Lounging by a resort pool doesn’t have to feel cliché. The landscape can be an escape – with service so personal, views so rare, a vibe so laidback – it at once captures the comfort of home and the liberation of the outdoors. Welcome to your personal paradise at THE MODERN HONOLULU: our Sunrise and Sunset Pools, surrounded by stylish spaces for lounging and dining, and our resort fitness center.
For access to everything at the heart of the resort, center yourself at THE MODERN HONOLULU’s Sunrise Pool. Oversized chaises and daybeds – umbrellas optional – edge this pool at our Waikiki beach resort. Servers approach with food and beverage selections. Afternoons and evenings frequently bring live music by local artists. The views never disappoint. (It may take you some time to soak in the panorama spanning the Waikiki skyline to the yacht harbor and the Pacific beyond.) Adjacent Passageway and The Grove, as well as the Sunrise Pool’s exclusive bar, present chic vignettes for sharing a drink or a meal flaunting THE MODERN HONOLULU Executive Chef Scott Toner’s finesse with organic, local, artisanal ingredients – signature cocktails included.SUNRISE POOL
Up the rich Brazilian ipe staircase from the Sunrise Pool, our adult guests indulge in an unexpected oasis amid Honolulu’s urban tableau: THE MODERN HONOLULU’s Sunset Pool. Here, too, an exclusive bar and food service cater to any whim, though your visual sense will be served first: Bright-white chaises straddle the rooftop beach and lagoon, deep blue with glass tiles custom-designed by Yves Klein. Upstairs and down, the pools at our Honolulu luxury hotel were landscaped by design genius Deborah Nevins of SoHo-based Deborah Nevins & Associates. The effect is uncommon, unforgettable: Organic walls of green. Structural trees. Pinks and purples peeking from hibiscus and bougainvillea. It’s easy here to imagine yourself in your personal garden paradise – enhanced only by those shimmering views of Waikiki, the Ala Wai yacht harbor and the Pacific.SUNSET POOL
Steps from the Sunset Pool, you’ll find THE MODERN HONOLULU fitness center. Sleek in black, steel and white, it’s ideal for exercising when your idea of escaping doesn’t apply to your fitness routine. For runners and walkers, our staff shares directions and tips for hitting Honolulu’s iconic trails and local-favorite parks – some located just steps from the resort.
