Para Para Paradise!!! The Modern Hotel is my absolute favorite destination on Oahu! I visit the island every year, usually twice a year, because my family lives there. This past Christmas, my good friend Jade took me for lunch and drinks by the pool at the hotel, and I instantly fell in love. I knew I had to stay there during my next visit so when planning this past trip, I made sure to make reservations ahead of time.
The rooms and grounds could not be more aesthetically pleasing. Completely my style…all white with a modern, yet beachy vibe, with orchids and ferns lining the walls and table tops. My absolute favorite part about this hotel is the double decker pool situation! On the second level, there’s an adult pool that’s quiet and serene, tucked back into a paradise of palms and lounge chairs. Downstairs, there’s a larger pool overlooking the marina with cabanas and poolside restaurant. The view from my room was not too shabby either! The balconies overlook the marina as well, lending themselves to the perfect sunrise and sunset shots! As I told you about a few posts back, The Modern houses renowned sushi and Japanese/American fusion restaurant, Morimoto! Our 5 course dinner was definitely one of the highlights of our stay!The Modern is also only minutes away from Waikiki Beach! I love that it’s not right on the beach in all the madness, but close enough so that you don’t miss out on the action! Lusting for a getaway? Start here!
