Don your grass skirt, and sashay on down to one of these hip hotels, bookable with Culture Trip, within a surfboard’s reach of this tiki-themed waterpark in Texas.
What’s your Shaka meter status? Find out with a trip to Hawaiian Falls the Colony. Not far from Dallas, this sweet splash center beats the Texas heat in an instant. Hang loose at the Kona Kooler lazy river, or take the Pineapple Plunge if you dare. Whichever you choose, the best hotels near Hawaiian Falls the Colony will be ready to dry you off with plush towels and cozy robes.
Your spouse might not understand why you packed your 3-wood, but the Westin does; the 18-hole Tom Fazio course isn’t going to play itself. Your golf club is not going to take up much space in your spacious deluxe room, and it’s not like you’re going to lug it down to the spa during your couples massage. But, if you did bring it with you to dinner at Beans and Barrel, you might as well take a detour to the Topgolf Swing Suite golf simulator at the hotel.
It’s almost impossible not to have a good time at Omni, located in the Star entertainment district and beside the Dallas Cowboys Headquarters. Its outdoor infinity pool overlooks the Star, allowing you to scope out dinner as you digest the delicious grown-up grilled cheese you had for lunch at the Neighborhood Services restaurant. Let the time get away from you? Snap out of it with a cup of Stance Coffee in your room as you catch a Cowboy’s game on your STAYCAST streaming TV.
Come hungry when you’re staying at the Sheraton Stonebriar Hotel. Lone Star State-sized plates of Texas classics are given a contemporary twist at the Emerson restaurant. Whether it’s huevos rancheros for breakfast or slow-cooked brisket for dinner, every meal will send you back to your room with a cowboy’s swagger. It’s probably best to sink like a stone into your queen bed, a trip to the pool might need to wait a few hours.
As it’s connected to the popular Legacy West, it’s not hard to have a night out enjoying shopping, dining and drinking at Renaissance Dallas. The hotel will make it difficult to leave, though. The rooftop pool, with its striking Texas sunsets and its strong tequila sunrises, is where you’ll want to spend your time. The Asian-Texas fusion food at OMA tastes like Zen-cowboy cuisine and pairs perfectly with a laid-back night in your Oriental-style luxury bath suite.
Do you want to make sure your pet has a pawsitively good time while you’re at Hawaiian Falls? Book a room at Hotel Indigo. It’ll roll out the red carpet for your pup and up to two of their pals. With three pooches in one room, it’s best to book a double queen room so you don’t have to share any pillows. After you close down Hawaiian Falls, grab a few leashes, and take the pups on a long walk at Frisco Central Park.
La Quinta Inn & Suites by Wyndham is less than 2mi (3.2km) from Hawaiian Falls, and, within those 2mi, you’ll find guaranteed boredom busters for your kids. It all starts at the hotel, where a heated indoor pool provides year-round fun. Start moving down the highway, and ample fast food options will satiate any picky stomach. Rain or shine, the cinema has a kid-friendly flick on the silver screen. By the time you hit Hawaiian Falls, the kids will be all tuckered out.
Home2 Suites by Hilton is a sweet place to stay if you’re a kid. The beds in the double queen suite are that perfect balance of firm and soft for prime jumping. The hot breakfast has unlimited syrup for waffles, and the outdoor pool is just begging for a cannonball. Sure, Hawaiian Falls may be an hour away, but KidZania and Crayola Experience are so close to the hotel that the kids will hardly have time to complain about the car ride.
