The Modern Honolulu: A “Get Away” with Chic and Simple Vibes for the Sophisticated Traveler

In a word you could say I’m slightly obsessed with THE MODERN HONOLULU’s uber-stylish design, and I have no less than forty-two photographs to prove it, too.

From the crisp white furnishings, to the natural wood elements and orginal art, to the pops of happy color that remind you that yes, you are indeed in Honolulu, Hawaii, it’s no wonder that THE MODERN has been ranked at the top of several travel choice magazines. Greg and I were fortunate enough to spend the night there to celebrate our 12th wedding anniversary, and it did not disappoint!

Lunch by the pool. Yes please!

We started with a tour of the hotel, followed by a lovely lunch by the pool. #MoreOfThisLessOfOtherStuff

Sunrise Pool: Soft Tacos, oh so ono!

After lunch we went up to our magical suite. Umm…y’all, I could not get over the beautiful dream-come-true view we had of the marina. If you love boats and the ocean like I do, then do yourself a favor and get this room! I may have about 2.5 million photos of the marina stored on my laptop.
