Overlooking the ocean on the eastern edge of Waikiki, Diamond Head Beach Hotel opens the door to paradise. This affordable property offers a location within the prestigious Gold Coast neighborhood, an elite waterfront enclave of boutique hotels, condos and private clubs framed by expansive parkland and the iconic Diamond Head Crater. Pocket-sized golden-sand beaches, popular with Honolulu’s fashionable set, dot its dramatic coastline.
Fourteen stories tall with a unique tapering design, Diamond Head Beach Hotel features sweeping panoramic views of the ocean, park, Diamond Head and Waikiki. As a leasehold condo/hotel, it is also the only Gold Coast building that allows owners to offer their units through a hotel rental pool, or as vacation rentals for less than the standard 30 days, making it easier for owners to accrue revenue.
Built in 1969, Diamond Head Beach Hotel houses 62 mostly studio and one-bedroom units that range in size from approximately 300 to 1,450 square feet, with balconies. Building amenities include a front desk, 24-hour manned security, a community laundry, and an oceanfront lounging deck and garden. Small pets may be permitted.
