Built in the late 19th century, the Moana Surfrider was the first hotel to be built in Waikiki.
2365 Kalakaua Avenue
Often referred to as the ‘first lady of Waikiki’, this landmark oceanfront hotel is housed in a gorgeous colonial building in the heart of Waikiki. Though located on a busy main street, this hotel is a serene sanctuary, where you can go for a dip in the freshwater swimming pool, lounge at the beach bar, or dine at any of its restaurants.
