The view from our room. Eventhough we got the room that has a partial view of the ocean it is still a winner. Also we got a complementary lei necklaces that are made from a real flowers.
We stayed here for 3 nights and so far we are happy and satisfied for what we paid for. Great location and easy access to the beach. Our room is nice enough that we can get our rest well, beddings are comfy and clean, fresh towel and free wifi. If you are on a budget, I recommend staying at this resort.
WHAT TO DO AND SEE
Pearl Harbor / WW II Valor in the Pacific National Monument
Pearl Harbor is one of the most historical destinations in the United States and has four distinct locations. Each with its own story to tell,each as compelling as the next. None that you’ll want to miss! An absolute must for your Hawaiian vacation. Tons of history.
USS Arizona Memorial
USS Bowfin Submarine
Diamond Head State Monument
It’s amazingly beautiful. Be prepared to hike/climb the 0.8 miles (1.6 miles round trip) to the summit of Diamond Head. It is steep, strenuous and uneven in some areas. Bring sturdy walking shoes, water, hats, and sunscreen.
National Memorial Cemetery Of The Pacific
The resting place for more than 25,000 victims of three American Wars – World War II, Korean War and Vietnam War – this is truly the “Cemetery of Heroes.” Punchbowl was formed some 75,000 to 100,000 years ago during the Honolulu period of secondary volcanic activity. A crater resulted from the ejection of hot lava through cracks in the old coral reefs that, at the time, extended to the foot of the Koolau Mountain Range. Of special note is a monument honoring Hawaii-born astronaut Ellison Onizuka, who perished aboard the Challenger space shuttle in 1986. Also noteworthy are the Courts of the Missing, white stone tablets bearing the names of those missing in action from World War II.
King Kamehameha I Statue
In front of the Aliiolani Hale building is the King Kamehameha I Statue. Facing Iolani Palace on the corner of King and Mililani streets, this landmark depiction of the warrior king who united the Hawaiian Islands emits a sense of strength and unity as he stands with outstretched arms.
International Market Place
For the gifts and souvenirs this is the perfect place to shop. There is plenty of vendors so you can find anything you could be looking for there. Excellent place to just walk through and see everything. If you stay at Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort this is just across the street.
Fun change from the very commercialized, high end shopping and dining you’ll find in downtown Waikiki. Great boutiques with local goods, like stationary, pottery, jewelry, housewares, etc. Parking is a little bit hard to find.
