WAIKIKI, Hawaii, Nov. 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The Twin Finpart of Highgate’s Hawaii collection of hotels, opened today along the iconic coastline of Waikiki on Oahu. Following a multi-million-dollar renovation, the hotel will serve as the heartbeat of the destination and a gathering place for guests to discover local music, art and a lasting connection with the community.

The rooms include thoughtful touches such as custom printed surf ponchos and a custom Twin Fin-branded phone mount from Tentikle so guests can capture their entire Hawaii experience from start to finish.
