Say aloha to Honolulu hotels
The most populous and visited of Hawaii's nine islands, Oahu is home not only to the state capital, but to world-class surf breaks and economy-driving pineapple farms. Where lush volcanic mountainside slides down to the cityscape, you will find Oahu hotels tracing the glorious coastline to Honolulu's iconic Waikiki district.
Hotels abound in Honolulu – set on the beach or closer to town – including the 5-star Kahala Hotel and Resort, Sheraton Waikiki and many more. Beyond the personal service and added comforts, some resorts even offer extras such as surf lessons, ukulele classes and traditional luau dinners.
Overnights outside Oahu
The island of Oahu may draw the biggest crowds, but there is plenty more Hawaii to go round. Intrepid travellers and adrenaline seekers will feel right at home on Hawaii's Big Island – the Castle Halii Kai promises a comfortable ocean-side stay – while those who relish relaxation may prefer Maui.
Maui's two Westin Resorts have a selection of villas and spa suites that aim to capture the essence of Hawaiian spirit. The northernmost island of Kauai also has you covered for 4-star Hawaii accommodation, with the Courtyard by Marriott and Sheraton Kauai at the foreshore. If time is on your side, island-hop across the state and discover Hawaii's captivating diversity.
Classic Hawaii by the beach
While a Hawaiian holiday may conjure up images of waking up and walking from your bed to the beach, not all hotels have the benefit of being situated directly on the South Pacific sands. While there is plenty of stunning coastline to go round, not every hotel has the luxury of being beachside.
Resorts that are in a prime position of being surf-adjacent include the iconic Royal Hawaiian – the "pink palace of the Pacific" – and the Sheraton Waikiki in Honolulu. On the island of Maui, the Hyatt Regency sits on the beautiful Kaanapali Beach, while Marriott's Maui Ocean Club is just down the beach in Lahaina.
