Hokua Condo Tower - Luxury Condos In Honolulu

Hokua Tower Viewed From Street LevelHokua is a luxury condo tower in Honolulu that was completed in 2006. There are 248 luxury condo units in the tower, with 7 units per floor. Hokua was the first of its kind, offering luxury condos that overlook the Tennis courts at the Ala Moana Beach Park and the ocean just beyond. It also boasts a private third-floor recreation deck filled with amenities as well as two floors of commercial space. Kobayashi and MacNaughton Group collaborated in the development of this gorgeous luxury tower.

Hokua meaning in Hawaiian is “crest of the wave,” likely referencing how the design mimics a wave - with units at the ‘peak’ having gorgeous 180° ocean views. It was developed before stricter guidelines regarding protected view corridors came into play, meaning no other tower like it can be built again.

About Hokua Ala Moana

Hokue was the first luxury high-rise of its kind in Honolulu and was completed in early 2006. It is located in arguably one of the best condo tower locations, with a design that would likely not be allowed anymore due to updated development guidelines. The design of Hokua is wider than many other residential towers and runs parallel to the ocean, meaning most of the units within have views of the ocean and Ala Moana Beach Park.

Hokua was built as a collaboration between MacNaughton Group and Kobayashi Group.


Hokua is located on Ala Moana Boulevard, at the border of Kakaako and Ala Moana in Honolulu, Oahu. It sits across the street from the Ward Village shopping mall to the east, across the street from the Ala Moana Beach Park to the south, and a block away from the Ala Moana Center to the west. This tower has access to it all.

If you’re in a shopping mood instead, Hokua is located just one block away from the Ala Moana Shopping Center. As the largest open-air shopping center in the world, the Ala Moana Center is a unique experience that holds over 350 shops and restaurants. These range from boutiques, to department stores, to luxury brands and local shops. One of the more popular local options is Foodland Farms, Hawaii’s largest locally owned grocery store.

To the east are even more options for dining and shopping in Ward Village - a master-planned neighborhood designed from the ground up for pedestrian-accessibility.

Resident Lifestyle

Hokua is one of the first ultra-luxury condo towers of its kind and has remained a sought after building for residents who value the luxury lifestyle it provides. Everything from the spacious floor plans to the unobstructed ocean views and resort style amenities add to the top-notch lifestyle that residents expect at Hokua. Despite being completed in 2006, the building has been maintained to such a high degree that its amenities still beat out even some of the more recently built towers. Since all units are ocean facing, the views are among the best on Oahu, and residents will continue to enjoy these unobstructed views.

If you’re in the mood for sunbathing or playing in the golden sands, directly south of Hokua lies the Ala Moana Beach. This mile long stretch is a sanctuary from the rush of city life, just steps away from your front door. The accompanying Ala Moana Beach Park holds lush gardens, tennis courts, and other relaxing ways to enjoy the great outdoors. At the end of Ala Moana Beach is Magic Island, a man-made peninsula that’s a popular spot for picnics and other activities.

Services & Amenities

Hokua’s amenities are largely found on its third-floor recreation deck. It includes a tennis court, gym, guest suites, and more.
