Rooftop Aquaponic Garden

With a commitment to sustainability and providing the freshest ingredients in all of our dishes, our culinary team has created the only hotel rooftop aquaponic garden on Oahu. Our urban garden produces crisp butter lettuce, lilikoi, edible flowers, garlic chives, chili peppers, yuzu and more. Our fresh produce can be enjoyed through dining at 100 Sails Restaurant & Bar, Hinana Bar and the Club Lounge.

An array of locally sourced produce from swiss chard, hearts of palm, micro greens, tomatoes, romaine lettuce, bananas, radish and mixed greens. An array of locally sourced produce from tomatoes, micro greens, swiss chard, turnips, carrots, radish, bananas and romaine lettuce.

Malama Hawaii

Prince Waikiki is proud to support and partner with Sustainable Coastlines, a local nonprofit organization that works hard to inspire better consumer behaviors and continued coastal stewardship through cleanups, education and more. By keeping waterways clean and the coastlines clear of trash, this important initative allows native flora and marine life to thrive, while also supporting the local ecosystem.

As a guest of Prince Waikiki, you can book our Malama Hawaii package, in partnership with Sustainable Coastlines, and receive a DIY beach clean-up kit to support this effort. The Malama Hawaii package includes every fourth night free and a commemorative sustainable gift.

– Guest can use rental bicycle “biki” and electric scooter “GoX” for eco-friendly transportation option.
– High-efficiency thermostat system – reduced energy consumption when rooms/spaces are not in use.
– High-efficiency cooling towers called Merasys Energy Management Controls limit wasting water.
– We are monitoring CO2 levels at self and valet parking with high technology system to run the ventilation fan motor. We used to run 24/7 but now we only run 1 hour per hour.

Make a Difference Program

In efforts to support our associates in giving back to the community, each associate can take a Make a Difference day to participate in community service activities.

Since 2017 Prince Waikiki has partnered with Anuenue School to have students experience working at a hotel and a mentor program. Our associates also lend a helping hand at Anuenue School through book translations to Olelo Hawaii (Hawaiian language) and working in the loi kalo (taro patch).
