Are there any haunted hotels in Hawaii?
Yes! There are several haunted hotels in Hawaii, but the most fascinating is also one of Hawaii’s oldest hotels: the Moana Surfrider.

At the time, it was one of the most legendary murder mysteries.
What is the scariest haunted attraction in Hawaii?
The scariest haunted attraction in the Aloha State is Hawaii’s Plantation Village. Not only does this outdoor history museum transform into a terrifying Halloween attraction each October, but rumor has it that the village is legitimately haunted as well. The village tells the story of the island’s sugar cane workers and life on the plantation circa 1850 to 1950, as well as the history of immigration to Hawaii, but it is also haunted. Of the village’s 25 plantation houses, approximately half of them are legitimately haunted. The village is so haunted, it has been featured on Syfy, The Travel Channel, and Buzzfeed.
