Aqua Palms Waikiki

The 3-star Aqua Palms Waikiki is located just 1 block to the beach and across from the Hilton Hawaiian Village and has just recently gone through an extensive renovation. Affordably elegant and exceptionally retro-chic, The Aqua Palms Waikiki is both AAA 3-Diamond rated and the only off-beach Waikiki resort hotel to consistently be a Top Ten-rated hotel by TripAdvisor. A short walk takes you to beautiful Ft. DeRussey Park and one of the widest beaches in the Waikiki area, complete with a park-like setting, barbeque grills, picnic tables and one of the best spots to watch sunsets.


Property amenities include a lovely small outdoor swimming pool with sundeck, Fitness Center and other complimentary amenities such as local weekday newspaper, complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the property and a Manager’s Reception every Wednesday from 4:30 pm to 5:30 pm and coffee & tea service in the Lobby 24/7.


For casual dinning, IHOP Restaurant is conveniently located in the hotel adjacent to the lobby area. There are also some great restaurants close to Aqua Palms, including the extremely popular, Eggs N’ Things on Kalakaua Avenue, Cheeseburger in Paradise and Benihana of Tokyo in the Hilton. Further along in Waikiki you can find lots of action at Duke’s Canoe Club or reasonable prices at the very popular Tiki’s Grill & Bar, both with local entertainment.


This is a lovely affordable boutique hotel in a great location. Away from the noise of Waikiki, yet close enough to walk or hop on a bus to be in the center of the action, then back in the evening enjoying the quiet of the Aqua Palms Waikiki. The property gets rave reviews from guests and has many return visitors, so it is certainly worthwhile looking into.
