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.

"Another Great Adventure to Remember"

We had the best time enjoying ourselves with pool activities, the many beach lagoons, nice walks around the hotel property, beautiful sunsets from our room, drinks and food were delicious, too. The hotel staff were very courteous and professional. They really made sure that we were taken care of properly. I think that we found our new favorite place to visit on Oahu.

It's a little Italian Restaraunt named Assagio in the town of Kapolei. It's a five minute drive east of the hotel, the food is very unique and has a wide range when it comes toselection.

Fabulous for that perfect get-a-away!

This way outclassed any previous trip we've taken! This is truly a 5+ star hotel with peace, quiet and privacy. And the ponds with ocean life close up and personal, the view, the special way each quest is treated!

TWO WEEKS IN PARADISE

Michele and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this resort.We had a very nice ocean view room for the first eight days then they bumped us up to an even nicer room (no charge)with an ocean and pool view for the balance of our trip.I noticed everyone constantly smiling, both employees and guests.There was a lot to smile about.The setting was beautiful and relaxing.We enjoyed taking walks past the four fantastic lagoon smimming areas and loved the perfect temperature of the pool.Everyone we dealt with ,pool attendants,servers,front desk personell,room service parking attenda nts,(each time we requested our car from valet,two attendants would open our doors and wish us well)the concierge dept.was extremely capable and helpfull.Whatever the request,it never seemed to be a problem,they were happy to assist. Michele had a great day at the spa , she was very pleased with their services.

Trip to Oahu

I went there mainly to relax and enjoy the beach. I liked that is away from the hustle and bustle of Honolulu. The hotel is easy to navigate which is nice since some resorts are sprawling. Excellent service too.

Roy's is right across the street from the hotel - very nice restaurant. There is also an ABC store across the street that has a deli for people who want to save money on food.

Great place but hidden fees

The hotel is wonderful. Great views, rooms are excellent, saltwater ponds with live sea life, pool, beach, etc. With that being said it is geared to get you to spend money. Hawaii is expensive enough as is but here are a few things to watch out for. If you bring a rental car they will charge an extra $35/day to park it in their garage. There are not alternatives nearby so this is pretty much forced. No food or drink is allowed on the beach or at the pool, but you can buy their pricey food and drink at any time. No microwave in the hotel rooms (although they do offer a refrigerator) If you want to see a Luau then Paradise Cove is right next door in walking distance. If you are looking for an unrestricted beach, hop in the car and head down the road to the Ko'Olina Marina. Great beach with free parking and unrestricted access. All in all it is a great 4 star hotel and with that come 4 start prices. If you are staying here and know what to look out for you can make it affordable.

If you do not want to pay the inflated prices at the dining options on site, then you can walk across the main road and there are many small places to eat and a local market with great options.
