The Halekulani Honolulu

The Halekulani Honolulu is a 4.5 star, 100 year old hotel with 453 rooms in a prime direct beachfront location in Waikiki's western end near the Trump Tower, Fort DeRussy and The Hilton Hawaiian Village.

In Hawaiian Halekulani means a house befitting heaven. It is very private and exclusive and the service is impeccable. While it is smaller than some of the other nearby hotels some people may find this to be a plus as it doesn't have a busy hustle and bustle feel to it.

It is so private that unless you are staying there or are dining at one of their high-end restaurants you can't even walk around the property. Celebrity clients have stayed here for this reason so it's great for peace and quiet and some R&R.

The setting is also very romantic. When you arrive you are personally greeted and escorted to your room. The staff somehow remembers your name.

It is a beautiful property that definitely feels tropical. There is a fitness center with classes, free wired and wireless internet as well as welcome fruits and chocolates upon your arrival.

This is a great hotel for someone who really likes and appreciates "little touches". Other ammenities include a business center, fitness center, room service, suites, pool and bar/lounge.

If you've always dreamed of that "once in a lifetime, fantasy Hawaiian vacation" Halekulani delivers.

*Note: One thing to consider with Halekulani at the moment is that it is an older property and looks that way in certain respects. They are currently undergoing renovations and updates scheduled to take place in phases over time.

There are 4 dining options on site outside of room service but 2 of the most notable are La Mer and Orchids. I consider them both to be special occassion restaurants or 2 places where you truly want to enjoy the spoils of your hard work and treat yourself.

Orchids features a seafood-based menu and locally grown ingredients. Situatued oceanside with fresh orchids throughout it also features a great Sunday brunch. Mondays through Saturdays Breakfast and lunch are served. Attire during the day is casual but a little more dressed up at night.

La Mer is a consistently ranking 5 star fine dining restaurant featuring neoclassic French cuisine. The setting is romantic with teak furniture and has a formal and classy feel.

The views are direct ocean view. Attire is formal and it is a very romantic setting and perfect for special occassions.
