MOANA SURFRIDER,
A WESTIN RESORT & SPA
Kalakaua Avenue, Waikiki, Oahu, Hawaii

Our thoughts on Moana Surfrider, A Westin Resort & Spa
You simply cannot find a better location on Waikiki Beach, after all, this was the original major hotel, (opened in 1901), on the famous beach, so they had the pick of all the locations!  The Moana Hotel was a charming, gracious hotel built in the days when all guests arrived in Hawaii by ship.  It retains all the glamour and charm of this bygone era with its soaring columns and gorgeous old-world comfort, while also having moved with the times with regard to facilities and services.  The Moana Hotel was built around a huge beach-side Banyan Tree which still exists and today’s guests still enjoy the shade and ambience of the hotel’s wide verandas overlooking the banyan tree and the afternoon teas and the pleasant nightly entertainment under and around this famous old tree. Of course, there are now many more dining options in the hotel.  In addition guests have access to Starwood’s “Stay at One, Dine at All” program offer where guests at Moana Surfrider can enjoy dining, shows, oceanfront entertainment options, fitness center, and spa at Sheraton Waikiki, Sheraton Princess Kaiulani and The Royal Hawaiian and simply sign the charges back to their room.

At Moana Surfrider, A Westin Resort & Spa, enjoy the Heavenly Spa (which is one of only 20 in the entire world), a 24-hour fitness centre and a great deal more, but there’s nothing quite as pleasant as sitting on one of the rocking chairs on the front porch of the hotel and rocking gently while watching the passing action on Kalakaua Avenue. Adding to the charm, the lawn on the beach side of the Diamond Wing and the historic hotel lobby are favourite locations for weddings and it’s not uncommon to see bridal parties coming and going as you check in - especially during the afternoons and evenings.

It’s also hard to beat the experience of taking “High Tea” on the oceanfront veranda or sipping a tropical cocktail under the Moana Surfrider’s ancient banyan tree as the sun sets over Waikiki Beach. 

In more recent times there was a modern wing added to the Moana Hotel on its eastern, Diamond Head side (now The Diamond Wing) and later, (when the hotel had been renamed The Sheraton Moana Hotel), the former Surfrider Hotel on its western side were joined together, the "Moana Surfrider, A Westin Resort & Spa" was born.  The former Surfrider, which was extensively renovated and up-graded in mid-2013, is now known as “The Tower” block at Moana Surfrider. All these changes and the integration of the Surfrider Hotel have only served to compliment the original hotel and we rate the resultant resort facilities and guest experience very highly indeed. When staying at The Moana Surfrider, A Westin Resort & Spa, today’s guests can still experience a great deal of the historic “Old Hawaii” feeling as well as enjoying the completely up-to-date facilities.

What Moana Surfrider, A Westin Resort & Spa Say About Themselves
“Welcome to the Moana Surfrider, A Westin Resort & Spa.

The "First Lady of Waikiki" has undergone a rebirth. The Sheraton Moana Surfrider has officially been re-branded as the Moana Surfrider, A Westin Resort & Spa. The resort underwent a total transformation and is the first Westin property on the island of Oahu. Since June 1, 2007, guests have re-entered this historical structure and been welcomed by a revitalized lobby featuring hardwood floors, new furniture and lighting fixtures. All of the Moana's guestrooms feature Westin's signature Heavenly Bed® as well as new flat-screen televisions. 

Waikiki's first and only beachfront spa opened in the Moana in October 2008. The new state-of-the-art spa features 14 treatment rooms, including two couple's massage rooms and a 1,400 square foot Westin WORKOUT fitness facility. The Spa features a gorgeous menu of treatments and services designed to pamper and invigorate the weariest of travellers. In the evening, guests can gather and unwind during Westin's new slant on happy hour - "Unwind: A Westin Evening Ritual."  The spacious courtyard, new outdoor tables, chairs and umbrellas in the updated beachfront Banyan Court will invite guests to relax under the shade of the hotel's historic banyan tree, while the Moana's signature Banyan Veranda restaurant is poised to launch a stylish, new concept and exciting menu.

This historic oceanfront resort features 793 rooms, including 43 suites in three towers. True to Westin standards, all rooms are completely smoke-free. The original structure of the hotel, its Banyan Wing, is listed on The National Register of Historic Places. All guest accommodations are elegant, undeniably Hawaiian, and exceptionally comfortable. Modern comforts compliment traditional décor, further enhanced by luxurious details and tasteful amenities."
