Hawaii has long been the getaway for those seeking to witness the superbly sublime–a type of natural beauty that startles the mind with its breathtaking profundity and serenity. With the soothing tumble of the Pacific’s rolling waves providing a marvelous score, Hawaii provides an outlet for experiences unlike anywhere else on the planet. Whether you’re looking to take in the warmth of the sun on one of the many picturesque beaches, challenge yourself to reach the peak of Oahu’s famous crater, or acquaint yourself with the dynamic and unique island culture by night, Hawaii boasts a little something for everyone–all of which will be remembered for a lifetime.
Nestled in the heart of city, seconds away from the ocean, and combining island tranquility with contemporary splendor, The Modern Hotel is surrounded with unmissable attractions. Kick up your feet in an unparalleled state of relaxation after seeing the best of what Oahu has to offer.
From the North Shore to Waikiki, the beaches of Hawaii offer varying degrees of surfing difficulty. From beginners to professionals, people travel from far and wide to experience the glistening blue of the island’s surf. If you’ve ever had a longing to give your inhibitions up to the majesty of a wave, there is no better place to try. You’ll never forget the feeling of standing up on your board for the first time as you coast back to the beach.
The clarity of Hawaii’s water allows you to see some of the creatures that call the island sea home when simply wading in the surf. However, if you’d like a closer look at the visually-arresting coral reefs, peppered with sea turtles and fish of all different colors and sizes, you’d be hard pressed to find an activity better suited to you than a snorkeling adventure. Strap on your mask, and dive in to a world of mystical beauty.
Immerse yourself in the luscious expanse of Oahu’s tropical rainforests on a hike you’ll remember forever. Enjoy the blissful silence of the jungle, broken only by the distant rumble of a hidden waterfall or the call of a bird as you work up a nice sweat. You never know what you may come across. You may just stumble upon an area you recognize from the hit show LOST.
Filled with restaurants, shops, nightclubs, bars, and other Oahu hotels worth exploring, you’ve got options when the sun goes down. Choose from a number of world class restaurants before dancing the night away or taking in a show. When it’s time to wind down, take a relaxing nighttime stroll along the sand with a refreshing cup of coconut ice cream.
Oahu is home to Diamond Head Crater, part of a larger series of Hawaii’s famous volcanoes. If you’d like to see the entirety of the crater, including the National Guard facility within, as well as the rest of the island with an unrestricted 360 degree view, you should consider taking a helicopter tour. You’ll be able to see for miles as you gaze out across the Pacific, and the views of Oahu are truly spectacular when seen from the air.
Regardless of your choice of activity, on Oahu, one thing is for certain–you’ll never feel at a loss for things to do. And when calling The Modern Honolulu home for the duration of your stay, you’re never far from the action. Come enjoy the Aloha spirit in Hawaii!
