Q & A With our friends at Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach...

What makes your property such a great LGBT destination?

Balanced between the idyllic beauty of the legendary Waikiki Beach and the dynamic city center, Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa is a vibrant destination combining relaxation and adventure with true Hawaiian hospitality. Experiences await in Waikiki’s lively LGBT-friendly scene. Enjoy a day surfing, swimming, hiking, shopping, eating fine delicacies, visiting cultural museums, or taking in a couple’s Lomi Lomi massage.  End the evening with a Gay Catamaran Cruise or visit to a nearby bar. Coming soon, Hyatt will host a new monthly LGBT night.

What are the top five reasons for gay travelers to visit?       

Reason #1 - The Beaches

“The island of Oahu has dozens of beaches.  Each one offers a unique Hawaiian experience.  Waikiki is favored for the beautiful blues and softer waves that are ideal for learning to surf or paddle board.”

Reason # 2 - Shopping

“Waikiki is a shopper’s paradise.  The area offers everything from high end luxury items to great souvenir and surf shops.  When you get tired you stop and eat at one of the many fine culinary gems of Oahu.  After a good rest, you are ready to start again.  Shopping is so popular we actually offer a Shopaholic’s Massage at the Na Ho’ola Spa.” 

Reason #2 - Mountains

“Green and majestic, Oahu offers some of the best hiking opportunities in the United States.  The Koolau Mountain range, waterfalls, even Diamond Head Crater are all just minutes from Waikiki.“

Reason # 4 - Spas

“If rest and relaxation are the goal, it is easily attainable at any of Oahu’s spas.  Na Ho’ola Spa, in the Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa, was the first resort spa in Waikiki.  It is steeped in tradition and offers some of the best Pohaku massages available in the world.”

Reason #5 - Culture

“The Hawaiian culture is absolutely beautiful.  We call the authentic hospitality found here the aloha spirit.  It is something that comes from deep within the soul.  At Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa we offer a weekly Aloha Friday event in the afternoon and we have two cultural practitioners on staff who will share all kinds of stories, lei making, and hula dancing with guests.”
