DECK., situated on the 3rd floor of the Queen Kapiolani Hotel, features an unobstructed panoramic view of the iconic Diamond Head with lush greenery of Kapiolani Park against the blue ocean. Conveniently located east of Waikiki right in front of the Honolulu Zoo, the venue is laid out with a resort-like interior with a modern taste. DECK. keeps it fresh, incorporating locally sourced and sustainable ingredients wherever possible through partnerships with local farms, ranches, distilleries, and breweries. Along with the hotel, the main dining room was renovated in October 2018. With its easy access and great food, DECK. provides a perfect for lite island inspired faire surrounded by lush landscape and unforgettable views.
Deck.’s Leahi Lanai is a private outdoor space with a panoramic view of Diamond Head. As it is located in the easternmost area of Waikiki, it is the closest venue to enjoy the full visual impact of Diamond Head. Casual sofas and high tables can be set up from casual parties with a Hawaiian atmosphere to formal ones using a round table. With its breathtaking views, the space is often used for live concert events, commemorative photo sessions, and recording of TV programs. In addition, JTB Hawaii offers an original casual BBQ dinner party plan in the Lanai.
The Leahi Room is one of the few banquet rooms in Waikiki that offer a panoramic view of Diamond Head. The expansive banquet hall is complete with a wide window that lets in natural light and allows for more generous views of Diamond Head which connects to the outdoor terrace space, making guests feel the “Hawaii vibes” even indoors. The space is often used for meetings and exhibits but also special events such as weddings and fashion shows. For example, combining the adjacent Leahi Lanai, you can have an event with an outdoor welcome event space, move to an indoor presentation event, and head out to the lanai again for an after party. Hawaii is known for its fine weather but having an adjacent indoor space that can handle rainy weather is a big plus to be confident that the invited guests will have a great time.
