I've stayed many places during the last 30 years in Oahu, and I'm thrilled to have found the Lotus. What a warm, professional staff. The location allowed us to explore nearby neighborhoods and we almost felt like a local. Can't wait to return!

Lotus Hotel is a friendly, clean, well priced hotel at the Diamond Head end of Waikiki. Great access to a small almost private beach with excellent swimming. We have stayed there a number of times and we are always pleased.
