More Additions To Kapolei’s Ka Makana Ali‘i Shopping Center

West Oahu residents have been hearing a lot about Kapolei’s future in Ka Makana Ali‘i, and DeBartolo Development (which heads the process) has announced two additions to the Ka Makana Ali‘i family.

Hampton Hotels will open its first hotel in Hawaii, which is the only state without a Hampton hotel to date, at Ka Makana Ali‘i. According to DeBartolo Development, the 175-key globally recognized Hampton Inn & Suites hotel will “make it easier for kama‘aina and visitors alike to enjoy all the area has to offer, including the extensive shopping, dining and entertainment options …”

“We’re excited to bring our friendly and authentic culture of Hamptonality to both business and leisure travelers visiting beautiful Oahu,” stated Hilton Worldwide’s global head Phil Cordell.

DeBartolo Development also has announced the addition of a state-of-theart luxury cinema, courtesy of Consolidated Theatres. Eight screens will call the new facility home, and the new location at Ka Makana Ali‘i marks the theater chain’s ninth since 2001.

DeBartolo also added that this new theater will feature the “latest in cinematic technology and incorporate elements that celebrate Hawaii’s unique lifestyle.”

In addition to the eight wall-to-wall-screens, Ka Makana Ali‘i cinema will feature plush, oversized, full-electric recliner seats and digital projection by Barco, a leader in digital cinema technology.

No theater would be complete with snacks, and popcorn and soda concessions will be joined by a locally inspired menu created by Bruce Seidel and Chef Santos Loo of Food Network.

“Our new theater at Ka Makana Ali‘i will provide the West Oahu community with a world-class cinematic experience, from plush reclining seats to a delicious, locally inspired menu,” stated Ellen Cotter, COO of Consolidated Theatres.

“We’re proud of our nearly 100-year history as a kama‘aina company, and look forward to continuing to serve movie-goers at this new state-of-the-art facility.”

Future tenants also include anchor store Macy’s, and clothing stores Forever 21, H&M and three Gap Inc. brands.
