For moments when you need a break between your island activities, thoughtful on-site amenities will inspire relaxation. Take a refreshing dip in the intimate soaking pool, lay out on the sun deck lounges and hanging basket chairs, and grab a drink or a bite to eat at Aloha Steak Waikiki restaurant. When you’re ready to galavant again, visit our concierge who can help you plan your next adventure. The Oasis’ charm speaks for itself — it’s a slice of paradise in the heart of Waikiki.
We ended up going to Hawaii during the beginning of the coronavirus outbreak. Things were starting to shut down around us and the weather wasn't great for a lot of the days. Our stay at this hotel was a bright spot of our trip as the staff was very friendly, the rooms were comfortable and well taken care of, and the continental breakfast was a really nice addition.
Our experience with the staff, especially Olivia, was top notch. Her aloha spirit and willingness to help us and be flexible was so appreciated.
Thank you for a great trip!
Great price, great location, friendly staff
We stayed 3 nights at the Aqua Oasis hotel in Waikiki.
The location was great and the price was way less than nearby hotels. There is an amenity fee, which is described quite well at the start of this listing. All hotels in Waikiki (in Hawaii?) charge an amenity fee, so this is not a gotcha.
We were in room 911 (easy to remember). It had a king bed, TV, A/C, table and 2 chairs, desk and chair, electronic safe, coffee maker, and a small fridge with a freezer compartment. There was a balcony with a table and 2 chairs.
The bathroom had a big tub and shower.
We arrived by car, early, and asked if they could hold our bags until check-in, so we could go sightseeing without worrying about luggage in the car. Sure, no problem. The man at the curb also suggested alternate parking, when I didn't want to valet park the car. He showed me the metered parking lot behind the hotel, but cautioned that it was not fenced in, and could be full.
We used this lot, which cost (max) $25 for 24 hours, or $15 from 5 PM to 6 AM. Since we were gone during the day, we used the latter fee. Since street (metered) parking was free for 2 hours with a handicap permit (which we had), the effort to move the car at 6 AM was worth it.
The breakfast would run out of things and could be very crowded, especially during rush hour, so plan ahead. We did enjoy the daily newspaper, and our friends (who are smokers, and arrived the day after us) really enjoyed the fish pond smoking area. I even tried the small hotel pool one day.
There is a restaurant (can't remember the name) which is directly accessible from the lobby area.
The staff was always friendly, and we enjoyed our stay. We would stay here again.
Aqua Oasis Waikiki Joy Hotel
(Tweed Heads, Australia)
Maria is the lady at reception, who made us feel very welcome for our 2 night stay, before we cruised the Ovation back to Sydney via Tahiti and New Zealand.
The hotel is situated in a convenient position close to shops, restaurants and beach.
The apartments are kept clean and there is a pool and wi-fi is complementary.
Breakfast was included for us, and we felt at home staying here.
Thank you Olivia for your Aloha. Just ask to extend stay 1 more night as room was very nice & since they were consolidating room inventory she ask if I don't mind moving for an upgrade. Took 10 minutes & upgrade was wonderful. Mahalo Olivia 🤗🤙 will stay again
Great service at a wonderful property - the staff are amazing and very helpful. Great location close to everything you need with restaurants, shops and beach at your doorstep.
Would recommend this property to all my friends & family.
When you're not out exploring, kickback and chill with amenities like our sun deck and dipping pool. Our hotel offers an intimate boutique experience in a lush open-air setting that's true to its name, Oasis.
