Beach bikes, swim towels, robes, beach chairs, laundry, afternoon wine and cheese, morning coffee and all the bottled water you want.

We were in Honolulu for my cousin's wedding and decided to stay here for a couple of nights. I had not visited Oahu before, but I knew that we did not want to be in the middle of Waikiki, and the Lotus worked well for us. It was relatively peaceful. It had access to a couple of small beaches. There...

This is our first lodging in Oahu and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The room was spacious, clean and tastefully designed, and the cookie and relaxing Hawaiian music playing on the radio that greeted us were a nice touch. We took advantage of their many amenities, including afternoon wine/snacks every day, beach chairs/towels, robes/slippers, complimentary bottled water daily in room...
