Hilton Grand Vacations, the timeshare division of Hilton Worldwide, began sales last week of The Grand Islander by Hilton Grand Vacations, which is under construction at the Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort.
Developed by Blackstone, the new 418-unit tower will be adjacent to the Tapa Tower along Kalia Road. Sales are expected to be brisk for the project, which will be Hilton’s eighth timeshare resort in Hawaii.
“We’re experiencing high occupancy and continued strong demand for our timeshare properties in Hawaii,” said Bryan Klum, executive vice president Asia/Pacific, Hilton Grand Vacations. “For our Members, Oahu remains a highly popular destination, and we believe The Grand Islander will provide an exceptional vacation experience for those owners.”
The project is slated for completion in early 2017. Prices at the 37-story tower will start at $29,800 for full week vacation ownership of a one-bedroom suite. A week in a two-bedroom suite will retail for $43,600 and up.
“When it opens, The Grand Islander will be the newest and most luxurious timeshare resort in Waikiki,” Klum said. “It will be a wonderful addition to the Hilton Hawaiian Village and we are confident that our members will enjoy the resort’s natural design and thoughtful amenities. The Grand Islander will serve as an ideal home base for those who want to be an islander, from first-time visitors to travelers who visit Waikiki year after year.”
