The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Waikiki Beach welcomed its first guests July 15.  

Located a few blocks from the beach, the 307-unit condo-hotel offers travelers studio accommodations and one-, two- and three-bedroom layouts along with penthouse options. Each of the residences feature full kitchens and en suite laundry facilities.

Guests can also take advantage of a large infinity pool, located near a bar and grill, and a Ritz-Carlton Spa. Dining venues now include the BLT Market with mid-September openings planned for Hawaii's first Dean & Deluca and Sushi Sho, run by celebrated Tokyo chef Keiji Nakazawa.

"The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Waikiki Beach brings elegance and luxury to Kuhio Avenue, adding a level of sophistication to a part of Waikiki undergoing significant enhancements," George Szigeti, the Hawaii Tourism Authority's president and CEO, said in a statement. "It is vital that Hawaii's tourism industry is able to offer a variety of quality lodging accommodations to match the desires and pocketbooks of global travelers. Ritz-Carlton is a brand name of choice for discerning travelers and will provide them with another reason to choose Waikiki."  

The 38-story Waikiki property is the first Ritz-Carlton on Oahu and the second in Hawaii, joining the Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua on Maui. The Waikiki condo-hotel's second high-rise tower is now under construction and will feature about 250 units when work wraps up, likely in 2018.
