Much has changed at the Hilton Hawaiian Village since its origins as Niumalu Hotel in 1928. Even in the 1950’s most of the complex was thatched-roof guest cottages with one modern 15-story tower. As of 2021, I counted eight substantial towers according to Google Maps.
The tower on the right is the Rainbow Tower, which I showcased yesterday. I think there are a couple more high-rises beyond the frame to the left.
In the foreground is the Duke Kahanamoku lagoon. An ideal spot for small children. Separated from the ocean, it’s basically a pool with sand. I always assumed this was only for Hilton guests. But I was wrong. While it’s maintained by Hilton, it is open to the public.
