuses Ritz-Carlton sophistication with contemporary furnishings and a Hawaiian sense of place. The reimagined interior décor incorporates the rich spectrum of the hotel's surroundings, from the earthy tones of the island's lush mountains and natural rainforest to the azure blue of the ocean. Beautiful woods and rich green, brown and cream hues mix seamlessly with elegant, new furnishings to create a warm, serene and naturally luxurious living space. Artwork created by local artisans and inspired by the natural beauty of the islands can be found throughout the Residences.
The enhanced kitchen makes each Residence feel like a home away from home with a double burner stovetop, refrigerator, freezer, dishwasher, convection microwave and an eat-up bar to maximize living space where families can come together and forge new traditions and memories. Kitchens are fully stocked with china, glassware, cutlery, cookware, utensils and appliances (toaster, blender and Nespresso coffee maker). For added convenience, the hotel offers an in-room shopping program which can be arranged in advance so that the suite will be fully stocked with a variety of beverages and snacks upon arrival.
