Nearly every hotel on Oahu is “near” or “steps from” the beach, according to their respective websites. However, you demand to take convenience one step further, with a property that places you right on the sand from the moment you walk out of the lobby. Good for you – you spend hard earned dough to come to paradise and if you don’t want to walk on concrete to get to the sea you shouldn’t have to. Some of you want even greater convenience, especially if on the island for a short time, and are seeking beachfront accommodations near the airport. Whatever the case may be as HNL’s premier private (and affordable flat rate) shuttle service we have compiled a list of hotels to meet your needs.
5 Hotels and Resorts Near Honolulu International Airport Located Right on the Beach (and how to get to each)
Hilton Hawaiian Village (approximately 8 miles)
2005 Kalia Rd, Waikiki Beach, Honolulu, HI
All prime beachfront hotels near HNL are located in Waikiki. The first one that you’ll run into coming from the airport is the famed Hilton Hawaiian Village, which can be reached in under 20 minutes from baggage claim when traffic allows. This expansive report property spills right out from the open air lobby and on to Duke Kahanamoku Lagoon, and to the east the rest of Waikiki Beach awaits. From HNL, this is where it all really begins, at least as far as the South Shore of Oahu is concerned. View more on the Hilton Hawaiin Village and how to get there.
Outrigger Reef and Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort (approximately 8.5 and 9 miles)
2169 Kalia Rd, Waikiki Beach, Honolulu, HI
2335 Kalakaua Ave, Waikiki Beach, Honolulu, HI
We’re combining both Outrigger beachfront properties into one for the sake of convenience. Both are remarkable resorts with a distinct Hawaiian Island vibe, from design to decor, and will have you right on the Pacific sands within seconds of leaving the check-in area. Each also boasts beachfront eateries to boot, with The Reef Bar & Market Grill (Outrigger Reef) and Duke’s Waikiki (Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort) planted right there on the beach.
Sheraton Waikiki Beach Resort (approximately 9 miles)
2255 Kalakaua Ave, Waikiki Beach, Honolulu, HI
Sheraton Waikiki Beach Resort is another famous addition found along Waikiki’s post-HNL successive line of beachfront properties. Sheraton’s beachwalk pathway is frequented by locals and visitors alike, but even more well known is their adults-only infinity pool that appears to pour right into the Pacific ocean, which is literally 6-feet away. It doesn’t get much closer to the “edge” of paradise than this. View more on what you need to know about getting from HNL to the the Sheraton Waikiki here.
Royal Hawaiian Hotel (approximately 9 miles)
2259 Kalakaua Ave, Waikiki Beach, Honolulu, HI
The Pink Palace has been here since the beginning of time (in regards to the hospitality industry on Oahu) and will outlast all properties no matter the mergers and acquisitions that result in renovations and new construction. This notable historical landmark may be best known for its pink tone and background in serving Ali’i (Hawaiian royalty, essentially) but it is also heralded as being the preeminent beachfront resort on the island. At just over 9 miles from HNL it’s just as convenient. View more on what you need to know about getting from HNL to the Royal Hawaiian here.
Moana Surfrider Hotel (approximately 9.5 miles)
2365 Kalakaua Ave, Waikiki Beach, Honolulu, HI
Next to the Royal Hawaiian, this is the other most historically renowned Waikiki Beach property, and the large banyan tree that fronts (from the beach side) the establishment also reaches out on to the off-white sands of the South Shore. The Moana Surfrider and its tall Romanesque columns may stand in contrast to what you’d expect from a beachfront resort, but within minutes of checking in you can grab a board and surf with local Waikiki Beach boys and soak of the mana of the likes of Duke Kahanamoku along with other legends that rode the waves just outside of this property. Or, just lay out a towel and chill – it’s entirely up to you.
