JW Marriott Ihilani Resort and Spa

4 stars
4.2 / 5 102 reviews
A luxurious Island sanctuary away from the cityJW is a luxury offshoot of the Marriott hotel group, and the Ihilani Resort and Spa reflects the company's emphasis on pared-down style, with its simple wooden furnishings and muted palette. Sitting solo on a private beach cove with unobstructed views of the Pacific Ocean and the Waianae mountain range, the hotel has an impressive arsenal of amenities, ranging from seawater massage and color therapies at the spa to championship golfing. Sip Blue Hawaii's by the side of the pool as the sun sinks, dine on coconut shrimp at Naupaka Terrace, or rise early for some yoga under the shade of the huge tropical greenery in the hotel garden; guests can design their visits exactly as they wish at the JW. Key facts387 guestroomsShuttle bus servicePool4 restaurants: Azul, Naupaka Terrace, Ushio-Tei, Hokule'a BarPoolside barDaily resort fee covers on-site activities, Wi-Fi and local callsSpa and exercise classesGolf course NeighborhoodLocated on Oahu's scenic western shore, the Marriott Ihilani is within the Ko Olina resort, just up the coast from Ko Olina Beach Park. This area is known for its 'wow' factor, even amongst the postcard-worthy beaches of Oahu. Less crowded than Honolulu's famous Waikiki strip, the lagoons here are perfect for activities like paddle boarding, snorkeling, and even whale-watching. The nearest city is Kapolei, a vibrant residential community to the east, while Kalaeloa Airport (JRF) is roughly a 17-minute drive away. Hints and tipsBreakfast options at the Marriott Ihilani Hotel are numerous, but if an alfresco wake-up feast sounds tempting, try the Kalua Pork Eggs Benedict from the Poolside Bar.While out and about, be on the lookout for street snacks like malasadas, a kind of Portuguese donut popular around the island.

Oahu highlights

  • Oahu highlights
  • Pearl Harbor

    Long-time home to the US Pacific Fleet, Pearl Harbor offers historical insights and hands-on activities like the combat flight simulator. Climb on board a WWII battleship, visit the Aviation Museum or simply take in the memorial.

  • Waikiki and Honolulu

    The kitsch may be a little strong here, but it's done so well that you'll soon be swaying to the hula beat along with everyone else. Beyond the girls in grass skirts, Waikiki and Honolulu also boast some of the best-value food on the island. Better still: hike up to Diamond Head for unparalleled views.

  • Waikiki Historic Trail

    If bronzing on the beach isn't your thing, you can still make the most of an Oahu vacation. The Waikiki Historic Trail is a self-guided tour that takes in some amazing, off-the-beaten track spots, including Kuhio Beach and King's Alley Entrance. Finish up at Kapaluhu Pier for "Sunset on the Beach" on Saturday and Sunday evenings. With free movies, live entertainment and food fairs on offer, you can't really go wrong.

  • Hawaii State Art Museum

    Dubbed "the people's museum," the Hawaii State Art Museum is packed with over 360 works of Hawaiian art to explore at no charge on your Oahu vacation. The museum cafe has some decent-priced items on the menu, but if you want to save some extra cash, grab a bite before you go.

  • Hanauma Bay

    Hanauma Bay is snorkeling nirvana and the backdrop on many films and TV series, from Blue Hawaii to Magnum, P.I. Swim with the turtles, laze on the sand and enjoy paradise on your Oahu travels. Just expect plenty of other people to be doing it with you, though – this place is popular.
