The Outrigger Voyage

A Platinum Anniversary

For seven decades, Outrigger Hotels and Resorts has captured the hearts of travelers from around the globe with our distinct style of hospitality that unites the guest, the host and the place to create a uniquely immersive and engaging experience. 

Since its first property opening in Waikiki in 1947, Outrigger had the vision of sharing the spirit of aloha with every guest. As tribute to its core founding values and 70-year milestone, Outrigger is hosting a year of celebrations, promotions and giveaways - starting with Founders Day on Sept. 29, 2017.

Like the ancient voyagers who gave us our name, we were born with a passion for discovery.

In 1929, Roy and Estelle Kelley arrived in Hawai'i with little more than a few dollars in their pockets and a lot of determined optimism. They saved, invested, started a family and 18 years later built their first hotel in Waikiki.

Today, Outrigger Hotels and Resorts continues to prosper, operating premier resorts and hotel properties throughout the Hawaiian Islands, Asia-Pacific and Indian Ocean. Foresight and hard work have steadily directed the company forward; warmth and generosity have continually guided its success.

Today Outrigger is owned and operated by KSL Capital Partners, LLC., one of the world's leading investors in hospitality. KSL is committed to continue the strong legacy and tradition that the Kelley family has built.
