Waking up to a view of Diamond Head from your balcony. Sipping a mai tai under the banyan tree by the ocean. Enjoying a relaxing lomilomi message in the hotel’s world-class spa.

That’s the kind of experience you can have at the grand Moana Surfrider, a Westin Resort & Spa, in the heart of Waikīkī. And it’s an experience you won’t soon want to forget.

Accents is the hotel’s signature boutique—and the perfect place to get gifts or souvenirs of your Hawaiʻi vacation. The 744-square-foot shop, located in the hotel lobby, features a wide selection of made-in-Hawaiʻi and Island-inspired gifts, from retro artwork by Oʻahu-based artist Nick Kuchar to colorful bags handcrafted by local designer Jana Lam.
