This classy new Hawaiian hotel has 15,000 square feet of flexible indoor and outdoor meeting and event space, including 4,560 square feet of studio-style rooms. Corporate meetings, conferences, luncheons, receptions and social occasions can take advantage of open kitchens and breakout rooms that let attendees engage with local chefs.
Bonus: Planners who book a qualifying meeting can earn up to 100,000 Hyatt Gold Passport bonus points.
