Fact Sheet

Experience the essence of old Waikiki without sacrificing the comfort and convenience of modern times. With exterior walk-up corridors with private entrances, a pool, courtyard and private lanais, White Sands Hotel is perfectly suited for those wanting space - and a throwback to simpler times.

Hotel Overview:

We’re taking you back to a golden bygone era cloaked in hazy memories. Here, at the last of the vintage walk-up hotels, you can connect with your own visions of Hawaii right in the middle of Waikiki. Built in 1957 and reimagined for today, our lush, tropical oasis invites you to drop in, tune out and embrace the Waikiki of yesteryear. The hotel’s 93 rooms and suites, exterior walk-up corridors and private lanais make it a vintage gem suited for contemporary island life. A central sparkling pool and lounge area, cafe and bar create a perfect urban oasis in a prime location just two and half blocks from Waikiki Beach.


White Sands Hotel offers 93 rooms and suites. Ranging from 316 to 480 square feet, all feature a private exterior entrance, private lanai, microwave, mini-fridge, portable stoves (upon request) and WiFi, and a unique blend of old-school style and contemporary comfort that embodies the inspiring spirit of Oahu.


     Heyday Pool Bar & Restaurant

    You won’t have to go far for delicious island coffee and an energizing meal any time of day. Heyday serves up freshly-squeezed juices, tropical Hawaiian fruit, baked goods, sandwiches and more. And whether you’re drinking the day away or ending the evening with a nightcap, our tropical Heyday Pool Bar incites a nostalgic excitement you’ll swear you haven’t felt in years.

    Green Lady Cocktail Room:

    Green Lady Cocktail Room is enthralling patrons through its inventive cocktails crafted by some of the country’s leading mixologists, steadily forging its path to prominence as one of the preeminent bars in the country. Ask for ‘Room 8,’ open the secret door concealed within a wall of bamboo, and transport back in time. Amidst the allure of secrecy that envelopes this hidden gem lies a spot of mixological brilliance and inventive artistry. 


    Just two and a half blocks from Waikiki Beach, our central location in Waikiki offers easy access to an array of popular attractions, such as the Honolulu Zoo and International Market Place. You’re also close to many of the hidden gems we favor — the secluded beaches, under-the-radar restaurants, and locally beloved landmarks that you won’t find on traditional tourist itineraries.
