We strongly advise against driving to Hawaii, as the ocean is unlikely to be frozen in November. However, we do recommend getting a rental car for your stay as most places are easier to access by car, and the drive along the water along the windward side is really something else. Uber is also an option to get around Waikiki, so you don't have worry about driving the night of the wedding.
The Kahala area is located about 5-15 minutes east of Waikiki, and is famous for its secluded beaches and celebrity sightings.
We have registered a wedding room block at The Kahala Hotel & Resort. There are 2 ways to book:
- Call the reservation number at 1-800-367-2525
- Email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Let them know you are booking your room under the Lucia Liu & Eric Lau Wedding Room Block. Reservations are due October 18, 2017.
You may also want to check AirBnB for apartments or houses in the Kahala area!
Waikiki is the beach front neighborhood along the southern shore of Oahu, and is home to most of the city . It is a 5-15 minute drive to The Kahala from the strip, so any hotel in Waikiki is a quick Uber ride away from the action for our wedding day.
We stayed at The Modern Honolulu last year when we were in Hawaii, and we both loved our time there. It is a great option if you're looking for a hip hotel that's in Waikiki. There is also a parking around the hotel in the Ala Wai Marina which has very affordable parking.
There are also plenty of AirBnB options in Waikiki, either apartments, or entire houses.
If you do rent a car, booking through our room block at the Kahala will include free valet parking. Otherwise, do ask about parking when booking accommodations. Hotels in Waikiki typically charge between $25-40/day for valet parking, but there are also public overnight parking garages around the Waikiki area that may save you a bunch of money, so do your research beforehand.
Things to Do
We recommend Unreal Hawaii for hikers and outdoor enthusiasts on Oahu. If you’re new to hiking on Oahu, check out the Beginner’s Guide to Hiking Oahu.
Olukai is another great site to explore the best hikes in Hawaii.
Hanauma Bay is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Hawaii, welcoming an average of 3,000 visitors every day. The sheltered bay on the southeast shore of Oahu is home to a large population of coral, and it has long been a favorite spot for tourists and locals alike.
