Good to Know About Nauru Tower Nauru Tower is located in a prime location within Kakaako and considered a luxury condo with several of the units boasting some of the most incredible unobstructed ocean views in Kakaako. The building feels a bit dated - lobby, elevator, hallways - and the curving shape of each unit can make interior decoration a bit challenging. The south east facing penthouse units arguably boasts the very best views of any condo in the area.
High floor Nauru Tower condos facing southeast, may offer the most incredible ocean views in Kakaako & Ala Moana and it is questionable if any of the new condos in Kakaako will be able to offer similar views.

More About Nauru Tower The Nauru Tower condo is one of those buildings that demands your attention. Its distinct curved blue-green exterior, topped off with 12 floors that are cantilevered outward, seeming to float above the city below. That's not the only inventive touch, either.
The building has a reinforced core inside that makes the customary outer structure unnecessary. What that means for you is that your view, from the floor-to-ceiling windows, is maximized. When you look out at the wondrous ocean waves from your living room, or even your bedroom, you'll understand precisely the rewards of this innovation.
That same core also protects the building from high winds and earthquake damage, bringing a safety benefit that is immeasurable. You can be assured of the stability and strength of the tower even at such a crucial moment.
Most of your time here won't be taken up with those concerns, though. You'll be using the amazing 7th floor recreation deck, most of which you could easily believe was transported from a local park. The grassy areas, bushes and trees create this atmosphere, which is why it's such a great place for BBQs. The same floor has the lighted tennis court, allowing you to get in a few games as late as 10PM.
Corner units in Nauru Tower have lanais, whereas the vast majority of the remaining units do not have lanais. The prime ocean view units are in the 04 and 05 stacks, with the 03 & 06 units having a less direct view of the waters, but still an amazing outlook.
A built-in benefit with Kakaako condos like this one is the access to some of the best shopping and dining in Hawaii, at Ala Moana Center, as well as one of the most popular local beaches, Ala Moana Beach Park. Walk to either or even hit both in the same day – all on foot. You're that close.
What you have here is the kind of living space that people dream of having once they 'make it'. Luxurious surroundings, scenery that would make a magazine spread and the kind of modern amenities that only come at this level. Maybe it's time to indulge yourself a little. We know just the place.
