THE NEW OTANI KAIMANA BEACH HOTEL

Honolulu, Hawaii 96815

On the quiet end of Waikiki Beach at the foot of Diamond Head in Kapiolani Park is The New Otani Kaimana Beach Hotel. In a setting that is simply incomparable, the Kaimana, as it is affectionately known, literally sits on secluded Sans Souci, a golden strand of beach shared by only a few exclusive residences and two private clubs. In fact, it was Robert Louis Stevenson who once wrote, "If anyone desires lovely scenery, pure air, clear sea water and heavenly sunsets, I recommend him cordially to the San Souci."
Soft pastels and private balconies with stunning views of Waikiki, Diamond Head and the park make the guest rooms uncommonly inviting. The spacious ninth-floor suites, done in dramatic color schemes, are exceptionally pleasing in this boutique hotel.
The hotel's restaurants typify the harmony achieved between the relaxing attitudes of a tropical paradise and the centuries-old Japanese innkeeping tradition based on perfect hospitality for every guest. The open-air, beachfront Hau Tree Lanai specializes in creative and flavorful entrees using fresh island ingredients. Dinner, served by candlelight and torchlight, might be papaya salad, local fish prepared steamed, broiled or sauteed, Oahu gourmet ice cream and fresh-ground Kona blend coffee.
The Miyako is among the finest Japanese restaurants anywhere outside of Tokyo. If offers Western-style seating as well as tatami rooms for traditional dining, and its prices are surprisingly reasonable.
With Kapiolani Park at its front doorstep, the Kaimana is at the heart of sports and culture. Its parkside location gives guests ideal access to jogging, cycling, tennis and golf, as well as a front row seat to floral parades, concerts and hula shows. The Kaimana is also headquarters for the Diamond Head Climbers Hui, for adventurers who have hiked to the top of Hawaii's most famous landmark. For ocean lovers, equipment is available for snorkeling and kayaking.
