Sunrise Pool 

Sophisticated – yet surprising: That’s the duality of THE MODERN HONOLULU. Experience it for yourself at our Sunrise Pool, the heart of our Honolulu luxury resort where guests of all ages are free to unwind.

Like layers waiting your discovery, our Honolulu resort pool is set in a cool-wood deck; framed in native trees and hedges of green; softened by ferns and tropical blooms peeking from the foliage. It can feel like your personal garden paradise (thanks to the vision of landscape and garden genius Deborah Nevins of SoHo-based Deborah Nevins & Associates) – a space that at once captures the comfort of home and the liberation of the outdoors.

  • Pacific to one side; Waikiki cityscape to the other

    Dive into two of the most beautiful Waikiki pools in Oahu. Pools at The Modern Honolulu have their own signature cocktail list & dining from Morimoto's kitchen.

    There’s duality too in the view from your uncommon vantage – waterscapes to one side; the Waikiki cityscape to the other – and in the possibilities you find yourself privy to at THE MODERN HONOLULU Sunrise Pool. Join the buzz or retreat from it – your choice.

    Teak wood and white textiles dress chaises and daybeds for those seeking solace (umbrellas are optional). Naturally, there’s food and beverage service featuring THE MODERN HONOLULU’s organic, artisanal ingredients – think island-grown salads, globally-inspired small plates, signature cocktails – regardless of the Sunrise Pool spot you claim.

But you might wander into the adjacent Passageway or The Grove, where lush banquettes and wicker and wood vignettes issue an al-fresco invitation to sample Executive Chef Scott Toner’s fresh creations from breakfast into late-night.

You might also drift into the bar exclusive to the Sunrise Pool. (Find it beneath the canopy of bougainvillea and hanging lanterns, where lime picnic tables host a laidback vibe and daily drink specials.)

Late afternoon and evening commonly bring live music by local artists – cover and original songs that add another layer to the sensory experience of THE MODERN HONOLULU’s Sunrise Pool.
