Hawaii Aloha Travel > Hawaii Hotels > Ilikai Lite
I always have to explain the Ilikai Lite brand; which offers more affordable accommodations within the hotel. You still get to stay in this wonderful iconic property with all of the amenities. Pesca the new restaurant is Amazing!
Agent review

The Ilikai Lite is one of Waikiki’s most historic properties. Made famous in the opening sequence of the massive television hit series Hawaii 5-0 (the old one and the modern reboot), the Ilikai Lite features two swimming pools, luxury dining at Pesca Waikiki Beach at the top of the hotel, casual dining on-property at Cinnamon’s at The Ilikai, and gourmet coffee at Aroma Caffe. Local favorite Dave’s Ice Cream is also located at Ilikai Lite to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Our spacious rooms and suites are thoughtfully designed to be your island home-away-from-home. With expansive city and ocean views, each room is a serene retreat with contemporary furnishings, plush amenities, and expansive lanais that invite the Hawaiian breezes right into your living space.

Whether you’re starting your day with a swim in our sun-kissed pool or savoring the sunset from our rooftop restaurant, Ilikai Lite promises moments of relaxation and rejuvenation. Located just steps away from Waikiki Beach, our guests have easy access to the shimmering Pacific, lively beachside activities, and a plethora of shopping and dining options.

There are multiple dining options within one block of Ilikai Lite. Ala Moana Shopping Center, the largest outdoor shopping center in the world, is minutes away over Ala Wai Canal Bridge, as is the Ala Moana Beach Park and Recreation Area. The famous Duke Kahanamoku Lagoon is also next door.

Ilikai Lite features a nightly torch-lighting ceremony every evening at sunset, kicked of with the traditional blowing of the Hawaiian conch. Live Hawaiian music is featured every Friday and Sunday evening.

Ilikai Lite is an attractive option for families, and not just because guest keiki (children) get a free ice cream from Dave’s (every day of your stay). There is a bathers’ elevator for swimmers at both of the property’s pools, and free Wi-Fi to keep all of your devices connected. Both the Mountain View and Ocean View rooms offer full kitchen and private balcony.

Like many Waikiki hotels, Ilikai Lite offers its guests free admission to the historic Bishop Museum and the Honolulu Museum of Art. The famous Ilikai Lite has helped set the standard for value, quality, service, dining, and on-property activities in Waikiki.
