Outrigger Reef on the Beach Hotel Review: Next to Fort DeRussy Beach, this Outrigger hotel in previous years had been less distinguished than its sister down the beach, the Outrigger Waikiki. Now the queen of the Outrigger empire, this non-smoking property underwent a complete $110 million makeover to create an elegant oceanfront haven offering a commitment to Hawaiian culture. The common areas feature comfortable furnishings and unique Hawaiian art, while spacious guest rooms and suites boast superb island décor and an array of contemporary amenities. Be sure to visit the poolside Kani Ka Pila Grille, where island entertainment is featured every night from 6 to 9 p.m. The property's highlights include its oceanfront location and full service amenities, including an on-site car rental and complimentary day spa and fitness center. The complete bundle of freebies includes high-speed Internet access, daily local newspaper, a variety of cultural activities and direct-dial local and long-distance phone calls to the U.S. mainland and Canada. Also offered at no charge to registered guests: twice-weekly Hawaiian vow renewal ceremonies on the beach.
