When only the largest resort in Waikiki will do, the Hilton Hawaiian Village is the place to stay. This sprawling complex, which spreads out over twenty privileged acres, is like a city within a city. As such, guests don't necessarily need a rental car, unless they are planning on visiting other great Oahu attractions, such as Kailua and the North Shore. At the Hilton Beach Resort in Waikiki, you can peruse the goods at more than 100 shops, stroll out to Waikiki Beach to bask in the sun, or dine at one of sixteen restaurants. In the amenity-laden guest rooms, relaxing after a full day of fun is easy. The rooms here range from deluxe to more deluxe, and premium bedding is just one of the standard in-room amenities, so you're all but guaranteed a good night's sleep.
The 2,860 guest units at the Hilton Hawaiian Village Beach Resort are housed in five different towers, and each of these towers offers facilities such as shops and restaurants to make it more convenient. The Alii Tower at the Hilton Hawaiian Village houses the most exclusive accommodations, and its guests will also enjoy access to their own pool, fitness center, terrace, and hot tub. The guest rooms that offer views of the ocean and of Diamond Head Crater in the near distance are arguably the most desirable. Both the Alii Tower and the Rainbow Tower feature rooms that offer these kinds of views, and they understandably go for a higher price. You can hardly go wrong regardless of which tower and guest room you choose at the Hilton Hawaiian Village Beach Resort, however, as standard amenities include the premium bedding, a flat-screen TV with cable, a refrigerator, a private balcony, individually controlled air-conditioning, and a clock radio that you can plug your MP3 player into if you have one. A crib can be requested at no extra charge, and both high-speed internet and a safe are available for an added fee.
When you're not relaxing in your comfortable and spacious guest room at the large Hilton beach resort in Waikiki, pampering yourself or enjoying a workout at the inviting Mandara Spa & Fitness Center is a good way to pass the time. Spending time on Waikiki Beach is sure to enter the picture at some point during your stay at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, but should this famed stretch of sand get too crowded for your tastes, the resort boasts six outdoor pools that are ideal places to sunbathe or splash around. One of the pools here features the longest waterslide in Waikiki, and if you are looking for a quiet strip of sand to relax on, the Duke Kahanamoku Lagoon, which can be spotted from atop the slide, features its own small beach. While relaxing at the 10,000-square-foot Super Pool, you'll enjoy fantastic views of Waikiki Beach.
In addition to sixteen different restaurants, the Hilton beach resort in Waikiki also has four bars, so finding the right spot to grab drinks and socialize is easy. The Hau Tree Bar is an excellent place to relax with a drink while you watch the sunset. At the Tapa Bar, live entertainment is offered between the hours of 8 and 11 p.m., so you can enjoy some nightlife without leaving the resort grounds. Other facilities offered by this sprawling Hilton beach resort in Waikiki include a car rental desk, an activities desk, a business center, and a salon. Babysitting services are available, and the impressive children's program can help keep the younger ones in your family occupied during your stay.
Everyone in your group will find plenty of things to do during a stay at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, and when you're not taking advantage of all the on-site amenities and facilities, the many great Honolulu attractions, such as the Bishop Museum and the Honolulu Zoo, will be there to help you build up your itinerary. Perhaps you'll head over to the Ala Moana Center for some shopping, or maybe a visit to one of the Honolulu botanical gardens will suit you. Between the Hilton Hawaiian Village Beach Resort grounds and the surrounding city of Honolulu, running out of activities during your Oahu vacation will be all but impossible. Factor in the rest of Oahu and all that it has to offer, and you could conceivably spend weeks here and not run out of fresh things to do.
