Four Must Do Things When Visiting Waikiki

August 7, 2018

Planning your Hawaiian escape? Here’s a list of our top 4 MUST do items when visiting Waikiki:

ONE: Meet the Resident Ambassador of Aloha

When staying at the Sheraton Princess Kaiulani meeting Uncle Nate is a MUST. From lei making to hula to ukulele lessons and more, Uncle Nate is our resident ambassador of Aloha at the hotel and no stay is complete without making an introduction. Not only does Uncle Nate host all of our daily cultural activities for guests, but he’s always happy to just sit and chat about things to do in Waikiki or places to eat around town. Uncle Nate exemplifies the spirit for aloha and truly shares it with each and every person he meets.

If you’re planning a stay at the Sheraton Princess Kaiulani, make sure to check out our calendar of daily cultural activities for a chance to run into Uncle Nate during your stay!

TWO: Enjoy a Mai Tai by the Beach

Trying the world-famous Mai Tai is an absolute MUST when you visit The Royal Hawaiian, A Luxury Collection Resort!  In fact, did you know that the first Mai Tai ever created in Waikiki was right at this oceanfront bar?

The original Mai Tai was created by Trader Vic Bergeron in 1944, and then brought to the Mai Tai Bar in 1953. Today, the “Royal Mai Tai” remains the #1 best seller at the bar, with more than 96,000 Royal Mai Tais consumed by visitors each year.

In addition to the traditional Mai Tai, the bar also offers a total of 7 unique Mai Tai cocktail options. For those that prefer a non-alcoholic option – we got you covered! Order your favorite non-alcoholic refresher, and put it in a pineapple.

The bar is open daily from 10:30AM- 11PM.

THREE: Watch the Waikiki Sunset

Perhaps you’ve watched the sunset from Waikiki but have you ever watched the sunset while floating inside a pool at the edge of Waikiki?

When visiting Sheraton Waikiki, ending your day with a cocktail in hand, floating on a yellow beanbag and watching the magic of a Waikiki sunset is a MUST.


The award winning Edge Infinity Pool is the longest oceanfront Infinity Pool in North America. Order a drink from one of America’s Favorite Pool Bars, the Edge of Waikiki, without ever having to leave the comfort of the pool. Then sit back, relax and soak up the magic. Don’t forget to have your camera ready. The inside of the infinity pool, with Diamond Head and the sunset in the background, is the perfect photo opportunity that you won’t want to miss.

FOUR: Indulge in a Classic and Timeless Afternoon Tea Experience

Afternoon tea on the veranda is a timeless experience that you MUST experience when visiting the Moana Surfrider, A Westin Resort & Spa. The afternoon tea on the veranda is a delightful island tradition. Refresh your sense while ensconced in the elegance of classic Victorian architecture, shaded under the canopy of a historic banyan tree with the sound of ocean waves lapping aside you on the shores of Waikiki.



At afternoon tea, modern meets classic with an ageless ritual of presenting six locally crafted teas. Start your experience by selecting from our 6 tea selection: Moana Royale, Moana Sunset, Mango Mele, Veranda Breeze, Jasmine Phoenix Peals and Lemon Rooibos. Three tiers of perfection will be delivered to your table filled with savory sandwiches, scones and delectable sweets. Our tea will end on a sweet and refreshing note with a green tea sorbet.

For those not wanting afternoon tea enjoy breakfast and lunch on the veranda.
The veranda at the beachhouse is open daily from 11AM-2:30PM.
