The former Mauka Tower of the ResortQuest Waikiki Beach Hotel was bought by the Napili Partners investment group, who awarded the hotel management contract to Aqua Hotels and Resorts. The hotel is in the process of being upgraded and in the interim is it known as the Aqua Ocean Tower Hotel. After the renovations are complete it will be renamed the Aqua Renew and it will become the highest end hotel in the Aqua Resorts chain.

Rooms will have remote control lights and dimmers, rooms with king size beds will have 32 inch high definition LCD televisions and rooms with two double beds will have projection televions that display 4 feet by 6 feet on the wall.

The hotels' oceanfront rooms will have unobstructed views of the ocean that are bordered on each side by the ResortQuest Waikiki Beach Hotel and the Waikiki Beach Marriott Hotel.

The hotel was last renovated in the 1980's. The current renovation will include remodeling the lobby and guest rooms, adding two new suites, and painting the building exterior. The renovations are being done three floors at a time, from the bottom to top of the hotel
