Waikele Premium Outlets

Accessible by car or shuttle, these stores are worth a special trip

The good news: You’ll find more than 50 luxury-brand stores in one place. The even better news: Prices are 25 percent to 65 percent off everything at every store, every day.

At sales throughout the year, you can save even more at shops such as Coach, DKNY, Kate Spade, Calvin Klein, Michael Kors, Polo Ralph Lauren, and Swarovski. These events include the Memorial Weekend Sidewalk Sale in May, Fourth of July Summer Sale, Fall Preview/Back to School Preview Sale (end of July or early August), Labor Day Sidewalk Sale in September, and After Thanksgiving Weekend Sale, which goes on from midnight on Thanksgiving Day through the following Sunday.

Recently renovated to the tune of $10 million, Waikele Premium Outlets now boasts an expanded food pavilion; two new buildings housing seven stores; and a courtyard with a new stage, landscaping, water feature, and concrete walkways. You can drive there from Waikiki in about 45 minutes or take a shuttle, which operates daily except Christmas Day between Waikele and major hotels.
