On November 16, 2006, the Smoke Free Hawaii State Law was put into effect. The law creates fair and consistent statewide protection for the health of people who do not want to be subjected to secondhand smoke. Under the law, smoking is prohibited in enclosed or partially enclosed facilities open to the public. This includes private businesses, areas of employment and facilities owned by the state or the counties.
The hotel has designated smoking areas for guest’s convenience. This includes:
· Benches located between Ali’i and Diamond Head Tower
· Lagoon Green (except during functions)
· Beach fronting the hotel
· Open area by the escalators on the ground level of Tapa Tower
· Outside the service doors past Coral 1-2 and the restrooms in the Mid Pacific Conference Center
