An authentic Waikiki experience awaits you at this vibrant new hotel located in the center of the action. With handcrafted design elements, surf-culture throwback & modern touches, you'll feel the energy of Waikiki at the Surfjack Hotel & Swim Club. The Surfjack is home to stylish apparel shop, Olive & Oliver, and Mahina & Suns, renowned chef Ed Kenney's newest eatery. Guests also gather at the Swim Club - our outdoor pool and sun deck area where we share cultural programs and unique events as you sip on a cocktail (or two) and maybe jump into the pool because the moment was oh, so right. The Surfjack Hotel & Swim Club offers renovated bungalow style guest rooms, in addition to spacious one, two, and three-bedroom suites. Each charming guest room includes air-conditioning, a refrigerator, The Indigenous Soap Company® Hand Soap and a private balcony. The feel of open space and the handcrafted style in decor creates a sense of curiosity and serves to inspire adventure. The Surfjack is situated in the heart of Waikiki and offers easy access to prime shopping such as world famous International Market Place, dining and nightlife, and is located just three easy blocks to Waikiki beach. From morning surf sessions to sunset catamaran cruising - it really is an endless summer. For the moments in-between sand & sun, take a short drive to the art and culture communities of Kaka'ako, Downtown Honolulu and Chinatown for a true urban-Honolulu experience. Join us and immerse yourself in the ebb and flow of the Surfjack, a swell little spot in Waikiki.

We wanted to love this place. Its location is amazing, its design gorgeous. It gets a lot of the little details (free sunscreen!) right. But unfortunately, it gets a lot of the big things wrong. Our room wasn't all that clean when we checked in (hair in the corners that

My husband and I stayed here for what was supposed to be 10 days before we moved off island for the military. Due to unforseen circumstances our 10 day stay turned into 29 days. The entire Surfjack staff took such great care of us during an extremely stressful time! 1. The

First off, we stayed 2 nights at the Surfjack. I have to admit I was expecting more of an Ace Hotel style vibe (but obvi smaller & island style) ... just because of its mid century swank & instagramable cuteness! What we got was, I think, a pretty good value for a place in

Our entire family, including two usually brooding teenagers, had an unexpected "best trip ever" to Oahu last week. This was in large part to this super cool hotel, it's creative, independent vibe and the sweetheart staff. Rooms were large, clean and stylish. We got the one

Hi there! Our family of 4 had a room (bungalow) with the 2 beds, however I don’t remember there being any queen style- only 2 doubles in the room. The beds were very comfy and not tiny either. So hopefully they should meet your needs. Our 2 teenage daughters shared one of the double beds quite comfortably. If you want to ensure you get one of those rooms just book it as such. There’s usually a field in the booking section where you can state that you really need that style room. We did that and it worked. You can always email the Surfjack direct too as the staff are very helpful. Have fun! Helen . 😊

Hi there, we were not on the top floor (maybe the 7th floor, can’t remember) and we got nice afternoon sun. The building is L shaped though so you need to be on the side facing south towards Waikiki beach.

Are the coffees included with the resort fees actual barista made coffees, or just instant?
Pretty sure they are just instant- it’s a coffee pot not a powder, and not the greatest. Very strong and bitter. We even tried almond milk, creamer, sugar, and whole milk, nothing helped. They have a barista on staff but it’s more expensive... $5-8 a cup.

Do the 2 bedroom suites have 1 bathroom or 2 please?
We had a 1 bedroom so I did not see the two bedrooms. Perhaps the GM Lynette can answer this question?

"I think pool view has larger patios"
"Highly recommend the Penthouse!"
"Back rooms not overlooking pool would be more quiet as there is live entertainment often"
"Ask for the pool side view so you get the sunny afternoon balcony experience"
"no elevators to penthouse floor (4 or 5 penthouses avail on 10th floor)."
