Luxury Condos That Emphasize Privacy

Park Lane condos

True luxury doesn’t announce itself, it’s discrete and private. You’ll find many luxury condo buildings on Oahu where privacy is at the heart of it all. The lifestyle there means fewer people, private entrances, and highly trained staff that value discretion, enabling you to let your guard down and make the most of your life. 

These buildings typically have a smaller number of units which means the number of residents will be less compared to other buildings. The amenities tend to be of a higher level as well, designed in a way to ensure that there's not much crowding, so that residents can exist in their own space without overlapping. 

  • Waiea

At just over 150, Waiea has half the number of units as other towers in Ward Village, so you'll have less people moving in and around the tower compared to other places. You’ll most likely be able to come and go without running into other residents. That not only makes the building more exclusive and private, it also results in larger floor plans and a higher staff to resident ratio.

  • Park Lane

Park Lane is second to none when it comes to privacy. The design itself makes all units more private and some even have garages with a private entrance to the unit. The resident base is largely international with almost half being non-owner occupant, so it never feels like there are a lot of people on the property. From its round-the-clock private security to highly trained staff that provide discreet and proactive service, Park Lane has quickly become the benchmark for luxury condos on Oahu.

  • Victoria Place

Victoria Place's private gated entry from Auahi Street makes it stand out from other buildings in the area. Special attention has been paid to deliver residents with a more private lifestyle. There's even an amenity space at Victoria Place that you can reserve to privately enjoy facilities such as a pool, garden area, dining and lounging areas, and more for your friends and family.

Ultra Luxury Condos

The lifestyle in an ultra luxury condo building will be more upscale and elevated compared to a conventional luxury building. You’ll notice the use of more premium materials, higher craftsmanship, luxury appliances, and a greater level of security and privacy.

The staff at these buildings will be attentive, anticipating your every need, and ensuring that you’re well looked after in complete privacy.  The quality of the amenities will be better, maintenance and upkeep will be done proactively to maintain the high standards. Some of the best ultra luxury condo buildings on Oahu include:

  • Waiea

Waiea's front-row location and fewer units compared to other buildings put it firmly in that ultra luxury category. It has been developed with privacy and prestige in mind. From the gorgeous interiors designed by Ingrao to premium materials like onyx walling, hardwood and stone flooring, as well as Miele kitchen appliances, a conscious effort has been made to deliver a superior living experience to residents.

  • Park Lane

Park Lane is a reimagination of what an ultra luxury condo can be. It's spread across 6 acres and looks like a high-rise tower turned on its side, this makes the unit more private.

They're legendary among luxury condo developments on Oahu for their exceptional service quality.

Quality of Project Overall

View from Anaha Living room

Some buildings are just a cut above the rest. Whether it be due to the quality of the amenities to fewer units for increased privacy or discrete, proactive service from the staff.
