The Halekulani is an amazing hotel. The location is perfect, the rooms are lovely and the service is first rate. The breakfast buffet at House Without a Key is the best breakfast on the island. The Halekulani also offers great amenities for guests at various museums including Iolani Palace.

Hotel's Favourite
The hotel is a tranquil beauty with unmatched service. One of our favorite hotels and we have been staying for the last 30 years. Always beautiful and great service. The pool area is relaxing with beautiful views of Diamondhead and the pool temperature perfect. Rooms perfectly appointed and great service throughout the hotel.

One of the best hotels in Honolulu. The overall service is excellent and people are super friendly. The Le Mer restaurant and its bar program are both wonderful. The location is very central and a great home base to explore Honolulu.

The most perfect stay from the moment we arrived - service, rooms, food, drinks. The pool area is unbelievable and little private beach feels so exclusive. We spent our days lounging in the pool area, able to order drinks and food as needed and diving into their beautiful pool. At night, we often found ourselves at the hotel’s restaurants rather than venturing further - everything was too perfect to leave!

This is a special hotel on Waikiki and for years I have wanted to stay there and finally had an opportunity. For my tastes, too many hotels are either over-glorified shopping malls and/or blare music everywhere and leave you with no peace, and they often are overcrowded, meaning annoying waits for the elevator and a general hustle-bustle that detracts from the vacation experience. In contrast, the Halekulani is a clean, modern space that is an island of calm and respite, free from the usual grind that attends a stay at large, corporate-run large hotels. The hotel's public spaces are quietly elegant and open to Hawaii's prevailing trade winds, meaning they are comfortable all day and all night, even during the height of summer. The rooms are clean, simply adorned, and very comfortable, and they are lit with warm-temperature lighting (thankfully!) and include a mini-fridge and a pod-style coffee-maker. We reserved with breakfast included in our room rate, which worked very well. Breakfast is a high-end buffet affair, like a Hawaiian version of an Israeli breakfast, with abundant tropical fruit and some Asian-food options, plus plenty of good coffee or espresso drinks. All of this is offered in a Hawaii-style, open-air setting with a beautiful view of the tropical Pacific Ocean and Diamond Head. As an alternative, guests may enjoy a white-tablecloth breakfast at Orchids, another restaurant on the hotel grounds, and enjoy similar views. The hotel's Waikiki location means you have endless options for food and entertainment within an easy walk. My favorite was Big Wave Dave's surf shop, not a half block away, which serves good-quality latte drinks and some light food items (believe it or not). Across the street from Big Wave Dave's is an ABC Store - a Hawaiian version of Circle K or Seven-Eleven, but nicer inside and with abundant tourist items for sale - that offers inexpensive sushi, Korean food, salads, fruit and many other food items. It's a great place to stock up on snacks and drinks for the hotel room. With a big breakfast available as part of the room charge, a light lunch is just the thing so you won't be overloaded at dinner time. Each night of our stay we went out to dinner somewhere in Waikiki with family who live nearby. On a Friday night there was a jazz duo playing softly in a hotel bar, a great spot for a nightcap. Overall, I am so happy I had the opportunity to stay at this classy, aesthetically pleasing, comfortable hotel with first-class service. I hope to get back soon.

One of the best hotels in the world. Superior service, everybody at the pool knew our names after one day and provided us always with fresh water and little treats. The little beach in front of the hotel is not to crowded, every night live music and only steps away from hundreds of shops and restaurant… without being too touristic like all the other hotels around. Clearly a hidden gem. Cannot wait to come back!!

Stayed (unfortunately) only one night during a multi island trip; this was our second time at the Halekulani after our honeymoon in 2005. The hotel still is as gorgeous. Our connecting rooms were very well appointed, with great ocean views and offering a good night’s sleep. The location is super and we loved jumping straight into the warm ocean for some water fun. Had lovely drinks at the House without a Key (thanks Cenon) and later a lovely dinner at the same place. Breakfast buffet was a little too basic (we had to pay additionally for some avocado - which unfortunately was not ripe). Halekulani is all about service from the very swift check in/out, via the pool service up to Shun offering to pick up our lost luggage from HNL. Next time, we will make sure to spend a couple of days.
