Wish you were here indeed…
Honolulu, Hawaii… One of my most favorite destinations to visit. I’ve collected so many memories on this island and after countless visits (business and pleasure) I still don’t find myself getting island fever.
Waikiki is filled with hotels to stay, but I personally love digging deep for gems. For this trip I stayed at one of Waikiki’s newest and hippest hotels, the @SurfjackHotel. It’s also very loved by the island locals, which is how I discovered this jewel. The hotel has a retro island feel with pockets of details that will make you appreciate it more and more. They’ve also teamed up with some of Honolulu’s visionaries to build a hotel reminiscent of the city’s mid-century heyday, all the while celebrating the effervescent creative movement that’s reshaping the city today.
I’ll always encourage to explore and enjoy the island, but that won’t stop me from sharing my favorite things to do at the hotel. I think your home away from home is important and should be a major highlight of your trip. The Surfjack was filled with sweet amenities to enjoy. From the design details of your room to the cocktails + food. From the art work scattered through out the hotel to the amazing coffee baristas located in the lobby. From the most instagrammable pool to their live music at night. The Surfjack made going to bed happily and waking up easy.
