The Ilikai Hotel

The Ilikai Hotel has been known as the gateway to Waikiki for many years. It has an ideal location overlooking the ocean and close to both Ala Moana Shopping Center and all of Waikiki. The rooms are very spacious with a tropical décor and all have beautiful mountain, city or ocean views. The room amenities include cable TV, coffeemaker with complimentary coffee and tea, hair dryer, bath amenities, room service and much more. Children age 18 and under can stay in parent's room with existing bedding at no extra charge.

The open air main lobby and courtyard is a delightful spot to sit and relax and enjoy the view. You can wander through the courtyard which leads to the main pool or a pathway to the beach. The enlarged pool area is home to a new whirlpool and poolside bar and is a terrific spot to watch sunsets. Don't miss the nightly Hawaiian torchlighting ceremony, an Ilikai tradition going back 35 years. They also feature free Hawaiian entertainment poolside every Thursday to Saturday from 6 to 8 pm.

The Ilikai Hotel has some excellent restaurants on their property, including three favorites of local residents. For an unparalleled view of downtown Honolulu, Waikiki, the mountains, the ocean and everything in between, have dinner at Sarento's, a wonderful Italian restaurant on top of the Ilikai. The view from any angle is simply stunning. Canoes at the Ilikai features American dining and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and then there is Tanaka of Tokyo, a constant winner of Best Japanese Restaurant in Honolulu in a reader's choice poll, it features teppenyaki-style cooking (they cook, you watch) and is great fun for the whole family.

You can hop on The Bus and be in Ala Moana Center or Ward Center in just minutes, or go in the opposite direction and be in the heart of Waikiki in the same amount of time. The views are fabulous, the atmosphere is one of casual elegance, the staff is not only professional, but also caring. These are the things that make a hotel special and the Ilikai has them all.
