Arrived at Aqua Bamboo and Spa and got immediately an upgraded room. Rooms are quite small! I made sure that our room didn't face the main street - we didn't have any view - but wasn't noisy at night. If you rent a car park next door for $5 less a day. We could see our car from you can...

We decided to do a quick trip to Hawaii to unwind. I picked the Aqua Bamboo after seeing an offer for $99 per night for a Kitchenette Room. The pictures on Tripadvisor looked decent and I really only paid attention to the reviews made by travelers who did not join Tripadvisor on the same day that they posted grand reviews...

Our guests really enjoy the refreshing lemon water and iced tea in the lobby, especially after a wonderful day lounging in our beautiful poolside courtyard! Complimentary use of oversized beach towels is available...

Staff were very helpful & when we arrived after a long overnight flight well before check-in time they offered to store our luggage or provide immediate access to an upgraded room at a modest increased daily rate which we took.

I almost never write reviews but I wanted to take a moment and say that the Aqua Bamboo and Spa is hands-down one of the most amazing hotels I've ever stayed at. In bustling mega-plex Waikiki, this place is a tropical oasis of sweet smiling staff, gorgeous lobby, wonderful practical rooms, and a lush and lovely pool area. What really...

Friendly staff especially Devina, Anthony and Puna. Great comfortable and intimate pool area with a beautiful water fountain and lush palms and ferns. Felt like our own oasis, home away from home. Rooms were very neat and clean. As we say in Oz... "Just our cuppa tea"!

As an Australian Travel Agent, I am very fortunate to travel and stay at 5* locations and Hotels. However my choice for the annual R&R trip, is to return to Honolulu and without hesitation, to stay at the AQUA BAMBOO & SPA. Why, you might ask when also available are the 5* Starwood Hotels, the Outrigger Hotels, and many other...
