Waikiki Resort Hotel

Welcome to the Waikiki resort hotel – redefined.

THE MODERN HONOLULU doesn’t resemble other Waikiki beach hotels, or even other Waikiki luxury hotels. Our design, extending to every room and suite, is a study in white, in sleek minimalism – a tableau that magnifies your views of the Pacific, the Waikiki skyline, the yacht harbor or our lush resort grounds, depending on your desire. The feel is organic luxury, as refined as it is relaxed: Natural light and the outside world filter in as you wish via gauzy fabric and teak louvers that slide over large-scale windows (many of our accommodations also feature private terraces). Varied woods and Terrazzo marble spa bathrooms complement the palette of whites, which washes over everything from lounge-like settees to upholstered headboards on beds blanketed in imported premium linens, offset by color-saturated iconic images of the Pacific. Every element is custom-designed for THE MODERN HONOLULU, making it one of the best hotels in Honolulu

All that’s left to do is make it yours. Which accommodation at THE MODERN HONOLULU is your custom-fit: a guestroom glimpsing the city and the ocean? A studio or one-bedroom suite that invites an entourage? Perhaps our ultimate indulgence – THE MODERN HONOLULU Penthouse Suite – where anything is possible? Let us spoil you with our details, personalized service and an unmatched set of amenities – uncommon among Waikiki hotels.

The Modern Honolulu Rooms

What’s your style: Gazing at city lights or sun-dappled waves? Lounging on your private, furnished terrace; lingering in the comfort of imported linens – or breezing through between city-to-shore jaunts? Tell us a bit about your getaway personality, and we’ll assist you in selecting the room that’s right for you at THE MODERN HONOLULU.
