Alohilani Resort Waikiki Beach

Honolulu, Oahu

The hotel

Pure paradise if you’re heading to Hawaii for its beaches, Alohilani boasts contemporary design and is steps from Waikiki Beach’s exclusive ‘Kuhio’ stretch. You can be snorkelling, surfing or swimming just moments after you arrive. If that’s not enough water, Alohilani Resort’s 280,000 gallon Oceanarium is filled with Hawaiian reef fishes, creating a soothing setting for drinks at O Bar and island breakfasts at Lychee. And, if your aquatic thirst still isn’t quenched, the fifth floor pool deck’s an impeccably chic setting, with its infinity pool, paddling pool, bar, overstuffed teak loungers, driftwood sculptures, and ocean views. You could even splash out on a cabana or water lounger. By night, it’s a magical space with lanterns, fire pits, and live music, ideal after dining in one of its two restaurants led by world-famous ‘Iron Chef’ Masaharu Morimoto.

I stayed for two nights at 'Alohilani, the place is nice and clean. Walking distance to Waikiki beach, located at prime location. The receptionist and other staffs are helpful and friendly except their concierge. I don't recommend their concierge as they are not very helpful for first-time tourists. We were lost and asking for information about sightseeing trolley or other tour options, the lady at the right end corner was not friendly at all, avoiding eye contact and give little information. The way she answers made me feel stupid. I don't feel comfortable and left, end up asking the valet staff for direction. At the end of our day, this lady kept staring at us when we were just chilling at the lobby. Other than this, the hotel amenities and facilities are great, just go elsewhere for tourist information, don't waste your time at their concierge. Read less

Located super close to the beach. Check in was quick and simple. Hotel foyer is beautiful and the enormous aquarium is a must see. Hotel staff was very helpful and would check in with us during our stay to ensure all our needs were met and if they could assist us with anything. I definitely recommend Alohilani Resort -Waikiki.

Stayed 1 night, Ocean View room was nice & clean w/nice view. My only problem was I had difficult time sleeping, probably due to the bed was not like my Sleep Number bed at home & pillow was too soft. Everything else was great.
