On the scenic side of Waikiki near Diamond Head, the property is located across the street from Waikiki Beach and within walking distance of Waikiki shopping and dining, the International Marketplace, Kapiolani Park, the Honolulu Zoo and the Waikiki Aquarium. The rooms feature spacious accommodations and private lanais, and there is also a fitness center, the Spa Olakino, two heated freshwater swimming pools, a new whirlpool spa and six specialty restaurants and two lounges at the hotel.
From the moment you arrive you can feel that there's something special. Occupying 5.3 acres of prime Waikiki real estate, this large resort hotel offers every facility and service needed for a complete vacation. All of Waikiki's shopping, dining, and entertainment is within walking distance. Across the street from Waikiki Beach, this two-tower resort offers 1,310 air-conditioned rooms. Balconies provide city, partial ocean, or full ocean views. The rooms are furnished in a yellow-and-green motif with tieback drapes, warm woods.
An expansive, third-floor terrace in the front tower provides a perfect spot for enjoying the Hawaiian sun. The ocean-view terrace has a large pool and a restaurant that offers live Hawaiian music at night above the colorful scene on Waikiki's main street, Kalakaua Avenue. Directly across Kalakaua is Kuhio Beach Park, a casual family destination featuring an enclosed salt-water lagoon with a sand bottom. Kuhio Beach is an extension of—and indistinguishable from—the better-known Waikiki Beach, which is a two-minute walk from the hotel. But for most visitors, it's all the same beach.
