Located just outside of Waikiki, this peaceful resort features beautiful modern rooms, four excellent restaurants, a private beachfront, ample water sports options, and the only swimming-with-dolphins experience on the island. From the moment you step onto the property, you'll see why this is easily one of Hawaii's best hotels.

Moana Surfrider

Situated in the heart of Waikiki, this historic hotel is one of our top "bang for your buck" properties on the island, especially considering its location, history, and amenities. The plantation-style property is elegant, modern, and clean, and actually the oldest hotel on Waikiki Beach. Highlights include a giant fitness center, an excellent spa, several on-site restaurants, nightly entertainment, pool, and full access to its famous beach.

When it comes to top-notch amenities, the property has newlyweds covered. The Swim Club features an inviting pool with cabanas, fresh cocktails, and even movie night. For dining, don't miss Mahina & Sun's, which is open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and late night.

The hotel also packs the calendar with one-of-a-kind experiences, from sunset yoga on the rooftop to singer-songwriter music sessions at the restaurant.

Lotus Honolulu at Diamond Head

This sophisticated and serene boutique property is situated in one of Waikiki's most appealing neighborhoods. Away from the fast-paced environment of Waikiki yet still conveniently located near dozens of top sites and attractions, the Lotus is a most ideal property for newlyweds.

Couples will find a number of accommodations options at the 51-room property, each one surrounded by lush Oahu landscapes. In addition to overall spacious rooms, each space comes equipped with a private lanai and views of either Diamond Head or the Pacific Ocean, plus TV, Wi-Fi and an iPod dock.
