The Hokua, meaning “crest of the wave” in Hawaiian, is one of the finest residential high rise condominiums in Honolulu and was completed in early 2006. Made from poured concrete with double glazed floor to ceiling glass windows, the Hokua was developed Kobayashi and McNaughton, who were also responsible for other very well regarded buildings such as Capitol Place and One Ala Moana.
Upon arriving at the Hokua there is a port cochere off of Queen Street with short term guest parking in the circular driveway. From there, residents and guests are welcomed into the elegant and stylish lobby that is staffed 24/7 by residential specialists offering concierge services. There is also extensive validated guest parking in the 1st floor of the parking garage. Apart from the ground floor lobby, the Hokua has 2 floors of commercial space including trendy restaurants, a bank and more.
The Hokua’s amenities, the bulk of which are found on the private 3rd floor recreation level, are some of the best in the city – whenever I visit I feel like just I don’t want to leave. One of the developer’s goals in building the Hokua was to accommodate residents in such a way that they do not miss benefits of a single family home while living in a condominium – I feel they succeeded and then some. Large parties can be accommodated in the conference room or the Ocean Terrace room which comes complete with a caterer’s kitchen; while less formal gatherings can be held at one 5 outdoor covered cabana areas of varying sizes. The cabanas come with gas BBQ grills and are large enough to accommodate between 15 to 50 guests, depending on the configuration.
For exercise, there is a tennis court as well as an extensive state-of-the-art gym that includes all the equipment you would expect to find in a high-end private fitness club including: free weights, treadmills, massage rooms, a large flat screen TV for playing exercise videos and more. Kids get to play safely on the playground with special rubberized flooring. Pets can get exercise too as they run free in one of the two gated pet parks – one for big dogs and one for small. For relaxing there is an ocean-view infinity-edge pool, hot tub, shower and grassy lounge area. Another feature rarely found elsewhere in a Honolulu are the 5 guest suites on the recreation deck level that owners can reserve for their guests for overnight stays.
