A refreshing tropical ambience sets the mood in a quiet setting along Waikiki's Gray's Beach.
Nestled along historic Gray’s Beach in Waikiki, this hotel is widely known as one of the best on the island. Once a private residential hotel estate, it was converted to a resort a century ago. It is a favorite gathering spot for weddings, Sunday brunch, Mother’s Day, baby showers and other milestone events. The property has 453 amenity-filled rooms and suites (90 percent with ocean views), but you'd never know it's that large; the separate buildings are arranged around tranquil courtyards and gardens so that a feeling of intimacy and quiet pervades. Helping with that feeling is the hotel's location on the beach, a long block seaward from the noise and traffic of Kalakaua Avenue. The style is fresh, reflecting the ocean setting, and accommodations include the one-of-a-kind, Asian-influenced Halekulani Suite with hand-selected design details and personalized butler and airport limousine services. This beloved property provides beachfront exclusiveness, a spacious spa, a pool and deck, impeccable service and special amenities like fresh fruit, deep soaking tubs and twice-a-day housekeeping. House restaurant La Mer serves locally influenced French cuisine, while Orchids offers casual al fresco dining. Shopping, entertainment and more are within easy walking distance.
