Hilton Hawaiian Village Completes Renovation of Tapa Ballroom

Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach ResortHilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort recently announced the completion of a $7 million renovation of its Tapa Conference Center, which includes the Tapa Ballroom, Palace Lounge, Honolulu Suites and Iolani Suites

The new 16,536-square-foot ballroom, which was completed last month, has a redesign inspired by patterns of Hawaiian tapa or kapa cloth expressed through color, images, textures, patterns and artwork by local artists.

The interior design was handled by Honolulu-based Pacific Asia Design Group, Inc., and reflects a balance between Hawaiian cultural art forms and a modernized environment. The design team conducted extensive research at Bishop Museum, the largest museum in the state and the premier natural and cultural history institution in the Pacific, and worked with local experts on traditional tapa to accurately represent the traditional patterns and colors.

New lighting, including dramatic ballroom chandeliers, incorporates a more natural approach. Organic grillwork patterns surround light fixtures and natural, earthy colors carry throughout the elevator lobby and Palace Lounge. 

Accents including natural-edge wood tables,coconut vases, organic woven textures, natural metals and wood finishes evoke the surroundings of ancient Hawaii. Bench seating throughout has recreated tapa carvings reminiscent of the tapa beating sticks used for printing on the bark cloth.
