From the Hunger Games to Blue Crush, Oahu is, quite literally, like a movie. The colors are unbelievable, with lush greens pinpointing the deep, varied shades of blue of the vast ocean around. 

This little island in Hawaii has a whole lot to offer. From downtown Waikiki, full of bars, restaurants, and plenty of shops, to the quieter, rougher north, where stretches of beach welcome surfers with phenomenal waves. 

There are volcanic hikes, abundant sea life, culture to explore, and the most relaxing atmosphere all around. Oahu is not only epic, it’s the perfect place to have your next all-inclusive vacation. 

Here are the best all-inclusive resorts In Oahu, where you won’t have to worry about a thing. While you won’t find the traditional all-inclusive packages that cover everything from meals to activities, you can customize you’re experience and get quite close to it with the following list of places. 

Turtle Bay Resort

Turtle Bay Resort

On the north tip of Oahu, just outside of Punamano Unit James Campbell National Wildlife Refuge, and a stone’s throw from beaches like Keiki Beach and Turtle Beach sits the spectacular Turtle Bay Resort

The list of activities at this luxury resort is extensive. You can book horseback riding or head out on a kayak tour in hopes of spotting all sorts of diverse marine life. You can hop on a board for your first surf lesson or develop more advanced surfing skills. There are also painting classes, yoga classes, spa treatments, and loads more. It would be difficult to get bored at the Turtle Bay Resort. 

Turtle Bay Resort rooms

The accommodation options are as diverse as the activities offerings. The most exclusive stay is in an Ocean Bungalow where you can have an oceanfront infinity pool and a personal concierge. The Ocean Bungalows sleep up to six people, so they are an excellent option for a group of friends or a family stay. For a more affordable accommodation with as much access to the beauty and offerings of the space, you can book into a guest room in the main hotel. 

Regardless of what room or activities you choose, you’ll have a beautiful experience accompanied by attentive staff, access to eight dining and drinking options on the premises, and surrounded by the lush beauty that northern Oahu offers.

Turtle Bay Beach

They have a large parking lot where even the public can park in to access the open Turtle Bay Beach. It was a beautiful beach as seen above and one of our favorite places to swim in Oahu although we didn’t get to see any turtles this time.

Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort

Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort

This Hilton Hawaiian Village Resort is on the South shore of Oahu, on the edge of Honolulu, in the shadow of Diamond Head State Monument. The location is amazing and the views are stunning.

There are a whopping 18 places for food and drinks to choose from. You can get bowls of fresh fruit for breakfast at the Bali Oceanfront, popcorn shrimp by the pool for lunch at the Hau Tree Bar, dinner of a local seafood platter at Blue Water Shrimp & Seafood, and then finish with a Blue Hawaii cocktail at Lagoon Grill.

In between meals, head to the beach to hop in the water with some snorkeling equipment, or be a bit more adventurous and get into a helicopter to see the island from above or attend a luau. Like most traditional all-inclusive resorts, visitors don’t need to leave the premises for some fun. 

There are also ukulele lessons on offer, educational talks, hula lessons, lei making, and aerobics classes. Guests can enjoy daily live music at more than one of the restaurants and bars. And of course, you can book spa treatments or spend some time in the fully equipped fitness center. 

Accommodation options range from standard hotel rooms for two or the same with two separate beds if you’re traveling with friends or kids. It has everything, all the way up to the private Ali’i suites overlooking the water with spacious balconies.

Ala Moana Hotel 

Ala Moana Hotel Room

The Ala Moana Hotel is a luxury hotel right in the center of downtown Honolulu. If you arrive on a Friday or Saturday morning, you can listen to live entertainment in the lobby with a Hawaiian singer and a dancer.

The beds are beyond comfortable to the point where we didn’t feel any jet lag or have issues sleeping the first night we arrived. The Ala Moana Hotel has the Dada Salon and Spa on the third floor, where you can enjoy spa treatments, including facials and massages. It has a beautiful outdoor swimming pool with poolside cabanas.

Ala Moana Hotel Pool

One of the things we liked about staying at the Ala Moana Hotel was its close proximity to the Ala Moana Center. This huge shopping mall has an extensive food court that’s a great place to grab something quick or enjoy its fancier restaurants. It’s also a great place for shopping.

This luxury hotel had a large parking lot and when the lot is full, you can also park on the street. The only thing is that it’s not free and you need to pay based on the number of days you use it.

You also don’t need to leave the hotel to get anything to eat, with the Signature Prime Steak & Seafood restaurant all the way on the 36th floor when you’re in the mood for fine dining. There is also the Pint + Jigger bar and restaurant, which is found in the back of the lobby area. If you come into the hotel on a late night, you will hear the upbeat music and feel the energetic atmosphere radiating from it. 

Four Seasons Resort Oahu at Ko Olina

Four Seasons Resort Oahu

Travelers will find the Four Seasons Resort Oahu right near Ko Olina Lagoon on the west coast. With a beautifully appointed interior and a wonderfully maintained outdoor landscape, this resort is a great option for adult-only vacations.

Out of the sun, you can do things like Hawaiian flower crown making or a stargazing evening of astronomy. The resort also offers golf and excursions around the island. 

You can find the beautiful and relaxing Naupaka spa where professional therapists offer massage treatments as well as hair, nail, and skin services. This was one thing that caught Kami’s eye when we were in Oahu.

The Kahala Hotel & Resort

Kahala Resort

The Kahala Hotel & Resort is on southern Oahu, just east of Honolulu. It’s still close enough to easily access the city’s downtown but we still recommend you rent a car at the Honolulu Airport to make it easier to reach.

The beach resort is tucked behind Kahala Hilton Beach, where you can encounter stunningly clear water. The tranquil white sand beach location is perfect for a luxurious vacation. 

Starting out with food, the Kahala Hotel has five restaurants, all run by a Michelin-starred chef. At Arancino you can enjoy Italian cuisine like pizzas and pastas, or head outdoors for a casual meal at Plumeria Beach House. If you know ahead of time where you’d like to enjoy your meals, it’s best to book them with the staff to make sure you’re not disappointed and left without a table.

The Kahala also has a Spa & Wellness center where you can relax and bliss out. From traditional massages to face masks and soaks, there is a whole menu of services.

Some rooms come with separate beds, some look inland, while others look to the sea but both options make for fantastic sceneries. Outside on the premises, guests can find the pool and the ocean for swimming, snorkeling, or having a dolphin encounter. You can also always drive to the north shore for some of the best snorkeling opportunities in Oahu.

Halekulani Hotel

Halekulani Hotel

On the beach of Waikiki is the 5-star Halekulani Hotel. From the top-notch staff to the impeccably maintained grounds and pool to the beautifully appointed modern rooms, everything here is sure to impress. 

If you’re looking for a truly luxurious stay, check out the suites. The Orchid Suite and the Royal Suite both offer abundantly spacious rooms with two balconies and jaw-dropping views, spa-like tubs, and perfectly tranquil space.

There are four dining options on-site at the Halekulani Hotel that feature award-winning chefs. You can find a few Keiki menus (kid menus) and plenty of seafood, meat, and lots of fun cocktails. Try the Tasting Menu at Orchids or the Seafood Roll at House Without a Key, just to start with!

Aulani Resort

Disney Aluani

Along the southwest coast of Oahu, sitting just off of Ko Olina Lagoon 1 is Aulani, a Disney Hawaii Resort. The excellent service at Aulani is just the starting point for a great stay.

The accommodation offers include standard hotel rooms with varying view options, from a standard view to a full ocean view. You can also opt for a studio, villa, or suite where you’ll find a generous dining and living room space as well as a kitchen. This is all alongside a spacious bathroom and bedroom.

Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa

Hyatt Regency Wakiki Beach Resort

The Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa towers over Waikiki Bay, steps from the shops and dining in downtown Waikiki. Waikiki Beach is one of the most beautiful areas in Oahu.

Every room at this resort has a balcony offering exceptional views across the sparkling blue bay. Options include stunning suites with space for big families or simple and more affordable rates in normal hotel rooms.

With the crowds in Oahu, one of the best things about this hotel is that guests gain access to loungers on the beach, exclusively for guest use. Other amenities include a gym, a spa with a whole list of treatments, a swimming pool with private cabanas, and business facilities. 

There are three restaurants at the Waikiki Beach Resort, as well as an atrium full of shops where you can purchase even more options. Check out the nightly live music while you enjoy The Buffet or the poolside SWIM Restaurant and Bar.

Sheraton Waikiki

Marriott Sheraton Waikiki

On the west end of Waikiki Beach, huddled amongst restaurants and bars of the town, The Sheraton Waikiki offers location, views, and just an overall practically perfect stay. 

The pools are enough to get excited about. There is an amazing family pool which is itself a full on playground with an immense waterslide, and there’s the largest oceanfront infinity pool in North America, which is for guests 16 and over. 

This pool is the spot for a sunset, watching it drop below the water from this vantage point up in the sky is a special experience. In addition to the shared resort pools, there are poolside cabanas that can be rented for the day as well as whirlpool spas. 

The Sheraton Waikiki also offers a whole host of events and experiences like lei-making, stand-up paddle boarding, shuffleboard, live music, and yoga classes. Rooms include basic king hotel rooms all the way up to spacious suites. 

Then there’s the spa. At the Abhasa Spa, you can book amazing packages with massages and skin care routines. Spend a few hours with something like a honeymoon package for couples, or just treat yourself to hair care and facials. 

There are four dining options at the Sheraton Waikiki but loads more just steps away out the door. You can start your day with a continental breakfast at Kai Market while you stare out at the open ocean and finish your day off with the same views from RumFire.
