The best on Waikiki Beach. Alohilani Resort is located right in the middle of the action on Waikiki Beach, but has no problem shining all on its own. (Which makes sense. "Alohilani" is Hawaiian for "heavenly brightness.") The Pacific Ocean follows you into the lobby where tropical fish weave a colorful rainbow in the 280,000-gallon oceanarium. Chic, new accommodations offer stunning mountain and ocean views. When you’re not out discovering the island’s incredible history or natural wonders, you can kick back at the saltwater infinity pool in a private cabana overlooking Waikiki Beach. Refresh with a cold one at the tropical beer garden, and then polish off your appetite at one of the two restaurants from Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto.
