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.

Even though I travelled in December of 2018, the stay at this hotel will remain one of my fondest memories. Not only was I given a free room upgrade to the penultimate floor, but the service all around was exceptional.

As other reviewers have noted, the lobby is stunning, but this property is not 4 stars. I stayed here for 7 nights. It does not have proper security or guest services for its size. I was followed by a strange man who was roaming my floor in the middle of the day with a weapon in his hand. They have no security cameras on the floors and leave the floors unlocked. All I received when this happened was “I’m sorry about this.” They said they would follow up with me. No one did. I spent the next 4 hours calling the front desk to get an update and never got through. I finally got a call back from the manager on duty. She was nice and offered to move me. At that time she also offered to call the police so I could fill out a report. However, this happened in their hotel and it was so far past when a report would make sense to file, I declined. Why wouldn’t they have offered that to me when the incident happened? Why am I filling out a police report for something that happened because of the hotel’s lack of security? My new room had a nice view, but that’s where it stops. This place is extremely over crowded. Good luck using the amenities. When I went to settle my bill, I was surprised I was charged the full amount for my stay, despite the issue. The new manager on duty was so rude and condescending. When I asked about the potential to get some of my stay comped for what happened, he simply said “we will not comp you because someone was following you.” He downplayed the entire situation and made me feel like I was at fault. I will not stay here again. Book with caution, especially solo travelers. Read less

My husband and I stayed at 'Alohilani for our anniversary trip this year, and very much enjoyed our stay. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the view of Diamondhead and the ocean from our room was as beautiful as advertised. I highly recommend taking advantage of the "Longboard Club access" upgrade, especially if you can get it as part of a deal through the hotel website. It was well worth the extra money for our 2-night stay. The hotel pool area is a bit small and crowded, but we were always able to find a seat and enjoy the pool deck, plus the access to Waikiki Beach is super convenient. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a posh stay on Waikiki. Read less
