Aloha Ambassadors
Hospitality Services

Program Overview

Aloha Ambassadors—highly visible in safety green shirts emblazoned with the WBIDA logo—serve as hosts of Waikiki each day, providing information, assistance and aloha to everyone they encounter. The Aloha Ambassadors extend hospitality from a stationary position at the police substation at Kuhio Beach Park, a kiosk at the Waikiki Beach Walk complex on Lewers Street, as well as by walking throughout the District. While on their daily tours of Waikiki, the Aloha Ambassadors are also alert to safety and security issues, and also monitor the videofeed from the CCTV security camera system along Kalakaua Avenue. WBIDA has retained Block-by-Block—a company that specializes in providing services for business improvement districts across the country—to operate the program.


Geographic Area of Responsibility
The Waikiki Business Improvement District Hospitality Program covers the public sidewalks along the Kalakaua-Kuhio Avenue corridor, from the Kalakaua Avenue Bridge to Kapahulu Avenue and intervening streets. Flexibility in the distribution of manpower allows for adjustments to changing needs.
