Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort 

Contemporary design with all the Hawaiian trimmings

Beachfront setting and located just minutes away from oodles of bars and restaurants on Kalakaua Ave; you can see why Outrigger Reef is high on our hitlist.

Get yourself primed and ready to hula into the sunset and sink your toes into the sand on the western end of Waikiki beach. Perfectly poised to indulge in the chic shopping scene, perouse the menus of the many local eateries and soak up some Oahu sunshine.

Why we love Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort

  • The ingredients used in the dishes served at Monkeypod Kitchen have been sourced from local farms and ranches

  • It's worth upgrading to a club room, not least for the beach views from the private lounge where sunrise and sunset drinks are served

  • Immerse in the local culture with one of the many activities - learn how to hula or perhaps how to play the ukulele

  • Head to Kani Ka Pila Grille - a popular venue where local musicians perform

Monkeypod Kitchen by Merriman
Working in partnership with local farmers, brewers and distillers, the menus here, created by award-winning chef Peter Merriman, use organic ingredients.

Kani Ka Pila Grille
A casual diner with nightly live Hawaiian music.

Kani Ka Pila means 'let's play music' and is the perfect spot to listen to contemporary Hawaiian music whilst indulging in poke bowls and the popular huli huli chicken.

There's a weekly schedule of cultural activities including hula on the beach, ukulele lessons and a sunset ceremony. Further afield you can make a poignant visit to Pearl Harbor.

Go snorkelling, kayak along the coastline or join a catamaran cruise. Stand-up paddleboard and surf lessons are available on Waikiki Beach.
