Honolulu’s Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort is fresh from a US$80 million makeover, one of the best the state has ever seen, and headlining the makeover is the brilliant Coral Reef Penthouse Suite, which has just been launched to major fanfare.

Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort’s Coral Reef Penthouse Suite offers exactly what you’d want for a fantastic Oahu experience, including an oversized lanai (balcony), kitchen, two King beds, a Queen sofa sleeper and two bathrooms with tubs.

Capping off the experience, the Coral Reef Penthouse Suite also has exclusive access to Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort’s popular Voyager 47 Club Lounge, which offers breakfast and evening cocktails and pupus (appetisers).

To find out more about the new Coral Reef Penthouse Suite, Wayfarer Host and Editor-In-Chief, James Wilkinson, spoke exclusively on camera to Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort General Manager, Markus Krebs, and to view the interview, click on the YouTube image above.


The best way of getting to Honolulu in comfort and style.

Book a seat in Hawaiian’s brilliant Business Class cabin


Hawaiian Airlines flies to Honolulu from Sydney, Auckland and across the mainland United States. Hawaiian’s brilliant onboard experience includes a stylish Business Class cabin and more Extra Comfort seats on the widebody Airbus A330 aircraft.

In Business Class, you’ find flatbed seats, in a 2-2-2 configuration, that fold down into 180-degree beds that are 20.5 inches wide by 76 inches long.

Also expect a Mai Tai on arrival (and during the flight), a Hawaiian-styled meal service and after dinner, a sleeper service on the overnight flight to Honolulu that features pink duvets and pillows, and new amenity kits. Entertainment comes in the form of large-format iPad tablets that sit on a telescoping arm – something also ideal if you want to watch content on your own device.

It’s also an exciting time for Hawaiian Airlines as the United States carrier re-boots its global network, prepares for the delivery of Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner and focuses its efforts on being more sustainable than ever before.

Hawaiian has also upgraded its Hawaiian Miles program, taken delivery of Airbus A321s and launched free inflight WiFi and to find out the latest, Wayfarer host and Editor-In-Chief, James Wilkinson, spoke exclusively on camera in Honolulu recently with the airline’s Senior Vice President, Avi Mannis.
