From the heart of Waikiki Beach, the Moana Surfrider, A Westin Resort & Spa introduced the world to Hawaiian hospitality in 1901. Often referred to as the "First Lady of Waikiki," this oceanfront Oahu hotel is a legendary landmark.

This historical structure has been renovated to include a revitalized lobby featuring hardwood floors, new furniture, and updated lighting fixtures. As you might expect of Waikiki beachfront resorts, all guest accommodations at the Moana Surfrider are elegant, undeniably Hawaiian, and exceedingly comfortable. Modern comforts complement traditional decor, further enhanced by luxurious details and tasteful amenities. Many rooms offer ocean views, and all of the Moana's guestrooms feature Westin's signature Heavenly Bed®, as well as flat-screen televisions.

The state-of-the-art Moana Lani Spa features 14 treatment rooms, including two couple's massage rooms and a 1,400-square-foot WestinWORKOUT® fitness facility. This is a tranquil place where Hawaiian healing traditions and innovative spa rituals inspire the spirit and become one. The spa rests on Apuakehau, a natural healing spring that brings water from Manoa Valley to our beautiful oceanfront location.

In the evening, guests can gather together to socialize during Westin's new slant on happy hour - "Unwind: A Westin Evening Ritual." The spacious courtyard in the updated beachfront Banyan Court invites guests to relax under the shade of the hotel's historic banyan tree, while the Moana Surfrider's signature Banyan Veranda restaurant presents a stylish new concept and exciting menu.

From sublime fine-dining menus to sumptuous afternoon tea, the Moana Surfrider, A Westin Resort & Spa promises your every meal will be as memorable as the Victorian elegance that surrounds you.

Not geared toward Families w small children
JOSEPH N.
Dec 16 2015
I found this hotel to be excellent in most areas but due gave it lower rating for trying to market itself as family friendly. They try with their "children under 5 eat free". but the truth is, it is NOT child friendly. The pool rules are ridiculous. My daughter and the other children she met at the hotel between the ages of 5 - 11 continually kept harassed by an older woman working at the towel service for everything they did. She would come out from her counter and tell them, you need to keep it down, you are being too loud, no toys in the pool, no jumping into the pool, etc. it was AWFUL. at one point I asked her, if they were allowed to get by the pool. THe pool is for swimming only!!. WHAT???? Some of the older guests seemed annoyed with the children too. WEll, guess what??? if children bother you stay at an adult only hotel. The activities for children is almost non-existent. Again, let me disclose - if it was only my husband and I, the hotel would have been the perfect choice. however, I just did not like that I was misled to believe this place was child friendly. We stayed at the towers and it was perfect. I was afraid at first that we would feel secluded from the main hotel building but that wasn't the case. it was actually better because the main hotel building is extremely busy with guests and non-guests walking around everywhere. The beach was So-So... it is very small and it is a public beach. ALso, if you think for a minute that you can enjoy an amazing mai tai on the beach - FORGET ABOUT IT-- not going to happen. Supposedly, a State law whereby you are not allowed to consume alcoholic beverages on the beach. it was insane. We went to our 2 children, ages 25 and 5. Our adult son, was not happy with not being able to even enjoy a drink/beer on the beach and having to pay for a beach chair and the little one couldn't even play games in the pool. Overall, great hotel for an adult only hotel. the location is perfect if you are looking for the hustle and bustle of Waikiki beach. do not expect a relaxing quiet sipping drink on the beach vacation.

Moana Surfrider: Big hotel, Small pool, Small beach
GABRIELE B.
Jul 15 2011
The Moana Surfrider is the sophisticated lady of a hotel in the middle of Waikiki. However, if you come to Waikiki to lounge by the pool or lay on the beach, this is not the place to stay! Too many guests, too little space, too few chairs! Unless you are in line before the pool area opens, you will not be able to find a good spot and after 8:30 am no spot at all unless someone vacates their space! The pool and beach are a huge let down!

The front of the Moana is on Kalakaua Ave with all the restaurants and shopping. The rear of the hotel is on Waikiki Beach. So convenient. We stayed in the Tower with a partial ocean view. The lanai faced the Outrigger lanais which was not very private. But we had a fantastic view of the sunset from our lanai which made up for it. We got balloons from Housekeeping and wine and chocolates from the hotel for our anniversary. Be sure to take the hotel history tour. Great staff.

Holiday in Waikiki
janchapple, Denarau Island, Fiji
Sun Nov 19 22:28:20 EST 2017
On holidays in Waikiki from Melbourne, Australia and staying at the Moana Surfrider on the 6th floor in a Historic Banyan Room with a queen bed. Things we are enjoying - Buffet Breakfast on the verandah with beautiful views of the magnificent Banyan Tree and Waikiki Beach and sitting in the rocking chairs reading or watching the world go by. Things we are not enjoying - We are really disappointed in our room which has such a small bathroom and vanity that we could barely fit anything on the vanity. To be honest the room is so small we have barely unpacked. This is our second trip to Waikiki and the Moana Surfrider and last time we loved our room which had ocean views and felt very special staying here however, this time our views are of the main street which we is so noisy of an evening with loud music, cars revving etc... Sadly, we are not feeling special staying where we are staying this time as apart from our room being very small and unimpressive which we could tolerate we are not feeling very special staying on the 6th Floor as the last 2 evenings there have been private functions on this floor and we feel as though we shouldn’t even be there! When we come out of the lift to go back to our room we step into into the middle of the function with everyone dressed in their finery and looking at us like “what are you do here” and then we don’t even have a clear path to our room having to go around the “private function” signs and tall plants blocking the middle of the corridors which make you feel like you are trespassing even though this is the only way back to your room! My Recommendations - I would still recommend staying at the Moana Surfrider Resort just for the experience of staying in one of the oldest hotels in Waikiki but only stay in a King Room, request an ocean or partial ocean views & do not stay on the 6th Floor. Jan & Steve Chapple

Perfect Waikiki location. Noisy Housekeeping staff.
suspend6, Geelong, Australia
Sun Nov 19 15:40:54 EST 2017
This hotel's location is hard to beat. We have stayed at this venue on three occasions now. The staff are very polite, very efficient and the facilities are first class. The one issue that spoilt our most recent stay was the noise made by housekeeping staff. Every morning of our stay we were woken by the housekeeping staff preparing to start their work. They talked loudly to each other, thumped and banged as they loaded up their trolleys, and despite their friendliness, were a real nuisance. I reported this to the front desk a couple of days into our stay, but the problem persisted for the duration of our holiday. I do not know the full extent of the extra taxes and fees levied by Hawaiian hotels, but it seems excessive. Their "resort fee" of $33 USD per room per day on top of other statutory taxes seems a bit rich. Yes, you get free phone calls, free bottled water and a few other minor concessions, but it sure adds to your room cost. I believe it is at the discretion of each hotel as to whether the charge is applied or not. Despite my criticisms, this is a grand hotel in the heart of Waikiki and if within your budget is well worth a stay.

What a great place to stay in Waikiki
wdlander, Post Falls, Idaho
Sun Nov 19 09:56:58 EST 2017
This was our first visit to to the Moana Surf Rider in Waikiki. what a great place it was, and what a great stay it was. From arriving, until our departure we had a staff dedicated to making our stay a good one. we had a minor problem with one Valet, but Jan, and Frank's graciousness more than made up for it. Our car was always there at exactly the time when we asked for it. This is some mean feat for a place that only has Valet parking, and usually has up to six weddings a day. The place is full of weddings all day long. some might find this a distraction, but we loved seeing all the young couple and their finery as the posed for the post wedding photos. ( We actually took some of the poses in our beach out fits and got laughs from both the bride, groom and photographers) The restaurants are first class, the beach access perfect, and the water there is why folks come to Hawaii. Staying right on the beach you can lock up everything valuable in your rooms' safe and head to the beach worry free( save for the occasional rogue wave.) Our ten days was exactly the quality of stay we wanted. It's not a cheap stay, but go ahead and splurge. it's worth it.

Outstanding resort on the sands of Waikiki

The Moana Surfrider is an outstanding resort in Waikiki. Easy access to shopping and dining and of course the beach. A good surf break is just to the left of the hotel facing the beach, you can rent boards and learn how to surf in the perfect waves. The staff is very friendly day and night - I was able to upgrade my room to an ocean view and it is a spectacular view. The room is great and quiet and the maid service was perfect. If you are looking for a hotel/resort in Waikiki this is the best I’ve stayed in!
