The FIRST Hotel in Hawaii – The Moana Surfrider – Info & Insights

The first Hotel in Hawaii was the Moana Surfrider. It was built in 1901 and it is, hands down, the Hotel with the most beautiful architecture in Hawaii. Check out the video for a quick impression of this amazing hotel.

The Location

Hawaii has more than 250 Hotels. The Moana Surfrider was the first Hotel to be built in Hawaii. It was finished in 1901. We believe it is fair to say, that everything tourism related in Waikiki, was built around the Hotel. The Hotel is about a 30 minute drive from Honolulu International Airport. From the Hotel it will take you about 30-40 minutes to get to Pearl Harbor. If you like to visit Pearl Harbor, make sure to check the rates for Daniels Hawaii private tours. Daniels Hawaii is a local tour operator for luxury private and semi-private tours.

From the Hotel bar or restaurants it is only a few steps on to the warm sand of Waikiki beach. Take a few steps more and you can enjoy the beautiful pacific ocean. The waters of Waikiki are famous for their surf. Anybody can take a surf lesson here from one of the experienced beach boys and learn how to surf.

The Hotel

The Hotel was sold to the Sheraton Company in 1959. Sheraton sold the Moana and the SurfRider to Japanese industrialist Kenji Osano and his Kyo-Ya Company in 1963, though Sheraton continued to manage them.

The Hotel has 793 rooms, including 46 suites. The Hotel has a freshwater swimming pool, three restaurants, a beach bar and a poolside snack bar. Enjoy a drink while watching the sunset from the pool bar, under the big Banyan Tree.
