The Aqua Waikiki Wave Hotel in Honolulu occupies the site of the former Aqua Coral Reef Hotel, and it's quite a privileged location. You'll be right in the heart of Waikiki when you stay at the Aqua Waikiki Wave, and while the hotel is not on the beach, the sand is only a ten-minute walk away. An array of tempting restaurants and shops are also within walking distance, and once the sun sets, there is plenty of fun nightlife in the immediate area. In addition to a great location, the contemporary Aqua Waikiki Wave Hotel also offers competitive rates, and its guest rooms are hard to find fault with. An all-around good value, this hotel deserves consideration when you're looking for your ideal accommodations in the Aloha State's capital city.
Staying in the neighborhood of Waikiki, or at least close to it, is what many Honolulu visitors look to do, and for good reason. Not only does Waikiki boast Waikiki Beach, but also proximity to downtown Honolulu and the famed Diamond Head Crater. Hiking to the top of Diamond Head Crater for a view of the city below is a joy that should be included on any Honolulu vacation itinerary. Because the Aqua Waikiki Wave Hotel features an activities desk, you can easily get help planning area tours and arranging visits to the top Oahu attractions. Free wireless internet access is offered throughout the hotel if you want to plan tours online or just want to stay in touch with friends back home via e-mail. You'll also get a free daily newspaper during your stay, and you might look through it while you enjoy your complimentary continental breakfast.
The Aqua Waikiki Wave is a relatively complete boutique hotel, so keeping entertained during your stay is easy.

Exploring the on-site art gallery and enjoying a meal at one of the hotel's two restaurants are also options. For those without a personal laptop, the guest internet kiosk provides computers you can use, and business services are available for an added fee if you have work to take care of during your trip. An outdoor pool and a hot tub round out the general facilities at the hotel, and when the nearby beaches are calling you, snorkeling, surfing, and people-watching are just some of the beach-related activities that you can engage in.
The guest rooms at the Aqua Waikiki Wave offer quite a few amenities of their own, and you can hardly argue with the rates when you consider what you get in return. For starters, the private bathrooms in each unit boast new plumbing, fresh tiles, and attractive fixtures.
