Hotel is not available to the general public. Only military or persons who have sponsor from the military May 08, 2012
The Hale Koa hotel was opened on October, 25 , 1975, which is actually owned by the Department of the Army and comes under the jurisdiction of IMCOM G9. The Hale Koa is truly a benefit for all military personnel to enjoy. Affordable prices 130 $ per night. 2 swimming pools. Location is great, just next door to Hilton Village and Waikiki, excellent beach access. The room was clean with flat screen TV, small fridge, coffee machine. Nice bathroom: clean towels, soaps, shampoos, body lotion. We stayed on the sevens floor in room 753. The room has a small balcony and great view to the ocean. Has one double and one single bed. No WiFi in the rooms, just in the lobby. In a room you can have a cabel Internet for extra payment. Comfortable parking place just across the street. Breakfast is not included. Around lots of bars and cafes.

This hotel is for people in, or retired from, or a family member of someone in the military, the Coast Guard, Commissioned Corps of the Public Health Service, or Commissioned Corps of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, or in the U.S. Department of Defense Civilians.

Hale Koa Hotel on Waikiki Beach for Military and Veterans Nov 15, 2009
The Hale Koa Hotel is the premiere military hotel in the world. If you are active duty or retired military, you can't beat the location on Waikiki Beach for this exclusive experience in the military. Most rooms have an ocean or partial ocean view and two double beds. All rooms have a balcony, refrigerator, TV, phone, and desk. The Hale Koa has several restaurants and bars to choose from, 2 pools (1 adult-friendly, 1 kid-friendly) and a luau garden separate from the wedding garden. There are a few shops for jewelry and flowers, and also a travel agent/activities desk for booking all types of adventures from a submarine tour to skydiving/para-sailing or travel to the other islands of Hawaii. The restaurants are top notch and the bar serves some of the best tropical drinks in Hawaii. There is a fairly large PX/BX with all your shopping needs, including Hawaii apparel and gifts, plus everything you may need for the beach or a picnic. The place is fairly secure so be sure to bring your ID card with you. The parking garage is only $7/day which is great for Waikiki. The luau and magic shows are a great experience, and the Sunday Buffet Brunch cannot be matched! There are military discounts for the beach cabana umbrella/chase lounge chair sets, surfboard rentals, lessons, and other water activities right on the beach directly adjacent to the hotel.

The most disappointing thing about our most recent stay (we've stayed at Hale Koa for over 5 weeks in a row when we moved to Hawaii in 1995 when the second tower opened, plus about 10 other times since then) was the beds are getting old and soft--not good for your back, especially after a L-O-N-G flight to get to Hawaii.

Still, this is the preferred place to stay for military members and family because it is so close to everything in Waikiki! Weather you are PCS or TDY/TAD or retired, be sure to book a stay at the Hale Koa Hotel and enjoy your time to relax and get away from it all!

Military Only Hotel in Hawaii Oct 13, 2008
The Hale Koa Hotel is located on Waikiki Beach and is open only to personnel affiliated with the United States Department of Defense. Active duty, reserve, and retired US Military, as well current Department of Defense civilians are authorized to stay here. BOOK EARLY!!!!!!! Getting a room at the Hale Koa Hotel can be difficult due to the popularity with the retired community. Though the age group tends to be a bit older than some other hotels the Hale Koa Hotel by no means lacks by way of hospitality and activities! There are several restaurants from casual to fine dining as well as a few little bars if you are looking for a relaxing drink. There are two swimming pools one for guests only and the other (bigger, better) pool is for military and family. The gym as many things to offer as well as the spa. During the week there is an outdoor dinner that changes throughout the week from a luau to dinner "musical". The Hale Koa Hotel also offers the military community stationed on the island the opportunity to use it's facilities as well is a great way to "entertain" visiting families. The rooms are very nice and also offer a wide range of views, accommodations, and prices (depending on military pay grade). If you are eligible to reserve a room at this hotel and find that there is availability when you want to visit Hawaii. I strongly suggest you check out this perk of military affiliation.

Hale Koa Hotel - The Most Beautiful Military Hotel in the World Jul 30, 1999
The Hale Koa Military Hotel is a gorgeous facility with an open-air reception area between two 14-story towers of rooms each with a balcony, right on Waikiki Beach on the Fort DeRussy Military Reservation in downtown Honolulu. This has to be the most expensive land in the world to have a military facility.

The rooms and views here are excellent. The food is good, There are plenty of activities, including a luau and magic show. there are two huge pools and the Barefoot Bar is right on the beachfront. Be sure to try the homemade "Koala Bear" invented by Ray the bartender.

There are tour and activities offices for everything from sightseeing cruises, to para-sailing, travel to the other islands on fly/drive packages, and the famous Polynesian Cultural Center.

Even the Fort DeRussy Military Museum of the Pacific is interesting and only a 2 minute walk. You are close to all the shops on Kalakaua Avenue, including the International Market Place. Many restaurants are located within walking distance if you prefer not to eat at any of the great restaurants already located in the Hale Koa like Bibas.

For nightlife, the Hale Koa has a lot of retirees staying there so you might have to go someplace else if you want a younger crowd. We recommend Duke's Canoe Club on Kalakaua Avenue across from the International Market Place and Waves also on Kalakaua Ave. The Barefoot Bar also has a DJ on weekend nights for dancing on the beachfront.

You won't believe this place is owned by the military and how close you are from the beach to your room!
