Hilton Hawaiian Village
Oahu, Hawaii

The enormous Hilton Hawaiian Village Resort on Waikiki Beach has nearly 3000 rooms, making it the largest hotel in Hawaii by a large margin. It is located on the far west end of Waikiki, between the Ala Wai Yacht Harbor and Fort DeRussy Park. The resort is split into six "villages" or towers, making it feel smaller then the mammoth resort that it is. The Hilton Hawaiian village has five pools, more then twenty restaurants, several shopping areas, and its own branch of the Bishop Museum. The hotel also has a children's program called the Rainbow Express Keiki Club and the Mandara Spa and Fitness Center offers a large menu of body treatments. The Hilton Hawaiian Village hotel is #1 on the list of the 10 largest hotels in Hawaii.

Six Villages Within the Resort
The Hilton Hawaiian Village Resort is the largest hotel in Hawaii, but its six separate "villages" make it feel not quite so huge.

Spa and Fitness Centers
The Mandara Spa at the Hilton Hawaiian Village Resort is located on the third and fourth floors of the Kalia Tower. Spa services include messages, wraps, body scrubs, facials, and salon treatments.

Restaurants and Cafes
There are more then twenty restaurants in the five towers of the Hilton Hawaiian Village Hotel, serving Chinese, Japanese, Italian, Continental, and many other types of food. Includes the award winning award winning Golden Dragon and Bali by the Sea restaurants.

Swimming Pools
There are three swimming pools available to all guests, including a 10,000 square foot "super pool" and adjacent children's pool for daytime use, and a pool between the Tapa Tower and the Diamond Head Tower that is open until 10:00 pm. The Kalia, Alii, and Lagoon Tower swimming pools are reserved exclusively for guests of those towers.

Friday Polynesian Show and Fireworks
Every Friday night there is an aerial fireworks display and a Polynesian show at the Hilton Hawaiian Village featuring music, singing, dancing, and a Samoan fire knife performer. The show usually begins about 6:30 or 7:00 pm and the fireworks begin at 7:30 or 8 pm.

From the Honolulu International Airport, take the H-1 Freeway east toward Honolulu. Stay in the right lane and watch for the Waikiki off ramp freeway signs. Exit onto the Nimitz Highway, which will turn into Ala Moana Boulevard. Drive for approximately 15 minutes. Near the end of your drive, you will pass the huge Ala Moana Shopping Center on your left and Ala Moana Beach Park on your right. After you drive over a short bridge, look for the Hilton Hawaiian Village sign on the right side of the street. Turn right on Kalia Road, drive about 200 feet, and turn right into the driveway of the resort.
