The Oldest Hotel In Hawaii Is Also One Of The Most Haunted Places You’ll Ever Sleep
There are countless incredible hotels and resorts found across the Hawaiian Islands — especially in Waikiki — but today we’re taking a look at Hawaii’s oldest hotel. The Moana Surfrider, which opened in 1901, was the first luxury property along Waikiki Beach, beating the Royal Hawaiian by more than 25 years. The historic hotel is often referred to as “The First Lady of Waikiki,” and while it is undoubtedly the embodiment of old Hawaiian elegance, it is also rumored to be haunted. So haunted, in fact, that it was featured in the Forbes article, “America’s 25 Most Haunted Hotels.”
