Waikiki has reinvented itself in the last 10 years as the place to be—not just for visitors, but also for young, upwardly mobile residents wanting a lifestyle that puts them at the center of it all. Allure Waikiki was built in 2009 with them in mind and was an instant success. It has also proven popular for those wanting a seasonal or periodic home in the Islands that meets a higher standard but still puts them near the beach, which is only two blocks away.
Located on the quieter western edge of Waikiki, Allure Waikiki joins the neighborhood’s most upscale residential towers. Three blocks down, along famed Kalakaua Avenue, Waikiki’s “Luxury Row” shopping stretch includes Gucci, Tiffany, Coach, Chanel and other top names; a block further the additional international brands continue, interspersed with a festive mix of national and local shops and restaurants.
The 35-story, 300-unit luxury high-rise features state-of-the-art style and amenities. The ground floor opens onto an elegant lobby with 18-foot-high ceilings, and serene gardens with Hawaiian plants, ponds and a fountain. A 20,000-square-foot recreation deck on the sixth floor includes an infinity pool, spa and sundeck, plus a fitness center and clubroom with a fully equipped kitchen and recreation terrace with barbecue grills.
Units all come with balconies and floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall windows for sweeping views of the city, mountains and ocean, and each is soundproofed. One-bedroom, one-and-a-half bath units offer 833 square feet of interior space; two bedroom, two baths range between 951 and 1,381 square feet; three bedroom, two baths range between 1,611 and 1,633 square feet; and three bedroom, two and half baths offer either 1,361 or 1,409 square feet. The building also comes with assigned resident parking plus guest parking, and residential management services are provided by a professional general manager.
