HILO HAWAII—Soul Community Planet announced the opening of its new SCP Hilo Hotel. The 138-room property brings SCP’s unique brand of holistic hospitality to the Hawaiian Islands. The hotel now is accepting room reservations with the special introductory Aloha SCP offer with rates starting at $245 per night for a limited time only.
“We are excited to bring Soul Community Planet to one of the most beautiful islands in the world. The new SCP Hilo Hotel is a wonderful destination in its own right and is an ideal base for adventure-seekers and explorers looking to experience all the Island of Hawaii has to offer, from the waterfalls of the spectacular Hamakua Coast to Volcanoes National Park, to the town of Hilo itself, with its rich Hawaiian culture. Like our other venues, the SCP Hilo Hotel emphasizes our casual, eco-friendly vibe and highlights our healthy, kind, green core values,” said Soul Community Planet Co-Founder and CEO, Ken Cruse.
Guests will experience Hilo’s unique island hospitality and rich Hawaiian culture throughout the property from the newly renovated open-air lobby and new Provisions market to the pool, pool deck, grounds and other public areas. Hawaiian culture has been purposely infused throughout the property with quotes, murals and artwork painted by local artist Brandy Serikaku.
Spirit of Aloha
“We look forward to sharing the island’s welcoming culture of aloha and true sense of ‘ohana with our guests. SCP’s commitment to leaving the world a better place will resonate with both the Hilo community and island visitor. I am confident our guests will feel a deeper respect, appreciation and connection with the Hawaiian Islands, which perfectly embodies the spirit of aloha in full circle,” said SCP Hilo General Manager Breeani Sumera-Lee.
SCP Hilo also brings its other unique brand programs, amenities and services including:
- Peaceful Rooms mindfully designed for ultimate relaxation and restoration, providing space free of the usual distractions (TVs, radios). Other amenities include yoga mat, meditation pillow, sound machine, a selection of essential oils, diffuser, and calming teas.
- Fair Trade Pricing allowing guests to determine the price they pay at check-out based on the quality of their experience
- SCP Provisions market, offering healthy, plant-forward, fresh, immune-boosting, locally sourced food, and drink.
- SCP Fit room includes TRX system, Peloton bikes, and space for yoga, meditation and stretching.
- Coming Soon: SCP Commons, open, communal coworking space for guests, tailored for the remote workforce who have the flexibility to be able to work in places like Hawaii.
Additionally, with SCP’s Every Stay Does Good promise, each time a guest chooses to stay at an SCP Hotel, the guest becomes part of a community driving positive change in the world. Through each stay, SCP provides one adolescent with well-being tools to build life-long mental health skills through WE Well-being (Soul); lights a home of one family caring for a critically ill child for 24 hours through Miracles for Kids (Community), and plants one tree in unnaturally deforested areas through One Tree Planted (Planet).
The SCP Hilo is home to the new SCP Pristine Makai program in partnership with the Hawaii Wildlife Fund (HWF). Through its Pristine Makai program, every time a guest chooses to stay at the new SCP Hilo Hotel, SCP will support HWF’s efforts to keep the Island’s beaches magnificent and pure by facilitating HWF’s recovery of approximately 2.2 pounds of marine debris that has found its way from the Great Pacific Garbage Patch to Hawaii’s remote southern beaches (this is roughly equivalent to the amount of consumer waste generated per day during a typical hotel stay).
Chuen Yee from Honolulu-based MCYIA Design, who also oversaw earlier renovations of the open-air lobby, pool, pool deck and other public areas in 2020 and 2021, is overseeing the design of the SCP Hilo Hotel’s new guestrooms, which will be implemented over the course of 2021.
In addition to the Aloha SCP offer, special Kama’aina rates also are available for locals planning staycations. For more information visit https://scphotel.com/hilo/.
