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.

Modern, fresh resort with everything you could need in a fantastic location. We had interconnecting rooms, with ocean views (very different to ocean front, but still lovely).

Modern, fresh resort with everything you could need in a fantastic location. We had interconnecting rooms, with ocean views (very different to ocean front, but still lovely). Convenient to have a guest laundry on site and an ABC store on the ground floor. The pool is not fantastic for kids - too many people trying to get content for Instagram. The pool was named one of the most “Instagramable” in Hawaii to be fair. The gym is also pretty much non existent unless you’re into freestyle dance - it’s just a studio. But for two nights, as a young family, who spent most of our time exploring, the resort was great. Special mention for fantastic pillows and comfortable beds. Thank you Alohilani. Read less

Extremely poor service of cleanliness of the room. Terribly difficult to get in touch with Front Desk. There’s not even a Concierge final button on in room phone. Roach in my room. Location is alright; kinda far.

Beautiful, updated hotel with amazing views. Staff is great, especially Dailyn at the front desk. She made my birthday trip so special. Great amenities, great location, definitely would stay there again. Did I mention Dailyn at reception is a godsend? Anyway, the lobby is wonderful, it's close to the beach, restaurants, and shopping. Perfect.

Recently while visiting Waikiki we met a couple ( Bennett and Rani) while out having drinks one night. They told us that they worked at Swell, Alohi Lani and raved about the food,atmosphere and how much they both enjoyed working there. They were very excited about the new renovations and menu and invited us to visit them for Brunch. Due to their excitement we could not pass on this recommendation. Swell did not disapoint. We were greeted by both Bennett and Rani who then introduced us to their Manager. The roof top lounge was beautiful with amazing views and comfortable seating. We enjoyed one of the best brunch buffets I have ever had and then were invited to enjoy their beautiful pool for the afternoon. We had a great experience and were so pleased to see young people so happy to be part of a team. Thank you Bennett and Rani for exemplary customer service, we will definitely be back when we return to Waikiki. Read less
