A fabulous property directly across from Diamond Head. Very special, very romantic, light years from your typical bustling Waikiki hotel. Terrific service, beautiful ocean view rooms tastefully decorated and surprisingly very reasonably priced. A crowning touch is the Park Restaurant located in the hotel. Very creative menu wonderfully executed with top notch service. Looking forward to returning on our next... More

The room is bright, airy and both the room and bathroom are spacious and comfortable. It is modern and the staff are friendly. It is an easy walk to the main Waikiki area along the beach and park. We ate at the restaurant 'Park' on our first night as we were exhausted from international travel- it was fantastic- food was... More

The Good: - The rooms look new, with a modern decor that is kept clean. - The hotel is a little off the beaten path of Waikiki in a quiet part of Waikiki, yet still with walking distance of the shopping, restaurants, and bars. I prefer the quiet area, as I come to Hawaii to relax - not eat at... More

We stayed at aqua lotus for our first trip to Waikiki and I must say I was highly disappointed by trip advisor rating. First let me say the hotel is beautiful inside. The rooms are cleaned and service is great the problem is those are the only positives I can say. The hotel is far from any action which made... More

This was our first trip to Hawaii and Honolulu, and I couldn't have been more pleased with Aqua Lotus. I had heard that Waikiki was big and bustling like Miami is to Florida so I assumed all hotel options would be huge resorts. What a delight that our travel agent recommended Aqua Lotus. Every evening, I felt like I was... More
