This intimate boutique hotel is a tranquil oasis in the heart of Waikiki. With a prime location, you'll step outside to find the best shopping and dining at the popular Waikiki Beach Walk and Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center. Or just relax at the hotel's sundeck and cool off in the outdoor shower or dipping pool. Here, oasis is an experience and not just a name.

First, I booked this hotel with credit card points. I arrived at about 9:20 PM Hawaii Time (12:30 AM my time) and was tired. I paid in advance with points and when I arrived they charged me an additional $25+ fee per night which they claimed was for amenities (really to pay for breakfast); something they didn't tell me when I called ahead. Sauna and lobby bathrooms closed. I felt that they should have been more upfront about this fee as I was never told on the booking site or when I called the hotel in advance. It was either pay the additional fee or go somewhere else. They have ~12 spaces for parking which they charge $40+/night (you leave, you loose). This caused me to have to spend 40 min. per night trying to find streetside parking. Anyone going to stay at this hotel be prepared to find parking along Ala Wai Blvd. They failed to partner with neighboring hotels to provide better accommodations for parking. There is another small lot behind the hotel, but it looks shady, low traffic, and is unattended; this small lot has about 14 stalls. Even if you wanted to stay in either the hotel lot or the lot behind the hotel, they were full most of the time due to limited parking availability. They also did not disclose in advance about this parking problem on their website. The breakfast is outside under an awning; birds come and peck at the breakfast food and are present on the tables. I didn't mind the birds in the eating areas, but did mind the birds getting on the food serving table. While they did have free breakfast, it had muffins, oranges and pineapple, coffee, cereal, milk, and toast--better than a donut and Tang, but not a great breakfast as there was nothing hot (excluding coffee and toast), and definitely not worth an extra $25+/night. The cereal tasted stale and the oranges were hybrids between grapefruits/oranges and tasted bitter and bland. The rooms are older and worn out and reflective of 1960's/1970's construction. The carpet is old and dated, the bathroom was kind of yellowish tub and walls. The rooms were small. I stayed on the 5th floor. It appears from reading the comments that the rooms with kitchenettes are newer and better serviced. I am mostly mad about the parking and $25+/night fee not disclosed in advance. I called in advance and was not told about this. I tried to resolve this with the manager after the trip, but did not receive a call back. Highly recommend that you get a COVID test before arriving in Hawaii (we did) AND upload it to the Hawaii state site to show a negative test. The hotel will check you upon arrival. If you don't upload the test, you MUST quarantine. This is not the hotel's fault, but it does make extra steps. The good thing that I liked is that they took points and commend them for this.…
We had an awesome experience and made the best of a family emergency. We were able to get reservations on short notice when our mother was admitted to the hospital in Honolulu. We had everything from Tsunami Watch, hotel evac, flood warnings and COVID quarantine. Every evening when we returned to the hotel from a long arduous day we were greeted like family or OHANA. The staff was fantastic, and friendly. From Olivia and Rachel at the front desk, to our Valets Michael and Marcus. Our car was always ready for us in the morning, after a nice continental breakfast. Especially loved the fresh pineapple every morning. The room with kitchenette was perfect and we had a nice view of the ocean. Especially loved the Japanese toilet. We will stay again when we come back this summer and look forward to enjoying the city and walking to the beach which is a nice walk. Mahalo!…
Free breakfast + coffee every morning, and excellent service. Olivia gives excellent customer service and it's very helpful when it comes to booking multiple rooms. She's also very accommodating with any special requests. Mike at valet was great and always saved us a spot in the garage, and would have the car available nearly instantly every time we needed it. A great location and place to stay, great bang for your buck in Oahu! The hotel is also right in the middle of everything, but one block removed so it's not noisy at all.
I recently visited aqua oasis hotel for 10 days and it was the most enjoyable experience ever. Olivia at the front desk was so polite and helpful in every way. I would definitely come back to visit. Thank you
