Supporting Our Community

Halekulani strives to support the local community through its arts, culture, and sustainability initiatives.

Similar to the Hawaii Tourism Authority’s Malama Hawaii program, which provides various activities for mindful guests to help preserve our natural resources, learn about our culture, and engage with the local communities, Halekulani is constantly finding ways to keep our guests engaged in “traveling pono” or “traveling with care.”

The “For You, Everything” program, which was started in 1998, allows ours guests access to cultural venues such as the Bishop Museum, Honolulu Museum of Art, Iolani Palace, Hawaii Symphony Orchestra, and the Shangri La Museum of Islamic Art, Culture & Design to learn more about Hawaii’s rich history and culture.

SpaHalekulani was the first spa in Hawaii to be part of the Green Circle Salon organization which reuses, repurposes, and recycles all of its waste.

Our corporate sponsorship with the Hawaiian Legacy Reforestation Initiative allows guests to restore the integrity and biodiversity of Hawaii’s endemic forests.

Halekulani Corporation Partners with Hawaiian Legacy Reforestation Initiative to Plant, Maintain, and Support the Hawaiian Legacy Forest

Halekulani Corporation, which owns and operates both Halekulani and Halepuna Waikiki hotels, announces its partnership with Hawaiian Legacy Reforestation Initiative (HLRI), a Hawaii-based 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to restore the biodiversity and integrity of Hawaii’s endemic forests.

“We are honored to support HLRI’s reforestation mission” said Peter Shaindlin, the corporation’s Chief Operating Officer. “Planting one tree can offset a weeklong vacation for a family of four. Our guests are welcome to plant their own tree in the Halekulani & Halepuna Waikiki Forest to connect with our ‘aina (land).”

In addition to guests being able to physically plant a tree, proceeds from signature logo items from Halepuna Waikiki’s online shop will go towards this mission.

From our “House Befitting Heaven” and “House of Welcoming Waters” to the uplands of our Hawaiian forests, we welcome you to experience and be rooted in our commitment for sustainability on our island.
