'The First Lady of Waikiki' was constructed at the turn of the 20th century, and the Moana Surfrider lives up to her elegant name as a Waikiki beachfront property. Upon arrival, you'll be treated to a signature Westin elixir, a fragrant flower lei, and a refreshingly chilled towel. Catch a great night's sleep on your Westin Heavenly Bed, and soak up traditional Hawaiian healing techniques and treatments inside Waikiki's only beachfront spa.

Best hotel on Waikiki

When we first arrived at the Moana we were absolutely taken away by the beauty of the entrance. It was built in 1901 and it has been recently updated but you can still feel how classic the hotel was. We could walk out to the beach from the pool which was wonderful and we were a street down from the international marketplace to do some shopping. The location was perfect. The beach bar that they have there was great, the drinks were obviously a little pricy but the atmosphere was amazing. They had a band and a hula girl every night starting form 6-8. I would absolutley recommend this hotel to any of my friends and if we went back to Oahu, this is where we would stay.

You can take the bus for $2.25 basically anywhere. We took it to Hanama Bay to go snorkeling and you can also take it to Diamond Head. MUCH MUCH cheaper than taking a taxi.

Beautiful!

This is exactly the type of hotel and experience that we love. True character in the building and the staff. While the location was a bit overwhelming, the hotel was a beautiful oasis. The hotel was the best part of our time in Honolulu.

Best of the BEST !!!

Awesome hotel!! Location is prime, views are spectacular, we just didn't want to leave!! We loved the fact that there were so many areas to just sit back and watch the world go bye. You can sit in rocking chairs on the front patio/porch area during the evening with a cool breeze to watch all the street action and then walk a few steps through the lobby and be on the beach. We will most definately stay here again, this was a dream vacation and a large part of it was all the positives offered by the Moana Surfrider, two thumbs up !!!

1st time Moana & 30 Years Later in Waikiki

The Westin Moana Surfrider fulfilled numerous expectations and provided incentive to return for a longer stay. She has a foot in the past and a foot in the now that will continue into the future for there is nothing like her on Waikiki. While the nightlife on Kalakaua has become more intense from what I recall 30 years past, the Surfrider maintains its charm and on the Beach comfort for relaxation. The staff is courteous, helpful and provides top-notch service. Arrival Manager Casey King was attentive to our needs and went over the top to assure our stay would be in his words “relaxing, refreshing and memorable.” Roxanne at the excursions desk, and Colin and Gloria at the pool and beach side service were fantastic. The Westin Moana Surfrider has a fabulous breakfast buffet, afternoon tea, and a classic veranda for dining. Fitness and Spa are conveniently accessible as with Yoga and Hula lessons for those wishing to experience diverse activities. Nightly entertainment in the Banyan Tree Beach Bar courtyard who's setting can't be compared to any other resort on Waikiki. The Moana Surfrider is a thriving resort whose energy flows like the breeze that carries the spirit of the Islands. We were loyal vacationers to Cancun but I think we've found a new home. Well done Moana Surfrider!

Nightlife tip: Long walk from hotel

Hawaii has a passion for her unique lifestyle and good living, happy moments and calming of your spirit if you allow yourself to slow down and learn to enjoy what is there. The diversity of cultures in the islands provides foods from all around the world and some recipes are in a state of flavor fusion. Experiment and try small establishments. The name brand eateries are predictable and can be pricey. Entertainment is also a necessity for fine and enjoyable dining so seek out where the “Local” talents are jamming (Tiki's Grill & Bar). Don't forget to "suck-em up! It all works together. There’s everything you want by foot, public transportation, rental car or nearby hotels. If its to busy then head out to outer Islands. They are all good for what suits your temperment.
