Frommers review:

Featured as Frommer’s Exceptional Choice in Hawaii.

“It’s known for opulent style, with the Halekulani Suite famously decorated by Vera Wang and the heated pool’s floor set with 1.2 million pieces of glass tile to form an orchid-shaped mosaic. Most rooms offer exclusivity — private gardens, plunge pool, butler, even interactive cooking lessons with a Halekulani chef.”

“Evincing modern sophistication, this family-owned resort lives up to its name, which means ʻHouse Befitting Heaven.’ It’s an all-encompassing experience of gracious living, not merely a place to crash.”

“Venerable Halekulani celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2017, but it’s a far cry from its original five-cottage format offered at $6 (£5) a night. Today the five-star property’s two room towers, tropical interior lawn, Italian-glass tiled pool and seaside dining offer unmatched Waikiki luxury.”

Moana Surfrider Westin Resort Honolulu, Hawaii
Expert reviews
CNN review:

“Built in 1901, the Moana Surfrider is the oldest hotel in Waikiki. Its beaux-arts architecture makes it the only hotel in Honolulu with the feel of a plantation mansion, complete with rocking chairs on the verandas and staff in historical dress.”

Telegraph review:

“This Waikiki Grand Dame is beloved for its historic charm and relaxed vibe. The dozens of rocking chairs lining its sleepy porch have consumed many a holiday, and the Moana Lani Spa, offering above-the-waves treatments, may just be the best in Waikiki.”
