The 112-room Surfjack Hotel channels 1960’s Hawaii, with vintage upholstery on the headboards, reed ceilings, and midcentury modern furnishings. The onsite Swim Club, with its outdoor pool bar, hosts music events and movie nights. Don’t miss a meal at Mahina & Sun from celebrated Honolulu-born chef Ed Kenney, whose menu showcases island cuisine and ingredients, or a trip to the Olive & Oliver boutique, whose clothing and accessories line are inspired by Hawaiian culture.
Hawaii’s freewheeling ‘60s surfer vibe lives on at the Surfjack, a new boutique hotel in Waikiki. Guests get to revel in that spirit and heritage, thanks to historical touches like mid-century-inspired, handcrafted coffee tables and artwork from locals. Surfjack’s collaborators include Michele Jaime (for the interiors), Wooden Wave, Matthew Tapia, and other artists affiliated with Lana Lane Studios. The swim club puts a new-school twist on the old-school dive bar and hosts poolside films and talk story sessions with visiting artists, musicians, filmmakers and chefs. Whimsical typography on the pool’s floor reads: Wish you were here! Our feelings precisely.
