The Waikiki Parc Hotel will close for extensive renovations next fall.

Complete details of the major overhaul haven’t been finalized, however, and the exact length of the hotel’s closure hasn’t yet been determined, according to a spokeswoman for the property.

Fans of Nobu Waikiki, a high-end restaurant currently located on the ground floor of the Waikiki Parc, should note that the popular dining establishment will be moving in late 2016 to Honolulu’s Kakaako district, taking up residence on the ground floor of a new luxury high-rise residential tower now under construction at Ward Village.

“Ward Village is creating a new community in the heart of Honolulu that is unlike anything that exists in Hawaii,” Chef Nobu Matsuhisa said in a Dec. 17 statement. “The combination of world class architecture, a walkable neighborhood and an authentic district of high-quality shops, restaurants and entertainment offerings makes Ward Village a unique destination and the place to be in Honolulu.”

The 297-room Waikiki Parc boutique property is owned by the Halekulani Corp., which also owns the oceanfront Halekulani luxury resort across the street.
