Outrigger Reef on the Beach

2169 Kalia Rd., Honolulu, Hawaii, 96815, USA

What had been a plain but pleasant oceanfront bargain now offers polished elegance in keeping with its prime location, the beachfront property having been drastically improved through renovations of its guest rooms and the addition of a Hawaii-themed entry. The signature poolside restaurant Kani Ka Pila Grille offers nightly live music by legendary Hawaiian entertainers—though the Shore Bird Restaurant & Beach Bar and Ocean House Restaurant are also options. It's worthwhile to go for an ocean view or oceanfront accommodation in the Ocean Tower; other rooms have less enchanting views, but bathrooms have a fresh, contemporary design. It's a completely smoke-free hotel. In 2017 the resort plans to create a 34,000-square-foot open recreation space including enhanced swimming pools, landscaped lounging areas and open-air dining options, with construction continuing through 2019.
