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.

    Best Hotel in Honolulu !!

    One of the Best Hotel in Honolulu, with Top Notch service, amazing pool, friendly, professional and cheerful staff. Great Rooms, Beach access. We had a wonderful stay at Halekulani Hotel, We only wish if the limited beach access should be changed.

    A lovely hotel with a fantastic pool. Although nicely decorated, it is in a fairly plain dated style. Staff and general hotel are absolutely fabulous. So helpful and very slick. Beach access is limited but found it nice to be a little out of the beach hustle and bustle to be honest. Restaurants here are great. The little late night bar is fabulous and entertainment fantastic. Rooms were great size and really good interconnecting rooms. Highly recommend!

    Its the best

    Have stayed here a number of times and it remains, in my opinion, the best hotel in Honolulu. Not quite really on Waikiki but close enough with great views of Diamond Head (if you have the right room). The service is top notch, the hotel is pristine, and the ambiance really relaxed. The Bar Without A Key has music and Hula dancing every evening by beautiful mature women who really know how to do this dance, not a lot of wiggling in short skirts going on here. The food in all the restaurants is superb, and the service is great. They know you after the first night. The pool area is crowded during the day, but it is very well kept. Most flights to the US leave in the evening, which always used to leave us with the "what to do" during the afternoon. The Halekulani has a room set aside to wait in, with lockers where you can leave a change of clothes after you shower and clean up in the available shower rooms. Really a first rate institution.

    Practically perfect.....

    This is probably the best hotel I have ever stayed in, and I don't say that lightly. It has a sort of old-world colonial charm, a bit like Raffles in Singapore, but very much in the 21st century as well. Exceptional service, good position on the beach and near Kalakaua Avenue, lovely pool, and a wonderful atmosphere in the evenings when everyone gathers on the terrace for cocktails and live music. The thing that made it totally perfect for me was the blissful absence of any pop music playing on speakers at the pool - something that ruins so many hotels these days. At certain times of the day they had a live group playing Hawaiian music, but that's fine. The only very slight suggestions that I would make would be to have coffee-making facilities in the rooms, and to get rid of those daft electronic toilets that spray water at your nether regions when you are least expecting it... but I could probably do with less caffeine anyway, and we solved the toilet problem by unplugging it!

    Best hotel in Waikiki

    I love writing reviews when I have so much amazing feedback to give. My hubby and I had planned to stay at another hotel and when we arrived at that hotel we were very disappointed. We had stayed in Hawaii 2 years prior and had visited the Halekulani for dinner. We walked there on a hope and a prayer they would have a room available. By the time we reached the hotel we were so hot and uncomfortable not to mentioned stressed about what our holiday was going to end up like if we couldn't get a room here. Lea met us with a huge warm smile and listened to my dilemma. Within 5 minutes we had a room booked for five nights and it would be ready in an hour!!! That's amazing service. Lea offered us water and a place to sit so we could take the long walk back to the other hotel that we had decided to cancel. From that moment on to now , I can confidently say this is the best hotel in all of Waikiki. The location, the facilities, the pool area and service. The food is amazing, the cocktails are amazing but most importantly the team are incredible Lea is an asset to the hotel and I hope she gets the recognition she honestly deserves. Her customer service was above and beyond and our room was simply stunning Vanessa at concierge was absolutely delightful to deal with. Nothing was a problem. All the team are great however these 2 ladies were a stand out. I want to mention all the little things that make it worth laying a bit more to stay here. Free water in our room and also around the pool Free snacks around the pool from mini muffins to ice blocks Free gifts with every turn down service at night Free coffee to go in the morning Staff that are very knowledgeable and helpful to plan trips and tours for you Free wifi A choice of a la carte breakfast or buffet (we had this included in our package) 3 restaurants that are absolutely incredible Lewers lounge bar (see my review on this) Oh and free sunscreen. Before we arrived at Waikiki we had a week at the 4 seasons on Maui and the service and quality at the Halekulani definitely gave it a run for its money!!!! Pay a bit extra and stay at the beautiful well maintained hotel. You wont regret it!!!
