Mahalo to Jennifer Zammikiel for sharing the nice shot with us for Aloha Friday Photos. Jennifer took this shot in front of the Hilton Hawaiian Village at Waikiki Beach while visiting in July of 2017. She said, “Hawaii is always breathtaking and never disappoints.”

Happy Aloha Friday!

Aloha!”A lovely view of Waikiki paradise!”

By MM Travel and Tours in Travel

 

Mahalo to Darrin Laing for sharing this great pic with us for Aloha Friday Photos. Darrin’s caption is, “A lovely view of Waikiki paradise!” Lovely, indeed!

Note that Darrin’s photo was taken months before COVID-19 struck Hawaii. Waikiki looks different now with the 14-day quarantine and the stay at home orders. The Star-Advertiser created a video showing scenes of an empty Waikiki.

 

The current emptiness is almost unfathomable, but Waikiki will eventually be lively again. Happier times will come.

Enjoy the beauty and tranquility of the Hokulani Waikiki rooftop bar

By MM Travel and Tours in Travel

Hokulani Waikiki by Hilton Grand Vacations is our favorite place to stay in Waikiki. The rooms are beautiful and spacious, and the staff is so warm and friendly, they remember your name and go out of their way to make your stay special. But one of the best parts is the Hokulani Waikiki rooftop bar.

The pool here is small and not very deep so won’t appeal to everyone but it is just the right temperature to cool off, and the view is unbeatable. You can see right down Kalakaua Ave to Diamond Head peeking over the top of the high-rise at the other end, directly from within the pool. Look in the other direction and you can see the ocean and even make out the surfers on Waikiki beach. The pool makes a great place to laze an afternoon away while soaking up the Hawaiian sunshine.

Surrounding the pool are numerous loungers, tables and chairs, and sofas along with plenty of shaded areas. There is a small bar offering a selection of beers and cocktails with friendly bartenders, iced water is always available for free. The resort provides large fluffy towels and even sunscreen!

The best part of the roof is the eight cabanas offered free to guests on a first-come basis. Each cabana has a TV and a small fridge, a day bed and table and chairs as well as a safe for your valuables. The Hokulani Waikiki rooftop bar is one of our favorite places to have lunch in all of Waikiki.

You can buy ready-made salads or sandwiches and snacks from the ABC store downstairs or venture a little further to the Food Pantry for provisions. The suites all have kitchens, so we buy a few days’ worth of snacks and lunches and head up to the roof for a relaxing lunch, at our own pace. We can spend a whole day up here, eating, drinking and sunbathing, with very little interruption – it’s very relaxing.

While we mostly use this space during the day, the roof is open until 10pm every night and has spectacular nighttime views.

Every Monday night they have a movie on the roof which makes this an even better place to grab a pizza and take in the latest blockbuster or classic movie. The resort even provides popcorn.

I would recommend the Hokulani Waikiki rooftop bar to adults traveling without children or to those with very small children who don’t require a large sprawling resort-like pool.

Hope to see
you on the roof!
