It’s almost a different world here, with Kapiolani Park providing a buffer from the frenzy of Waikiki. The hotel’s best feature is its location right on Kaimana Beach, where the crowds are thinner and the water cleaner. The rooms can be a bit tight, but the pricier ones face the ocean straight on, with no obstructions, and have lanai where you can lose yourself to the aquamarine blues stretching all the way to the horizon. Start your day with breakfast at the Hau Tree Lānai restaurant, under the canopy of the age-old tree.
