Sustaining Responsible Operations:

We are committed to reducing our environmental impact and have taken measures in water reduction, saving hundreds of gallons of water per day. Water bottle fill stations can be found in public areas and on each floor, these fill stations decrease wasted water by 100% compared to fountains and all guests are provided reusable water bottles upon check-in.

Sustaining Responsible Operations:

Our food waste reduction initiative, via on-site composting, allows food to go back into the soil, decreasing our need for industrially manufactured and commercially transported fertilizer, while improving the ecological diversity and moisture retention of our soil. Other waste reduction initiatives include mulching 100% of tree trimmings and putting it back into our landscaping, this not only bypasses landfills, but increases our soil’s health and moisture retention.

Empower Through Opportunity

Hospitality is one of Hawaii’s largest industries; and we play an integral part in workplace development. We partner with local schools and nonprofits to ensure workplace readiness and access to opportunity, focusing on the youth of Hawaii Island that are interested in exploring the culinary arts.
