Aqua Bamboo & Spa in Waikiki Completes $2.5 Million in Upgrades and Offers a "Bamboo Renewal" Introductory Special

To celebrate the $2.5 million renovation upgrade of its guest rooms and public areas, a special rate is currently available to re-introduce the hotel to travelers.

Waikiki, HI, November 18, 2008 --( Aqua Hotels & Resorts announced the 94-room Aqua Bamboo & Spa has completed a $2.5 million renovation upgrade of its guest rooms and public areas. All work was accomplished with a minimum of guest discomfort.

“To celebrate the grand renewal of this very popular Waikiki boutique hotel, Aqua is offering a special rate to introduce this lovely resort to consumers” said Elizabeth Churchill, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Aqua.

‘Bamboo Renewal’ introductory special
Aqua’s ‘Bamboo Renewal” introductory rate starts at $110 per night, single or double occupancy. It is offered on a space available basis until December 21, 2008 and there is no minimum room night requirement. As an added value, guests booking the special also receive a $25 AquaSPA coupon per stay at the hotel.

“While some guests may be new to having spa treatments, I highly recommend they use the coupon and take full advantage of at least one AquaSPA massage therapy during their visit. Our experienced therapists are sure to convert them into future spa fans,” added Churchill.

Refurbishments and upgrades at the Aqua Bamboo & Spa are immediately noticeable as they start at the porte cochere where a beautiful and subtle cascading water feature greets arriving guests and sets the tone for their stay at this stylish hideaway.

Inner Sanctuary
Guests familiar with Aqua Bamboo & Spa will appreciate how the Asian-inspired lobby has been tastefully reappointed with new furnishings and reconfigured to allow for a much more open feel. As you would expect from its ‘inner sanctuary’ reference, the ambience remains casually elegant and inviting.

The inner sanctuary is also the location of the complimentary 24-hour coffee and tea service. The popular surfboard rack is also available for guest use.

Outer Sanctuary
Although just a short 1.5 blocks to Waikiki Beach, guests love the hotel’s sunny and lush outer sanctuary. The salt-water swimming pool has been upgraded with new tile and the addition of teak furniture. Earlier this year, the beautiful black-rock waterfall at the pool’s edge was completed and a thatched-roof cabana was added.

The outer sanctuary is also where daily complimentary Continental breakfast is served and for guests starting their Oahu excursions early, ”Breakfast 2 Go", can be arranged. It is in this peaceful and relaxing outdoor setting where guests will also find the AquaSPA, sauna, jet spa and barbeque grill.

Guest rooms and suites
The majority of the renovation expenditures were assigned to upgrading the guest rooms and suites at Aqua Bamboo & Spa. Each unit has been completely painted and refurbished to include a new bathroom – vanity, mirror, sink, fixtures, etc. and kitchen appliances – ceramic cook top, microwave, under counter refrigerator, etc. All units have new AquaBLISS beds with pillow-top mattresses, linens, draperies, tile and case goods.

All new lightening fixtures, dressers, nightstands, small dining tables and chairs have also been installed and rooms feature 32” LCD televisions.

Guests booking the Aqua Bamboo & Spa have a wide selection of room categories to choose from including several elegantly appointed suites and a penthouse – which are favorite choices for families or couples looking for the spaciousness and conveniences of a home environment.

The ‘Bamboo Renewal’ special cannot be combined with any other offer. For reservations, see your preferred travel agent or call Aqua toll free at 1-866-406-2782.
