Posted July 11, 2014
WAIKIKI, HONOLULU, HAWAII – June 11, 2014 – Sheraton Waikiki proudly presents the world’s first permanent 3D pool mapping light show “Helumoa.” Located at resort’s Helumoa Playground next to restaurant RumFire, two different light shows will be begin nightly at 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. open to resort guests and general public for free admission. At a price tag of $1.3 million-dollars, the first-ever 3D pool mapping digital storybook was created to provide guests with a contemporary way to learn about Hawaii’s deep rooted culture and history.

Inspired by Sheraton Waikiki’s commitment to perpetuate Hawaiian culture, the resort hired the services of production company PointCloud to create two projection video light shows using their latest Raylight4D technology featuring a 3D mapping system. Helumoa Playground will be used as a storyboard for the energized 3D pool mapping light show featuring graphic figures and images projected onto the nearly 200,000 gallon superpool. Traditionally 3D mapping technology uses building surfaces as a projection canvas so reflections from Helumoa’s superpool will add a new component of reality to the animation resulting in more vibrant and saturated colors.
The world’s first 3D pool mapping light show will be projected onto over 7,503 square-foot of pool canvas featuring two unique light show stories including “Helumoa – the birth of Hawaii” and “Helumoa – the legendary story of Waikiki.” Kicking off each evening’s light fantastic is “Helumoa – the birth of Hawaii” beginning with a lively display of hot lava flowing from volcanic eruptions depicting the creation of Hawaiian Islands thousands of years ago. The spectacular show will continue to illustrate how the art of ancient hula were native Hawaiians way of storytelling and sharing the story of ancient Hawaiian na aumakua or ancestor deities. The second 3D pool mapping light show, “Helumoa – the legendary story of Waikiki” will illustrate the early days of Waikiki starting an introduction to the ancient Hawaiian water sport of surfing and the rise of two of Hawaii’s most historical resorts, Moana Surfrider, A Westin Resort & Spa which opened in 1901 and The Royal Hawaiian, a Luxury Collection Resort which opened in 1927.

“Sheraton Waikiki continues to focus on three core values including contemporary, energized, and Hawaiian,” said General Manager Kelly Sanders. “This first-ever 3D pool mapping light show encompasses all three values shaped to enhance our guests experience while spreading the Aloha Spirit and Hawaiian culture.”

Another key goal of Sheraton Waikiki’s new 3D pool mapping light show is to provide an additional option to personalize group experiences. The million-dollar 3D pool mapping light show will be available to groups or VIP arrivals to incorporate a logo or a specific image request. “Our ‘Helumoa’ 3D pool mapping light show is a first of its kind in the world; making it truly a unique option for groups to customize events and create a wow-factor for attendees,” said Sanders. For $75,000, groups are able to work with PointCloud Media to create and develop a customized 3D pool mapping light show different from the resort’s regular choreographed videos.

PointCloud Media is a full-service production company and assisted in pioneering the art of 3D building projections in the United States. The company worked with Sheraton Waikiki to come up with creative ideas for the world’s first 3D pool mapping videos including direction, animation, shooting, and additional of the post-production special effects to the finished piece.

Posted November 21, 2012
Multi-Million Dollar Upgrades Made to the Sheraton Waikiki, Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa, Sheraton Kauai Resort and Sheraton Kona Resort & Spa at Keauhou Bay
STAMFORD, Conn.--Nov. 20, 2012-- Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. (NYSE: HOT) today announced that its largest brand, Sheraton Hotels & Resorts, and its owners invested more than $230 million to refurbish its four iconic Hawaiian properties. The large-scale, multi-year project was completed with the recent unveiling of the Sheraton Kona Resort and meets the increased demand for high-quality accommodations as business and leisure travel to the Hawaiian Islands continues to grow. The revitalization projects include the $188 million renewal of the Sheraton Waikiki, the $6.5 million renovation of the Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa, a $16 million upgrade to the Sheraton Kauai Resort, and a $20 million refresh of the Sheraton Kona Resort & Spa at Keauhou Bay.

Starwood has spent the last few years renovating and rebuilding one of the hotel industry’s most iconic brands and the Sheraton brand now stands taller than ever with the strongest portfolio in its history. The brand is gaining market share, RevPAR continues to rise, guest satisfaction scores are the highest in the brand’s history and likelihood to return, likelihood to recommend and meeting planner and associate engagement scores are also at all-time highs – signaling that guests are taking notice and rediscovering the new Sheraton.

Leading Hotel in Oahu Celebrates Comprehensive Renovation

The Sheraton has reaffirmed its place as the leader in its class among Hawaii hotels with the completion of its nearly $188 million renovation of 1,636 rooms with a theme of “contemporary Hawaiian sophistication.” The renewal starts at beach level and reaches to the top of the 31-floor structure, offering new guest rooms and suites, redesigned public areas with new landscaping and pools, renewed convention facilities, new and exhilarating restaurants and bars, and new back-of-house equipment to increase service efficiency.

The resort introduced to Waikiki the first infinity-edge pool and the only oceanfront adult-only pool complete with a swim-up bar. Guests can enjoy family fun at the Helumoa Playground , which offers a 70-foot-long waterslide, two large whirlpools, and chaise water sunning benches spread around a 12,500-square-foot area. With the recent grand opening of the million-dollar Leahi Club, Sheraton Waikiki is home to Hawaii’s only Sheraton Club Lounge. It offers guests breathtaking panoramic views of Diamond Head and the Pacific, first-class service, and culinary creations with matchless local flair.

Multi-Million Dollars Renews Maui Resort

In December 2011, the Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa , anchored by the legendary Pu‘u Keka‘a (Black Rock), introduced a new sense of Hawaiian luxury to the Ka‘anapali Resort with the redesign and renovation of its guest rooms. The $6.5 million renewal introduced warm Hawaiian colors, textiles and prints to the legendary location of the 508-room resort. Incorporating traditional Hawaiian artwork, light hues, plush carpeting and drapery, and new tropical furnishings the resort has created a comfortable setting for guests. With wireless Internet now in every guest room, the resort now offers an elevated in-room experience that enables guests to remain connected with what matters most.

Sheraton Upgrades Resort Located on Hawaii’s Famous Poipu Beach

Sheraton Kauai Resort , nestled into 20 acres along Kauai’s world-renowned Poipu Beach, completed a $16 million revitalization in April.

The lobby opens into a new, open-air Ocean Courtyard that is elegantly landscaped and adorned with tiki torches. It features six intimate seating areas, three of which have fire pits. An added breezeway provides direct access to the resort’s newly expanded and tiered Ocean Pool, lined with eight private, vibrant bungalows sitting just above the pristine shore.

For those seeking the consummate venue for meetings, banquets or special celebrations, the new Luana Kai room overlooks Poipu Beach and is the only oceanfront indoor function space on Kauai.

The Big Island’s Landmark Hotel Completes Extensive Floor-to-Ceiling Renovation

The newly renamed Sheraton Kona Resort & Spa (formerly Sheraton Keauhou Bay Resort & Spa) completed a $20 million resort renewal in September 2012. The Kona Coast’s most iconic resort is well on its way to re-establishing itself as the crown jewel of the community. Considerable resources have been invested not only in physical revitalization but also into efforts to better connect guests with Keauhou’s rich history by offering more meaningful, culturally authentic experiences.

Significant enhancements to guestrooms, public areas and meeting spaces include culturally inspired designs by Hawaii designer Sig Zane. A new lobby arrival experience and Flying Fish activity outfitters complement and add to the fun, excitement and ultimate experience that many already enjoy. New oceanfront dining concepts include Rays on the Bay, touted as the only restaurant in the world with manta ray viewing. With panoramic oceanfront sunset dinners, Rays on the Bay highlights dishes embodying the best farm-and-ocean-to-table tradition.
