Here in Hawaii, hospitality doesn’t come with a stiff lip and white gloves. We think true Hawaiian hospitality is about treating your guests like they were part of your ohana. It’s this mindset that’s at the core of everything we do here. To create The Surfjack, we wanted to pay homage to the true soul of Waikiki, not the prefabricated version peddled to the masses. To bring our vision to life, we collaborated with some of Honolulu’s brightest visionaries to build a hotel reminiscent of the city’s mid-century heyday, all the while celebrating the effervescent creative movement that’s reshaping the city today.
Nestled on Lewers Street, we’re but a short walk or bike ride to some of the most storied beaches, waves, and shopping in the country. And when it comes to dining, we’re proud to have teamed up with famed local chef Ed Kenney to create Mahina & Sun’s, offering a progressive-yet-comforting menu that’s representative of Hawaii’s real palate.
When you’re not lounging at the beach or exploring the island, we welcome you to sprawl out at the Swim Club, a space where both locals and visitors alike can comfortably congregate by the pool over the perfect cocktail and talk story. If the mood hits you, you can always catch one of our nightly movie screenings at the pool. And at our men’s and women’s boutique, Olive & Oliver, we’ve built a shop that’s both contemporary and quintessentially authentic to Hawaii.
From our 112 vintage-inspired rooms, you’ll find yourself surrounded by a comfortable and mid-century aesthetic. But you didn’t come to Honolulu to stay inside, did you? We didn’t think so, that’s why we encourage all of our guests to get out and explore this amazing island, step slightly outside their comfort zones, and make a memory they’ll be talking about for decades to come. Welcome to the Surfjack, a swell little spot in Waikiki.
We are stoked to have made a splash on Condé Nast Traveller UK’s Hot List and being one of the magazine’s top picks of the hottest hotels and beach clubs around the globe in 2017.
