Refined tropical ambiance 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 nearly a century ago. It is a favorite gathering spot for weddings, Sunday brunch, Mother’s Day, baby showers and the like. The hotel is squeezed in between all the hustle and bustle of Waikiki’s rejuvenated Beach Walk Promenade, yet retains a relaxed atmosphere. The property has 453 amenity-filled rooms and suites (90 percent of them 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 property provides beachfront exclusiveness, a spacious spa, a pool and deck, large guest rooms and suites (including the one-of-a-kind Halekulani Suite), impeccable service and special amenities like fresh fruit, deep soaking tubs and twice-a-day housekeeping. Shopping, transportation, entertainment, activities and more are within easy walking distance.
