If Hotel Molokai were any closer to the water, it would be considered a floating hotel. Literally steps from the Pacific Ocean, resting on the shores of Kamiloloa Beach, this Polynesian-styled hotel offers 57 air-conditioned rooms in Molokai, Hawaii.
Four ocean front rooms offer the best views, while standard rooms deliver the best value. Kitchenette rooms sleep up to four people – ideal for families or couples traveling together on vacation.
With Polynesian decor and shake roofs, the boutique Hotel Molokai is popular with locals and island visitors. Time your stay with a Friday night and you’ll experience Na kapuna – the elder’s jam poolside with guitar and ukulele. The singing and dancing takes place from 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
“We’re all about service,” says Hotel Molokai General Manager Michael Drew.
There is a $5.00 daily resort fee, but it includes internet, a computer kiosk in the lobby, free phone calls to anywhere in the United States, a light continental breakfast, movie lending library and the use of snorkel gear and beach towels. I liked the hammocks scattered about the property, the swimming pool and the Philosophy bathroom products.
My king ocean front room, #136, rented for $269. per night. Check the website for current pricing and special package deals for this authentic Hawaiian hotel.
Let manager Michael Drew buy you a drink on Monday evening at the hotel bar next to Kamiloloa Beach. For additional insider tips follow Northern California Travel Writer @Nancydbrown on Twitter and Hotel Molokai on Twitter @hotelmolokai.
