Modern Love at The Modern Honolulu

We’ve said it before and we will say it again, we love hotels and Hawai’i!

The Modern Honolulu is part of our Hawai’ian Ohana, and a favourite haunt of ours. The vibe of this hotel is Mad Men-meets-Apple Store. It's irresistable to anyone with a penchant for designer hotels, a taste for minimalism and a need for great food (there's an Iron Chef!).

What we love? The view from the hotel’s rooftop (adults only) Sunset Pool where you can gaze endlessly at the tops of sails floating against the Pacific Ocean (recommended with a mojito in hand), The Study (the slick bar located in the hotel’s lobby behind a batman-esque book shelf) and Morimoto Waikiki (the delicious home of celebrity chef Masharu Morimoto).

The Modern features 353 rooms, including 30 suites and a penthouse (with one of the best views in town).

Mahalo us later!
