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.

We just wrapped up another amazing Hawaiian stay cation (or 3rd) at the 'Alohilani Resort Waikiki. We live in coffee country, Big Island (very rural and quiet) and Waikiki is our preferred destination for a change of scenery & pace if we can't get to the mainland. We were originally booked for 3 nights, but ended up extending for a 4th night because we just didn't want to leave! We have 4 or 5 hotels that we love in Waikiki, all great for their own reasons, but the 'Alohilani is by far our favorite. Upon arrival, Renee at the front desk recognized us right away from our previous visits & welcomed us back, got us checked into an amazing room early morning (part of their Kama'aina special), and called us in the room 15 minutes after we arrived to make sure all was pono & see if there was anything else we needed. Our room had THE BEST view of Waikiki Beach (see pics). Sunset, surfers paddling out, visitors doing SUP yoga at 8am. We got Longboard Club access for our stay & feel that it's a great value for the additional upgrade fee. We go for a big walk early in the morning & it's nice to return & not have to worry about what we're doing for breakfast. For evenings, we hit it early (4:30-ish) & would have a few glasses of wine (great selection of good quality wines) & pupu's, then head back to the room for sunset (again, see pics) before heading out into the night scene for a walk & then catching a late dinner. Staff in Longboard was awesome & attentive, as usual! Belle, Micah, Anson, Shelly, Mieko, Julie (and anyone I'm forgetting at this point!) and Ronnie . . . how anyone can work, head to the North Shore afterwards to surf the crazy swell we've been getting over the past few weeks; hang out late night having beers w/ the boys, and be back at 4am to start his shift & still be so "on" & full of Aloha . . . really amazing! The pool scene is definitely progressive. We got back on Friday night & decided to take a dip before bed & they had a DJ & great light show, and then Saturday afternoon another DJ. There is no dancing like there used to be (due to COVID), but everyone was still having a great time. We didn't spend as much time at the pool as usual, but Jones greeted us every morning as we passed through to Longboard, and again in the afternoon when he was there. We only ate at in the hotel (Swell) once this trip & the Ahi Tartar & Margarita Pizza were really good & hit the spot. To wrap it up . . . Amazing staff, unbeatable location, room with an INSANE Waikiki beach view. The hotel has it's Covid procedures down & we felt very safe staying here (didn't mention earlier) and we loved Longboard Club. We don't have dates set to go back yet, but as soon as there is a Puka in our schedule, I'll be making reservations & will be counting the days! Read less

I stayed at The Alohilani a couple of weeks ago and it was one of my favorite stays in Oahu I've ever experienced. The hotel rooms were clean and have great views and the staff was the absolute best. My favorite part of the hotel is the Swell Restaurant & Bar, its great outdoor lounge area with a beautiful infinity pool and views of the beach, good music and drinks, and incredible service. The manager of the restaurant, Sylvia, took care of me all week. I would come in every day for happy hour and she remembered who I was, made sure I got a great table, and even introduced me to some new people. Weekdays were pretty chill but Friday night basically turned into an outdoor night pool party- think Miami! I cannot wait to go back :) Read less

This property is centrally located on Waikiki Beach. The views from our 30th floor room were fabulous. We could see both Diamond Head and the Pacific Ocean. The room was clean, subtly understated with a very comfortable bed. We opted for the Longboard Club and were amazed at how wonderful and worthwhile this add-on option suited us. The lobby is lovely and the staff oustanding. When we checked in, all amenities were clearly communicated. Our evening respite in the 5th floor club was a true pleasure, enjoying the upscale wine selections and charcuterie from superior staff (Anson and Mickah). Kudos to this hotel we will definitely stay here again. Read less

I recently stayed at the Alohilani with My spouse and kids. We were there for New Years and overall enjoyed the trip. Pros Location is key as shops, restaurants and the lagoon beach out front were great. Pool area and O lounge were nice and service great Amenities were varied and kids enjoyed the aquarium feeding and art installation at the pool Ocean views from the tower were beautiful Valet service was exceptional and they offered umbrellas and beach towels ABC store attached to resort Cute boutique shops for gifts and souvenirs Cons Service in the rooms was inconsistent as when we arrived in a tower room, we were missing toiletries, water, and robes. I wasn’t sure if this was due to booking through a third party or from staff oversight. Tower rooms were smaller, bathrooms were small and balcony was a bit scary with a younger child in our room. After upgrading to the seaside building (room 920) we had better views, bigger room and full amenities. We had a fantastic view of NYE fireworks! Photos from that room included. Overall I would stay here again as the location and views were excellent. Read less
