Walk Right To One Of Hawaii's Best Beaches From This Vibrant Luxury Resort

It's easy to assume that the majority of Americans have dreamed of going to Hawaii at some point in their lives. The tropical Pacific islands are well known as being one of the top honeymoon destinations with some of the world's best beaches. For American citizens, a visit to Hawaii means the passports can be left at home despite the atmosphere and vibe feeling like a world's away from mainland USA. And even with all of the black sand, white sand, and colorful beaches in general, there's no arguing that one of the best is Waikiki Beach.

Located in central Honolulu, Waikiki Beach is one of the most popular tourist destinations, not only because it's so conveniently located, but because of just how beautiful it is. If you want to stay right on the world-famous Waikiki, look no further than the luxurious Alohilani Resort Waikiki Beach. This four-star resort offers elegant dining, prime beach access, a private pool, and even revitalizing treatments after a few too many piña coladas in the sun.

Luxury rooms and optimal dining

There are 839 rooms total at Aliholani Resort Waikiki Beach, ranging from guest rooms to suites. For some of the best views, go for the Diamond Head ocean view, which, as the name suggests, provides sights of mountainous Diamond Head in the distance. If extra space is what you crave, go for the two-bedroom seascape suite, at a whopping 1,300 square feet.

The rooms will leave you feeling extra cozy, but when you start to work up an appetite, the dining options at the resort are just as comforting. La Bettola offers rustic Italian fare, and Makana Lani is ideal for a quick meal with their abundant buffet. Nothing beats a hot summer day like some ice cream, so head to Double Fat Ice Cream on-site for a local flavor. If you're craving something more familiar, Häagan Dazs is available, too. Morimoto Asia Waikiki is a high-end restaurant run by Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto, and you don't even need to leave the resort to try this world-class cuisine.

Waikiki Beach right out your doorstep

You won't need to go far to enjoy some of Oahu's best sights, and you can rent paddle boards, fruit-shaped tubes, and surfboards from Beach Candy Waikiki. And if you really want to put a surfboard to use like the locals do, take a lesson at Jamie O'Brien School of Surf. 

If you'd rather take in the views of Waikiki from the comfort of a pool, join the festivities each week at their Saturday Day Club called "Tan Lines & Tequila." The party goes from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. with a live DJ. If you find it leaves you feeling a bit dehydrated come Sunday, head to the resort's Drip Hawaii, an IV lounge that restores your body's vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals.

Despite the luxury that comes with a stay at Alohilani Resort Waikiki Beach, should you find yourself with itchy feet ready to explore the rest of the island, the resort has a special pick-up and drop-off area for booking made with Sixt Rent a Car. There are plenty of other parts of Oahu worth exploring, including Hanauma Bay State Park for world-class snorkeling, and the Pearl Harbor National Memorial for history buffs. You can also go on an epic waterfall hike to see Manoa Falls, Likeke Falls, or Waimea Falls.
