THE MODERN HONOLULU: Where Legendary Experiences Are Made

For a true taste of Hawaiian Island bliss, you must stay at THE MODERN HONOLULU. This distinct hotel is a rare jewel on Oʻahu and promises to provide travelers with a one-of-a-kind experience in one of the world’s most sought-after destinations.

Offering a full array of impeccable services, complimented by unexpected amenities, sublime dining experiences and vibrant entertainment options, you won’t regret acquainting yourself with THE MODERN. While perfect service may be a slippery elixir for some boutique hotels, THE MODERN gets it right — every time. It is incredibly cool and importantly different from the rest.

Employees don’t speak from memorized transcripts and the vibe is pure Aloha.

The fairly new hotel has become an essential experience while staying on the Island. It delivers the ideal blend of rest and revelry, urban modernity and unparalleled charm. Once checked-in, you will discover that THE MODERN has not only the finest accommodations, but also the best dining, relaxation, and nightlife options Waikiki has to offer.

Finishing touches are what define this luxury boutique hotel. There’s a legitimately good reason the hotel received AAA’s Four-Diamond rating and its guests leave impartially noteworthy reviews on the Internet like clockwork.

Not quite sure what it means to stay at a Four-Diamond resort?

You’ll find yourself constantly surprised by smallest and grandest of things. Come to think of it, this place is so awesome that you may not ever want to leave. THE MODERN may have been created with high-class globetrotters in mind, but everyone is welcome, not just the rich.

Around every corner of this man-made nirvana, you are invited to see, feel, sip, taste, hear, do and try something wonderfully new. It is also centrally located near the city’s many distinctive neighborhoods, cultural institutions, and area attractions.

Research shows that it takes as little as three seconds for people to form an impression of a new place. This first impression is nearly impossible to change. Well, guess what? Your first impression of THE MODERN will be memorable.


One word. Ambiance. I once heard that it’s the little things that count, and when staying at THE MODERN it is evident everywhere you look: individually chosen contemporary, upscale design elements and concepts, furnished terraces, spacious alcoves, and dramatic views unequalled in Honolulu. It’s an atmosphere that pays homage to the Island’s local character. While the space is meant to energize and stimulate the senses, it simultaneously instills a sense of peace and retreat.

It’s an experimental world in which to immerse yourself. When you travel, you don’t want to stay in a hotel that “feels like home.” Forget home. You want legendary experiences.


Step into Morimoto Wakiki from Iron Chef Morimoto and prepare to pick your jaw up off the floor. This place is simply incredible. This culinary journey might encompass some roasted kahole lobster with lemon crème fraîche (market price), or a crispy whole fish with pickled papaya salad and spicy tofu sauce ($45).

Executive Chef at THE MODERN, Scott Toner, designed a custom menu for The Study, complete with 100 percent locally grown organic ingredients. Even if you’re not particularly hungry before ordering a drink, you’ll end up getting some pupus off the tempting menu, like the Shrimp + Scallop Potstickers with roasted pineapple and soy dipping sauce ($14).

If you’re the type who enjoys relaxing and eating poolside, you can also order small plates at either the Sunrise or Sunset Pools to satisfy your culinary cravings.


The hotel’s ADDICTION Nightclub will give you the opportunity to party like you mean it. Open Thursday, Friday and Saturday, this nightclub is the perfect blend of locals, jet-setters and A-listers. The music, cocktails and atmosphere do all the talking.

It has what it takes for memorable night… and those rare early mornings. There’s something about watching the sun rise on Oʻahu that’s synonymous with paradise, especially after having one of the funnest nights of your life.

ADDICTION is definitely where you want to be on the Island for last call. Bottle servicestarts at $250 for something, say, like Bombay Sapphire, up to $3,200 for an exceptional selection such as Louis XIII De Remy Martin. Oh yeah, here’s one important thing to remember: The club prides itself on a strict dress code — no sandy feet or bikini tops. You need to walk in the door wearing something resembling upscale casual attire.


A good night’s rest is the real reason travelers check into a hotel. This is especially important if you choose to spend an evening at the nightclub mentioned above.

With 353 rooms and suites, this place has harmony and comfort locked down. The finest materials, fabrics and specially chosen designs create a unique feel of bliss, as if intuitive to guests’ needs.

After a long day of eating, drinking and adventure, it was the best sleep I’ve ever had in a hotel bed. It must have been those imported linens!

Make sure to book a room with a balcony (private terrace if you’re more discerning) and ocean view — you’ll thank me later. Rooms start at $279 per night.


Grab a drink during happy hour at The Study (a lobby bar hidden behind a bookshelf). They have a reverse happy hour: Recess is Monday thru Friday from 5-7PM and Detention is Sunday thru Thursday from 10PM-2AM. You have to try War and Peace.

The Spa at THE MODERN HONOLULU offers body treatments, facials, and massage, as well as nail and waxing services. This is one spa experience you won’t forget.


Choosing the perfect wedding venue is typically not an easy task, but just take one look at what THE MODERN has to offer and you won’t need to look elsewhere.

Designed to impress, your family and friends will rave about attending a ceremony at THE MODERN.

Not only is this hotel chic and fashionable, staff will provide that personal touch (exquisite quality and heartfelt service) to ensure you have a day to remember. With customized menus, sleek function spaces, and more non-negotiable indulgences that make for a truly exceptional celebration, this venue makes for a truly unique setting.

Depending on what kind of feel you’re going for, the venue offers quite a few options. You can enjoy a marina sunset from the indoor/outdoor Sun Suite Suite with cocktails, or celebrate the night away in a 9,200 square foot elegant ballroom. The choice is yours.

If the ceremony happens to take place on a Friday evening, you and your guests will be treated to a spectacular fireworks show, which Hilton Hawaiian Village puts on. Rental rates range between $4,500 and $40,000.

Whether you’re visiting the Island of Oʻahu to indulge in the perfect romantic getaway, a unparalleled experience while away on business or leisurely pleasure, this luxury boutique hotel will inspire and excite you to discover something new each and every time you stay. It will provide the answer.

THE MODERN never ceases to provide guests with those “wow moments.” It paves the way for future hotels. Others may have more history, but this place is making history of its own.

We hope our stay will help guide your decisions when planning a trip to Oʻahu. The next time we’re on the Island, we don’t plan on booking a room anywhere else. Mahalo!
