Need to know




After a $125 million renovation, every square inch of the ‘Alohilani has been updated with a clean, minimalist aesthetic and laid back atmosphere. Guests are awed by the 200,000 gallon Oceanarium filled with colorful fish that greets them when they walk into the lobby. 


The 5th floor is where it’s at with 2 Morimoto restaurants, an infinity pool (which was named one of America’s most Instagram-worthy pools by In Style Magazine) with cabanas and water loungers, fire pits, and cocktails. There’s also a Keiki Pool for families. 


‘Alohilani sits on the east end of the Waikiki strip, right across from Kuhio Beach Park. You can walk to the beach, restaurants, and shops, but it’s a little quieter than the busiest parts of Waikiki.

Covid Specific

  • They used to have a kids club called Monkeypod. It could come back after Covid. We’ll see. 

  • Infinity pool max capacity is 30 people due to government mandates. 

  • Swell Restaurant offers knock-and-drop room delivery and carryout services.
