Even the views outside the elevator are astounding at this eight-story hotel/condo, which practically has its toes in the sand of beautiful Keawakapu Beach. Every unit in the 1973 building is oceanfront (though many lack views). Most, if not all, have been renovated with contemporary, island-inspired furnishings. The north-facing hotel rooms, which account for half of the units, have no lanais and are small enough to be filled by their king-size beds and kitchenettes. The one- and two-bedroom condos have full kitchens, sitting areas, and small lanais that overlook the glittering Pacific and several islands on the horizon. There’s a surf shack on-site, along with a gourmet grocery/deli, oceanfront restaurant, and yoga studio. Fun fact: The lobby’s iconic turtle mural appears in the film Just Go With It.
