Help us countdown the best places to cool down with a unique beverage while on vacation. And don't forget to snap a pic to make your social media followers jealous!
#5 Fresh, locally roasted brew at Big Wave Dave Coffee
At this café meets surf shop in the lobby of Embassy Suites Waikiki, you can perch yourself at the window (actually a roll-up garage door) with a cold brew or crafted latte to watch the world go by: surfers on the way to paddle out, shoppers peaking into the boutiques on Waikiki Beach Walk, and families herding their floaties to the shore.
#4 Tropical mimosas on your private lanai
When you book the Ocean Suite Deal, not only will you be dazzled by the stunning views of the Pacific, but your pout with thank you too with complimentary mimosas served-up Hawai‘i-style with tropical juice mixers. Just book at least three nights and you'll enjoy up to 30% off and no resort fee.
#3: Lava flow in a poolside cabana
Splash, dip and cool-off with an iconic frozen drink made with pineapple, coconut, and rum finished off with a strawberry swirl. Fun and flirty, this makes for a perfect companion to an afternoon in your private daybeds or cabanas available to rent on the Grand Lanai.
#2 One-of-a-kind beer at the bar
Beer lovers, rejoice! Made specifically for the Embassy Suites Waikiki, the Pakini Blonde Ale can only be found at the Pakini Bar, a poolside lounge where all the action is at. This local brew will quench your thirst after a salty day of surfing the breaks in Waikiki.
#1 Sunset drinks and snacks on the Grand Lanai
Toast to the end of a spectacular day in paradise at Embassy Suites Waikiki's nightly evening reception where guests imbibe on two complimentary drinks and light bites for the whole family. Watch the sun slip into the ocean while surrounded by the tropical landscaping and waterfall on the Grand Lanai.
