Hilton Hawaiian Village: Sharing Luxury With Friends

Discover how one Owner maximizes the flexibility of her Hilton Grand Vacations timeshare

One of our favorite benefits of timeshare with Hilton Grand Vacations is sharing our holidays with friends at amazing locations.

We split the cost of our maintenance fees, and our friends enjoy a luxury holiday at a very minimal price.

We recently traveled to Hawaii with some friends who had never been before and their two kids (four and six years old). We booked a 2-bedroom plus for them and a 1-bedroom plus for us in Lagoon Tower at the Hilton Hawaiian Village.

When we first arrived, we were warmly welcomed at the dedicated Lagoon Tower check-in counter and were presented with beautiful shell leis for the girls and kukui nut leis for the boys.

Our second favorite benefit of vacation ownership with Hilton Grand Vacations is the service. The staff helped us with our luggage up to our rooms — and since we ended up on different floors because we chose to have a nicer view, the front counter gave us an extra key to easily move between floors.

Our 1-bedroom suite was freshly renovated, super clean and comfortable.

We had an amazing view of the marina next door (and the sunset!) with furniture on the lanai, making it a great spot to take in the view.

In addition to stunning views, it had a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom and the lounge area had a pull out bed.

The suite was roomy enough to easily accommodated four adults.

Surprise!

While we were unpacking, I got an exciting message from my friend who had arrived in her room. She could not believe how nice their suite was and wondered if they were in the wrong room.

We quickly finished what we were doing to go check out her space, and WOW! The 2-bedroom suites are spectacular. It was massive, with a master bedroom with a king-size bed and en suite and a second bedroom with singles for the kids. They were so excited to have their own TV in the bedroom to watch the Disney channel. 

The kitchen was large and fully stocked with an adjoining large dining table. This suite was also recently renovated and all of the furnishings and décor were gorgeous. We laughed at how amazing the space was, and we could not get over how lucky they were as the quality of the accommodations was totally unexpected.

The room was so nice and spacious that we spent quite a bit of time together having breakfast, afternoon breaks and take-out dinner.

We didn’t do any real cooking in the kitchen but had we wanted to; we could have easily made a full meal.

It was a great place to let the kids have some downtime without feeling like we were just sitting in a hotel room, and it made being together comfortable because there was space for all of us to lounge around.

It was also great to use the facilities at Hilton Hawaiian Village.

Months later, we still talk about how amazing that room was, especially because I could book it in Gold weeks, stretching my points and keeping the cost down.

As the name suggests, Lagoon Tower is located close to the Hilton Hawaiian Village lagoon and has views up and down Waikiki beach depending on which side of the tower you are on. It's an easy walk to the Ala Moana shopping center in one direction and the main shopping precinct of Waikiki in the other. There are lots of restaurants and stores within the Village, and every Friday night fireworks light the sky over the lagoon. 

The kids especially loved Hilton Hawaiian Village with so many swimming choices, a safe lagoon where they could try paddle boarding and snorkeling and lots of space to run around.

I recommend anyone traveling to Hawaii with family consider a 2- or 3-bedroom suite at Lagoon Tower. You won't regret it.
