Outrigger Kona Resort & Spa unveils $60m transformation


The 22-acre OUTRIGGER Kona Resort & Spa has been reborn following a US$60 million revitalisation across its 511 rooms and public spaces.

The resort’s expansive Kaleiopapa Convention Center has also undergone enhancements across its more than 100,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space, while Club-level room guests gain exclusive access to the new Voyager 47 Club Lounge.


To mark the relaunch, a traditional Hawaiian blessing by Kumu Keala Ching was conducted at the centre of the property on May 1, coinciding with Lei Day in Hawai’i.

“Through meticulous design and a deep-rooted cultural narrative, OUTRIGGER Kona Resort & Spa invites guests on a transformative journey, embodying the essence of ‘kōī au’—a flowing current of experiences that resonate with the captivating spirit of Keauhou Bay,” said Geoff Pearson, general manager of OUTRIGGER Kona Resort & Spa.

“We aspire to etch an enduring impression on our guests’ hearts and minds, fostering a profound connection with Hawai‘i’s rich tapestry of history and traditions. With enhanced amenities including Piko Coffee & Wine Bar, we look forward to a new era of Keauhou and perpetuating the legacy of this sacred place.”
