Queen Kapiolani Hotel


Soak up the Hawaii style and incredible views from this independently-owned-and-run hotel.

Life is about enjoying the cool and quirky style and the uninterrupted views of Diamond Head at this landmark Waikiki hotel. It’s all white-washed walls, fresh pastel colours and décor that depicts the island’s renowned surf scene in fun and funky artworks; you’ll know exactly where you are here. Every has been thoughtfully remodelled including the pool deck which may just have the best views of any pool in the area. There’s a bar and grill just a few steps away from the pools edge so it’s not too far to move from your sun lounger to grab a cocktail and some all-American dishes which have been infused with some Hawaiian flavours.  Knots Coffee Roasters is the hotel’s other drinking and dining venue and it has a menu of light dishes, coffees, teas and speciality drinks as well as a selection of signature cocktails – mai tai anyone?

We love the new look rooms at Queen Kapiolani and whether you go for a simple Standard Room, a Cityview Room or a highly-recommended Diamond Head View Room you know that it’s going to be comfortable, full of light and refreshingly modern. The Junior Suites are a bit more spacious and have either Diamond Head or Waikiki Beach views.
