HAWAII SUPER-SIZES A GRAND HOTEL

At almost 3,000 rooms, the Hilton Hawaiian Village Beach Resort & Spa is a village unto itself. Further discouraging you from leaving the Waikiki resort, its new Kalia Tower, the resort’s sixth, adds 453 guest rooms and a new mandate for a good map of the grounds. A 42,000-square-foot spa and health facilities section includes a branch of the Asian-luxe Mandara Spa, which provides 25 treatment rooms, exotic body services like the detoxifying green tea wrap, and a open-air gym for the aerobically inclined. The addition also houses a satellite branch of the prestigious Hawaiian culture-keeper Bishop Museum, which saves you the trip into Honolulu and the search for the compound exit. Rooms from $185.
