Waikiki’s beachfront Gold Coast getaway

Cradled between Diamond Head Crater, Kapiolani Park and the sparkling sea, the boutique Kaimana is one of the few hotels on Waikiki's exclusive Gold Coast. Although less than a mile from central Waikiki, the area offers the peace and tranquility of neighborhood Hawaii and one of Waikiki's most stylish stretches of sand. The hotel's signature open-air Island restaurant, the Hau Tree Lanai, is a longtime favorite of residents. Book an oceanfront room and marvel at the seascape before you.

Dining

The Kaimana's signature restaurant is the Hau Tree Lanai, a beachfront outdoor patio beneath a historic native hau tree. Island dishes are served breakfast through dinner, with special emphasis on local ingredients and preparations. Upstairs and offering a remarkable ocean view is Miyako, a Japanese restaurant that attracts many of the hotel's Japanese guests. The Sunset Lanai Lounge is perfect for a drink and appetizer.

Rooms

Room décor is muted and simple in hints of rattan and floral, with wall-to-wall glass doors leading to private balconies. All rooms include complimentary Wi-Fi. Book within the main wing of the hotel, where an oceanfront room delivers a multi-hued panorama in virtual 3-D effect. At the open-air lobby, take advantage of valet-only parking (fees apply) and 24-desk service.

Location

The Gold Coast is an exclusive residential enclave marking the eastern end of Waikiki. Framed by sea, sky and parkland greenery, it's one of Honolulu's most coveted addresses. Only three hotels have locked in this location, and only the Kaimana has a beachfront setting. Reach Central Waikiki by foot in about 15 minutes along the beach park walk. Both the city bus and the Waikiki Trolley stop near the hotel.

Highlights
  • Rejuvenate in a residential beachfront sanctuary on the preferred end of Waikiki
  • Enjoy the natural surroundings, including 200 acres of park and hidden beaches
  • Delight in the petite, open-air charm of the Kaimana, a rare gem in Waikiki
Recreation

  • Bird watching in Kapiolani Park and winter whale watching from Diamond Head Rd.
  • Swimming and snorkeling in front of the hotel
  • Onsite Jujube Salon and Clinic

A different kind of hotel

Built into a mini-skyscraper, this is one of the most unique hotels I have seen. Each floor has a central square area turned into a Hawaiian garden with a water fountain. The rooms are very tiny and probably perfect for a honeymoon setting. The ocean view is to die for and there are several restaurants built into it including an authentic Japanese restaurant. It is farther away from the Waikiki area and barely qualifies as a Waikiki hotel, but it is nice to stay in a hotel situated away from the hundreds of other hotels that are clumped together.

Great Hotel for Returning Locals

Tourists expecting the full Waikiki experience might prefer a hotel closer to the heart of things, but for a returning local, or anyone with a deeper knowledge of the island, the New Otani is ideally situated. Kaimana beach is right there, as is Kapiolani Park, and it's easy to slip off to Kaimuki or Kahala without dealing with any traffic. The hotel staff is extremely courteous and attentive, and the Diamond Head or Ocean views are great. The price is also very competitive, especially if you get a renovated room.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Parking along Kapiolani Park is metered, but free from 6pm to 10am — a steal, and there's almost always an available space.

great place

Great location, right on the beach. Pros: I enjoyed the shower on the beach to wash off all the salt water. Free parking across the st. For the entire night. And My room had a balcony. Cons: no swimming pool or spa in the hotel.

Economical Beach Getaway for one or two

I stayed here for business, small but clean room. Close to beach, friendly staff, view was perpendicular to beach but was ok for the money. Beach was good if you don't want waves and want to wade.
