Espacio The Jewel Of Waikiki
What it is
A nine suite, nine story tower rising above Waikiki Beach with a locally inspired spa, decadent locavore restaurant, and peerless service.
What it isn't
Scrimping. All guests are treated to VIP-level perks, including luxury airport transfers, car rentals, eye-popping breakfasts at Mugen, gratis admission to the Honolulu Museum of Art, and more.
What we think
If you’ve ever coveted the penthouse owner’s experience: i.e., having your very own floor, rather than a mere cubbyhole of an apartment, you will find yourself completely blissed out by Espacio. Here, in a resort named after the Spanish word for “space,” you will have an entire floor to yourself—one with a private balcony and Jacuzzi, marble finishes, a canopy bed swaddled in romantic mosquito netting, and myriad other perks (including multiple bathrooms, dry saunas, TOTO washlets). There are no bad options here, but to feel like Beyonce on her honeymoon, book the Penthouse Diamond Suite: its top floor perch means you’ll have one of the most eye-popping ocean panoramas in all of Hawaii.
You're here because
You want to feel like you live in Hawaii, if only for the duration of your vacation. And here, you’ll be “living” lavishly.
Your breakfasts here are included in your stay, and yet they are the exact opposite of the standard continental buffet: every plate looks like a piece of art, from the lobster eggs benedict dusted with trout caviar to the housemade coconut granola with honey from the Big Island. You may never leave.
