Conjure an image of Waikiki in your mind’s eye and
it will most likely be of beach attractions,
bustling streets and tall buildings.
Our story begins long before any of that existed,
when Waikiki offered healing springs and solitude.
The Waikiki of old was known for the cold waters of its healing springs.
But the nobility, also came here to luxuriate in a pool of warm water.
It was called Loko ‘O‘o, that is natural springs in Hawaiian.
