Overlooking Diamond Head and the Pacific Ocean, this Waikiki hotel has been welcoming guests for over a century. The name 'Halekulani', meaning 'house befitting heaven', was given to it by local fishermen due to the warm welcome they received from the original owners. You can expect bright, airy rooms with magnificent views of the ocean or the verdant gardens. It’s a true oasis away from the lively city nearby.
Both suites and rooms are available and each offers varying views of the ocean. Rooms each feature a seating area, private bathroom and a lanai (veranda). The Halekulani’s signature white decor draws the primary focus to the beautiful sea views. All include an LCD TV, electronic safe, MP3 dock and Wi-Fi.
Halekulani Hotel fronts on to the beach with unobstructed views of Diamond Head and the Pacific Ocean. It’s a short ten minute walk to the designer shops and varied restaurants in the bustling middle of town.

There are various restaurant options at Halekulani, whether you’re looking for fine dining at La Mer, early evening cocktails at Lewers Lounge or an al-fresco evening meal at Orchids.
