Sheraton Moana Surf Rider Waikiki Photos

There are many luxurious hotels in Waikiki, but the oldest one that was built in 1901, is Sheraton Moana Surf Rider, originally named as the Moana Hotel. Even at the beginning of the 20th century the Moana was considered an innovation in the travel industry featuring a private bathroom and a telephone in every room that was an unheard luxury at that time.

Today "The First Lady" of Waikki has aged beautifully and gracefully, with its elegant interior that takes you back to the times of wealth, leisure and afternoon tea. By the way, you may still have afternoon tea there on Banyan veranda.

Step back in time of Waikki’s first hotel which is listed in National Register of Historic Places. Sheraton Moana Surf Rider is the oldest and one of the most respectable hotels in Waikki that features all modern conveniences and chic comfort. Originally, the building of the hotel was constructed in the Italian Renaissance style, but later reconstructions and innovations added new themes, but they were harmonious additions, like a fine opera joining a number of themes into a culminating finale. After the renovation, three main buildings of the hotel – the Banyan, Tower and Diamond wings – now form an elegant complex of lush accommodations, award winning dining establishments and exciting shopping.

Filled with memories of the time past, the renovated Moana is magically luxurious. The first thing you will see on arriving there is the grand columns of porte cochere, past the highly polished front porch, where a doorman in crisp uniform will greet you. The restored lobby features a series of genteel parlor arrangements like urns, chandeliers, sofas, koa tables, flowers, vases, glass-topped pedestal tables. Every detail of the interior is conducive to relaxation in comfort. The female employees even wear traditional muumuus of Victorian period. Everything is designed here to create Aloha spirit and a charming atmosphere.

Then the elevator will take to the second floor where you will find your room which is just simple elegance with Queen-size beds, rattan chairs and fluffy pillows. Every suite features bathroom which is tiled with marble with stocks of towels, soaps, shampoos and creams, makeup mirrors and bathroom scales. Everything is lush and exquisite. It’s impossible to get a bad room as mostly all rooms overlook the ocean and every room features such amenities as bedside controls and plush robes. The rooms in the Banyan Wing are smaller and have no lanais, but they make up for in style, as modern-day replicas of 19th century interior make you feel as though you came back to the Old Hawaii, with such Hawaiian traditional arts and crafts activities as coconut palm weaving and quilt making. The Historical Room is worth seeing with many artifacts of Hawaiian culture on display.

Being the first hotel built in Waikiki, the Moana enjoys a paramount location of a beachfront hotel with lifeguards, beach chairs, towels and any other service that you may desire. It boasts one of the best views of Diamond Head. There is a swimming pool with sundeck and the activity center is surely to engage you in a classic outrigger canoe ride or a sunset sail on a catamaran. The Beach Bar and the poolside snack bar are situated on the oceanfront courtyard which is centered around a 100 year old Banyan tree and where live music is played in the evening.

Two casual restaurants and a lounge serve wonderful cuisine and the Banyan Veranda is famous for its sumptuous Sunday Brunch and is the place where you can have afternoon tea.

Many rooms overlook the central Banyan Court, a place of bright night entertainment that can be chamber music or soft Hawaiian tune. Open the window of your room and let the fresh ocean breeze billow the curtains bringing the sound of the whispering of the waves mixed with the live music played in the distance.
