Waikiki Beach Walk® Celebrates its 10th Anniversary

October 2017 marks a decade of Waikiki Beach Walk - the vibrant, open-air shopping, dining and entertainment district located in the heart of Waikiki. The multi-million dollar redevelopment on Lewers Street - the largest private development in Waikiki's history - transformed the mauka-makai corridor into a world-class shopping, dining and entertainment complex, and sparked a movement to revitalize Waikiki and create the visitor destination we see today. Since then Waikiki Beach Walk has served as a gathering place for local residents and visitors alike, with nearly 2,000 hotel rooms and 40 restaurant and retail tenants in 97,000 square feet of space.

"For 10 years we have continued to offer new and exciting shopping, dining and hospitality experiences in a setting that celebrates the best of the islands," said Barbara Campbell, vice president of retail development and leasing for Outrigger Enterprises Group. "Waikiki Beach Walk has become the favorite Waikiki gathering place of local residents and visitors alike and we look forward to remaining a top destination where guests can shop, eat, play and stay for decades to come."

With the vision of bringing new energy and vitality to one of the world's most popular visitor destinations, Waikiki Beach Walk was designed to honor the best of island heritage from the architectural design to the overall experience. Inspired by the Hawaiian outrigger canoe and the ocean, glass canopies hover gracefully over the outdoor plaza and take their inspiration from the movement of the sea. The supporting beams are reminiscent of the boom ('iako) and float (ama) of the outrigger canoe. Water features, tropical foliage and stone walkways give Waikiki Beach Walk visitors an inviting, natural open-air environment to explore.

Today, the center is also recognized for its commitment to Hawaiian music and cultural activities. Most recently, Waikiki Beach Walk dedicated a larger than life, bronze statue of Hawaiian music icon, Gabby Pahinui, to its open-air plaza. From the Na Mele No Na Pua Sunday Showcase offered two Sundays per month, which brings to life the past, present and future of Hawaii's performing arts through the islands' best entertainers in a casual, family-style setting, to daily ukulele lessons, weekly hula shows and more, Waikiki Beach Walk captures the best of vintage and modern Hawaii.

Waikiki Beach Walk is owned by American Assets Trust and managed by Retail Resort Properties, an affiliate of Outrigger Enterprises Group, a company synonymous with island hospitality, and anchored by hotels Embassy Suites by Hilton™-Waikiki Beach Walk® and Wyndham Vacation Ownership-Waikiki Beach Walk®. Well-known restaurants include Roy's Waikiki, Ruth's Chris Steakhouse, Yard House and unique boutique retailers such as Mahina, Kai Luxe, The Refinery and Wyland Galleries have all found success at the shopping and dining destination.

In celebration of this milestone anniversary, guests can enter to win one of 32 Waikiki Beach Walk gift cards from the shops and restaurants. Enter-to-win online on its website or in-person at participating retailers. In addition to the contest, restaurants and retailers are providing limited-time offers to diners and shoppers.
