Wayfarer TV exclusive: inside the stylish Prince Waikiki hotel in Honolulu

by James Wilkinson

Across from Wayfarer’s favourite American mall, the Ala Moana Center, you’ll find a leading O’ahu hotel that’s headlined by a fantastic infinity pool, spacious suites and one of the best club lounges in Honolulu. Welcome to the Prince Waikiki.

If you love shopping, ocean views, sunsets, spacious suites, infinity pools, club lounges and sushi, Prince Waikiki should be high on your radar when it comes to choosing an O’ahu hotel for your next Hawaii trip.

Here is a hotel that is away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki Beach, yet is still positioned perfectly to also lap up some of the area’s best things to do, including shopping at the Ala Moana Center, exploring Downtown and heading off on a sailing charter.

That’s if you want to leave this hotel, because once you uncover Prince Waikiki’s pool lined with cabanas and adjacent club lounge, you’ll find it hard to leave.

Prince Waikiki also boasts some of O’ahu’s most stylish guestrooms and spacious suites, which offer floor-to-ceiling ocean views of the South Pacific, which are most definitely at their best when the sun sets.

“Each of Prince Waikiki’s ocean view hotel rooms and suites embodies the laid-back essence of O’ahu, with all the little delights and details that matter,” said Prince Waikiki General Manager, Joshua Hargrove.

“And with views so stunning from the inside, just imagine what awaits a stone’s throw away.”

The hotel is also home to some fantastic eateries, including the signature 100 Sails Restaurant and Bar which serves up an epic buffet you’ll be going for seconds at, alongside Katsumidori Sushi Tokyo off the lobby and the casual poolside Hinana Bar.

In the mornings, head to the Honolulu Coffee Company for a fantastic cup of coffee and those who like to play around, get the team to book you a round at the recently refreshed 27-hole Hawai’i Prince Golf Club.

Qantas’ brilliant Business Class ‘Suite’


Qantas operates direct flights to Honolulu from Sydney, Australia, with Airbus A330s that feature the airline’s latest Business Class cabin.

Qantas’ Business Class cabin is headlined by a ‘suite’ seat – now available on all the Boeing 787-9, Airbus A330-200 and Airbus A330-300 jets in the fleet and select Airbus A380-800s – that has been popular with executive and leisure travellers since it first arrived on the scene in 2016.

This next-generation Business Class seat from the Flying Kangaroo can be reclined for take-off and landing, and the cabin offering also includes top Australian food and wine and world-class entertainment.
