Simply Amazing!

Denver, Colorado

Hands down one of my best travel experiences ever. Spacious rooms, comfortable beds and amazing staff. The breakfast buffet costs extra but was a great way to start the day. I would highly recommend reserving beach chairs and an umbrella in advance of your stay. The location of the hotel is great! The Maui Brewing Company restaurant and taproom is very close and has a killer happy hour.

Felt like ROYALTY every day...dream come true staying here.

NJ

Booked a Historic Garden Junior Suite with two double beds. The front desk attendant Michael accommodated my request at check in which was a breeze. The room was very spacious with two bathrooms and three closets. Bed was very comfy and loved the toiletries. Housekeeping was amazing. They would ask to make up your room when they saw you exit in the am and unlimited FREE bottled water. Tons of towels never a shortage. Wifi worked great. Enjoyed the MaiTai Bar and chilling at the pool. Grounds are very clean and service was amazing everywhere. We were even provided a late check out and hospitality room. The flower leis and beads by valet were so beautiful we wore them at a wedding. When I come back this is the only place I would stay. Simply pure elegance.

A Royal Luau – A Cultural Journey Through Time

Every Monday, the resort pays homage to the Royal lifestyle by holding an exciting feast event. Starting on the sweeping main lawn, guests slowly make their way to the sacred Helumoa grounds before enjoying a feast of varied flavours and intriguing scents. Laced with rich dance and music, this dinner show provides a glimpse into the heritage and history of this Island nation and is the only dinner show in Waikiki set on the oceanfront.

Swimming Pool

Outdoor Pool

The resort's private pool is a stylish venue for either cooling down or soaking up the sunshine. Heated yet using soft saltwater for a purer swim, guests can opt for a payable Cabana for an extra special experience or just lounge on one of the many chairs.

Abhasa Spa Waikiki

This exquisite spa centre provides a much needed respite from working life and offers a range of relaxing treatments and services.
