Quiet elegance---my favorite hotel anywhere. Yes, it's expensive but you get what you pay for in Hawaii. Best for couples---families would be happier at one of the chain hotels (Halekulani has a small pool and no beach). Food is excellent at all their venues and their mai tai and coconut cake are the only ones worth having in Hawaii. Another... More

This hotel is probably one of the best in the world. Just look at the pool, no, the ocean, no, the gardens. The staff is attentive. We usually skip hotel meet the managers, not this time and worth it. Great location.

You can count 5 star luxury hotels in Waikiki on one hand - but this is one shines on all fronts. The Halekulani has it all from and you sense it from the moment you step out of the car. Service is outstanding, common areas impeccably maintained, gardens well tended to, accommodations as luxurious as your tastes (and bank account)... More

Waikiki always seems to be a little too on for my taste (think Vegas). I generally prefer a calmer more relaxing escape for my vacations. Nonetheless it is a beautiful destination with a perfect climate. I'm not a fan of crowds or standing in line for a restaurant or anything while on vacation. The Halekulani makes sure your vacation is... More

If you search for Hawaii Hotels, you will find many five stars hotels. But this hotel distinguishes itself by the real practice of 5 stars starting from check in up till the check-out. This hotel is for those who value the real meaning of 5 stars service and look for sharp details. It is therefore noticeable that majority of hotel... More

The authentic Hawaiian music and Hula show makes this hotel awesome. The rooms are pricey but gorgeous! A true historical hotel of 21st century quality! Worth eating at and Love T and TH BBQ night. Hope to return soon!

Stayed here on a reccommendation and was not disappointed. Beautiful location. Loved that it wasnt a huge hotel. Elegant, unrushed. Poolside was my favourite place with great menu and service. Breakfast a must. Great to be able to step straight onto beach for that early morning walk

We spent 5 days at the Halekulani and definitely enjoyed our time. Everybody was very polite, we had a nice room, that might need a little update, but was still fine. During our stay there was some renovating going on in one of the Restaurants. Therefore the hotel offered complimentary excursions every day. We joyned a sailing tour on a... More

We have stayed at this hotel previously and do think that it is the best on Waikiki beach. It has an elegant air about it and is far more upmarket than the other hotels on this strip of beach. However it is not ageing well at all , the rooms are old fashioned and a little grotty and the beds... More

This was my first stay in Waikiki and we wanted to be a little away from the madding crowd, so we chose Halekulani which is close enough to everything but just a little away from the really populated part of the beach. The corner suite was fabulous with windows on both sides and a great balcony from which to listen... More
