Our 9-day blissful vacation in Oahu, Hawaii was spent in North Shore and Waikiki.  Thanks to the hotel points we saved, we were able to stay at 3 beautiful hotels in the island for free!  This is my hotel review on Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort & Spa and the reasons why you should consider it on your trip to Honolulu.

Hotel

Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort & Spa is a huge hotel filled with 3 levels of boutiques and specialty stores.  Between the towers is an atrium with palm trees, waterfall and fountain.  The atrium gives the hotel a fresh, open-air ambiance.  There are also parrots showcased on the first and second floors.  On the third floor, you will find the outdoor pool, lounge chairs, whirlpool, and poolside restobar.  You can also get complimentary beach chairs, towels and bags if available.

The front desk has a tropical feel which is a nice welcome to this beach vacation.  Across the front desk, you could inquire for Hawaiian tours and activities.

Welcome Amenities

As the Hawaiian tradition, they adorned us with fresh, violet lei to welcome us.  Receiving the lei felt like one of my dreams finally came true.  “I’m in Hawaii!” just kept running in my head.

When we entered our room, we found milk chocolates and a beautiful set-up of flowers on our bed.

The Room

The room was spotless, spacious, and modern.  It had a bright ambiance which we liked.  Its decorations are simple but beautiful.  It has framed photos that match the beach and lamps with a shade similar to the sandy color of the shore.

The room also had a sofa bed and a balcony.

The king bed was comfortable to sleep on and the sheets were cozy.  If it weren’t for the beautiful beach and the free breakfast, we might not have been able to get up on time!

It is complete with TV, safety-deposit box, coffeemaker, and wall clock.  Guests can also access the Chromecast for in-room entertainment.

Instead of the usual key card, we were given wristbands.  It minimizes the risk of forgetting or losing the key especially when we go out to swim.  Very convenient!

Bathroom and Amenities

The toiletries include a set of facial bar, body lotion, conditioner, body wash, shampoo, and massage soap from Na Ho’ola  Spa.  They have a refreshing, sweet coco mango scent!

The toilet is one of the special features of the room.  It is similar to the toilets in Japan.  It has built-in washer/sprayer and dryer.

Balcony View

We absolutely fell in love with the view from our balcony!  The view of the Waikiki beach was unbelievable – perfect blue sky with patches of clouds, the ocean’s different shades of blue, shoreline, and palm trees.  On the beach were yachts, surfers and swimmers.  It felt good to relax on our balcony with that view.

Regency Club Lounge

With our Globalist status (previously Diamond status), we were given free access to the club lounge.  It serves continental breakfast, mid-day snack, hors d’oeuvres, and desserts daily.

It was hard to eat out because we always get full with the food from the club lounge.  For breakfast, there were apple danish, croissants, muffins, assorted cold cuts, assorted cheese, hard-boiled egg, Eggs Benedict on Hawaiian sweet rolls, smoked salmon, fresh fruits, and miso soup.  For dinner, there were chili lime chicken, vegetable dip, vegetable chips, DIY salad, and chicken noodle soup.  For desserts, we had cookies and lemon squares.  It was always a feast!

Location

The excellent location of Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort & Spa is one of the reasons we chose to stay there.  It is right across the Waikiki beach!

Customer Service

We received nothing less than excellent customer service from their front desk and club lounge.  They recognized our loyalty status and they run us through our benefits.  They even upgraded our room to ocean view and waived our resort and parking fees.  Check-in and check-out were fast.  We didn’t pay for anything!

We were fortunate to stay at Hyatt Regency Waikiki during our anniversary.  They went above our expectations when they honored our wedding anniversary.  They gave us 2 bottles of champagne to celebrate it!  Thank you, Hyatt!

    The view from the room is amazing! so many surfers in the water, it’s so crowded! Would love to join them nevertheless!! Love the palm-trees in the hotel lobby too! But I’m sad for the poor bird in the cage :/

  2. Absolutely gorgeous shot from your balcony! WOW!!! Many of my friends are Hyatt loyalists and recommend the Hawaii Hyatt properties. I know that Hawaii can be expensive, so I bet your saved a bunch by having access to the lounge with your Globalist status. I’ll have to consider this property the next time I visit Hawaii.

  3. This place is insane. I would love to go to Hawaii. Everything about this hotel sounds amazing – the wristbands are a great idea

  4. What a luxurious resort. Spending wedding anniversary in this resort is great gift. It is very nice of the hotel that provided you with 2 champagne bottle. I loved the view from balcony as turquoise colored water is my weakness. Bed also looks romantic and super soft.

    Hawaii is always a good idea! I’ve never been to Oahu, but my friend just returned last week from the North Shore. This hotel is beautiful! I’m not sure I would stay here, but it looks amazing!

  6. You managed so many hotel points that it covered 9 days in Hawaii! Wow! That’s awesome!
    Orchids arrangement on the bed? That’s so perfectly Hawaii!!!
    Wristbands instead of key cards! That’s just taking it to the next level!

  7. The Hyatt Regency looks like the perfect place to stay in Waikiki. The heart flowers and chocolates make this perfect for a couple. The Regency Club Lounge looks very convenient with delicious food. The view from the balcony is incredible, those shots you took are so colorful.

  8. The Hyatt Regency Waikiki looks like a gorgeous place to stay especially for your anniversary. They really do think of every detail. And your view from the balcony is incredible, a view to boast about. Lucky you got free access to the club lounge. Eating out in Hawaii can get real expensive, but worth it for the experience I suppose. Great shots of your time in Waikiki.

  9. The bath products look really good, appealing, and tropical. Coco mango sounds like a perfect flavor of an ice cream. Haha! I like the view so much. The location of the hotel is great. I love that you can have a chance to go to the market. The baked goods and pastries look delicious. I hope that I can also stay in Hyatt Regency Waikiki someday.
