Surrender yourself to total luxury and unequaled splendor at Halekulani, the "House Befitting Heaven." You'll find everything you'd expect in a world-class hotel, and much more. All Halekulani rooms feature large lanais, designed to let you take full advantage of Hawaii's magnificent tropical climate. In July 2012, Halekulani completed the upgrades to all guestrooms and suites, reinvigorating the hotel's accommodations in harmony with its original, unique, and compelling design themes, all built around its legendary -seven shades of white- interior color palette, and capitalizing on the surrounding environs. The majority of rooms offer stunning views of the deep blue waters of the Pacific Ocean.

A heated 46-by-82 foot fresh water pool overlooking Waikiki Beach is one of Halekulani's most talked-about landmarks. On the bottom of the pool is a stunning mosaic of a Cattleya orchid, comprised of 1.2 million pieces of imported South African glass tiles. When you're ready to explore the beach, a concierge can arrange a wide range of outdoor activities. From outrigger canoe rides, surfing, and snorkeling to sailing and deep-sea fishing, all these exciting Hawaiian experiences await.

Award-winning chefs create one-of-a-kind dishes from Hawaii's freshest, most delectable ingredients. Each of Halekulani's three restaurants offers its own distinct style amid stunning views of the sea. Select from La Mer for luxurious fine dining, Orchids for casual elegance, or House Without A Key for a relaxed ambiance to enjoy the sunset.

Intertwining authentically crafted Polynesian therapeutic rituals with today's purest products and proven techniques, the award-winning Spa Halekulani professionals usher guests into an enveloping experience, like no other. Their commitment is to harmoniously restore their guest's mind, body, and soul with a respite that is spiritual, cultural, and emotional.

As you might expect from any world-class city, the Honolulu area offers a wide range of things to see and do. Explore museums that house ancient Hawaiian artifacts and Royal feather cloaks, in addition to Chinese treasures from the Ming Dynasty and original masterpieces by Van Gogh, Gauguin, and Warhol. Reflect on Hawaii's pivotal role in American history as you peruse the WWII archives at the Pearl Harbor Memorial. Best of all, Halekulani makes it incredibly easy to do it all. Halekulani's "For You, Everything" program invites hotel guests to enjoy many of Honolulu's top cultural offerings. Included in the program are the Honolulu Museum of Art, Bishop Museum, Iolani Palace, Hawaii Pops, Hawaii Symphony Orchestra, and Doris Duke's Shangri La. Tickets can be arranged through the concierge.

Stunning views of the sparkling Pacific and world-famous Diamond Head say you could only be in Hawaii. The impeccable service and unrivaled attention to detail say you could only be at Halekulani.

Fine for a regular hotel, but not five star
mangochunks, New York City, New York
Wed Oct 10 20:50:17 EDT 2018
This hotel was not bad but I’m surprised that it’s a five star hotel consistently ranked among the best in Hawaii. While I had a good time at the Halekulani, the level of service and attention to detail did not come close to watch I experienced at Four Seasons (Maui) and St. Regis (Kauai) from the moment we arrived. When our Uber dropped us off at the hotel around 1pm, the bellhop/porter just grabbed our luggage without a smile or greeting and gave them to the next person who was to take them up to our room. We were expecting him to introduce us to the next person who would take us to the concierge; however, he just walked away and no one approached us, so we hunted around to locate the concierge ourselves. Similarly, one of the pool guys displayed a similar attitude – when we asked him for beach towels, he did not crack a smile and gave us a look like, what do you want. These two employees made us feel like were imposing on them by asking them to do their jobs – this is not something you should feel from any service professional, but it’s something I’m willing to overlook at a cheaper hotel. For a five star hotel, this inconsistency in service is unacceptable. The pool itself is nothing to write home about in my opinion. Super crowded, tons of kids, not that big (wouldn't necessarily blame the hotel for any of the above; I realize you're working with limited space in Waikiki and kids are kids). Umbrella seats are limited. Guests will throw down towels and personal items and then walk away for hours and the pool staff doesn’t do anything about this; at the Four Seasons, you have a 1-1.5 hour grace period before the pool staff will remove your belongings for the next guest to use, but at the Halekulani it seems you can leave your stuff all day without anyone saying anything. In fact, one umbrella simply had folded towels on the chairs and when we inquired about that seat, we were told that it was reserved for guests in the executive suite. Well, we hung out by the pool all day and four hours later, these guests still hadn’t shown up. At the Four Seasons, guests can pay more to reserve a cabana, but seats aren’t just given away because of your suite status. This seems fairer to me. Also, I don’t think this would have bugged me as much if these people actually showed up. The room was pretty good. We had a partial ocean view room and the view was pretty incredible. The bed was comfy and the tub, relaxing. The rooms feel light and airy; I appreciate the white aesthetic vs brown wood paneling and dark colors other hotels often use. The little gifts they give you each night during turn down service were cute and fun. The maids leave the gifts on your doorknob if the privacy sign is activated; however, turn down service times were inconsistent and often times our room did not get serviced. The majority of the people who helped us during our stay were lovely. Pool guys Tom and John, Nicole at the concierge desk, Alfredo and Bree from the pool waitstaff, Josh at House without a Key, and Charlie from room service, to name a few, really stood out to us. These people were super friendly and helpful and really seemed to care that the guests have a good experience. There were many others whose names I forgot such as the bellhop who brought our luggage to our room and all the bellhops who helped us on our way out (it’s too bad they weren’t working when we checked in). Also, House Without a Key is a great restaurant. Breathtaking views of the sunset, great food, incredible desserts. We ate here almost every night and truly enjoyed ourselves. Sunday brunch at Orchids was lit, as the kids say, and the buffet each morning at both Orchids and House without a Key was pretty great as well. We definitely were not hurting for food options during this trip. The last thing that irked me is not an issue specific to Halekulani but one that most five star resorts should work on IMO: They kept calling me by my boyfriend’s last name. Mrs _____. Clearly the staff are advised to call us Mr. & Mrs., so I don’t fault them for this mistake, but I think this should stop. I realize it’s an attempt at formality in a five star resort, but that’s ruined when you don’t get my name right. I'd rather be called ma'am or Miss than by the wrong last name. It’s a little silly to assume that all couples are married and that all women take their husband’s last name. Even weirder because when we checked in, I was asked to provide ID, so my name was in the system. This isn’t a big issue in the grand scheme of things, but after being called someone else’s name for a week, you feel ready to return home to your real identity again, lol. Overall, I had a great trip and Hawaii as a whole was beautiful. Again, the majority of these "issues" would be non-issues in a regular hotel, but I think are worth addressing when extra money is paid for luxury and service in a five star hotel. We feel very fortunate to have taken such a lovely trip but I do think the the bar needs to be raised for this place.

Simply beautiful with world’s best service

We stayed here many years ago and were a little hesitant but should not have worried. From Executive Assistant manager Mark Waller to the room service team this hotel has the friendliest most professional service anywhere. The restaurants are excellent and the roooms offer unbeatable views. Our favourite in The USA.

When a guest arrives at the airport, the limo driver courteously takes one to collect all baggage and leads the guest to the limo. During the trip from the airport to the hotel, the driver explains the various buildings, businesses, etc. The ride is very smooth and driven with utmost care of the passengers. Upon arriving at the Halekulani, the guest is cared for by a host of employees - each one has a specific duty such as help the guest out of the limo,, remove luggage, confirm room accommodation, and guide the guest to check in. The guide waits and then shows the guest to its room. At the room, the suitcases are properly placed and then the guest is shown every aspect of the room, including the phone and how to use the safe. After the Bellman leaves, one gets a feeling of home and that no question is too small. The Manager of Guest Experiences is always ready to help. I, personally, have stayed at the Halekulani since 1954!!

Home away from home in the tropics

The best hotel in Hawaii by a long stretch. Great food and service and the famous orchid swimming pool. A haven in downtown Waikiki, just steps from the hustle and bustle of the city, but a peaceful, quiet and luxurious tropical resort. The best of everything. My only criticism after having stayed at my home away from home for over forty years is that the water in the pool could be cooler.

Wonderful Hotel with Great Service

We stayed here for 2 nights following an extended sailing vacation in French Polynesia and were seeking relaxation and comfort. The hotel provided us with what we were seeking. Room was excellent on all levels and had a very nice partial view of the ocean. Comfy bed, great air conditioning. Pool was also very nice and on the ocean. Poolside service was above average. The costs here were on the high end but well worth it. This hotel is also child friendly but there was no crazy horseplay in the pool which we also appreciated. There are lots of restaurants and lovely shops within short walking distance and the area was clean and safe. We will definitely be back!
