Our Oahu Oasis, Guest Blog by @AcheleneWong
Situated on the crossraods of Kaiulani and Kalakaua Avenues is the Sheraton Princess Kaiulani. This contemporary, Hawaiian-themed resort was our home away from home this past weekend.
Our room came with two full sized beds, all of the standard Sheraton amenities, and lets not forget the most stunning view of Waikiki Beach!
The next morning we enjoyed a hearty breakfast at Pikake Terrace, which offers daily breakfast and dinner bufetts. For more information about Pikake Terrace click here.
Breakfast: 6:00am – 11:00am
Dinner: 5:30pm – 9:00pm
From the comfort of our cabana we ordered tasty dishes and cocktails from Splash Bar. If not relaxing at a cabana or poolside you can enjoy a drink at their bar or dine-in their open-aired area. Click here for more information about the Splash Bar.
OFF THE MENU
THE PK PUPU PLATTER – $25
A generous sampling of our most popular items. Korean Chicken Wings, Kalua Pork Quesadilla, Steamed Edamame and Ahi Poke with Ogo. Perfect for sharing!
Just this dish alone was perfect! A surprising mix, but exactly what’s needed to keep you on your toes and your belly content!
PK CAESAR SALAD- $12
Hearts of Romaine, Hamakua Tomatoes, Parmesean Cheese, Grilled Crostini, Lemon Garlic Caesar Dressing
PK CHEESEBURGER – $19
8 oz beef patty topped with bacon, American and white cheddar cheeses, crisp onion, and fried egg on a toasted brioche bun.
So much flavor between the brioche buns!
KALUA PORK SLIDERS – $16
4 toasted Portuguese sweet rolls, smoked slow beraised pork, crunchy slaw and chipotle aioli.
I’m all for anything “smoked”!
CHI CHI – $11
A pina colada Hawaiian style Hawaii’s Own Organic Ocean Vodka mixed with a subtle blend of coconut, Hawaiian pineapple and other tropical fruit juices.
For $18 ($14 non-alcoholic) you can enjoy any beverage of your choice in a super duper cool looking pineapple!
On the morning of checkout, we decided to sleep in and enjoyed a full breakfast spread courtesy of the hotels in-room dining service. There’s nothing like sipping a refreshing mimosa and having breakfast from the comfort of our balcony overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
The Sheraton Princess Kaiulani blends classic “Old Hawaii” aesthetics with contemporary flair. The resort is situated within walking distance to all of the shopping and dining that Waikiki has to offer and is just steps away from the world famous Waikiki Beach and gentle rolling surf at Queens and Canoes surfing breaks. When compared to Princess Kaiulani’s neighboring hotels and resorts, room rates are very reasonable year round and the reosrt attracts both local kama’aina enjoying a “stay-cation” and visitors to the islands.
