The luxurious Halekulani exemplifies the translation of its name — the 'house befitting heaven' — and from the moment you step into the lobby, the attention to detail and impeccable service wrap you in privilege at this beachfront location away from Waikiki's bustle.



Leave the bright colors and the historic trappings to the Royal Hawaiian. Leave the colonial details and the grand old dame title to the Moana Surfrider. Leave the Dolphin Quest and the suburban serenity to the Kahala. If the brand of luxury you're seeking is whitewashed Zen with clean lines and fastidious service, in the center of Waikiki, the Halekulani delivers.



Of all the hotels in Waikiki, this one feels the most peaceful, abetted by lovely, personable service. It’s a true escape.
