HONOLULU - Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort has completed its seven-month, $4.3 million Tapa Pool rejuvenation project. The work includes the expansion of the swimming pool's deck space by more than twenty percent, retiling of the existing pool, the addition of water features in the pool and the addition of extensive tropical foliage.

Designed by Group 70 International, the pool's open deck area now includes 127 chaise lounges and 3,000 square feet of natural stone surrounded by lush landscaping. The pool has been completely retiled with Oceanside Glasstile, a sustainable product that uses more than 86 percent recycled material. Because of its handcrafted nature and iridescent colors, the glass tile has created a stunning look to the pool.

"We are thrilled to unveil the beautiful new Tapa Pool and its amenities," said Jerry Gibson, area vice president of Hilton Hawaii. "The pool and its surrounding deck will be a nice focal point for the resort and I'm sure will be very popular for our guests."

Guests at the Tapa Pool can enjoy the live Hawaiian music offered nightly at the adjacent Tapa Bar. Pool hours are 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.

The Tapa Pool is just one of five resort pools at Hilton Hawaiian Village, which include the 10,000 square-foot Super Pool, Paradise Pool with Waikiki's longest water slide, Kalia Pool and the private Alii Tower Pool. In addition, the five-acre Duke Kahanamoku Lagoon and white sand beach surrounding it is a treasure of the State of Hawaii that is the perfect place to rent kayaks for learn how to stand-up paddle.

Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort is Waikiki's only true destination resort, offering the perfect mix of exceptional resort accommodations and classic hospitality on Waikiki's widest stretch of beach. The resort features more than 90 shops and services, 16 restaurants, lounges and bars; and every Friday evening, it sets the stage for a celebration of Hawaiian culture and entertainment ending in a spectacular fireworks show.
