Best Hotels for Afternoon Tea
in the U.S.
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, Halekulani — which in Hawaiian means "House Befitting Heaven" — is widely known as one of the best hotels on the island. Once a private residential hotel estate, it was converted to a resort a century ago and has been a haven for travelers and residents alike since its humble beginnings in 1917. It is a favorite gathering spot for weddings, Sunday brunch, Mother’s Day, baby showers and other milestone events.
The property has 453 guest rooms and suites (most 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. The style here 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. Standard room perks are excellent, including deep soaking tubs, MP3 docking stations, 40-inch flat panel LCD HD-TVs and a minimum 500 square feet of space.
This beloved property provides beachfront exclusiveness, a spacious spa, a pool and deck, impeccable service and special touches like fresh fruit and twice-a-day housekeeping. House restaurant La Mer serves French cuisine with local influences, while Orchids offers casual al fresco dining. Shopping, entertainment and more are within easy walking distance.
Under the wellness header you get SpaHalekulani, which highlights the importance of rejuvenating the body, mind and spirit through immersive and exclusive seminars with renowned experts in the fields of beauty, health and wellness. Masterworks builds on the long-standing relationship the Halekulani has with the arts community in Honolulu through the "For You, Everything" program which provides VIP access to museums and historical establishments.
Considering the gracious setting and hospitality of this hotel with its commitment to an enriched lifestyle, it is easy to understand why it commands such guest loyalty.
