With its signature Japanese-inspired architecture, vintage low-rise charm and on-the-water setting, Diamond Head Ambassador is a Gold Coast landmark. Nestled against Kapiolani Park at the foot of Diamond Head Crater, the Ambassador offers the upscale lifestyle of East Honolulu with the excitement of an edge-of-Waikiki setting.
This sunny landscape has always been highly prized. Once dotted with Hawaiian temples, by the late 1800s its coastline had transformed into stately homes and fashionable bungalow hotels that attracted guests such as Robert Louis Stevenson. In the late 1950s and 1960s, an elite collection of boutique hotels, condos and private clubs rose along the ocean, lined by a protective seawall and pocket-sized golden beaches.
Amid this row of high-rises, the six-story, Japanese-style Diamond Head Ambassador co-op condo is a unique gem. It features 89 studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom units in three wings, which link via graceful arching bridges and together frame an oceanfront swimming pool and manicured gardens. The Ambassador is well secured with locked entry and 24-hour security patrol, and also includes a library, laundry room and extra storage. Apartments offer views ranging from Diamond Head and the park to direct oceanfront.
