Conveniently situated right in the heart of Honolulu and just 20 minutes away from Honolulu International Airport, Pagoda Hotel’s central location provides guests with easy access to the Hawaii Convention Center, Ala Moana Shopping Center, a wide variety of restaurants, popular beaches, attractions and, of course, the vibrancy of Waikiki. Some notable attractions and activities include:
A trip to Waikiki would truly be wasted if you didn’t hike to the punchbowl crater of Diamond Head, a monument as famous as the island it calls home. Considered an iconic symbol of the Hawaiian Islands, it is not only a must-see, but a unique hiking experience. Although not considered to be a difficult hike, it is by no means a casual one, with steep stairs leading to the summit that afford spectacular panoramic views of Waikiki and Oahu’s southern coastline.
After hiking and surfing under the sun, you’ll enjoy shopper’s paradise at Ala Moana Shopping Center, the largest open-air shopping center in the world. Shops specialize in everything from beachwear to high fashion, and visitors will find a variety of international cuisines to sample at both casual eateries and fine dining restaurants. With tropical landscaping and koi ponds, you’ll find yourself in an indoor Hawaiian oasis away from the sun.
‘Sea’ the aquatic life: For those who want to get up close and personal with colorful marine life, snorkeling in Hanauma Bay is perfect. Situated 10 miles east of Waikiki, Hanauma Bay is one of Oahu’s most popular snorkeling locations because its calm waters are protected by an offshore reef. Sea turtles are also known to nest around this famous curved bay.
Go on a cultural excursion filled with beauty, color, and excitement. No vacation in Hawaii is truly complete until you’ve taken an action-packed journey through the Islands of Tahiti, Samoa, New Zealand and the romantic hula of Hawaii at these wondrous cultural gatherings. At many Luau, you’ll be able to enjoy a delightful all-you-can-eat buffet, an exhilarating Polynesian show, lei making workshops, a royal court procession, and of course, hula!
