Ala Moana Condos
Ala Moana, Hawaiian for “”path to the sea””, is home to an expansive white sand beach, great swimming, smooth surf spots, and grassy picnic areas, all contained in the 76-acre Ala Moana Beach Park. West of Waikiki’s tourist hotspots and centered around Hawaii’s largest shopping mall, the Ala Moana Shopping Center, Ala Moana residents can enjoy both busy city life and laid back beach going. Nearby live music venues, including the Hawaiian Hut, featuring the world’s largest slam poetry open stage every 1st Thursday of the month, and Jazz Minds & Arts, showcasing top-tier jazz artists every night of the week, round out the comfortable, yet professional neighborhood.
Casual- to fine-dining can be found along Kapiolani Boulevard or throughout any of the various restaurants in the Ala Moana Shopping Center. Ala Moana condominiums with views of the Pacific Ocean and city skyline sit shoulder to shoulder right off Piikoi Street, while others tower above the Ala Wai Canal and its Harbor.
The luxurious Hokua Condominium provides innovative approaches in condo living with a dog park, enclosed barbeque cabanas, and a row of jacuzzis along the back of the building. Other innovations in the area include Nauru Tower’s modern-style cylindrical glass form, Hawaiki Tower’s 36 th floor winter garden space, and Moana Pacific Condo’s floor-to-ceiling windows spanning from wall-to-wall. The newly remodeled Ala Moana Hotel Condominium, Honolulu’s most popular hotel condo, offers all residents a fitness center, sauna, steam facilities, and a swimming pool with pool bar and cabanas.
With the condotel trend picking up in Hawaii because of the strong tourist industry, low interest rates, and expectations of room appreciation, the Ala Moana Hotel Condominium is an option for buyers interested in having a choice between managing the room themselves, or handing it over to on-site or off-site management.
