Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort Launches Swell New “Duke’s Package”
HONOLULU – Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort today announced the launch of a swell new vacation package in honor of legendary waterman and ambassador of aloha – Duke Kahanamoku. Sip, SUP and slumber… enjoy beachfront bliss with every 4th night free at the home of Duke’s Waikiki.
In partnership with the resort’s famous Duke’s Waikiki restaurant, the Duke’s Package includes every fourth-night free plus daily breakfast, brunch or lunch for two at Duke’s/Hula Grill and a complimentary hula pie with purchase of an entrée, as well as 15-percent off at the Duke’s retail shop. It also includes a rent-one, get one 50-percent-off stand-up paddle (SUP) board from Faith Surf School, conveniently located on the sands fronting the resort and owned by the Moniz Family – a squad of surf stars who carry forward the essence of aloha in Waikiki.
A percentage of the package proceeds go to Outrigger Duke Kahanamoku Foundation, a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization whose mission is to financially support the development of individuals and organizations that perpetuate the spirit and legacy of Duke Kahanamoku.
“Guests to Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort can swim and SUP in the same turquoise waters that Duke Kahanamoku enjoyed, then retreat back to the resort to sip on famous Mai Tai’s and more from Duke’s Waikiki restaurant,” said Sean Dee, EVP and CMO at Outrigger Hospitality Group. “The premier beach resort brand is named ‘Outrigger’ because of Outrigger Canoe Club – where Duke was a member and spent many of his days swimming and surfing. The original location of the club sat exactly where Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort does today.”
Outrigger Waikiki is also host to a cultural surf program called “Surfers in Residence,” a unique monthly program for guests of Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort featuring professional surfers and/or watermen and their families “in residence” who “talk story” with guests and ultimately head out for a surf session if they choose.
Duke’s Day – August 24, 2020
Duke Kahanamoku would be turning 130 years old on Aug. 24, 2020. Traditionally, Duke’s birthday week would be brimming with Duke’s OceanFest activities in Waikiki, but this year the celebration is both virtual and global. Duke’s OceanFest is challenging the world to celebrate Duke’s spirit by sharing aloha that day: catch a wave, swim a lap, flash a shaka, etc. – then post a photo or video on social media with the tag #DukesDay2020 and #DukesOceanFest. Outrigger Resorts is proud to be the exclusive hospitality partner for Duke’s Day 2020 and Duke’s OceanFest.
