Exploring Lotus Honolulu at Diamond Head

This was my first time at Waikiki, and as a shopaholic I think it suited me well – super friendly people, amazing food and endless shopping opportunities that kinda made me go a bit crazy. And… given that I’m moving to London in six weeks… probably shouldn’t have bought so much stuff… ANYWAY!!!

My first hotel stop was at Lotus Honolulu at Diamond Head. After a big wedding in Kona, I was keen to find somewhere quiet and relaxing. Lotus has a private beach and amazing views of Diamond Head, so even though it was close to all that Honolulu has to offer, it had an island feel that I think a lot of the hotels closer to town struggle to conjure up.

The rooms have great views, there’s a free shuttle to the shops, bikes to hire and yoga & tai chi classes across at the park every morning.

If you’re looking for the best boutique luxury hotel in a serene setting, this is my pick! Check out the pics below to get a feel for what is on offer at Lotus Honolulu!

    Loving all your beautiful outfits and photos. The wedding sounded so lovely! London will be a big move and you’ll be shopping soooo much once you’re there. lol #sorrynotsorry for the warning. I mean, you’ll be able to fly or take train everywhere within a couple of hours and arrive somewhere else with more shopping and good food! Ummm, actually can you pack me with you? haha. I hope you’re having the most incredible time in Hawaii babe.

    All your resort looks are absolutely fab! I had to laugh about the shopping and the fact you’re moving to London in 6 weeks! Oh well, at least you can be certain you’re a true fashionista.

    I will definitely have to keep Lotus Honolulu in mind next time I travel. It sounds like it has the most amazing atmosphere, especially when you want to relax and just make the most of your surrounds.

    Good luck with the move too btw gorgeous.
