Ahupuaa is a traditional Hawaiian system of land division from mauka (mountains) to makai (ocean). It represents much more than that, though. Ahupuaa is a way of life that represents sustainability and the harmonious nature of relationships.

There are three levels within an ahupuaa: mauka (mountains), kula (plains), and makai (ocean). Each holds a unique ecosystem of plants and animals, as well as a community, that work together and depend on one another as water flows from the mountaintop, through the plains, and into the ocean. This way, the fisherman can give to the farmer, and the farmer can give to the fisherman. When we do our part to malama (care for) the land and each other, the land cares for us in return.


It’s one thing to visit a place. But it’s another to make that place better upon leaving.

For the 6th year running, LUXlife is delighted to announce the winners of their annual Resorts and Retreats Awards 2021.

As many borders begin to open and tourists begin to return to their favorite retreats, LUXlife Magazine felt it was the perfect time to once again recognize the businesses and enterprises responsible for providing consumers with the rest, relaxation and truly memorable getaways needed as part of a balanced and healthy life.

Darmic was voted Best Family Owned Vacation Rental Accommodation in Hawaii – an award gratefully received after a difficult year for the tourism industry.

To find out more about these prestigious awards, and the dedicated establishments that have been selected for them, please visit https://www.lux-review.com/issues/resorts-and-retreats-awards-2021/ where you can view the event supplement and full winners list

(Darmic’s supplement is listed on page 30).



All floors of the Waikiki Banyan (except the 6th floor) have a laundry room for guests to use.

Washing machines and dryers are coin-operated – however now you can also download an easy-to-use payment App (PayRange) on your phone.  This is available for free on IOS (Apple Store) and Android (Google Play).

Once the App is installed, simply add funds (using a variety of payment methods) and you are ready to go.

We would recommend that our guests download and set this up before their trip to Hawaii.

UPDATE – SEPTEMBER 13TH 2021 –  The Waikiki Banyan Recreation Deck currently has maintenance work in-progress.  At the time of this notice, the swimming pool, hot tubs/spas, barbeques  and playground are not affected and are operating (following COVID-19 protocols).  The tennis/pickleball/basketball court is not operational at this time (as there are no nets or fences) – however the area is able to be used for other recreational/exercise activities.

Proposed Rec Deck – August 2021


UPDATE – JULY 25TH 2021 – Spalling work is now complete, thank you to everyone for your patience during this time.     Please note that there are currently no base boards (skirtings) in the Waikiki Banyan main hallways  – as new carpet is being installed later in the year.

UPDATE – APRIL 1ST 2021 :     The Drain/Vent Line Project is now complete.   There is still some spalling work being conducted around the perimeter of the garage (levels 1-5) – until May 2021 – which may have affects such as dust and noise in some suites/floors.

We are sorry for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your patience.


This new site is bigger and brighter, easier to navigate and now features a Specials page and Testimonials.   A Frequently Asked Questions page is also included which has been compiled over the years from your most commonly asked questions.

Each of our accommodation options are showcased with larger images of the suites and more details on amenities and rates.

Plus we have added an Enhance Your Stay section – where we will be introducing our recommendations for Activities, Dining and Shopping on Oahu.
Keep an eye out here for special deals and promotions in the future… exclusively for our Darmic guests.


UPDATE:  All suites in Tower 2 are likely to be affected by water shut-offs over March and April  – from Monday to Friday from 7.00am to 4.00pm.   There is also some spalling work around the perimeter of the parking garage (floors 1-5) which may cause some noise disruption in some suites/floors.

We are therefore offering a 20% discount on the advertised room rates for suites in Tower 2 (only) over March and April (not including taxes and fees).
We are sorry for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your patience.

Please be aware that effective September 28, 2020 the Waikiki Banyan has two large maintenance projects underway.

Refer to the Waikiki Banyan website and click on the icons for SPALL PROJECT and DRAIN/VENT LINE PROJECT for more information and schedules.  Both projects are scheduled between September 2020 and April 2021, with affects such as dust, noise, water shut offs and other reduced amenities possible at various times.

The island of Oahu has its own set of rules and regulations relating to COVID-19.  For the most up-to-date information, please click on this link and familiarise yourself with the current restrictions in place: www.oneoahu.org

Under the Honolulu Re-opening Strategy you will find information about the framework currently in place for reducing the spread of Covid-19 and the four tiers.  The latest information for travellers to Hawaii can be found here: hawaiicovid19.com/travel including information on pre-arrival COVID-19 testing and quarantine.

Our guests safety is our top priority – and both Darmic and the Waikiki Banyan are following all applicable city, state and federal statutory and regulatory requirements – as well as offering contact-less check-in (and check-out) and full sanitising cleans between bookings.
