Plan a Visit to SALT At Our Kaka’ako
The vibrant Honolulu neighborhood of Kaka’ako has become a must-visit tourist destination thanks to its growing art scene, creative restaurants, and lively nightlife. By merely taking a stroll down Ala Moana Boulevard, you’ll notice the street art murals and an array of dining options around every corner immediately. This trend-setting neighborhood prides itself on being unique and artistic. Whether you’re searching for a cold craft brew, morning latte, or Hawaiian-inspired entree, Kaka’ako is the best bet in Honolulu. In the heart of Kaka’ako is an exceptionally-distinct collection of shops and boutiques filled with local culture, unique cuisine, and exciting events. SALT at Our Kaka’ako is a worthy alternative to the massive Ala Moana Center, the world’s largest open-air shopping mall. SALT is a popular hangout for couples, families, and groups because it features many of the best Kaka’ako restaurants. Our knowledgeable concierge routinely suggests SALT to our guests because Prince Waikiki is only a brief two-mile rental car ride on Ala Moana Boulevard from this 85,000-square-foot shopping center.
Unique Kaka’ako Restaurants
There are dozens of eateries to choose from inside SALT, but a handful of standouts are bound to satisfy your taste buds. A new island-influenced seafood restaurant just opened up on Coral Street: FISH Honolulu. Local artist Jeff Gress painted a giant ocean-floor mural inside FISH. The mural reflects the restaurant’s title, menu, and street. Their white miso salmon, Kona lobster, and steamed snapper are to-die-for. J’s BBQ and Grill, a local staple for years, moved into SALT earlier this year. J’s has simplistic dinnerware, affordable prices, and Korean recipes that have been passed down through generations. Try their crispy meat jun or smoky BBQ chicken – you will not be disappointed! Moku Kitchen provides classic American cuisine, an extensive craft beer list, and a wine room filled with hundreds of ready-to-pour wine bottles. This popular joint is known for their Moku craft cocktails and Executive Chef Peter Merriman’s nightly seafood special.
SALT recently earned the 2018 Shopping Center of the Year award from the International Council of Shopping Centers. This beautiful complex, which is named after the salt ponds that once populated Kaka’ako’s wetlands, covers an entire city block. Many tourists visit SALT because of the award-winning Kaka’ako restaurants, but you’ll undoubtedly feel compelled to spend an hour or two inside some of the area’s best boutiques. The Ukulele Site crafts some of the world’s best instruments, Hungry Ear Records has the largest vinyl selection in Oahu, and Paiko crafts stunning floral arrangements. You’ll also find surf apparel, beachwear, traditional Hawaiian attire, and even a vintage photography shop.
Luxury Hotels in Honolulu
When you’re finished posing in front of street murals, tasting the area’s best cuisine, and shopping for rare brands, head back to Prince Waikiki for a cabana cocktail, elegant dinner, and sunset hors-d’oeuvres. Ask our friendly concierge about the best Honolulu nightlife hotspots. Prince Waikiki remains one of the best hotels on Oahu for couples thanks to our romantic packages which include luxurious ocean-view guest rooms, a convertible Enterprise rental car, a $100 dinner voucher, and much more. Dial 1-855-622-7558 to book an overdue vacation to the most beautiful island on Earth.
