“This hotel has a rich Waikiki history as one of the first ever built. Many of my repeat clients request this property because it has so many memories for them. The public spaces are iconic around the banyan tree. The pool is small, but the beach makes up for that right behind the hotel. I generally prefer to offer up the Tower rather than the Historic wing.
Agent review

An elegant beachfront resort located in the heart of Waikiki, the Moana Surfrider has been a leading provider of Hawaiian hospitality for 110 years. The traditional Victorian architecture blends beautifully with the modern luxury and convenience of the 21st century, making just a quick trip to the lobby a breathtaking experience. Each elegant guestroom is decorated with the perfect combination of modern comfort and traditional décor.

The Moana Surfrider offers unparalleled views of Waikiki Beach from its Tower Wing, Banyan Wing, and Diamond Wing. Some rooms and suites peer out over private balconies into the shimmering lights of Waikiki at night, all handsomely appointed with essential modern luxury amenities.

All accommodations are equipped with Westin’s signature beds, flat screen TVs, air conditioning, mini refrigerators, and a variety of bathroom amenities. Many rooms offer private balconies and sweeping ocean views. In-room internet access is available for a daily fee. Guests needing a bit more rest and relaxation can visit Moana Lani Spa, Waikiki’s only beachfront spa with 14 private treatment rooms and a 1,400 square foot fitness facility.

Visitors eager to spend time in the sun can relax poolside or venture just a few feet further onto beautiful Waikiki Beach. Guests staying at the Moana Surfrider have access to a variety of different dining options ranging from traditional afternoon tea service on The Veranda to exotic wine pairings at Bin 1901. Elegant oceanfront dining is available at the Beachhouse at the Moana, and an assortment of traditional Hawaiian cocktails and tapas are available at Beach Bar.

Traditional Hawaiian music and entertainment is performed nightly from 6 pm to 9 pm at The Banyon Courtyard, a magical outdoor venue adjacent to the hotel pool. Resort guests seeking some adventure can take advantage of the hotel’s partnership with Starwood Hotels and spend some quality time communicating with friendly dolphins at Sea Life Park. Visitors interested in exploring Hawaii’s unique terrain can check out several nearby hikes to picturesque waterfalls, scenic lookouts, and historical destinations.

Those looking to hit the high seas can take advantage of dinner cruises, snorkel cruises, submarine excursions, and parasailing adventures. Avid golfers may book golfing packages with the hotel or travel to one of Oahu’s 30+ golf courses on their own time. In addition to boasting numerous restaurants, bars, and nightclubs, Waikiki is a prime shopping destination and houses dozens of retailers at several locations along Kalakaua Avenue. Complimentary self-service parking is covered by the resort charge.
