The tropical Halekulani serves as a quiet and blissful sanctuary, a world away from the masses at Waikiki. Situated on the beachfront, the property has welcomed guests since 1883 when the original owner built a two-story house on the site of what is now the main building.
All 453 rooms are designed in the hotel’s ‘seven shades of white,’ with epic views of the clear skies, green palms and electric blue-green sea. Furnished with modern amenities, balconies, and separate showers and tubs, they make for a calming and comfortable escape.
Pool attendants offer up sunscreen and towels to those languishing under shady umbrellas poolside and there’s a state-of-the-art gym with machines overlooking the ocean. The spa boasts an impressive menu of facials, wraps, Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massages and Zen acupressure treatments.
Practically a Hawaiian institution, the oceanfront restaurant, La Mer, combines island ingredients with intricate southern French techniques to dishes such as poached lobster and beef tartare. The adjoining cocktail bar, L’Aperitif at La Mer, delivers an innovative beverage program in a plush, intimate setting, that leaves you in no doubt that you’re somewhere special.
The property is a 22 minute drive from Honolulu International Airport.
Halekulani’s 453 rooms and suites are decked out in their signature “seven shades of white”, meant to showcase and frame the spectacular panoramic ocean views, without overpowering it.
Besides Waikiki Beach right on location, appreciate Hawaii’s historical heritage at the Pearl Harbour Memorial. Hike the Diamond Head trail 760 feet up to its summit, or visit the aquarium for a day of aquatic fun. As early as September, witness the breath-taking annual migration of Humpback whales. Three stunning and challenging golf courses are also nearby.
