A Gift of Rest, Relaxation, and Priceless Memories at Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort

Several years ago my husband and I decided to forgo gifts for special occasions, and instead experience things together (e.g. trips, activities, etc.).  So when it came time for my birthday/Mother's Day this year, a weekend Waikiki Staycation at Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort with the family was all that I needed!

I've been to the Outrigger Reef many times to dine, but this was the first time staying at the resort, and I was beyond excited to spend a weekend there to celebrate my birthday and Mother's Day.

After a very pleasant and informative check-in, I received our room keys and was ready to start our staycation.

We were generously hosted in two Diamond Head Ocean View Rooms.  One room included a King and Sofa Bed, the other room had two Double Beds.

The beds were super comfy, and I loved that there were so many pillows on each bed!

The island-inspired and plantation-style decor (loved the pineapple detail on the headboards!) was warm and inviting, and the rooms were quite spacious.

Each room had a coffee maker and complimentary coffee and tea, a refrigerator, desk, 32-inch LCD TV, and dresser.

My favorite feature of the rooms was the balcony with stunning views of Diamond Head and Waikiki Beach.


We also had a nice view of the pool.

We spent a lot of time on the balcony just soaking in the views, and we also spent a lot of time in the room too - napping, watching TV, and just relaxing.  That's what staycations are for, right?  

Well, we made sure not too spend too much time in the room relaxing, so we frequented the beach - to relax even more!

Outrigger Reef is located right on Waikiki Beach, so the beach is literally just steps away.
My kids loved going to the beach!
We were on the beach every day and night, whether it was to splash around, walk the shore, check out the views, or watch the Friday Night fireworks.

Not only is the Outrigger Reef ideally located, but it also has nightly entertainment at Kani Ka Pila Grille, great dining (check out my reviews for Ocean House Waikiki here and Shore Bird Restaurant & Beach Bar here), and a lot of complimentary services and amenities, such as free Wi-Fi, free Hawaiian cultural activities, and even a free vow renewal ceremony!

Ideally located - right on Waikiki Beach!
And did I mention the amazing views?


We staycationed during Mother's Day Weekend, and although there were a lot of people at the resort and restaurants, the crowds were not overwhelming, and I still felt completely rested and relaxed during our stay.

Service was great our entire stay throughout the hotel, including at the restaurants, which made our staycation even more enjoyable.

Thank you Outrigger Reef for providing the perfect location to celebrate my birthday/Mother's Day (and for the gift of wine, fruit, and cookies!).

Mahalo Outrigger Reef!
The time spent with my family splashing in the ocean, watching the fireworks, indulging in delicious food, relaxing on the beach, and simply being together are the experiences and moments that I will never forget!
