The Ritz-Carlton Residences is the hot new place to live in Waikiki, and the ultra-luxury condominium tower is redefining residential lifestyle in Honolulu. In a sophisticated world that seems reserved for vacationing, this is one vacation you can live in every day.

These fully furnished units are as high-end and efficient as possible, including oak hardwood flooring, white Tibetan marble bathroom counters, and Miele appliances. On the property, residences will enjoy full access to a sparkling infinity-edge swimming pool and a full-service spa pool with an adult-only section. Residents can get fit in the state-of-the-art fitness center, or enjoy the music in the entertainment lounge.

When it comes to food and drinks, this development does not disappoint. The Ritz-Carlton includes a world-famous gourmet market and café as well as a highly praised sushi restaurant on-site. For a ritzy meal without the commute, check out the tower's all-day restaurant, where residents are rewarded with a beautiful ocean view. 

The Ritz-Carlton at Waikiki Beach, just off Kuhio Avenue, will house 324 units ranging from 450 to 1,712 square feet. Prices for these lofty, lavish condos start at $500,000 for cozy studio layouts and top $15 million for deluxe suites. Studio and one-, two-, and three-bedroom layouts will be offered.

The Ritz-Carlton's neighborhood is defined by Fort DeRussy Park and its beach, Kalakaua Avenue and its shops, and a good portion of downtown Waikiki. Residents will find endless options for daytime and nighttime activities, whether the attraction is dining, shopping, or playing. Virtually on the doorstep of the community will also be Luxury Row, a collection of world-renowned brands like Gucci, Chanel, Coach, and Hugo Boss all in one exciting shopping trip.

While construction on the tower is still ongoing and a second tower may be added, developers plan to premiere the development in early 2016
