This spring, The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Waikiki Beach is catering to the rise of pod travel – close friends, families and loved ones traveling together – with the debut of its new “Pod Travel Concierge” program. With the influx of new nonstop flights to Hawaii coupled with COVID-19 entry testing and quarantine measures state-wide, this award-winning, luxury residential resort on the majestic Hawaiian Island of O‘ahu is the perfect warm-weather escape for travel pods seeking a relaxing, personalized, and memorable vacation with peace of mind.
The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Waikiki Beach offers 552 spacious, residential-style guest rooms along with suites that range from one- to four-bedroom accommodations across two towers. All rooms and suites offer unobstructed views of the Pacific Ocean, accentuated by floor-to-ceiling windows and lanais, which underscore the very best of Waikiki living. Fully-equipped gourmet kitchens with premium Miele appliances and Sub-Zero refrigerators complement the in-residence washers and dryers and deep soaking tubs—ideal for those who covet the familiar comforts of a home with the luxuries of a five-star resort.
Pod Travel Concierge
Guests who book any multi-room suite will have exclusive access to the resort’s new Pod Travel Concierge program with their loved ones as an extended service. Features emphasize the very best of Waikiki, all accompanied by world-class Ritz-Carlton service. Pre-arrival, the concierge will make note of dietary restrictions and palate-pleasing offerings to stock the gourmet kitchens with groceries sourced from local markets. Private group meals and cocktail hours can be arranged in-suite from local purveyors. While the property offers an incredible array of amenities on-site – including two infinity pools towering above the vibrant streets of Waikiki – the Pod Travel Concierge can placate feelings of wanderlust through safely-curated excursions and socially distanced activities such as a private yacht to sail along the coast of Waikiki at sunset or a private tour guide for an adventurous circle island tour.
Travel pods seeking the ultimate private experience are welcome to reserve the resort’s entire spa for an exclusive tranquil escape without having to share the 3,400-square-foot, multi-level space with other guests. With the help of the resort’s travel pod concierge, guests can enjoy signature treatments inspired by the balancing elements of the islands and find serenity in the spa’s relaxation lounge, eucalyptus steam rooms and dry cedar sauna—all within the comfort of their exclusive private circle.
For an extra layer of privacy and exclusivity, travel pods can also reserve an entire floor of 10 guest rooms and suites in the resort’s Diamond Head Tower for a “hotel-within-a-hotel” feel. The resort’s pod travel concierge can plan immersive experiences for the entire floor to enjoy while visiting Waikiki Beach.
