So it turns out Hawaii’s world-renowned surf, sunshine and sandy beaches can be enjoyed while staying in luxury accommodation without breaking the budget. On a recent trip to the Aloha State, we discovered the Surfjack Hotel. Located right in the heart of Waikiki, Surfjack Hotel bridges the gap between beach boutique and rollicking resort and is just a short stroll to the beach and many of the bars and shopping precincts in the city.
The hotel itself is defined by its vintage-inspired beachy architecture and suites. The rooms possess a cosy, mid-century aesthetic, comfortable furniture and modern technologies. Eco-forward travellers will appreciate Beachjack’s approach to sustainability by eliminating single-use plastic amenities.
Outside, the Swim Club pairs refreshing cocktails with compulsive cannonballs by a swim-up bar – a unique hub that frequently hosts open-air movie premieres and story sessions. The on-site restaurant is Mahina & Sun’s. Honolulu-born chef Ed Kenney caters to guests with his delicious take on island cuisine that’s backed by his commitment to offering “elevated home cooking with a Hawaiian sense of place,” and utilising local, organic ingredients.
Surfjack has a range of wellness options, including meditation and pilates, with a view of the Waikiki skyline, and the custom-built bicycles are perfect for exploring the shops and popular sites. Speaking of shopping, Surfjack Hotel has its own shopping destination. It’s called Olive and Olive, and it offers a curated mix of clothing and accessories as an authentic interpretation of Hawaiian culture for men and women alike.
For the holiday period, Surfjack has a great deal for Hawaiin holidaymakers. Book directly through Surfjack Hotel for three nights or more, and receive $100 credit to spend at Mahina & Sun’s, which could potentially cover meals and drinks when dining for two.
Welcome to the Surfjack – a ‘swell’ stayover in Waikiki.
