Hilton Hawaiian Village at Waikiki Beach Resort

Life isn't pointless. You just have to sharpen it a little bit.
Published July 9th 2013
Recently I had the grand opportunity to visit Hawaii, and had a delightful stay at the Hilton Hotel of Honolulu, located in the Waikiki Village area on the island paradise of Oahu. The scenery of the hotel was scrumptious, and the staff friendlier than a postcard from Disneyland. My room was a pleasant change from the typical inn. Atop freshly vacuumed carpet sat a luxurious king size bed adorned with 6 pillows (you say overkill, I say zzzzzzzz). The bathroom, split up over two rooms, totaled 3 sinks, one shower, one toilet, and about 7 mirrors. Quite frankly, I think they could have used more mirrors.

My day, usually a hectic mix of work, college, and social life, was comprised of a Starlight Luau, followed by a walk on the beach.

If you have never had the chance to attend an authentic Hawaiian Luau on the rooftop of the Hilton Hotel, I suggest you stop whatever you are doing (after you finish reading this, of course) and purchase a ticket to do so immediately. The combination of exquisite food, energized dancing, and humorous commentary by our host provide a night like no other. Not only was the even entertaining, but also educational, as the dances captured the culture of the many islands of Polynesia.

Once the fires of the Luau fade, head to the Duke Kahanamoku Beach for some priceless R&R. The waves gentle lapping against the shore will carry you off to a personal paradise, free from all stress and worries. The crystal clear water will wash away any concerns you came with, and lull you into a peaceful state of tranquility.

Let this relaxation go with you as you travel back to the hotel room and into your bed. Snuggle up to your six pillows and drift away into a land of wondrous dreams about what tomorrow holds for you at the Hilton Hotel of Honolulu.

Hilton Hotel Lobby
Honestly, more hotels should have outdoor, poolside lobbies
