Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Five- to 10-minute walk from Waikiki center
  • Near Fort DeRussy Beach Park
  • Kitchenettes or full kitchens available
  • All rooms have private lanais or patios
  • Spacious gym with wall-mounted TV
  • Lovely patio overlooking the park
  • Outdoor pool with shady cabanas and lounge chairs
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • On-site spa and salon

Cons

  • Not directly on beach
  • Decor is slightly dated
  • No on-site restaurant
  • Some noise from street

Bottom Line

Part of the Aqua Resorts chain, the 217-room Luana Waikiki is a low-key condo hotel located a few minutes' walk from the center of Waikiki. The property borders Fort DeRussy Beach Park, which has one of the finest white sand beaches on the south side of Oahu. Because it’s not right in the city center, the Luana Waikiki offers the best of both worlds: peace and accessibility. Nightlife fans who want easy access to dancing and vacationers who want to relax on the sand will both be happy.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Scene

Fun tropical decor with outdoor pool

Luana Waikiki offers a relaxed environment with comfortable, low-key places to gather and cool tropical touches scattered throughout the grounds and common areas. Guests can use community gas grills on the sun deck or set themselves up in a sweet white cabana by the pool. The tropical decor is fun, not luxe, and has a tongue-in-cheek flair evident in the retro lamps found around the premises. Hula girls, surfer dudes, and pineapples predominate. There's a lobby mezzanine with a big flat-screen TV where guests can congregate.

 Location

Near Fort DeRussy Beach Park and five minutes from downtown Waikiki

Luana Waikiki is five minutes by foot from downtown Waikiki, which means it’s far enough from the noise and tourist crush to be relaxing, but close enough to dip into the nightlife, go to a fine restaurant, or indulge in shopaholic tendencies. The hotel is a few minutes stroll as well from Fort DeRussy Beach Park, which has a phenomenal white-sand beach, running paths, the U.S. Army Museum of Hawaii, and lots more. For business travelers, the convention center is a 10-minute walk away, and there are a variety of eateries, shops, and bars nearby for quick jaunts

 Rooms

Private lanais and modern amenities with kitchens or kitchenettes

Except for the City View Rooms, the guestrooms at the Luana Waikiki are condo apartments with either kitchenettes or full kitchens. With travertine marble floors, the spaces have an array of modern amenities and comforts like dishwashers, flat-screen TVs, and iPod docks. Each unit also has a private lanai/balcony with deck furniture. Decor is warm and tropical, with funky tabletop hula girl and surfer guy lamps, pineapples popping up on carved headboards and dishes, and palm trees on the curtains and bedspreads. There’s plenty of closet space, and bathrooms, though small, are sufficient. With windows open, street noise can be intrusive at times.

 Features

Good-sized gym with on-site salon and spa; free Wi-Fi as well

The Luana Waikiki has a spacious, sunny fitness center with cardio and weight equipment. The pool area has table setups and cabanas as well as lounge chairs with cushions for awesome sun worshipping. The Ville de Coco is a spa and beauty salon that offers mani/pedis, massage, and other treatments. There’s free Wi-Fi throughout the complex, but the computers in the business center charge for web access. There’s also a guest laundry room.

 Bottom Line

Part of the Aqua Resorts chain, the 217-room Luana Waikiki is a low-key condo hotel located a few minutes' walk from the center of Waikiki. The property borders Fort DeRussy Beach Park, which has one of the finest white sand beaches on the south side of Oahu.
