Queen Kapiolani Hotel

Honolulu, Oahu

The hotel

Named after the beloved wife of Hawaii’s last king, Queen Kapiolani is something of a Waikiki landmark, paying homage to Hawaii’s majestic heritage and unique culture with a modern twist. Overlooking the sandiest stretch of Waikiki Beach, guests can enjoy stunning views of Diamond Head from the balconies of their newly renovated rooms, each and every one of them furnished in breezy Island style. As a change from the beach, laze beside the pool instead, dipping in every now and again to cool off. Although there are restaurants all around you, the hotel’s own Kulana is highly recommended, not just for buffet favourites but for its sweeping panoramic views! Pre-dinner, chill awhile at the Deck Pool, sipping on your favourite cocktail – a Mai Tai perhaps?

I enjoyed my weekend at the Queen Kapiolani. The junior suite is amazing. The bed was so comfortable and everything was nice and clean and neat when I came in. The view from the room was amazing and it was great waking up to that in the mornings.if anyone is traveling solo or couples traveling. I do recommend the Junior Suites. It’s worth it.

We loved having coffee from the shop downstairs in the morning on our porch/in our bed to watch the sunrise over diamond head. The restaurant/bar Deck and the pool are also splendid. The waiters and bartenders really made the experience even more special and memorable. When we return to Hawaii, we will stay here over any other hotel or Airbnb/VRBO. Highly recommend. Read less
