* The Polynesian Resort at Walt Disney World is an entire vacation resort based on this stereotype: all of the buildings are modeled on massively oversized longhouses and various "Hawaiian" music is played (often ukelele tunes) throughout the resort. All of the hotel buildings are named after Pacific islands and chains like Hawaii, Tonga, and Tahiti. Guests entering the Great Ceremonial House (the main building) are often given a lei and a fire dancing/torch lighting ceremony is held every day just before evening. This is only the tip of the iceberg.

* ''TestDrive Unlimited''. In the first one it is the main venue, and it is fully explorable, with no invisible walls. In ''2'' is joined by the island of Ibiza.

* RoxyMusic had "Hula Kula" as the BSide to "Street Life." Arguably a case of ShownTheirWork as Phil Manzanera spent part of his childhood in Hawai'i.

Added DiffLines:

* A part of the MovieOfTheBook adaption of ''Film/EverythingEverything'' is set there for a while.
* ''Film/MikeAndDaveNeedWeddingDates'' is also set there because the movie's main plot, which is the wedding of the Stangle brothers' younger sister, happens there, including the ATV tour of the part of the island where ''Film/JurassicPark'' was filmed.

* ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' takes place in a Hawaii-inspired region Alola.
* ''TestDrive Unlimited''. In the first one it is the main venue, and it is fully explorable, with no invisible walls. In ''2'' is joined by the island of Ibiza.
* In ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'', if [[Disney/LiloAndStitch Stitch]] is summoned, Sora will be warped to Hawaii to be greeted by the little alien before returning to the world he was in before. This is quite amusing if triggered in a world with form change, as it will result in Sora standing in Hawaii in vampire garb or in grey armor with cyan TronLines.
* ''VideoGame/Persona5'' features a school trip to Hawaii for its main cast mid-way into the game. Interestingly, the characters complain about how mundane they find the whole experience, basically doing nothing out of their ordinary routines.

* ''Film/FlirtationWalk'' opens on Oahu, as an American soldier there is falling in love with a rich girl. They take a drive along the coast, and they just happen to run into a luau! Where several dozen native Hawaiians are singing and dancing with careful choreography!

Added DiffLines:

* The [[WhatCouldHaveBeen rejected]] movie ''Film/{{Beetlejuice}} Goes Hawaiian''. To which [[Creator/KevinSmith one particular person]] who was offered to do a rewrite answered "Didn't we really say all we needed to say with the first one, or must we go tropical?"
* ''[[Film/JackFrost1997 Jack Frost 2: Revenge of the Mutant Killer Snowman]]'' moves the titular killer snowman to Hawaii. Must be one hell of a sunscreen.

* A counterfactual novel by Creator/HarryTurtledove explores the (global) consequences of how UsefulNotes/WW2 would have panned out if the Japanese had followed through Pearl Harbor with a full-scale invasion and occupation of Hawaii. As well as altering the course of the wider war, occupation would not have been fun for American citizens of all ethnicities.
