A Personal Journey Through O’ahu: Unveiling Waikiki's Finest Resorts  | Caitlin Bailey - Sojourney Travel

Aloha, fellow travelers! I'm excited to take you on a journey through the enchanting beauty of O’ahu, known as Hawaii's majestic "Gathering Place." Join me as I share my firsthand experiences exploring the vibrant shores of Waikiki Beach and uncovering some of its finest 4-star resorts. From stunning ocean views to delectable culinary delights, get ready to be captivated by the allure of paradise on this island. Let's dive right in! 

Waikīkī Beach Marriott Resort and Spa:  

Situated along Honolulu's main road, the Waikīkī Beach Marriott Resort and Spa is the epitome of Waikīkī’s iconic charm. Although this beachfront property is positioned across the street from the beach, it'sjust a few steps away from the sand. Here, you can immerse yourself in the vibrant rhythm of activity and music at the Queensbreak rooftop deck, one of Honolulu’s largest outdoor experiential spaces. Unwind on the family-friendly pool deck, relax in cabanas, or indulge in the adults-only pool.   

Additionally, guests can enjoy the brand-new Nanea Game Room (for ages 21 and up), featuring shuffleboard, foosball, air hockey, and more. Following its recent 2020 redesign, this resort seamlessly blends Hawaiian heritage with modern comforts. The Oceanfront Rooms of the Kealohilani Tower (ideally on the 11th floor or above) make for breathtaking views of  Waikīkī Beach, perfect for unwinding after a day of adventure. And with two Starbucks locations onsite, your caffeine fix is just steps away!  

Be sure to reserve your spot at the Paina Waikiki Luau, where you'll experience a unique dinner party luau complete with incredible food, music, and entertainment. And don't leave without sipping on the Queen’s Mai Tai and Blue Hawaii cocktails – they're a must-try!  

Sheraton Waikiki Beach Resort:  

For those craving the ultimate beachfront getaway, the Sheraton Waikiki Beach Resort is your go-to destination. Located right on the beach and within walking distance of shopping and dining, this resort offers unparalleled convenience and luxury. 

You can indulge in culinary delights like the Vanilla & Orange Sweet Bread French Toast and Classic Eggs Benedict at Kai Market, all while enjoying panoramic views of Diamond Head and the resort's stunning infinity pool – the largest in North America!   

Families seeking privacy will love the spacious Kai Ocean Suite, offering expansive living spaces and stunning views of  Waikīkī, Diamond Head, and the Infinity Edge Pool from two private lanais. With an adult only Infinity Edge Pool (ages 16 and up) and a family friendly Helumoa Playground Pool, the Sheraton is the perfect choice for families and couples alike.

OUTRIGGER Waikiki Beach Resort:   

At OUTRIGGER Waikiki Beach Resort, you can immerse yourself in the laid-back charm of surf culture, where the spirit of aloha thrives. Named after legendary surfer Duke Kahanamoku, Duke's Waikiki offers a culinary journey through contemporary island cuisine, accompanied by live music and hula performances. Treat yourself to iconic dishes such as the Honey Mac Nut Shrimp, Poke Tacos and Kimo's Original Hula Pie, featuring macadamia nut ice cream on a cookie crust, all while taking in breathtaking views of Diamond Head.   

In addition to the great food at Duke’s, this resort also offers great entertainment options. Don't miss the chance to experience the vibrant nightlife at Blue Note Hawaii, where Grammy-nominated artist Henry Kapono and local talent electrify the stage with captivating performances.   

Elevate your stay with a Diamond Head One Bedroom Suite Club Level, complete with two balconies for soaking in the stunning vistas. And be sure to visit the exclusive Voyager 47 Club Lounge, where you can sample premium beverages and pupus while basking in the beauty of  Waikīkī Beach. With a variety of accommodations to choose from, including city view, partial ocean view, ocean view, and oceanfront rooms, the OUTRIGGER offers something for every type of traveler.
