Hotels in Oahu

Hawaii as a whole is home to a myriad of all-inclusive resorts, and many of the best hotels on Oahu offer guests their hallmark amenities just steps from its sandy beaches.

Oahu hotels like Halekulani are set along the island's famed Waikiki Beach, a tourist destination that's buzzing day and night. The century-old hotel boasts a 5-acre property dotted with upscale features -- open-air dining at Orchids Restaurant and a suite designed by Vera Wang primed for wedding days.

Also located on Waikiki, the bright-pink Royal Hawaiian resort occupies a particularly wide stretch of sand. And, the historic digs received a $60-million renovation that includes 21st-century updates, a new pool and private beach cabanas.

Other hotels on Oahu with first-class reputations include the Aqua Lotus Honolulu, set on the slopes of Diamond Head in Kapiolani Park. The recently constructed hotel features Asian-inspired designs and 50 guest rooms with private verandas. Visitors also have easy access to a path leading to Sans Souci Beach.

Hotels on Oahu with a foothold in local culture include the Turtle Bay Resort, the only one of its kind on the island's North Shore. Guests of the 880-acre property can sign up for surfing lessons and ride horses on site. The resort also features two 18-hole golf courses.
