The Ala Moana Hotel is in a great central location to see and do so much. The Ala Moana Shopping Center has countless stores to satisfy the shopper in you, as well as restaurants for a midday feast. For the savvy shopper, visit the Aloha Flea Market and find some steals and deals. The Wet n Wild Water Park is great for the whole family and although it’s about 25 miles from the hotel, it’s worth the drive for a day of fun. Kids will also marvel at the Atlantis Submarines within walking distance of the hotel. For the ultimate convenience, sign up for Circle Island Tours that will pick you up and drop you off at the hotel. Ask the friendly receptionist to make you a reservation at one of the nearby, recommended restaurants for dinner before heading out, and your day will be perfect.
Surrounded by the beauty of the island, the Ala Moana welcomes guests with beauty of its own. The stunning glass façade reflects the bright atmosphere created by the exuberant staff. Check-in is a breeze and there is always a staff member to help with any needs. Relaxation is the theme of the whole island, and the hotel continues that with their amenities. Find your favorite reading spot on the sundeck next to the pool. After a lap in the pool, peruse the on-site gift shop for some souvenirs or paraphernalia to remember your trip. At the end of a day of enjoying all the local food, hit the fitness room for a workout, a sit in the sauna or a little bit of yoga. If business is what brought you to the island, the hotel has a good amount of space for any functions that you need to plan. There are catering services as well as technological equipment for any presentations.
