With a name that translates to “spouting waters” in Hawaiian, it’s no wonder Waikiki Beach is world-famous for its thriving surf culture and the healing waters of the pacific. Waikiki is one of Hawaii’s most popular destinations, and just one trip reveals why. Step off the beaten path and immerse yourself in the local charm of Kapahulu, the eclectic magic of Kaimuki, or the vibrant street art of Kaka’ako. Explore some of the best neighborhoods and hidden gems Honolulu has to offer, just a stone’s throw from Waikiki’s golden sands. At Hotel Renew, you’re in the center of it all.


Kaka’ako / 3.6 miles | 15 min by car | 45 min walk

The up-and-coming Kaka’ako art district has been named “Honolulu’s hippest neighborhood”, and an outing there will surely clarify how it earned that title. What used to be an industrial block of abandoned warehouses was transformed by local street artists, using the walls of Kaka’ako’s buildings as a canvas to create the open-air POW! WOW! Mural Art gallery. Stylish enterprises soon appeared, including the gourmet food stalls, urban retail stores, and juice bars of SALT at Our Kaka’ako.

Kapahulu / 1.1 miles | 5 min by car | 20 min walk

Small mom-and-pop Hawaiian shops sit nestled between restaurants on the vintage sidewalks of Kapahulu Avenue. After perusing impressive collections of aloha shirts at the antique shops, stop by Diamond Head Grill for delicious island confections, Uncle Bo’s for kalua pork and dumplings, Leonard’s Bakery for a warm malasada pastry, or - if it’s a Saturday - the Waikiki Specialty Farmers’ Market for fresh island produce.
