This classic Hawaiian hotel with striking views of Diamond Head near the beach of Waikiki was built in 1957 by famed American industrialist Henry J. Kaiser, and was originally named Kaiser's Hawaiian Village. Kaiser also built a nearby geodesic dome auditorium, the Kaiser Aluminum Dome, where some Exotica classics were recorded. Martin Denny played regularly in the Shell Bar, and for a couple of years Arthur Lyman played here with him. Hilton later purchased the hotel, and still owns it today.
