The Rockwell group designed rooms that feel crisp and clean with a distinctively Hawaiian aura.

TRY IT ON:

TASTE: World-renowned Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto brings his signature Asian fusion cuisine (flavors from China, Korea, Thailand and Japan) to the Alohilani Resort. The culture-rich food crafted at Morimoto Asia will satiate even the most picky gourmands with a once in a life time dining experience. For something a little more low-key, Morimoto’s Momosan Waikiki restaurant located on the property (one of Travel Curator’s favorites) has super tasty noodle dishes and plenty of sakes to pair.

#WTF: Accessing one of Waikiki Beach’s greatest attractions is as simple as having a drink at the O bar in the lobby. The resort features a two level, 28,000-gallon Oceanarium that contains an endless variety of fish unique to the reefs of Oahu. At the Alohilani, guests not only get gorgeous views of the ocean, but a truly unmatched experience of Hawaii’s aquatic life… in the hotel lobby. You don’t even have to go snorkeling to witness boldest of colors under the sea!
