Moana Surfrider, A Westin Resort & Spa

Open since 1901, this welcoming oceanfront resort blends a sense of history with contemporary facilities.

Affectionately known as the ‘First Lady of Waikiki’, the Moana Surfrider offers a traditionally warm Hawaiian welcome. Elegant interiors complete with chandeliers and sweeping staircases lead through to an outdoor pool and private beach area. Dine on fresh premium local produce at Beachhouse at the Moana, and sample fine wines at Vintage 1901. The oceanfront Beach Club at the Moana offers breakfast, evening appetizers, beer and wine for guests who book a Banyan Classic Ocean Club Room or a Suite. Access to the Lounge can also be booked as an add-on on top of any room type. Guests can also dine at sister hotels Sheraton Waikiki, Sheraton Princess Kaiulani and The Royal Hawaiian, A Luxury Collection Resort.

The Banyan Courtyard – where a 120-year-old rare Banyan tree takes centre stage – is the place to be for afternoon and evening entertainment, when live music includes a Hawaiian duo, hula, acoustic guitar and contemporary Hawaiian soloists. The entertainment here recreates the concept of the famous ‘Hawaii Calls’ radio programme from 1935, where live performances from the Banyan Courtyard were broadcast to stations all over the world. Moana Lani Spa is Waikiki’s first oceanfront spa, where signature treatments include the Kona Coffee and Vanilla Facial – using organic Hawaiian Kona Coffee, Kauai clay and vanilla, and the Na Mele massage – which incorporates traditional lomi techniques alongside relaxing sounds of Hawaii.

Rooms are housed in the historic Banyan Wing, contemporary Tower Wing or Diamond Wing with views of Waikiki Beach and Honolulu. All have Westin’s signature Heavenly Bed®. For a Juliet balcony and stunning ocean views, opt for a Deluxe Ocean Diamond Room.
