Ho'o ma'e ma'e is the Hawaiian word to make clean, disinfect, purify, and in the Hawaiian language can take on many meanings including clean house, spiritual cleanliness, clean body and mind, and pure spirit. When we approach one another with the pure intent of helping, and when we maintain a clean house and personal cleanliness, we are treating each other with respect and dignity and preventing each other from getting sick. It is these types of cleanliness that we all need to maintain in our dealings with one another. Ho'o ma'e ma'e throughout our entire hotel property is our highest priority when it comes to protecting our valued guests, hotel team, and the Hawaiian community. That's why we are making our cleaning standards and practices transparent so you can have peace of mind when you stay with us. As we all adapt to the new "normal" created by the current coronavirus pandemic we continue to work on and develop enhanced cleaning procedures based on official health and safety guidelines. As the state releases new directives for safe re-opening and our policies adapt, we will keep you informed of all the latest changes as they are implemented.
