The Modern Honolulu

****

The Modern Honolulu hotel masters Hawaiian hipness: as well as the most in-demand restaurant in town, it flaunts four bars, a nightclub and its own tropical garden.

Highlights:

  • Innovative new take on the Oahu high-rise hotel scene

    Waikiki's hippest restaurant, four bars, a nightclub and a spa

    Luxury lounging by day, and the hottest parties by night

Smith extra

Tropical fruit plate and mineral water upon arrival.

In the know

Also need to know:

Lightweight doggies (25lbs or less) can stay for US$50 a night.The spa has four treatment rooms, and separate mani-pedi stations. Everything is natural and neutral, including the plant-based Éminence Organic Skin Care products. Book in and have a muscle-calming Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massage, which simulates the movement of ocean waves.

Packing tips:

You’ll find essential Hawaiian gear (sarongs, a ukelele) in your room, but don’t forget binoculars for whale-watching, as well as heels and look-at-me clothes for dressing up after dark.

Dress code:

Flash your cash – labels won’t go amiss here. Avoid citrussy shades unless you want to clash with the chairs.

Mr and Mrs Smith reviews

For years, Mr Smith and I have avoided Waikiki for fear it would be littered with tourists in bad Hawaiian shirts and wilted purple leis. That, and the trend of area hotels resembling something between a shopping mall and Disney's Adventureland: in other words, the exact opposite of a tropical escape on one of the world’s most remote islands.

Then, we heard whispers of a hotel that was sexy and sophisticated, a minimalist haven with a beach-pad vibe. What sealed the deal was the fact that we could fly Hawaiian Airlines from Sydney to New York via Honolulu to enjoy a languorous few days loung

Dining information

Restaurant:

Morimoto Waikiki is the island’s see-and-be-seen restaurant. Masaharu Morimoto, star of gladiatorial TV cook-off Iron Chef, heads up the team of elite sushi chefs. The Japanese menu has Western touches: at lunch, try the lobster melt sandwich with miso mayo, tomato and Swiss cheese, or the Wagyu mini burgers with pork kakuni, cabbage and Japanese mustard. The dinner menu includes tuna pizza and duck served three ways, including duck meatball soup. Inside, lime leather chairs, sleek wooden tables and suspended glass boxes keep it sharp; outside, comfy white sofas and fire pits await.

Top table:

The tables are packed close, so be aware that any sweet nothings will be shared with your neighbours. Chances are it’s balmy, so head outside and dine on the lanai overlooking the marina or one of the poolside bars.

Last orders:

The restaurant serves lunch between 11am and 2.30pm; dinner is from 5pm until 10pm Sunday to Thursday, 11pm Friday and Saturday. Lobby Bar is open till 1 am Sunday to Thursday, 3am Friday and Saturday.

Room service:

The full restaurant menu is available 24 hours a day.

Hotel bar:

Five: the Sunrise Pool has a cocktail bar; adults-only Sunset Pool has 100 tonnes of sand on its home-made beach, plus its own lagoon, as well as staff who’ll wander past your hammock and spritz you with Evian if you’re looking a little sweaty; the Lobby Bar hides during the day behind the rotating bookcase in reception and only reveals its giant sofas, low lights and custom cocktails at 6pm; industrial Addiction is the hotel’s own nightclub – queues go round the block for people wanting to get past the rusty steel doors into the concrete club and listen to sets by hot international DJs; and Morimoto has its own bar.
