If you don't like the busy Waikiki area then this is the resort for you. Its only about a 15 to 20 minute drive if you need to reach Waikiki. The level of service provided is outstanding and it truly is a 5 star resort....More

No. You can purchase breakfast package, but that's it. Since this is Honolulu afterall, you probably do want to venture out some.

the closest luau that I know of would probably be at the Hilton Hawaiian village in Waikiki. I haven't been to that one so I can't speak about the quality or the price, just the location.

Yes you do but the distance is not long so it’s more of a short walk on the beach, but because it’s private, it makes the walk more peaceful and enjoyable.
