"Don't miss the hotel's signature Orchid pool that overlooks Waikiki Beach. Another great thing here at the Halekulani is the Sunday brunch, while it is costly, it is worth every penny."
The Halekulani Hotel is a luxurious beachfront hotel that is consistently ranked among the world’s best hotels. Built in the early 1900s, the Halekulani gradually grew from a modest home with a few island bungalows to a high-end resort catering to Hawaii’s wealthiest visitors. The name “Halekulani” translates to “House Befitting Heaven” in Hawaiian, and all aspects of the hotel from the luxurious accommodations to the blissful spa live up to the name’s lofty expectations.
All of the elegant nonsmoking guest rooms are decorated in a traditional and sophisticated style with a calming neutral color palette than enhances the natural beauty and serene nature of the islands. All accommodations from the traditional guest room to the Halekulani Suite (decorated by Vera Wang) feature large lanais, five-piece bathrooms with deep soaking tubs, marble vanities, 40” flat screen TVs, complimentary high speed internet access, and twice-daily maid service. Guests receive a welcome fruit and chocolate bowl upon arrival as well as a unique memento to remember their stay.
Dining at the Halekulani is a sought-after experience on the wish-list of vacationers from all over the world. Guests may choose to indulge in Neoclassic French cuisine at La Mer, an elegant AAA Five Diamond Restaurant, sip signature evening cocktails as the chic Lewer’s Lounge, or enjoy a traditional afternoon tea service on the Veranda. Visitors looking for a taste of true island entertainment can relax at House Without a Key, a popular indoor/outdoor restaurant with traditional Hawaiian music and hula dancing.
With its award-winning concierge, coveted beachside location, and stunning orchid mosaic pool, guests staying at the Halekulani Hotel can easily enjoy an unforgettable vacation without leaving the resort. Those looking to see a bit more of the island can visit Diamond Head State Monument, Iolani Palace, and many other historical attractions located within a few miles of Waikiki. Several high-end shopping destinations are within walking distance of the hotel, and a duty-free shopping center is located just a few blocks away on Kalakaua Avenue.
