Getaway Homes: Contemporary Island Living on O‘ahu

Imagine gazing out floor-to-ceiling windows as towering palm trees sway in the breeze and the Pacific sparkles below. Or digging your toes in the sand along the world-famous Waikiki Beach with a mai tai in hand at golden hour. This (and so much more) is the everyday escape that awaits at The Launiu Ward Village, O‘ahu's newest luxury residence coming early 2025.

Nestled within the exclusive, master-planned enclave of Ward Village — named the “Best-Planned Community in the United States” by Architectural Digest — The Launiu merges contemporary architecture with modern sophistication across its 40 stories. Residents can choose from a mix of flowing studio, one-, two- and three bedrooms, all outfitted with oak floors, quartzite counters, floor-to-ceiling windows and juliet balconies. Shared amenities spread over two floors, from meticulously crafted pools perfect for both relaxation and exercise to an array of thoughtfully appointed clubrooms and decks, a state-of-the-art fitness center, outdoor kitchens and cabanas and so much more.

Step outside and you’ll find that endless Waikiki treasures await. Beach walks to Queen’s. Fresh poke bowls in the bustle of Chinatown. Snorkeling in the crystal clear waters of Hanauma Bay. Rich arts and culture peppered throughout downtown Honolulu. It’s all here, from historic hikes to hidden foodie haunts to surf lessons from the pros. Yet perhaps best of all, Honolulu’s most coveted community is right at your doorstep. Spanning 60 acres, Ward Village is home to world-class restaurants, curated shops and boutiques, sprawling green spaces and, of course, thoughtfully designed residences.

For that reason, returning home always brings a new delight. Maybe a private dinner on your balcony taking in an epic sunset over Diamond Head. Or even a late-night soak in the hot tub after an action-packed day of exploring the island.

With exclusive move-in opportunities available, now’s the time to experience The Launiu’s modern homage to island living. Luckily, Smith & Berg Partners can connect you to available listings before it’s too late — get in touch today to make your Hawaii getaway home a reality.
