The 4-star Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort has an ideal location on the west end of Waikiki Beach, considered the quieter side of Waikiki and close to the military’s beautiful Ft. DeRussey Park. This is one of the larger of the well-known, locally owned Outrigger Hotels with 858 air conditioned rooms, many of which have a city, partial or full ocean view.
Property amenities include the beautiful spa – La’aKea Spa Hawaii, located where ancient islanders were drawn to the healing waters of Kawehewehe. The Hans Hedermann Surf School offers an expert staff of trained surf instructors who can help you get up on the board for an experience you’ll long remember. Outrigger Reef also features a very reasonably priced Catamaran ride where you can see the Waikiki coastline with the Ko’olau Mountains in the background for some unbelievable photos.
The Outrigger Reef has a large swimming pool with a pool deck with teakwood chaise lounge chairs, whirlpool spa and poolside towel service. There is a Fitness Center with weights, treadmills and step machines, or of course, you could just jog down the beach toward Diamond Head for an even more satisfying exercise routine.
