“Paradise in paradise”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

I've stayed at the Lotus since it was a W years ago. The location is part of it, and now with a solid management and seemingly happy staff, the Lotus is the only place I will stay while in Honolulu. Yes, Waikiki is a 15 minute walk but (a) it's good for you, and (b) the area is quiet at night. Perfect place to stay if you run.

Sad to hear that the restaurant is no longer open. The only thing this place is missing is a decent bar.

My husband and I stayed at the Lotus for two nights in early July 2014. It was our second hotel in Honolulu, so we were not expecting great service. Surprisingly, we were overwhelmed by the caliber of service at this hotel. The staff was very friendly and accommodating and the hotel amenities were excellent. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend to others.

We were really pleased to have discovered and chosen Lotus at Diamond Head, thanks to tripadvisor by the way, and so we want to share our satisfaction.
The hotel is quite and far from the crowded and noisy center of Waikiki where the big hotels are. The room is very large and very very nice with a lot of amenities.
We use to be runners and just outside the lobby you can chose to take the path toward Diamond Head -on the right- or to the beaches -on your left- and start running with a lot of fun.
My wife tried also the yoga lessons and was amazed.
People are very helpful and professional and gave us a loto of support for everything.
Very close there is a wonderful café (barefood beach) with very good food and very cheap prices.
When we will come back, we will stay again in Lotus.

I was so surprized by the Lotus. I stayed one night and it was great. I loved the location. It was quite and the staff were exceptional. I had a Diamond Head view room and it was amazing. I love the hard wood floors and the entire decor was lovely. Wes at the Front Desk was great and went above and beyond. Robert at the valet was also outstanding.

This was a great place to stay off the Waikiki strip. Staff was wonderful and ocean view premium room was great. The complementary wine in the afternoon is a great touch and the little beach is great for a "dip".

Our stay at the Lotus Honolulu was wonderful! This quiet, sophisticated boutique hotel is within reasonable walking distance to shopping and restaurants yet is away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. The staff were cheerful, extremely helpful, and some spoke to us by name. The rooms were spacious, comfortable, and well designed. Ily coffee/coffee makers and small refrigerators were in each room and a small market store is next door. The beach is steps away, with towels, snorkeling gear, and beach chairs available upon request. We had great fun touring Honolulu on the bikes provided and did rent the Volvo SUV for a couple of days as well. The yoga classes, offered at no charge, were a beautiful way to start the day. Complimentary wine was served each afternoon from 4:00 - 6:00 pm. I would highly recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: Rooms on the higher floors have a great view of Diamond Head, ocean, or city.

Booked my aunty at this hotel- was great ! Rooms were very nice, clean, big with balconies. Wonderful staff and great location. The hotel even serves free wine each day between 4-6:00 pm! The front desk attendants were extremely helpful and very friendly. I highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for a quieter experience than the typical Waikiki area.
