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.

    Peace and Quality

    Yes, this is an oasis on what is currently Waikiki. Yes, the rooms are smaller - and everything was perfectly at my fingertips. Really no reason to leave the hotel. The Staff make this hotel. From Jane the beautiful haired woman who checked us in - to the 2 men reclaiming a king bed out of two singles (who knew) who were ever pleasant and watching the warriors game with us; all the staff in the restuarants. The staff are professionals - and smile regularly - they are not some high school or college kids "getting through" their job. It makes a huge difference when you need a vacation and are treated like they are actually happy you are there. The restaurants do everything to accommodate your food menu changes or requests. The Pool staff put up with your moving chairs and needing towels, etc. etc. While yes- the beach is small - its perfect for soaking in the ocean - the turquoise water is like a healing magnet for the body. It's a wedding factory. Think we saw 5 beautiful weddings out of the 5 days we were there. If you need some large Vegas room - this is not your place.

    Long overdue review - this is the gold standard

    After providing a recent review for another resort, I made a comparison to the Halekulani and realized I never left a review. We came here as a staycation prior to moving from the island :'( We always heard about it and ate there for dinner, but never stayed. I have to say, the rumors we're true, this is one of the best places to stay and other resorts should visit and take notes. From the very beginning of coming in to leaving, we we're always greeted with smiles from everyone, and somehow, everyone knew our names (really creepy). When we came, the property wasn't modernly renovated (and to date, I don't know if it is), but the property was well maintained, rooms and service was perfect. We love our morning papaya in the room. It's hard to describe, but this place exudes a non-pretentious and sincere class in the most humbling way. It's no wonder why most Japanese tourist prefer that hotel. It is pricier than most on the strip, but if you are fortunate enough to afford it, I'd say splurge and go for it. The experience of a relaxing vacation where everything just seems to go right made a difference to us. Mahalo nui!

    Luxury Luxury

    This hotel is the most amazing I have ever stayed in. You don;t have to fight for a lounger, pool attendants lay out towels for you and bring you chilled pineapple, muffins and icecream while you are relaxing around their amazing pool.The outdoor restaurant House Without a Key is the best place for cocktails and dinner. Beautiful setting right on the beach. Hula girl and live band. Awesome!

    Love this hotel

    I love almost everything about this hotel - the secluded (for Waikiki) location, the service, the pool, the views, the cocktails, the coconut cake. I don't think you can get much better than this in Waikiki, although it does come at a cost. My only minor complaints are (1) lack of a coffee machine in the rooms and (2) lack of branded toiletries. Given the room prices, a Nespresso machine and better toiletries (Hermes? Malin+Goetz?) would be welcome.

    Charming Hotel and not like the others which let tourists come in and take photos

    My summary would be incredible views, lovely and friendly staff, generous sized rooms, great A La Carte breakfast, amazing restaurants, great sun lounges and the location couldn't be more perfect - a great first Hawaiian experience. Location - You couldn't get more breathtaking views or be any closer to the beach. You can leave the pool area to go for a dip in the ocean, then come back and lie on your lounger. I noticed that other hotels allowed people who weren't guests to roam inside the foyer/pool area, take photos etc. They don't allow this at Halakulani which makes it really peaceful and away from the hustle and bustle of the main Waikiki street. Food - Everything is great, quite a few different restaurants to choose from. My only comment would be the breakfast buffet could have a few more options including the bread. I wanted to address that everyone is saying this hotel is dated, I can understand that if BUT if you appreciate the history of this hotel and how they want to preserve the 'Hawaiianess' you understand why it looks how it is. You can't compare this hotel to a fancy four seasons or Ritz Carlton, the design is completely different. Everything seems to have a story which is really nice. The gardens and landscaping are stunning and I'm going to mention the views again because it really is a postcard of Waikiki with the Diamond Head backdrop.
