What People Are Saying:

A slice of heaven!

This hotel was the true epitomy of elegance. We were double upgraded to an Ocean View room overlooking the pool and it We loved the speedy way housekeeping showed up after we called to make up your room. On rainy days the bellman made sure you had an umbrella to take with you. The food was excellent. We dined at Orchids, had room service and the buffet breakfast and had not one complaint. The house without a key was as tranquil as it gets with the lovely hula dancer and the slack key guitar. The beds were very comfortable and the linens were so soft. The pool attendants were right there. It was as if they watched you to make sure you were attended to. We would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone!
Terry, Gilroy, TX

Honeymoon Delight

Well for a first time experience to the Islands it was exactly what people say it is. Paradise. The hotel services had made me and my wife feel like a King and Queen. The staffing and management staff were top notch. Very friendly and made you feel welcome to be there. It had us talking for a while after we left the hotel to jouney onto another Island and then back home. The experience was so good that we are now planning out 2005 trip and staying at the hotel for a longer period of time. We look forward to seeing all of you again in the near future.

Honeymooning in Hawaii

We stayed at the Halekulani Resort in Waikiki Beach. Halekulani translates as "House Befitting Heaven" and the translation says it all. It was selected the number-one hotel on the island in 2003 by every top travel magazine and publication you can think of: Cond Nast Traveler, Travel and Leisure, Zagat's Top US Hotels, Resorts and spas, and so on. We were absolutely blown away by this place! We have both stayed at some very nice hotels before this one, but I have to say Halekulani stands apart, far apart. Everything about this resort says each guest is treated like a VIP big shot. Starting with a very private check-in where you are greeted by a receptionist who escorts you to your room for a private registration. Then ending with the stretch limo service to the airport, which is at the cost of a regular cab ride for their guests. This resort treats you like a VIP. Complimentary Champagne, fresh chocolate covered strawberries and assorted fruits were prearranged on our coffee table with a personalized card congratulating us on our honeymoon. Our room was very large and lavish for a partial ocean view room. We had an incredible view of the pool, diamond head, and Waikiki beach from our private lanais. We had a better view than some of the ocean view rooms did! The service was A+, right from arrival to departure everyone addressed us as Mr. and Mrs. Heary. Even the staff you dont expect, like housekeeping, bell staff, wait staff, and pool attendants addressed us like visiting VIPs. The pool at Halekulani was very nice with oversize pool towels. Our only complaint was that it closed at 6pm every night. It would have made a perfect moonlit swimming spot. The resort is of course right on a great stretch of Waikiki beach with a stunning view of diamond head in the distance. The beach was impeccably maintained. The central location of Halekulani made shopping, eating, and site seeing a breeze. As for the restaurants, see the restaurants section above. Overall this is the best hotel we have ever stayed at and recommend it even given its hefty price (it IS worth it). We will never forget our experience at the house befitting heaven.

Birthday in Hawaii

We went to the Halekulani for my daughter's 15th birthday. It was perfect for us and although the property was busy it was quiet and peaceful at the same time. The staff was very friendly and our check in process was easy. Our room was clean and updated and the beds were very comfortable. I would definitely visit the Halekulani again!
C. O'Neill, Las Cruces, NM

Best Experience Ever

My wife and I just celebrated the 40th anniversary of our first date at Halekulani. My travel agent said I would not regret it and she was absolutely right. The property is absolutely lovely but what sets Halekulani apart is the overall service provided from the time you arrive to the time you depart. The personal greetings at breakfast, the room service, the quality of food and level of service at the various restaurants on site are all exceptional. We treated ourselves to "La Mer" , the on site five diamond restaurant, and the experience was absolutely wonderful. Orchids restaurant on site serves wonderful dinners and a world class Sunday Brunch. We look forward to a return visit in the not too distant future.

Couples retreat!

I took my wife to the Halekulani to get away from the kids and take some time off together and reconnect. The property was fabulous and quiet....so romantic. I realized that it's a popular place for couples and return guests. I can see why.

Peaceful and full of Aloha Spirit

My wife and I stayed at the Halekulani last month for our Anniversary. We chose the property because of all the reviews we read about it being peaceful and the staff being so friendly. We were not disappointed and everything nice we read about it was true. I would refer any adult couple there who wants to "get away" and have a taste of Aloha Spirit!
