A luxurious Island sanctuary away from the city
JW is a luxury offshoot of the Marriott hotel group, and the Ihilani Resort and Spa reflects the company's emphasis on pared-down style, with its simple wooden furnishings and muted palette. Sitting solo on a private beach cove with unobstructed views of the Pacific Ocean and the Waianae mountain range, the hotel has an impressive arsenal of amenities, ranging from seawater massage and color therapies at the spa to championship golfing. Sip Blue Hawaii's by the side of the pool as the sun sinks, dine on coconut shrimp at Naupaka Terrace, or rise early for some yoga under the shade of the huge tropical greenery in the hotel garden; guests can design their visits exactly as they wish at the JW.

Neighborhood
Located on Oahu's scenic western shore, the Marriott Ihilani is within the Ko Olina resort, just up the coast from Ko Olina Beach Park. This area is known for its 'wow' factor, even amongst the postcard-worthy beaches of Oahu. Less crowded than Honolulu's famous Waikiki strip, the lagoons here are perfect for activities like paddle boarding, snorkeling, and even whale-watching. The nearest city is Kapolei, a vibrant residential community to the east, while Kalaeloa Airport (JRF) is roughly a 17-minute drive away.
Hints and tips
Breakfast options at the Marriott Ihilani Hotel are numerous, but if an alfresco wake-up feast sounds tempting, try the Kalua Pork Eggs Benedict from the Poolside Bar.

While out and about, be on the lookout for street snacks like malasadas, a kind of Portuguese donut popular around the island.

Awesome honeymoon

This hotel was more than what we expected. The staff was great and very helpful. The views were beautiful and amazing. I loved the fact that this hotel was away from the big city. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this hotel to all my family and friends. If we ever go back to Hawaii we will definitely stay here again.

Good pricy hotel

My wife and i really enjoyed it's good location for rest but we ended up going to honolulu every meal to have popular restaurant and surfing. So If you were a traveler who eats hotel food and would like to rest for whole days at the private beach, this is the hotel you want to go. If you were a traveler who like to eat popular restaurant and shopping, this hotel is not in a good location. Also other than upgrading our room for $50/night for water view, we paid $35/night for parking and some activity fees ($120 for three nights) that we did not even use.

hawaiin stay

Nice location for privacy, the hotel has not been kept up to what I expected would be the standard for a JW marriott.. Mostly small items in disrepair. The staff treated us extremely well and were very helpful. Rooms we were offered were very nice the value is only average because of the high price. We were told this hotel is closing in 2015 and will reopen as a 4 seasons maybe this is the reason for the lack of attention to maintenance details. Very pleaston stay

Good all around.

As others have said on here the hotel was wonderful. Far from the maddening crowd of Honolulu and it's traffic. Make sure to have GPS to go anywhere, the traffic is bad all over the island. If you're young and want to 'make the scene' go to Waikiki, but for a laid back vacation this is the place. The hotel has many little hidden charges...beware $35.00 per day parking and if something says free it usually refers to once for 30 min....then the charging begins. Food in the hotel is very high but high all over the island and good food within walking distance. The lagoon makes for easy swimming but don't expect waves and there are many children because of the Disney resort next door that shares the lagoon.

Awesome Experience!

The hotel accomodations and staff were excellent. Be sure to have a room with an ocean front view. It is spectacular, and made our trip even better.

Nice hotel

Nice hotel, friendly staff. It's a little touristy with the Disney hotel next door, but still a fun place to stay.
