Surfjack Hotel & Swim Club 

Hip hospitality

With its modern Hawaiian décor, Surfjack has the social vibe of an upscale hostel; full of people who still travel with backpacks, but not so many shoestrings.

Situated on Lewers Street, just a short walk to Waikiki Beach, rock up at this chilled-out haven for people in search of an epic wave, somewhere to hang-out with other like-minded travellers, or get centered with some onsite meditation classes.

Despite being one of many hotels in this popular part of town, Surfjack’s unique charm and character ensures it still stands out from the crowd. They have teamed up with local artisans to curate unique furniture and artwork to feature throughout, staff uniforms have been crafted by local designers and careful attention to detail delivers an easy-going atmosphere without losing its contemporary edge (and mod-cons we love so much).

Why we love Surfjack Hotel & Swim Club

Grab a toastie or bagel from ARVO, one of Waikiki's most popular coffee shops. Chef Erik Leong showcases the flavours of Hawaii at Mahini & Sun's, a popular spot with locals especially in the evenings when the live music starts.

Mahini & Sun's
Open for lunch and dinner, there are plenty of classic Hawaiian dishes on the menu here

This popular coffee shop is famed for its avocado toast.

Mahini & Sun's is a great meeting spot, especially in the evening when there is live music from local musicians.

Live music or nightly movie screenings by the pool are a great way to end a day after exploring hidden corners of the island (which the staff are keen to show you). When you’re looking for a change of scenery, explore the many shops en route down to the sandy beach.

Guests at Surfjack automatically become a member of the Swim Club. Yet another great meeting spot where artists, musicians and filmmakers hang out. If you want to catch a Waikiki wave, then you also get two hours complimentary surf board rental.

Locally Paid Fees & Taxes: Expect to pay approximately $35 per room per night for hotel resort fees and local taxes.
