10 Amazing Condo Pools in Honolulu

Honolulu is known for its beaches and amazing weather, but often much of its beauty is also hidden behind gates and fences, or high above ground away from view. Driving by, residents and visitors alike, have no way of seeing some of the amazing back yards and amenity decks. With thousands of pools around Oahu, let me show you ten of the most impressive condo pools in Honolulu.

1 | The Watermark Pool – Urban Paradise in Waikiki


Oh, where to begin with this one? It’s literally paradise in Waikiki. The Watermark has one of the most amazing pools in Honolulu. Located on the edge of Waikiki close to the Ala Wai Harbor, The Watermark sits on approximately 4 acres parcel of land in Waikiki, a huge space considering the density of the neighborhood, and compared to other Waikiki condos. The grounds a lush and welcoming once you step on to the property. The Watermark pool is beautifully incorporated in the landscaping and the feel of the property. With its beach entry design, it’s not only extremely welcoming, but also amazing to look at.

2 | Waiea Pool – Ocean View Luxury in Kakaako

Waiea Pool

The Waiea, or as it is officially referred to as 1118 Ala Moana, is home to some of the most luxurious condos in Honolulu. Located in the coveted Ward Village master plan of Kakaako, it not only impresses with its design but also with its amenities. The infinity edge pool overlooks Kewalo Harbor and the ocean. It is located on the west side of the building, which also ensures that it stays sunny most of the day. Since there is plenty of sunshine to go around in Hawaii, this means that the Waiea pool is a pretty relaxing place. As residents relax by the pool, they can also stop by the Howard Hughes bar, located on the amenities deck, to get a cold drink and meet up friends. The Waiea pool ranks high on the Honolulu top condo pools list, and will even impress those who have seen it all.

The surprisingly quiet, serene setting, and greenery that encompasses the development, will have anyone enjoying the pool area feeling like they are at a resort on a deserted island far, far away.  Hence the popularity of these amazing ultra luxury condos in Honolulu.
