A Waikiki Beach fixture since the 1960s, the resort underwent a multi-million dollar makeover. The property now has five restaurants and bars, a “superpool” with two freshwater swimming pools, water slide and whirlpools, and the new Infinity Edge pool—which is perched right over the ocean, creating a mirage where the pool and sea merges into one body of water. Pool-goers can enjoy drinks and meals from the Edge of Waikiki pool bar. Most of the guestrooms have views of the ocean, and are fitted with standard amenities such as cable television, coffee makers, and high-speed internet (additional fees may apply).
