It all began with the arrival of Roy Kelley and his wife Estelle in Honolulu, Hawaii, in 1929. Roy was an architect and began his career first with architect C.W. Dickey, and then independently. He was responsible for designing many of Honolulu's landmark buildings including the main building of the old Halekulani Hotel and the Waikiki Theater on Kalakaua Avenue. His other works included the construction of numerous apartment buildings and hotels in Waikiki, including the 50-room Islander Hotel on Seaside Avenue in 1947.
In 1963, Kelley acquired the land occupied by the old Outrigger Canoe Club on a long term lease, and with this was born the Outrigger Hotels Hawaii chain. Included in the agreement were leases on three Waikiki lots that later became the Outrigger East, Outrigger West and Coral Reef hotels. On the site of the old canoe club, the Outrigger Waikiki Hotel was built. Outrigger continued its expansion in Waikiki throughout the next two decades operating numerous additional hotels under three operating groups: the Outrigger Hotels, the Waikiki Hotels and the Reef Hotels. In 1984, the three operating groups were consolidated into one operating company, the Outrigger Hotels. In 1986, Outrigger Hotels added Outrigger Royal Islander and Outrigger Hobron Hotel to the group, which made it the largest chain in the State of Hawaii.
Outrigger, having its eyes set on further expansion, entered the condominium resort management business in 1990, and by 1995, Outrigger Hotels Hawaii changed its name to Outrigger Hotels and Resorts. In 1999, the company chose fifteen of its hotels in Waikiki and grouped them into a separate division, the Ohana Hotels and Resorts. Now the Ohana brand showcases the company's more moderately-priced hotels with mostly off beach locations, while the Outrigger brand consists of upscale, full-service hotels and resorts featuring mostly beachfront locations in Hawaii and the Pacific. Today Outrigger Enterprises Inc is one of the fastest growing hotel companies in the Pacific.
