This huge resort lives up to its regal name with some of the best service and most luxurious surroundings on the island. The huge gardens are impeccably maintained, and there’s a wealth of activities, from ukulele lessons to hula classes, on offer on site. The hotel also has one of the state’s best spas, Abhasa.
Sand and surf come together beautifully at one of America’s most iconic stretches of coast. A desirable resort destination since the early 20th century, Waikiki is home not only to golden sands and flocks of surfers, but also attractions such as Honolulu Zoo and the Waikiki Aquarium.
