OLS Hotels and Resorts is adding to its existing Hawaii management portfolio with partnerships with three Aloha State properties: White Sands Hotel, Pacific Monarch and Maui Beach Hotel.
OLS is led by Hawaii hospitality industry veteran Ben Rafter, and the company currently works with six other Hawaii properties. OLS manages Renew and Royal Grove Waikiki on Oahu and Plantation Hale Suites and Banyan Harbor Resort on Kauai, while also providing essential services to Volcano House and Ainamalu at Waikoloa Beach Resort on Hawaii Island.
"We are honored to add White Sands Hotel, Pacific Monarch and Maui Beach Hotel to our growing portfolio of one-of-a-kind, independent Hawaii properties," Rafter said in a statement. "As these three properties are just as important to locals as they are to tourists, we look forward to enhancing them with our excellent hotel management services that stem from our team's long-trusted experience in elevating boutique Hawaiian hotels."
White Sands Hotel in Waikiki is a boutique hotel with 95 rooms that recently underwent a renovation and will debut new food and beverage options later in 2020. Pacific Monarch, also in Waikiki, is a residential-style hotel with 140 studios and one-bedroom suites that are equipped with either kitchenettes or full kitchens. Located in downtown Kahului, Maui Beach Hotel features 147 guestrooms, and OLS has plans to redesign the property within the next year.
Founded in 1988, OLS Hotels and Resorts has a portfolio of 30 properties throughout the U.S. with offices in Honolulu and Los Angeles.
