Tropical elegance in Waikiki
Located on the western side of Waikiki Beach, Halekulani exudes an understated tropical elegance and exceptional service, making it unforgettable. Guest rooms have deep soaking tubs and large lanais — handmade chocolates left in the rooms nightly by the staff are a reminder of the resort’s attention to detail.

Try surfing and snorkeling lessons on the beach, or take a bike ride around nearby Diamond Head. Besides occupying a prime spot on one of Hawaii’s most popular beaches, the resort boasts the superb SpaHalekulani, which celebrates the cultures of Hawaii, Asia and the South Pacific.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • Halekulani, or “house befitting heaven,” sits on the western side of Waikiki Beach on the island of Oahu.
  • Dating back to 1917, this historic five-acre property is a calm oasis in the otherwise bustling Waikiki.
  • Located right on the famous crescent-shaped sugar sand beach, the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel manages to keep its remote feel despite its centralized location.
  • Many of the 453 rooms take full advantage of the fabulous Hawaiian locale with large lanais (patios) and Pacific Ocean views.
The Restaurants
  • Halekulani has three very different, very good restaurants. For a Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star, fine dining experience with an ocean view, hit up La Mer for dinner.
  • The menu features must-have Neoclassic French dishes like sautéed foie gras with green and white asparagus, Chilean sea bass with Kurobuta pork belly, and roasted pineapple with fresh coconut milk sorbet.
  • Orchids, Halekulani’s casually elegant oceanfront restaurant, offers breakfast and lunch Monday through Saturday as well as a popular Sunday brunch buffet.
  • And for a really unique dining adventure, visit the House Without a Key for sunset cocktails and eats accompanied by live Hawaiian music. Head to the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel's indoor/outdoor restaurant for a relaxed and laid-back breakfast, lunch or dinner.
  • You’ll find just one bar within Halekulani: Lewers Lounge. Cocktail master Dale DeGroff, formerly of the Rainbow Room in New York, lives up to his nickname, King of Cocktails.
