If you’re travelling for business or are after the quickest route, taking a taxi is the most flexible and on-demand way to travel. There’s no need to stop at other hotels and resorts on the way as you’ll be taken directly to your accommodation. It’s also not essential to pre-book as taxis are readily available. There’s a taxi stand right outside the Honolulu Airport where you can wait with your bags, or you can arrange a taxi ahead of time which may be useful when it’s busier such as weekends or holidays. Many taxis offer a set price for the fare as it applies for hotel guests, so be sure to ask about this.

Airport Transfer

An Airport Transfer is especially helpful when travelling with a group or family and have a large quantity of luggage in tow. Booking in advance is recommended to ensure that your transfer is available when you need it. Simply contact one of the many companies offering this service ahead of time to book. The driver will keep an eye on your flight to ensure they arrive at the airport when you land. Any special requirements can also be looked after including car seats for young children. Be sure to give the company a call when you have picked up your luggage to ensure they are on their way.

Public Bus

Catching the public bus from Honolulu Airport to Ala Moana Hotel by Mantra will take just under an hour which may vary due to traffic conditions. It’s no doubt the most affordable means of transport which makes it ideal if you’re budget conscious and don't mind taking a little longer to arrive at your destination. Board the bus on the Airport Upper Level (Main Terminal Diamond Head) and it will take you along Ala Moana Boulevard to Atkinson Drive where the hotel is located. Luggage is limited to carry-on only when travelling on the bus, therefore if you have a large suitcase you are best to catch a taxi or shuttle to ensure you can bring everything onboard with you.


One of the most popular travel alternatives to taxis or shuttles is using an Uber. Not only is it hassle-free, it’s easy to use and affordable. Before you travel, jump on their website and calculate a fare estimate. You can also pre-book your Uber or ride on demand by using their app on your device. The payment is cashless making it a very quick and convenient mode of transport from Honolulu Airport to your hotel. Before you depart, be sure to download the free Uber App so that you can be matched with a nearby driver when you arrive who will take you to your hotel. You can identify the Uber vehicle as it will have an Uber decal on the rear driver windshield.
