Aqua Lotus Honolulu is the place to stay when you need to get away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. I love this hotel, as I am always greeted with genuine hospitality and welcoming smiles of the ENTIRE staff! Rooms have been renovated, which are clean and simple, yet modern. The view of Diamond Head is magnificent, especially when you are greeted with the view from the balcony of your room. Hotel location is steps away from Waikiki beach and to Kapiolani Park, which is perfect to stroll along during anytime of the day. Hotel offers great amenities for all types of guests, such as free use of bicycles, beach chairs, a complimentary wine hour, yoga sessions, daily coffee/tea service in the morning and free daily newspaper. Aqua Lotus Honolulu will always be my home away from home!

Thank you for your review of the Aqua Lotus Honolulu. I am glad to see that you enjoyed your stay with us. I am glad to hear that you are as pleased with the results of our renovation as we are. We look forward to be able to open the restaurant space again soon and completing the transformation of the property back to its full service capabilities.

We stayed here for 2 nights in late September - even with a small discount we still felt the Aqua Lotus was overpriced. The hotel is small and cute, beach access via the hotel next door (very small quiet beach), nice amenities (free cruiser bike usage, yoga, wine hour, etc). However, the room was small and fairly basic. The bed was very comfortable though. You're basically paying for the location. Only one elevator for the whole hotel. Yoga was too early for us 7:30 am (when we arrived later just the night before) but we did ride bikes to dinner which was fun. A nice place to stay but about $100 overpriced. Could have stayed at a resort for just a little bit more.

It is a great location and the customer service was exceptional. They always made you feel welcome! A peaceful place with a beautiful beach.

The rooms were clean and housekeeping did a great job keeping our room clean

We are in our early 50's. Close enough to walk to big beach or shopping areas. We used the complimentary bikes almost daily, never nervous in the traffic. Everyoneof the staff was very freindly and helpful. Had a view of Diamond Head and partial view of ocean. Nice small local beach for quiet time & swimming and big beach close to swim, read or people watch. We were lucky to be there when they closed down the main beach street for the night. lots of local tents and food.
Bogarts and local health foods cafe (both are very small) are realatively close 3-4 blocks and have very good breakfast and lunchs. breakfast bowl of fruit and frozen berry concoction was worth the walk/ride.
Initially dissappointed we were not right down on the strip, but quickly learned the peace and quiet of the area was the better choice.
I see the new on site restaraunt will be opening in the near future. This would make this hotel an complete destination and excellent choice in my opinion.
My only dissappointment was that it was not located right on the beach. but in reality it did not matter other than not being able to eat meals overlooking the water. No Big deal as we just had to venture out, and that is why we vacation.

This is my first ever review because we were so happy with this hotel and service standards were above expectations. After staying in the heart of Waikiki and having a few sleepness nights because of noise levels at all hours, it was so good to be so close to things in this hotel but in a quiet location while still enjoying great views and location.Special thanks to Joshua and crew for their help with medical and insurance matters when I injured myself.
