It was my first time in Hawaii since I was a in my early ages, and of course that time didn't count because my memory is very vague from those times. I decided to take a leisure with my two very close friends Linda Nguyen and Ryan Chua to Oahu and explore the island as an adult, and let me tell you Hawaii exceeded my expectations.
One of the main reasons my trip was so satisfying is because of my stay at Prince Waikiki. Prince Waikiki is such a beautiful hotel, the photos don't do it justice. It was beyond my expectations and I couldn't have stayed at a better hotel. It was just newly renovated and let me tell you, it is a sight to see.
First off, the location of this hotel was spectacular. I had a beautiful view of the Ala Wai Harbor and woke up to the view everyday. I was even able to open the windows and breathe the fresh air. Although it is not located at downtown Waikiki, this location was much better because it was so peaceful I was able to enjoy the vacation like I wanted to and relax. To add, the hotel is walking distance to Ala Moana Shopping Center and many amazing restaurants. If you did want to go to downtown Waikiki, it is less than a 10 min. drive.
Second, the hotel staff were so friendly and nice, it made my experience a million times better. Everyone had a smile on the face and never said no when I needed assistance.
Third, the newly renovated hotel rooms and pool area really made this hotel a jewel. The cabanas were luxurious and there was even an Infiniti pool! The bedrooms had class and style and I woke up feeling amazing everyday!
Lastly, I went to the restaurant at the hotel 100 Sails for brunch and the food was spectacular! I tried a taro bun wagyu burger which completely blew my mind! It was so good! Also, I tried the Korean style cauliflower (KFC) which I couldn't believe it was cauliflower because the flavors exploded in my mouth. I ate four of them! I would definitely recommend eating at 100 Sails restaurant during your stay. Brunch also included a full buffet, which offered a wide variety of foods and each dish was flavorful and made to its full potential!
I would return to Prince Waikiki every time I am back in Honolulu because the experience at this hotel was the best experience I've eve had at any hotel before.
