The Lotus at Diamond Head

2885 Kalakaua Ave.
Honolulu, HI, 96815, United States
TEL: (808) 922-1700

The Aqua Lotus at Diamond Head, formerly the W Waikiki, is a 50-room boutique hotel at the foot of Diamond Head and about a half-mile from the beach in Oahu’s Kapiolani Park. The hotel still retains much of the look of the W, with Polynesian accents, rows of candles, and velvet couches in the lobby. Spacious guest rooms have teak accents, Asian-inspired botanical prints, and each includes its own private lanai. The Diamond Head Grill, open for dinner, serves Asian, Euro-American, and Polynesian cuisines prepared with seasonal ingredients.

Room to Book:

Request a Corner Ocean Room for views of the water and Diamond Head through two sliding-glass doors.

Insider Tip:

The hotel's restaurant doesn't do room service, but you can order from the company Room Service in Paradise, which delivers lunch and dinner from more than 50 area restaurants.
