Surf, Sip, and Socialize during a Summer Getaway to Waikiki

With summer on the horizon, the allure of Hawaii is more magnetic than ever, amplified by the recent debut of numerous hotels and dining venues. In response to this heightened interest, Hawaiian Airlines is enhancing its connectivity, launching additional routes from Honolulu to Austin, Boston, and Las Vegas, alongside an uptick in the frequency of flights between Honolulu and Los Angeles. This surge in accessibility makes it an opportune time to explore the Aloha State’s unique charm. Hawaii’s summer season offers an exceptional experience, marked by its vibrant festivals, perfect beach weather, and the verdant beauty of its landscapes. The islands’ welcoming spirit, combined with their rich cultural heritage and natural wonders, make Hawaii an unparalleled summer destination. 

Romer Waikiki at the Ambassador is the most exciting NEW boutique hotel in the heart of Honolulu, perfect for those seeking a deeper connection when traveling. The eclectic property is both a platform and gateway to experience the art, culture, music, food and experiences that make the island unique. From off-the-beaten-path bike excursions and free surfboard rentals to a dedicated “Aloha Line” for personal advice and tips, Romer guests can expect more than just a great suntan.

Unlock the Island

Romer has partnered with dozens of local businesses around the island to offer exclusive perks, freebies and discounts. Picture this: a seamless curbside drop off by GoVibe rental cars for a day trip to Oahu’s legendary North Shore to snorkel and whale-watch with Ocean Outfitters Hawaii, followed by a round of drinks at the Chinatown neighborhood favorite The Lei Stand, or a complimentary surfboard rental courtesy of Beach Candy Waikiki, all unlocked with the room key. The hotel’s resident “Mayor of Block” is prepared to assist in curating the perfect Oahu itinerary for guests and share the boots-on-the-ground insider knowledge that only true neighborhood natives can provide.

Waikiki Swim & Social Club

Drenched in natural sunlight all day long, the third-floor pool deck serves vibes, all-day drinks, light bites and a laid-back ambiance that evokes the feeling of an easygoing neighborhood pool party. Guests enjoy face mists, sunglasses cleanings, cold towel cooldowns, sunscreen reminders, Polaroid cameras and more. The retro-modern design is vibrant and playful with striped cabanas, patterned umbrellas and colorful bean bags for lounging.
