About The Modern Honolulu
The Modern Honolulu describes itself as bold, chic, and sexy. It is indeed a change in the norm from hotels and resorts. Classed by some as Hawaii’s only boutique hotel, it is the ideal destination for travellers looking for a Soho Farmhouse-esque vibe in the laid-back land of Hawaii. Hip and contemporary without any self-adoration, this hotel is slick and sophisticated.
Designed by renowned architects and interior designers, there is a unique and original feel to the place, cleverly combining the modern with some nod to the authentic Hawaii. The reception desk gives a wonderful Hawaiian welcome, showcasing a myriad of vibrant surfboards.
When it comes to food and drink, there is one restaurant and three bars – our favourite is The Study, a secret hide-out that comes to life after 18.00. Locals flock to this bar and indeed the onsite nightclub, Addiction, making it one of the most sought-after entertainment addresses in town.
The hotel is ideally placed within walking distance to both Waikiki Beach and superb shopping opportunities, as well as the seaside beaches of Waikiki Beach or Kahanamoku Beach (rated #1 beach of America by Dr Beach).
