We travel all over the world and stay at some of the nicest hotels. However, The Outrigger on Waikiki is our favorite hotel as it is outstanding on every level. The rooms are beautiful and the view is spectacular. We go to sleep to the soothing sound of the waves and wake up to the same sound! We probably spend more time in our rooms at the Outrigger because of the amazing view (we always ask for the Diamond Head side), sip champagne mimosas on our bacony in the morning and have a mai tai before dinner in the evening and just enjoy at night. The Outrigger also has several amazing restaurants that we love and eat there every day of our 7 days trips. Duke's is right on the water and has the best sushi, calamari, mahi mahi and mai tai's on the beachfront. Always just a fun place you can walk in a bathing suit and sit and enjoy the open air ambiance. The Hula Grill located upstairs is beyond description.....the food is a culinary delight .....some of the best dishes in the world. As soon as we step off the plane all we are thinking about is Duke's for lunch and the Hula Grill for Dinner. You can rent umbrella and chaise lounges right in front of the hotel, a beautiful pool and jacuzzi and the most friendly staff we have ever met. There is a reason that they are one of the most successful hotels on Waikiki and the reason that people keep coming back. We were there six times last year.......our paradise!"
