The Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa has introduced a handful of new retailers to the property's shopping area, the Pualeilani Atrium Shops.

Tour Park, a travel services and tour company, and local jeweler Alamea are now open at the shops. Billabong, which has an existing location at the shops, is being renovated and expanded to double its current square footage. Dylan's Candy Bar, an expansive sweet shop, is scheduled to open its first Hawaii location at the center prior to the holiday shopping season.

"We're constantly striving to offer locals and travelers to Waikiki an unparalleled experience featuring the best island-inspired retailers and businesses from both a national and local level." Bonnie Kiyabu, director of retail operations at the resort, said in a statement. "The addition and expansion of these retailers to our collection will keep the Atrium Shops experience fresh and interesting, just in time for fall travel and the start of holiday shopping season."

The Pualeilani Atrium Shops is a three-level, open-air shopping center with a variety of local boutiques and specialty stores, dining options, high-end national retailers, and businesses offering activities and tours.

Tour Park caters to Korean travelers, offering tour and activities services. Alamea offers custom natural stone Hawaiian jewelry.

Additionally, Moniz Family Surf, a locally owned surf school, will operate out of the renovated, 6,315-square-foot, Billabong space.

"As a Hawaiian family born and raised on Waikiki Beach, we hope to give others the opportunity to experience the happiness this beach brings us, the joy of riding her waves, and the beauty of all that surrounds her." Tammy Moniz, of Moniz Family Surf, said in the release.

Dylan's Candy Bar will feature pop art installations, ultra-sensory displays, and more than 7,000 confections to choose in a colorful 6,100-square-foot space.
