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.

This was such a special experience that my husband and I got to experience! The hotel couldn’t have hired a better person to teach us this special part of the culture! We were so impressed with all the activities and amenities this hotel has! Very helpful, friendly, and welcoming staff (especially during the longboard evening club)! We will definitely be staying here again! Read less

There is a resort fee so beware! The hotel was fabulous. We loved our stay. The walls are paper thin. The guest service was subpar. The pool is very neat and over all close enough to walk to everything downtown and a great location. There are daily dive sessions where they feed the fish inside the tanks. They offer lei making free of charge. I… Read more

Everyone from the front desk, to the valet, concierge and Long Beach Club was extremely friendly and nice. Good value and had a very good Kamaaina special. Will come back again. Lunch @ Momosan was very good and we enjoyed our dinner @Morimotos. Had to have the A-5 wagyu beef! We also tried the Double Fat ice Cream truck right outside the hotel. Read less

We stayed 10 evenings at this hotel to celebrate our 50th Wedding Anniversary and have lived on Oahu for 4 years in the 68-71 time frame. We have been to the "islands" at least six times since we met for various vacations and family events. This hotel was located in an excellent location as it is out of the main shopping area (east of the police station) on Kalakaua and before Kapahula. The staff were top notch, and the property very clean. At 10:30am they feed the tropical fish the massive salt water tank in the lounge area which is a great treat for both adults & children. The rooms are cleaned every other day (due impart to COVID) but everything is kept very sanitary and neat. A few "digs" for the property and location follows: 1) On our last trip to Oahu with my entire family to celebrate my wife's 70th BD we found Waikiki to be no more thanf a high-end Shopping Center. Gone was the quaintness of the International Market Place replaced by three levels of high-end shops and restaurants and new Hotels. Lost is the overall feeling of "Aloha". We usually stay in this location as it is central to visiting local friends and places. 2) The state allows street musicians to perform all along Kalakaua Ave and many perform lout hip-hop music, or are pitching for some cause. Again, I want to hear Hawaiian music not load hip-hop or rap. 3) Six years ago we were shocked by the number of homeless in Waikiki and the surrounding streets. Kapahulu Ave had a "tent city" just north of the Ala Wai Canal...That was gone, but people sleep in the parks, on the grass alongs the beach, next to the sea wall. The police just let them be for the most part unless they get out of line. The State Government should be ashamed for allowing this to happen. 4)The music at the pool level of the hotel (5) is very noisy in the evenings...The music of the DJ playing Hip-Hop and Rap thundered up to our room on the 37th floor and was quite annoying until it subsided just before 10pm.. 5) Hawaii as of this post is now considering a 3% tourist tax which, along with the other taxes, increases the cost of your hotel, and other tourist related expenses to approximately 25% if it is passed. If you want to really sell what Hawaii is all about you need to get out of Waikiki and visit other locations on the North Shore, the Leeward, or the Windward side of the island...or for a better experience visit the Big Island, Maui, where civilization hasn't destroyed the feeling of Alo Read less
