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 stayed in the Alohilani Resort Waikiki for 5 night, in an Ocean View Room. The positives are the location, amenities and customer service. The rooms are clean and well presented and i did enjoy the pool deck and all the facilities offered. The concierge was the best, helping us arrange tours and providing advice, thank you so much. It really is a great place to stay and we will return there again. But to be honest I felt we got the short straw regarding the room. Our room was #1216 and whist the ocean view was nice we were on the east side of the building. On the ground floor of the east side is a very large kitchen exhaust fan extracting all those fumes from the food outlets on ground floor and this made the balcony at times very unpleasant. So for our next stay i will request the west side of the building or the premium ocean view room, which is a true ocean view Read less

We could actually hear the elephants trumpet while we were sitting next to the pool which was really cool. Read less

Just got back from our 5 night stay at The Alohilani Resort. The property is gorgeous with great amenities. Pool is wonderful! Room was very large and clean ( Im very picky with cleanliness). We ate one night at the pool lounge Swell. Price was reasonable and service was great. Momosan is a must try! I would highly recommend this hotel!

We stayed here for 9 nights, and we stayed in a “ocean view” room, hmmm not sure if you can call ocean view having to go out into your balcony and turn your head right and see a 50 metre of ocean a “ocean view”, rather it should be called a partial ocean view. We had partial view of Diamond Head, and a full view of the car park below. I thought… Read more

We had partial view of Diamond Head, and a full view of the car park below. I thought the room was on the smaller side and bathroom even more so, but it was clean. Pool and Bar area was great. Staff were friendly. Location was great, across the road from the beach ( which is great for little kids because of the break wall) and down about 200 mtrs it’s better for older kids and adults. Major bus stop 100mtrs up the road also. I think the hotel is over priced. Read less
