A good resort always keeps guests coming back for more. A great resort makes them never want to leave. But the best resorts are never afraid to shake things up and reward longtime visitors with new experiences and amenities. The Waikiki Beach Marriott Resort and Spa recently reminded Hawaii and the rest of the world why it has cemented a place at the top of travelers’ wish lists as it unveiled the results of a stunning transformation.

Guests returning to their favorite Waikiki playground will be over-the-moon for the new-look rooms, creative concepts and activities, and especially the centerpiece of the project: the Queensbreak pool and amenity deck.

Named for the world-famous Queens Beach and break visited by surfers from all over the world, this new pool area is an attraction unto itself. Designed to cater to a variety of travelers, Queensbreak will keep families entertained with daily activities at the kid-friendly section, which boasts poolside games and a splash pad, while couples and guests who prefer an adults-only vibe will appreciate the section featuring a pool with private cabanas, poolside bar, and oversized hot tub.


In between these areas is an open-air restaurant with a stage for live entertainment and a full menu featuring locally sourced dishes and cocktails.

While some resorts have been slowly rolling out renovations across their properties, every guest room and suite in Waikiki Beach Marriott’s two towers has been renovated to reflect a modern spin on local culture. The suites are especially magnificent, between their Waikiki Beach Boys-inspired décor and the breathtaking views from the balconies.

From the food to the rooms, the focus of this renovation was celebrating and honoring local culture. The interior design includes simple touches like local art and painted woodwork that create a sensation of the beach and pool blending seamlessly into the accommodations.

The key to keeping a weeklong Hawaiian vacation exciting is diversity, and that’s always the case with food. This resort already offers four dining options that will keep picky eaters (cough, kids, cough) pleased from meal to meal, and the addition of the Queensbreak restaurant means no more arguing about leaving the pool to find a quick snack.

Not every waking moment can be spent at the pool—although many travelers will try their best—and as exciting as Queensbreak is on its own, the experience is made even better by the activities and experiences offered throughout the property. Kids and parents will love taking hula lessons and learning to make leis, while fitness buffs can kick each day off with yoga and Pilates.

More adventurous guests can even sign up for surf lessons and canoe excursions before ultimately returning to the pool for a cozy evening by the fire pits.
