Great use of surfboards

The concept of The Modern Honolulu is to be an urban retreat, an oasis in the middle of Honolulu, catering to a laid-back surf culture. Arriving guest are greeted by this great surfboard display by Herbie Fletcher to set the mood.  Architects George Yabu and Glenn Pushelberg along with landscape designer Deborah Nevins were successful in creating a resort like any other. Chic but laid back, barefoot luxury at its best, with understated touches of elegance and acclaimed service . Guest are greeted  with views of  the glittering skyline of Waikiki, ocean view and stunning sunsets  or  yachts moored in the harbor.  One really cool and unique feature in the lobby is a beautiful bookshelf  full of warm touches of books, Hawaiian memorabilia, coral and other shells and soft lighting, but the coolest thing is that midday the bookcase rotates to reveal the swanky lounge area, complete with a full bar and comfortable seating.

Bookshelves set the stage

To continue the urban resort concept, The Modern features polished interiors fused with a organic touches such as a living plant wall as a backdrop to one of the sitting areas.
