Location is only a 10 minute walk from the central Waikiki hub bub. Beach access is almost direct. The hotel provides beach chairs and towels. They're also across the street from a huge park, where they offer free yoga lessons (great for beginners). The nightly *free* wine service featured a two delicious CA wines. The decor is clean and modern, the bed incredibly comfortable, and the views, while not unfettered, were gorgeous. We tried all the vegetarian options at their recently re-opened restaurant, Park, and were very pleased. The service and cocktails were also fantastic. Reception and valet couldn't have been more helpful and nice. Our reservation was a bit complicated - paid for some nights with points and had a package waiting for us - but the front desk had read the file notes and were totally prepared, with no fuss for us to deal with. No pool or fitness center, but with the beach and park jogging trail right there, who needs them? Mahalo for a great experience, Aqua Lotus!
