The Surfjack Hotel & Swim Club
As its name hints, Surfjack Hotel & Swim Club’s philosophy is all about getting you into Hawaii’s aqua-infused soul. That’s why life here centres around the pool. It’s the setting for al fresco big-screen movies. It’s the venue for ‘talk story sessions’, where interesting local personalities provide poolside conversations. It’s the spot for board games from the mini-library. And it’s a place to taste locally sourced fare reinvented by famed Honolulu-born chef Ed Kenney. Near Waikiki Beach and shopping, its design is timeless Hawaii, with smooth wood, vividly painted metal, and heritage furnishings accessorised with bold prints and vintage Hawaiian finds. And its spirit follows suit: completely casual, it mixes an ‘anything goes’ attitude with a desire to get you into ‘real Hawaii’, putting on surf lessons and inviting island musicians to play mellow live sounds.
