The New Otani Kaimana Beach Hotel
Ranked #30 of 84 Hotels in Honolulu
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 December 2007

We stayed here on the way home to Australia after 3 weeks in the US so wanted to stay somwhere quiet where we could relax before flying home. One of the older hotels but surrounded by beach on one side and the park on the other, only a short 10 minute walk to waikiki with all the ABC shops and restaurants.
We had a suite overlooking the park and the beach to Waikiki with beautiful views, very glad we stayed there and not in Waikiki as it is full on tourists with people everywhere.
This hotel also has it's own private beach so is not crowded.

Nice room #312 - we were on 3rd floor, with a view of the Waikiki high rises and beach only slightly obscured by palm trees.

Didn't try the restaurants - there's a Japanese and a Hawaiian - appeared a little expensive.

OK value - I think we were paying about $230 / night which I thought was good for Waikiki, but when we needed an extra night on Thanksgiving night, they coudn't accommodate, but found us a top floor, ocean view room in the Sheraton Princess Kaiulani right on Waikiki for $185 - odd.

Location is nice - the beach is wide there (better than the main drag I'd say), and attracts fewer visitors. Its a 10 minute walk to the middle of Waikiki.

This is a very good bargain for hotels in Honolulu. It is right on the beach -- amazing view from ocean front rooms! It is very convenient to Waikiki, but not right in the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. The hotel is located in the midst of an attractive city park right next to Diamond Head, and is about a 10 minute walk from Waikiki proper.

My husband and I spent two nights here at the end of September 2007 and were extremely pleased with our choice. If we ever return to Honolulu, I know this is where we will stay. We had an ocean front junior suite, and while it was not large it was very comfortable. It had a nice balcony, plenty of closet space, and a separate shower and tub. It was nice to have separate living and bedroom areas (they are separated by sliding doors).

The patio restaurant is right on the beach and the setting is gorgeous -- the food is OK. For a longer stay it would get old to have most meals there, but there are many other choices nearby.

I think it would be hard to beat the location and amenities for the price -- we paid less than $300 for our room (you get a discount by booking directly through the hotel's site).

This hotel is highly recommended for value and service and convenience. My husband sometimes uses a wheelchair and the hotel supplied this free of charge for one week! Being right on the beach, we ate regularly at the restaurant there and the food was superb. Our view from our room over the sea and Honolulu was magnificent and breath taking. All staff were very helpful and our clothes washing could be done very cheaply as they have a laundry. Our room was very comfortable. This hotel was such good value.

My wife and I were looking to do an inexpensive week in Hawaii so that we can come back more often. The New Otani is probably the least expensive hotel that is directly on the beach -which means that you can walk out of the lobby onto sand -and it has great snorkeling. My wife and I were surprised to find a sea turtle in such a busy area as Waikiki. The hotel location was a short walk from the maddening crowds and though the surrounding parks had some homeless wandering around (like in Santa Monica, CA) we didn’t feel unsafe or uncomfortable. By the way, if you are a runner like me I could not think of a better place to stay to maintain you daily runs. Instead of playing the 'ocean view games’ we just decided to go for the least expensive room available. Internet rate of $135/night. Our room actually had a partial view of the ocean and Diamond Head. Perhaps it was a slow week and we got upgraded. The room was very small, a bit dated, but clean. My only gripe is that there is no door to the bathroom –only a sliding type louvered door. You better be very familiar with your traveling partner or you soon will be. The hotel is not fancy by any means but it was not a disappointment. It is just a reasonable clean place. We didn’t try any of the restaurants but did go to the fantastic Diamond Head grill at the W Hotel just 100 feet away. If you plan on spending your time outside of your room and need a good, clean, and inexpensive home base then I think the New Otani is a good choice.

When confirming our reservation I mentioned that we would be on our honeymoon. After checking in, we were informed that we've been upgraded! We received a beautiful suite on the top floor, ocean front. What a start! A nice living area, HUGE bathroom, large and comfortable bed, panoramic view! Of course we spent a little more money in the restaurant. The food and service, from the valet to the busboy was very pleasant. We only stayed 3 nights, wish it were more. The beach was semi-private, yet you felt like you were alone. The Mai-Tais were the best on our entire trip, sunset included! Whenever we go back to Hawaii, will definitly stay here. You're away from the noise of Waikiki, very relaxing. Moral of the story....Perfect!

Great small little hotel just east of Waikiki. (5 minute walk) The location and the Hau Tree restaurant are wonderful. The rooms are small, but who spends time in their room in Hawaii. If you do not like to walk or need a pool this hotel is not for you. Breakfast at the Hau Tree is a must. The best seat in town.

I would recommend this hotel to older couples without children who do not need all the glits and glamore of a large resort.

We had a moderate room with a great view of Diamond Head and a narrow stretch of the beach.

I will stay here again with my wife, but not with my children.
Request a room on a high floor for a bette view and breeze.
