We were so happy with our stay at the Lotus. Arrived in time for the complimentary wine at TBD. Had a delicious beef tartare and caesar salad. Headed up to the privae balcony with a spectacular view of Diamond Head and the surfers in front. Christianne was kind and very attentive as were all the members of the staff. The room was clean and spacious. No breakfast on site, but the Hau Tree has a great breakfast next door. Their is a convenience store for snacks and drinks. The Bare foot beach cafe is reasonably priced just a short walk down the beach. A great alternative to the huge hotels of Waikiki. Definitely would stay here again.

Hotel's Favorite
After extensive research about hotels in Honolulu, I decided on the Lotus for our first vacation trip since the beginning of the pandemic. The Lotus experience surpassed all my expectations. What a fabulous location, steps away from two beaches, a world-class French restaurant, Ily coffee and Italian espresso maker in the room, fancy and convenient beach chairs and luxurious towels for the beach days. We walked everyday to the Barefoot Beach cafe nearby, the most scrumptious local restaurant open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner with live music, ever! Walking 15 minutes more through the gorgeous park with lush trees and families having picnics, you get to the craziness, tourist-drenched Waikiki. What also makes the Lotus unique is its staff: Jessica (the fantastic Jessica, what glowing energy!), Christie (high beautiful vibe), Lita, Mari, Marilou, Zee, Rogie, Lester, George, Mila! Thank you for having us! I will come back to stay with you, no other hotel in Honolulu.

Absolutely my favorite boutique hotel. Check-in to check-out could not have gone better Room are huge, we had a small ocean view and great view of Diamond Head. Parking is included so of course we rented a Jeep! Checked out beach chairs and beach towels headed to the North Shore for Ted’s breakfast- best breakfast on the island. We got the omelet- it is like a breakfast lasagna( plenty of food for 3), pastry items for later Went to beach on North Shore watched the surfers Drinks next door on outdoor patio Brian in restaurant was fabulous Enjoyed our 2 complimentary glasses of wine every evening Great breakfast at barefoot beach cafe very close to hotel Christieann, Sarah and Brian were fabulous This was not our first trip to The Lotus and hopefully won’t be our last Recommend Giovanni’s shrimp truck north shore and local eatery Diamond Head Market and Grill Great 48 hour trip to the Lotus

The location was spectacular. Right at the end of busy Waikiki beach but yet close enough to walk to. Fewer crowds and noise. I would recommend the top floor as the view of the ocean, the park and Diamond Head is fantastic. The hospitality is top notch, specifically Christieann who was always happy and greeting you by your first names with a very hearty Aloha. Zee was also extremely helpful and personable. The hotel offers free bikes and you have two quiet beaches to choose from. The one beach is great for snorkeling.

Aloha! Where to begin?! Mahalo, Lotus! What an amazing time my family and I relished in! Our trip began with the most pleasant call with ChristyAnn! She happened to be my Aunts favorite as she remembered her from a previous stay! The majority of our family stayed at another property. However, we wanted to go where fond memories were near! Zee, is as beautiful as she is sweet. Her hospitality was impeccable. I’ve been in the hospitality and service industry for over 15 years and have enjoyed much along my travels. She ranks in my top 10, globally! Melissa their Manager is top tier! She handled all seamless and with ease! Is that not what service is all about?! Angelica was lovely as well! Forgive me if I’ve left anyone out because all were amazing💫 The cleaning staff was great and so cheerful! We can’t wait to return and enjoy the infectious energy you all have! Someone curated an amazing staff. This is what travel is all about, is it not?! Mahalo! Simone

This small boutique hotel is a must! I always go for the smaller hotels because of the hospitality from the staff and this hotel wasn’t any different! Exceeded our expectations. Whatever we needed, they were willing to help from dining recommendations to hikes to additional supplies for the room. Shoutout to Angelica for a seamless check in and all her restaurants recommendations in waikiki and to Christieann for helping us not only throughout our entire stay but also before we got there. Her positive energy and excitement, made our trip that much more special. We weren’t just another guest but felt more than that. And special shout-out to Sarah who made us feel at home and showed us hidden spots around the island. Nothing bad to stay about any of the staff. Location was great for us as a couple because it was far enough from the downtown where it’s quiet but close enough to walk into town which we enjoyed every night. This was the perfect place for us to explore the island outside of Waikiki - hiking, beaches, restaurants. They provide you with everything you need for your stay including beach chairs, towels, bikes and even have the option to rent a car on site.

We had a room for 3 adults. The room was super clean and very well decorated. Illy coffe in the room was a plus.Our room lanai was facing diamond head and was over a garden terrace. Loved the location and the small quaint size of the hotel. What made the difference was the welcoming smile of Zee at the front desk. She was so helpful and gave us great tips on the location and food choices. Thank you Zee for making our stay memorable.

Best staff I have ever encountered❣️ Awesome room-cheery, clean and quiet👍 Perfect location for any visit to Oahu✨ You can stroll to the beach (with the chairs and towels provided by the Lotus), grab one of their bikes to ride to the parks, great location to hike Diamond Head, nice walk to the lively Waikiki hotel/restaurant/shopping district.
