Conserving Resources

As long-term caretakers of historic hotels, we take conservation seriously. We know that water is precious. That energy must be used wisely. And that we must always look for new opportunities to use resources wisely.

In Hawaii, Kyo-ya properties feature indigenous plant species in our landscaping which require less water. All our hotels feature SMART thermostats, connected to door locks, to maximize efficiency. Our properties also utilize low flow plumbing faucets and toilets to minimize water usage and energy efficient LED lightbulbs that reduce energy needs.

Since 2008, the four hotels in our Waikiki Collection have:


reduced water use.


decreased energy use.


increased recycling weight.
