Voted among Top Hotels by Condé Nast Readers’ Choice Awards, ‘Alohilani Resort Waikiki Beach is a cosmopolitan jewel presiding over the most famous shoreline in the world. Five years in the making, ‘Alohilani has been transformed through a $125 million redevelopment into a 4 ½ -star resort enveloped in sophisticated, awe-inspiring design that pays homage to Hawaii’s rich cultural heritage. Designed by acclaimed Rockwell Group with elegant touches by Pacific Asia Design Group, the 839 all-new guest rooms and suites offer a serene stay with private balconies looking out to the ocean, Diamond Head or city views.
With unparalleled dramatic views, ’Alohilani features a remarkable infinity pool experience. Swell Pool & Bar is a see-and-be-seen,17,000-square-foot fifth-floor pool deck featuring a heated saltwater infinity pool, private cabanas, and a lounge area with fire pits. Named “10 Most Instagram-Worthy Pools in America” by InStyle Magazine, the enticing design captures the euphoric experience you feel while relaxing and unwinding.
At night, Swell Pool & Bar transitions into a vibrant evening hot spot with live, local music where guests and locals mingle while enjoying light bites and craft cocktails. An unrivaled destination, Swell features a nightly large-scale video art series, “Light Monument,” depicting the breathtaking landscapes of Hawaii shown over 100 feet of ‘Alohilani’s Beachside tower wall.
‘Alohilani specializes in globally inspired cuisine and local flavors at five on-site dining outlets, including world-renowned Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto’s only restaurants in Hawaii — Morimoto Asia Waikiki and Momosan.
Iconic to the property’s history, the newly restored 280,000-gallon saltwater Oceanarium is home to more than 1,000 indigenous marine animals. The Oceanarium anchors O Bar, the resort’s panoramic gathering place, offering an impressive happy hour with specialty cocktails, local-infused small plates and entertainment to enjoy the Hawaiian undersea.
From meetings to social events and weddings, ‘Alohilani’s fresh social and meeting spaces bring the best of the Islands to every gathering. With nearly 20,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space and enhanced meeting rooms that can transform from 1,500 square feet to 12,000 square feet, the possibilities for celebrations and events are endless.
In addition to its awe-inspiring public spaces, ‘Alohilani unveiled a new guest-only experience, Longboard Club in Summer of 2019. This experience offers a private indoor/outdoor setting for guests to unwind and take part in curated offerings, including a diverse 16-bottle wine cruvinet, custom local beers on tap, international cheese cart and charcuterie, and more.
In honor of Queen Lili‘uokalani and her deep commitment to preserving Hawaii’s Forests, ‘Alohilani, with the help of guests, has pledged to plant 100,000 trees with Hawaiian Legacy Reforestation Initiative (HLRI) to revive Hawaii’s endangered hardwood species and rehabilitate native ecosystems. Guests contribute to these efforts via a $5 “tree fee” added to each stay that goes directly to HLRI’s reforestation efforts on Oahu and the Island of Hawaii. Guests are also encouraged to visit HLRI’s Gunstock Ranch on Oahu’s beautiful north shore to plant their own tree.
