2280 Kuhio Avenue, Waikiki, Oahu, Hawaii

OUR Thoughts on Aqua Ohia Waikiki
This 3½ Star hotel has a lot going for it.  For an off-beachfront property, the location is excellent for a Waikiki holiday, every accommodation unit we offer has a very useable kitchenette and the prices are reasonable for the standards and facilities offered.  The hotel has a very limited number of small hotel rooms which do not have the self-catering option but we don't recommend these for a a holiday stay.

Over the past couple of years, there had been a terrific amount of redevelopment in the vicinity of Aqua Ohia.  The old International Marketplace (the Kuhio Avenue entrance is almost opposite Aqua Ohia) has been completely redeveloped and several of the hotels, shops etc at this central position on Kuhio Avenue are in the upgrading process or have been completely upgraded. As well as having ready access to all the shops, cafés, nightspots and the transport hubs along Kuhio Avenue, guests at Aqua Ohia can easily walk to a supermarket only 200 metres along Kuhio, but the highlight of this location is that you are directly across the road and only a little over 200 metres down Dukes Lane, via the colourful Dukes Marketplace to central Kalakaua Avenue.  As you cross Kalakaua Avenue from Dukes Lane, the main entrance to The Royal Hawaiian Centre is right in front of you and Waikiki Beach is easily accessed beyond the beachfront resorts via several beach access ways. 

The hotel hosts a restaurant – The Lava Tube Waikiki (formerly Da Big Kahuna Restaurant) which opens for breakfast, lunch and dinner offering fresh Hawaiian food at affordable prices. Hours of operation are 7:00am until midnight, 7-days a week.

Your Accommodation Options
Our range of rooms at Aqua Ohia Waikiki comprises 4 grades of accommodation – Hotel Rooms, Studios, Junior Suites and 2 One Bedroom Suites, all with a kitchenette.  Compared to some older properties in Waikiki, the kitchenettes in this hotel are well equipped with a good range of cooking equipment and utensils.  There is a full-sized stove with 4 cook-top elements and an oven.  The fridge is the under-counter size with quite a reasonable capacity.  All units have a lanai (balcony) – all with city/mountain views. For those staying more than a couple of days, we recommend you consider taking the Studio option; the extra 10m2 in space is nice to have and the difference in price between a Studio and a Hotel Room is usually only around NZ$20 a night.

Aqua Ohia has a very central location on the corner of Kuhio Avenue and Nohonanani Street only 200 metres from the Food Pantry Supermarket. Cross Kuhio Avenue out front of Aqua Ohia and you are at the entrance to Dukes Lane which runs 200 metres beside the International Marketplace and The Holiday Inn and opens on to Kalakaua Avenue opposite the main entrance to the Royal Hawaiian Centre, right in the middle of the Waikiki beach action. Dukes Lane is the venue of the Dukes Marketplace which, if you don’t mind the pushy stallholders, can yield some pretty good bargains in t-shirts and souvenirs.

Staying at an Aqua Hotel, you get the use of their Shuttle Service (included in the Amenity Fee) which runs a regular shuttle to and from Ala Moana Shopping Centre.
