Last week, Hilton Grand Vacations began sales of The Grand Islander by Hilton Grand Vacations Club. The Grand Islander has been under construction since June of this year and will be the newest tower at the Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort.
The new 418-unit tower is being developed by the Blackstone Group L.P. and will be adjacent to the Tapa Tower along Kalia Road. Hilton expects sales to go quickly for the project, which will be the company’s eighth Hawaii timeshare resort.
“We’re experiencing high occupancy and continued strong demand for our timeshare properties in Hawaii,” said Bryan Klum, executive vice president Asia/Pacific, Hilton Grand Vacations. “For our Members, Oahu remains a highly popular destination, and we believe The Grand Islander will provide an exceptional vacation experience for those owners.”
The project is scheduled to finish in early 2017. The Grand Islander is intended to be a modern reflection of Hawaii and will feature elegant one-, two-, and three-bedroom suites and penthouses. Each well-equipped unit will offer amenities including full kitchens, spacious living and dining areas, and private bedrooms.
Prices at the 37-story tower will start at $29,800 for full-week vacation ownership of a one-bedroom suite, while a week in a two-bedroom suite will retail for $43,600 and higher.
“When it opens, The Grand Islander will be the newest and most luxurious timeshare resort in Waikiki,” Klum stated. “It will be a wonderful addition to the Hilton Hawaiian Village and we are confident that our members will enjoy the resort’s natural design and thoughtful amenities. The Grand Islander will serve as an ideal home base for those who want to be an islander, from first-time visitors to travelers who visit Waikiki year after year.”
