Espacio The Jewel of Waikiki is opening on Waikiki Beach, Hawaii on September 7. The boutique hotel offers just nine multi-bedroom suites—each occupying an individual floor.

Personal butlers are available to guests who can request, for example, advance copies of Hawaiian literature, private viewings of art, culinary experiences featuring uncommon, sought-after ingredients, and private screenings with famed filmmakers.

In each 2,250-square-foot, three-bedroom, three-bathroom suite, iPads control the lighting, temperature and provide location-based technology for personal service requests and concierge recommendations. Espacio has no set check-in or checkout times, making it possible for guests to arrive and depart at their own preference. Additional amenities include access to a luxury fleet of cars and in-suite chef-service on demand.
