Hyatt Resorts – Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort, Hawaii

Hyatt Regency Waikiki - FrontAs Hyatt Reward members we have stayed at a few Hyatt locations, however, none of them have been as nice as the Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa. It is located on Kalakaua Avenue in Waikiki and has to be one of the most incredible hotels in the Hyatt Brand.  We had stayed at the Andaz on 5th Avenue in New York which was really nice, but this one blew me away. The Aloha Spirit was evident as soon as I walked into the hotel in December of 2016. As we headed toward the front desk at least 3 employees nodded and said aloha, and one of them offered me a drink of water or pineapple Iced Tea. It was very tasty. It was a very nice welcome.

Hyatt Regency Waikik - AtriumThe other thing I first noticed was the phenomenal three-story, open-air atrium with orchids, palm trees, and waterfalls, all surrounded by shops. I had to stop and take a bunch of pictures and just enjoy the peace and tranquility. It was great to just sit and relax after a long day. Another thing that was really cool was the live Macaws in the atrium as well named Mali, and Kimo They were quite interesting to watch.

Hyatt Regency Waikiki - MacawsAs far as the hotel itself, there are two towers with 1,230 rooms, each with a private lanai and designed to be smart, intuitive, and timeless.  Each room consists of an in-room safe large enough to store a laptop computer, iHome stereo with iPod® docking station, 55” flat-screen TV, multiple USB outlets, Toto Washlet, exclusive bath amenities from Na Ho’ola Spa, generous work areas, and many have stunning views of the ocean or city.

Hyatt Regency Waikiki - RoomSpeaking of views, the Hyatt Regency Waikiki has the most breathtaking views, whether from a room or from one of the cabanas in the pool area. Cabanas are available for full or half-day rental for up to three people per cabana. Half-day times are 7:30 AM to 2:00 PM or 2:30 PM to 9:00 PM for $40.  Full-day times are 7:30 AM to 9:00 PM for $60.  Rentals may be charged to your room and special rates are available for Gold Passport members.

Hyatt Regency Waikiki - PoolWhile you are in the pool area, make sure to take advantage of the large hot tub. It is great after a busy day of walking around Waikiki. 🙂  After relaxing in the hot tub, make sure to enjoy a drink at the SWIM Bar in the pool area. They have happy hour food and drink specials. Monday-Thursday from 4-6 pm.

Hyatt Regency Waikiki - Hot TubI really liked the location of the hotel. It is right across from  Kuhio Beach Park where they hold the Free Kuhio Beach Hula Shows every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday night. Duke Kahanamoku Statue is just a few steps away from the crystal clear water. I don’t see how there could t have been a better location on Waikiki. Another advantage of staying at the Hyatt Regency Waikiki is the free Farmers Market they have on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4-8 pm.  Really amazing to be right there 🙂

Hyatt Regency Waikiki - Atrium2Besides the Farmers Market, there are many stores of various variety located throughout the premises, including two ABC stores. Some of the stores that I found most interesting are In Paradise, the Honolulu Cookie Company, Folli Follie, and the Flip Flop Shop. They were all unique and interesting in their own way.

Hyatt Regency Waikiki - StoreLike I said at the beginning of this post, I really enjoyed the Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort and I would gladly stay here anytime we are in Waikiki. It was absolutely beautiful with some of the most amazing views. Here is a link to their website for reservations and more info. Again, one of the best hotels in the Hyatt brand.
