SCP Hotel Hilo

March 22, 2021


Soul Community Planet (SCP) has announced the purchase of the 138-room Hilo Seaside Hotel, located in Hilo, Hawaii. The hotel will undergo a $4.6 million renovation and reopen as the SCP Hotel Hilo on June 1, 2021.

Steeped in the rich Hawaiian tourism legacy of the William and Matilda Wassman Kimi family and their six children, the 2.23-acre seaside property was founded by Hawaiian native and tourism visionary Richard Kimi in 1956 and was continually operated by the Kimi family until this acquisition. Under the family’s management, the Hilo Seaside Hotel cultivated a deep spirit of Aloha, and became known as a place where island hospitality is at the forefront of the ancient Hawaiian culture.
