The Ilikai is a landmark oceanfront high rise hotel and condominium at the western end of Waikiki in Honolulu, Hawai'i. When it opened in 1964, the Ilikai was the first luxury high rise hotel in Hawai'i. The building was designed by John Graham Jr, who also designed other building such as the Ala Moana Office building and the Seattle Space Needle. At the time of completion, Waikiki’s skyline started to change from a relatively sparse and flat landscape with an impressive, unique “Y” shaped building towering 26 stories tall. The Ilikai became well known outside of Honolulu residents for appearing prominently in the opening credits of the long running TV series Hawaii Five-O.
Today the Waikiki Marina Resort at the Ilikai, located within the Ilikai Hotel, holds 123 junior lanai style rooms with either city or partial ocean views. Situated 10 minutes walking distance from Ala Moana Shopping Center, Waikiki Marina Resort at the Ilikai offers guests the convenience of Waikiki, the proximity of Ala Moana Beach part and front row seat for the Friday night fireworks.
Waikiki Marina Resort at the Ilikai is adjacent to Waikiki Beach and 12 minutes' walk from Ala Moana State Recreation Area. It features a restaurant with international cuisine and suites with private balconies. An outdoor swimming pool is also provided for guests.
Waikiki Marina Resort provides each suite with full kitchen facilities. The suites are decorated in tropical design and include a seating area with a TV with cable channels.
