Waihonua is located between Ala Moana Mall and Ward Village.
Moana Pacific is in the popular Midtown Ala Moana area but is more affordable than many of the surrounding condominiums. The development includes two adjacent towers that are connected by one of the largest amenity decks in the city. Most of the condos feature ocean or mountain views, and the location is walkable to numerous Honolulu attractions. View condos for sale

Moana Pacific was developed in 2007 by KC Rainbow Development, a Hawaii-based company. The complex covers 4.56 acres of land and consists of two high-rise towers: the East Tower and the West Tower. These two towers are each 48 stories high and have identical floor plans. Since Moana Pacific is a bit older compared to some of the other complexes in the area, prices tend to be a bit lower (less than $1 million), but the amenities, floor plans, and views are on par with what I would expect in the popular Ala Moana area.
In total, Moana Pacific features 720 units ranging from 1-bedroom to 4-bedrooms in size (with a few larger units that combine the floor plans of two smaller units). Residents have ocean or mountain views they can enjoy from the floor-to-ceiling windows. Like many of the luxury complexes in Honolulu, these condos come with central air conditioning and energy efficient double-glazed windows. These windows also help with noise reduction, which is a true plus in any urban area!
Original units were equipped with ceramic tiled floors in the kitchen and bathroom areas (additional rooms in the homes are carpeted). Additionally, these units each include a subzero refrigerator with beautiful wood paneling. Every unit (including the smaller floor plans) has washer/dryer hook-ups and fire protection sprinklers. The 2, 3, and 4-bedroom homes come with lanais.
The two Moana Pacific towers have a variety of options in terms of condominium sizes and views. Each building has 48 floors. Residential units start on the 6th floor, as the lower floors are utilized for amenities and as commercial space (with some amenities also included on the 6th and 7th floors).
Aside from floors 6-7, most of the remaining residential floors have 9 units each. 6 of these units feature ocean views, while the remaining 3 offer mountain views. A typical residential floor at Moana Pacific includes 1, 2, and 3-bedroom units. There is generally only a single 1-bedroom unit per floor, and these units cover 701 square feet and have mountain views.
There are several different 2-bedroom configurations to choose from, and they make up 6 of the 9 units on each floor. The smallest of these floor plans is 923 square feet and features mountain views. The additional 2-bedroom plans are 1,105 and 1,113 square feet, respectively. These units also include space for a den and are all facing toward the ocean.
The two largest units on most of the residential floors are the 3-bedroom units, which are located at the corners of the building. These homes cover 1,206 square feet and face toward the mountains. One of the perks of choosing this type of unit is that these homes tend to receive plenty of natural light.
On Floors 46-47, you’ll find a layout that is like the rest of the building, except a few of the units are larger in size because they combine two of the smaller floor plans into a larger, single home. One of the two larger condos combines a 2-bedroom unit (with den) and a 3-bedroom unit for a total of 5-bedrooms across 2,310 square feet. The other combined unit joins two of the 2-bedroom floor plans (both of which include dens) for a total of 4 bedrooms across 2,208 square feet. Aside from these differences, the rest of the units on these floors are identical to most of the residential portions of the building.
Lastly, we have the penthouse floor plans, which are on the 48th floor. There are 3 penthouse floor plans in each building. Plan PH-1 is a 3-bedroom unit that faces toward the mountains and covers 3,573 square feet. PH-1R is the same floor plan on the opposite wing of the floor. PH-2 is located between the two adjacent plans. It is a 4-bedroom unit that is 3,481 square feet. Each bedroom in PH-2 includes an ocean view.
Moana Pacific offers great amenities to help enhance the lifestyle of the community. There are 8 building elevators to help you get to your floor as quickly as possible. Residents may have pets, but there are size restrictions, and the pets must be able to be carried when walking through community common areas. The buildings are very secure and include key fob entryways, video surveillance, and Enterphone services. Additionally, there are resident specialists available 24-hour per day for increased security.
In terms of amenities, the star of the show is the 6th floor recreation deck, which connects the two towers. This deck includes a gigantic lap pool, a kiddie pool, and a hot tub for enjoying some time outdoors. Additionally, there is a playground for the kids, several driving ranges, two tennis courts, and numerous BBQ areas. My favorite part of the deck is the two-story open-air fitness center (and there is one for each building!). Each building also includes its own movie theater and an additional room that can be reserved for parties.
Some of the other perks of living at Moana Pacific include free Wi-Fi access in the common areas, guest parking spaces, and quick access to retail on the lower floors of the building. Current commercial options include a wine bar, a high-end restaurant, a furniture store, and a coffee shop.
Living in the Midtown Ala Moana area is basically an amenity in itself, as there is always something to do in this highly walkable area. Moana Pacific residents are in walking distance of the Ala Moana Shopping Center and the Malls at Ward. You’ll also be a short walk away from the beautiful Ala Moana Beach Park. The community offers practical needs (such as grocery stores, restaurants, and clothing stores) but also includes plenty of recreational opportunities (including the mountains, the beach, restaurants, theaters, and more)!
Moana Pacific offers luxury condominium living for reasonable pricing, especially in comparison to other properties in the area. If you are looking for an investment property, please keep in mind that there is a 30-day minimum for rental units, so the community is not suited for short-term rentals. These homes originally sold out very quickly, and resales are not expected to remain on the market for long.
