Want to know more about why the art and architecture of Halekulani are so distinct? About some of the significant trees located on property? Or about the special fishing shrine, Ku’ula, that was in one of the original Halekulani bungalows and now moved to a special location of the historical Main Building? We invite Halekulani registered guests to join us on the hotel’s weekly Historical Tour to learn about the first Hawaiians, their traditions and the legacy of Halekulani.
Guests partaking in the tour meet at the Gatehouse, where they then follow Hi’inani Papapa Blakesley, a native of Honolulu, as she guides them around the hotel to explore various aspects of the property that many visitors pass, several notice, but very few fully comprehend. Over the course of the 90 minute tour, participants discover more about Halekulani’s cherished beachfront location on Waikiki and gain a deeper understanding of why Hawaiian royalty chose to relax in these cherished waters.
