The hotel is usually around 30-minutes travel from the international airport, but given you are in a city, sometimes the travel time will vary.

Things To Do

Waikiki is one of the best known and sought-after destinations in the world. When you think of Waikiki, you immediately imagine the first-rate beaches and the laid-back tropical lifestyle it has to offer. Travel here and you won’t be disappointed! Waikiki actually has 8 different beach areas, each offering something slightly different, and the Queen Kapiolani Hotel is located in the best position to enjoy them all. Delight in a large range of water-based activities such as world-renowned surfing, paddle boarding, kayaking, snorkeling and more. This spot has it all, including a lovely promenade – perfect for a leisurely stroll through the sights. Pearl Harbour is close by and the visitors’ centre makes for an interesting and enlightening trip. The hotel is directly across the road from the Honolulu Zoo and has a large number of restaurants and bars within walking distance. The hotel also offers the Deck restaurant on-site, which serves a wide range of exquisite western-style food. If you’re looking for a physical activity that isn’t on the beach, why not take a hike up nearby Diamond Head where you will be granted with captivating views of the surrounding ocean and city. The rest of Oahu island awaits you with endless natural beauty to explore.

I’ve been staying at this hotel since 1999. I love how close it is to everything – across the street from the Honolulu Zoo, a few blocks from the aquarium and just steps to the beach and Kapionali Park. The on-site pool and bar are brilliant. I can’t wait to go back next year!
