Halekulani is an oasis-like experience amid the energy of Waikiki. With our beachfront location and unobstructed views of Diamond Head, Halekulani is the sought-after destination for those wishing to honeymoon or vacation in Hawaii.
We are proud to continue our long tradition of excellence in hospitality, cuisine and amenities, and look forward to welcoming you soon to our “House Befitting Heaven.”
The Halekulani Way
Once you arrive on property, you know intuitively that it’s different here. Our profound commitment to service for over a century has cultivated the understated timeless poise of Halekulani today and touches everything we do. When a guest experiences Halekulani, they receive the dedicated focus and sincere care of our staff at the highest levels of polished service.
Yet, the energy and excitement of Waikiki are just steps away from our oasis of hospitality. Stroll amid all the shops and Luxury Row along Kalakaua, and feel the vibrancy of a thriving destination. Then return to Halekulani and to what our guests consider to be the finest hotel in Waikiki, where tranquility and understated elegance awaits.
We are proud to have the highest staff-guest ratio of any of the Hawaiian resorts. We are also proud that so many of our staff have been with us for decades and now their children are establishing their careers at Halekulani for a second generation of service and deeper commitment to the Halekulani family.
The Halekulani Legacy
Our beachfront location has welcomed people since 1883 when the original owner, Robert Lewers built a two-story house on the site of what is now our main building. The fishermen of the area would bring their canoes onto the beach in front of the property to rest.
So welcomed were they by the Lewers family that the locals named the location “house befitting heaven” or Halekulani.

At our Waikiki resort, we are rich in history, in stories and in places of interest.
As you stroll through our property, you’ll notice that the original bungalow, one of the first permanent structures on Waikiki, is now home to Orchids and La Mer restaurants. What was once a private home has evolved into one of the pre-eminent luxury hotels in Hawaii.
And that is just the beginning. We invite you to explore.
Tucked in our heart of the house, is our very own hotel florist. The creative floral designers are responsible for the striking pieces that you see around the hotels at both Halekulani and Halepuna Waikiki. Schooled in the style of Sogetsu Ikebana, the team is able to create florals for every occasion including wedding and other special events and are also able to order leis for any occasion.
