Possibly the most exciting staycation we’ve had in Hawaii! Reason being, I was able to invite a friend to a staycation with fellow local bloggers which turned into a girls staycation at Sheraton Princess Kaiulani Hotel. The Sheraton team planned an exciting few days and this post will lay out what we did along with a review of the hotel.
Sheraton Princess Kaiulani Hotel is located in the heart of Waikiki with a great location, a plethora of outdoor activities and just steps away from the best dining and nightlife. Also, around the area are the sister hotels such as the Moana Surfrider, Sheraton, and Royal Hawaiian hotels.
Parking: Sheraton PK Hotel does not offer valet. However, they have a daily guest self-parking for $35.00 per day.
Day 1: checking in the sheraton pk hotel
We checked into the Tower Ocean Premier with breathtaking ocean views from our private balcony! As soon as we walked in, the first thing we noticed was the balcony with the gorgeous view, captivating us for a while. Sheraton Princess Kaiulani Hotel recently renovated their rooms: we had two double beds, a modern flat-screen TV with cable channels, mini refrigerator, desk, in-room safe, coffee/tea, and Shine spa products. The room was fairly large with an incredible view!
After getting settled in our room, we got ready and headed to our first activity on our itinerary which was a Progressive Cocktail Party. Here, we met the Sheraton team and fellow bloggers that we would be spending the next few days with. What better way to start our first night with some cocktails and a little icebreaker challenge! For our progressive cocktail party, we hopped to different restaurant + bars which started at Splash Bar (Sheraton Princess Kaiulani), Vintage 1901 (Moana Surfrider), Azure (Royal Hawaiian) and ended the night with a beautiful sunset at Edge (Sheraton Waikiki).
At the Splash Bar, we were able to decorate our own Mai Tai drinks! It was a great way to start the night and this was our first time meeting the rest of the group. Along with our Mai Tai drinks, we tasted a few appetizers from their bar menu.
Next, we headed over to Moana Surfrider hotel and tasted the Mangoes at the Moana cocktail at Vintage 1901. The li hing mui mango and coconut flakes were delicious! Also, our the mushroom truffle bites were incredible! I could eat those all night!
Next, we walked over to the Royal Hawaiian hotel where we wined and dined at the newly renovated, Azure. An upscale restaurant that serves local seafood.
Lastly, we ended our progressive cocktail party at the Edge of Waikiki located at the Sheraton Waikiki hotel. Here, we had a Moët Ice Experience and mixed up our own bowl of poke. What a great way to end the night!
DAY 2: POOL PARTY + DINNER
On the second day, we started off our morning with a breakfast buffet at Pikake Terrace in our hotel; an outdoor dining next to the garden and pool area. The buffet offered an array of food items from Hawaiian dishes to local island favorites. Having breakfast here was the perfect way to start the day!
After a great hearty meal, we headed over to Sheraton Waikiki for a fun pool party with everyone! We had pupus (appetizers) and drinks at Rum Fire in one of the cabanas. For our fellow Kama’aina (Local/Hawaii residents), if you’re not staying at Sheraton Waikiki hotel, you are able to rent one of the cabanas by spending $400 minimum on food and beverage. They allow 8 people maximum in the cabana which breaks it down to only $50 per person. Along with renting a cabana, you have access to the best infinity pool in Waikiki. It’s also the best spot to watch the sunset while relaxing in the pool with your pineapple mai tai!
In the evening, we changed into our night attire and had dinner at the Beach House, located at the Moana Surfrider hotel. The Beach House is an upscale surf ‘n’ turf restaurant with ocean views. We absolutely loved the veranda setting with superb food! We can’t wait to come back here for their afternoon tea!
DAY 3: SPA DAY
On our last morning, we had a full breakfast from Pikake Terrace and prepared for a rejuvenating day: SPA DAY! We had a girls spa day at Moana Lani Spa, inside the beautiful Moana Surfrider hotel. Our services included massages, microdermabrasion, foot scrubs, and eyelash applications at one their spa suite! It was such an amazing (and much needed) experience.
After our spa, we decided to check out other amenities of the hotel and lounge by the pool before checking out. Honestly, we didn’t want the staycation to end. It’s been an incredible time with the girls and the PR team! Needless to say, we’ll definitely be back and will be staying at the other sister hotels in the near future.
If you’re visiting the island of Oahu, check out the Sheraton Princess Kaiulani hotel! Very convenient as it’s a few steps away from the beach, restaurants, shopping, and nightlife in Waikiki. Also, a special discount to our fellow Kama’aina, visit here for your next staycation!
