“Stay Om”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

For a Hawaiian Zen experience, the Lotus Honolulu is a jewel in the Diamond Head crown. Here’s the perfect day: Enjoy a Waikiki sunrise with a hot cup of coffee from the second floor coffee service or from the Verismo coffee system in your room, then schedule a custom workout with a private fitness concierge or enjoy an exclusive-to-hotel-guests outdoor yoga class at 7:30 a.m. in nearby Kapiolani Park, grab one of the hotel's complimentary beach cruisers or mountain bikes and enjoy a breakfast of taro pancakes at the nearby Bogart’s Café, then fold up a beach towel and chair and spend the day at the hotel’s urban beach. When you’re ready to unwind, the peaceful lobby is the site from 3-5 p.m. for wine, rugby games are going on across the street, or check out the Honolulu Museum of Art – admission for two is included in your stay. At night, relax in your modern digs and enjoy the city lights. It’s a meditation just staring out into the night sky

Room Tip: Ask for a corner unit with view of Diamondhead and the Pacific from two lanais. Perfect for families...

About 3/4 of a mile north of the hustle and bustle of the main Waikiki hotel and shopping area, the Lotus is in a pleasant setting; near the beach, across the street from a huge park and close to Diamond Head. The walk to the name-brand hotel area is easy and enjoyable, passing the Honolulu Aquarium. It has a boutique hotel feel, derived from attentive, friendly service and quiet ambiance. There is a direct path to a small beach, only some 100 yards away. Beach chairs are provided, though of the no leg variety. A continental breakfast is offered for sale, which we found convenient. We asked for and got a high, corner room and were not diaappointed, with beautiful views of both the ocean and Diamond Head. We would definitely recommend the Lotus as an excellent value and a quiet alternative to Waikiki's big chain hotels.

Room Tip: Corner room

the staff were great. amenities worth the extra fee
my room was great. loved it all
only thing keeping them from a perfect score- no restaurant
beautiful setting
great location , close to bars and restaurants
suggest dinner at Michels but be prepared for $100 a head with wine, and breakfast at Hau Tree lanai, but again be prepared for expense

Room Tip: no need fitness or pool, on park and ocean beach

my stay in Diamond Head wouldn't have been as great if it weren't for the
lotus and its primo location. Away from the bustle on a beautiful beach and surrounded by parks, and within minutes to walk to more beaches. Feeling as comfortable as I did was mainly due to the warm, friendly, and very helpful staff. It was my first solo trip and they made it my home away from home! Thanks you guys-Mahalo

Fantastic staff and service, very friendly and welcoming. Is a 10 minute walk to the centre of town - and I ended up really appreciating being away from the busyness of downtown Waikiki. Beautiful beach 100 metres away, lovely room and helpful staff.

I loved it here. We checked in early and walked into a beautiful ocean facing room. The room felt so light and fresh and I could have spent days just lounging on the chaise looking out at both diamond head and the sea. The upgrade was def worth it!!

The staff here went over and above in helping us but especially when my husband has his phone stolen on the main strip. They were helpful in giving us advice and seemed genuinely concerned.

You have access to beach towels and cruiser bikes which you should make the most of. The beach rig in front if the hotel is perfect and not too busy.

If you're a walker or runner it's the perfect position to run diamond head in the morning or trek at night to watch the sun go down.

Our corner room had 2 balconies overlooking Diamond Head & the ocean. This hotel is not oceanfront but has lovely ocean views & the beach is a short walk. The hotel even provides beach chairs, bikes, waters, etc. Our room was very clean & spacious & the staff is excellent!!! The valet, concierge, etc. are absolutely knowledgeable & accommodating. Take advantage of the free wine happy hour in the lobby, great time to visit with fellow guests. It's also within walking distance of the Aquarium & the Zoo. We did not visit these but might be good for families visiting with kids. I highly recommend the Chief's Luau, it was a lot of fun.

Room Tip: The corners rooms are great, double views & balconies
