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 hands down the best experience ever in Waikiki. The service on property was amazing and they never miss a detail. The pool was amazing and the room view was gorgeous. Can't wait for our next stay here!

This is a very nice resort. Even the bathrooms smelled nice. The staff is professional and helpful. I highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to be close to everything and enjoy Hawaii. So many things are within walking distance and car rentals are everywhere.

Stayed at Alohilani for a week and I can’t rate the staff, experience and the overall hotel highly enough! Recently refurbished, the hotel offers brand new, modern and extremely clean facilities. Ideally situated and steps away from the beach and the retail stores on Kalākaua Avenue. Special mention to Jones (working at the pool area) who constantly ensured that guests were greeted, setup and comfortable for a day of sun- lounging! Definitely delivers the Aloha spirit! I will certainly return to the hotel in future trips. Read less

Just returned from a week at the Alohilani. Sadly jewelry was stolen from my room. Security is investigating but have heard nothing....but do not expect to as other than ourselves, only housekeeping was in our room. Housekeeping also straightens your cosmetic bags and meds, if you leave them in sight of the sink. In all my years of traveling, that has NEVER happened , even in the cheapest hotels we have stayed at. From front desk to pool bar, bellman, etc. All were gracious. Morimoto's is not associated with the hotel , merely is in the same building but I totally recommend Morimoto's Happy Hour....tried all the Happy Hour snacks and drinks.....ono. So, if you visit, use the room safe, go to Morimoto's happy hour, lock up meds and cosmetics. Also read previous reviews of the hotel. We were lucky, our room was bug free and clean, no night time arson fires, no rude employees. Or were we lucky, considering I lost two pieces of expensive jewelry..... Read less
