On the majestic sea cliffs just north of Hilo, Hawaii, sits the former Hilo Sugar Mill compound, now known as the Wainaku Executive Center. Originally built in 1894 on one of the most prime oceanfront locations on Hilo Bay, the Hilo Sugar Mill was luxuriously renovated in 1997 using locally sourced Hamakua Koa wood. Extensive renovation transformed this historic sugar mill into the Wainaku Executive Center, an up-scale property of business offices and event space bathed in tropical flowers. Perched above Hilo Bay it maintains its historic position as one of Hilo's touchstones to its legendary past . CELEBRATE WITH US!
