Absolutely the the most elegant and private hotel in Waikiki. Heads and tails above the Royal Hawaiian. Service is impeccable. Rooms have been very smartly redone recently. Definitely upgrade to the prime diamond head view. Worth every penny.

Hotel's Favorite
I have had the privilege to stay at the Halekulani Hotel twice in the last three months. The rooms are tasteful yet equipped with world class luxurious amenities guaranteed to satisfy even the most discerning taste. The location is absolutely perfect as an oasis right in the middle a major metropolitan city. But as with most of my evaluations it is the people that set the Halekulani apart. Warm, genuine, professional and friendly come to mind. I dined at Orchids three times, at the pool four times (maybe a few more beverages!!) and enjoyed cocktails at Lewers Lounge and House without a Key. The superior craftsmanship of the product and knowledgeable service is noticed and appreciated. One other thing that has become apparent to me while at the Halekulani. A very large percentage of the guests are return guests. Many that I met have been coming to the hotel for 30 - 40 years! I think it is fun to hear their stories and respect the hotel for understanding and perfecting the art of true service. So, if you have the opportunity you will not regret staying at the Halekulani and more likely than not you will make memories that will be cherished for a lifetime! And isn't that why we travel?

I have never written a Trip Advisor review before, but this was just such a fabulous experience that I simply had to take the time to review. I have never been so impressed by a hotel. We live in Hawaii and wanted a romantic get away for my husband’s birthday. Our favorite restaurant is Orchids and we always dreamt of staying at this hotel one day. We decided to make that dream a reality for a one night stay. We had the most amazing experience and truly did not want to leave, so we extended our stay. We have stayed in many fine hotels around the world, and without a doubt, Halekulani is the most special. It’s a slice of Heaven. You feel like you have escaped the hustle and bustle of Waikiki the moment you pull up to the hotel and enter its grounds. You immediately sense that this is going to be a special experience. You enter a tropical retreat with perfectly manicured grounds and attention to detail everywhere you look. The staff is simply incredible and they go above and beyond to make your stay extraordinary. We were greeted by front-desk staff who wished my husband a happy birthday and offered little perks to make it even more memorable. As we walked up to our room, we were taken aback by the gorgeous ocean views and the serenity in the atmosphere. Our room was immaculately furnished- smelled wonderful, the TV was set on relaxing music to greet us, and there was a bottle of champagne gifted to us by the hotel, as well as tropical fruit. The hotel was recently renovated and it shows. We enjoyed sitting on the lanai and watching the ocean waves and the surfers. It was such a treat to sit on the relaxing chairs and sip coffee in the mornings. We were amazed how serene this hotel is. We have stayed in other Waikiki hotels and you are kept up late at night by party goers. Not here- this hotel is simply classy. Even little details such as no swimsuits or towels hanging on guests balconies to detract from the beauty. There is a sign that politely asks you to refrain from doing so, which I appreciated. That way I could focus on the ocean instead of looking at clothing items. The pool is spectacular and feels sophisticated- you will not find little kids cannon balling and splashing you here. There were a few families with kids but they were very respectful. The pool is heated, which was a nice feature. When you enter the pool, there is a staff member that asks you what kind of seats you want- if you want to stay in the sun or shade, face the ocean or garden area. They will walk around with you to find just the right spot and add wonderfully comfort chair covers and give you towels and bottled water. The cocktails by the pool were delicious, as was the food. Staff was just a wave away, and they made sure you had everything you needed. The beach in front of the hotel is quiet and beautiful, and mostly visited by hotel guests. Halekulani has the best restaurants in Oahu. We had dinner at Orchids, which is always a treat! The most beautiful views of Diamond Head and you can catch a gorgeous sunset. The food is spectacular, and the desserts are so, so good. We have upcoming reservations at La Mer, and are so looking forward to it. It is known for simply the finest cuisine in Oahu. Housekeeping staff was so friendly and helpful. Any time we needed them, they are were just a phone call away. They made sure that the room was truly spotless! We have stayed at many hotels in Hawaii, including the finest in Oahu, and trust me when I say that this experience does not compare. You do not want to stay anywhere else if you have sophisticated taste and only want the finest experience. Certainly no where else in Waikiki where you may encounter loud tourists. Halekulani is in a league of its own and we cannot wait to return! Mahalo to the staff for such a memorable stay. You personify the Aloha spirit.

This was one of the best vacation experiences ever! Everything was perfect for my daughter and I on our mother-daughter vacation. Our room was great! We enjoyed stunning views of the evening sunset from our deck every day. Breakfast at the Orchid restaurant was fabulous! The spa experience was incredible. The staff was wonderful, and treated everyone like a VIP. Hands down 10+/10 rating for every single staff we interacted with! The level of hospitality was incredible! Thank you thank you thank you!

This hotel has amazing clean rooms that have an beautiful beach vibe decor. All facilities in room were perfect including Nespresso machine. The staff went out of their way to do everything for you. The cleaners were so sweet and did a great job. The rooms were soooo clean. At the pool they set up your chairs, brought you water, frozen grapes and biscuits (free of charge). Best of all you could actually get somewhere to sit. The board hire was easy and a great price. Breakfast was excellent. The staff were attentive. I love to swim in the ocean and the little beach outside the hotel was sandy and clean. Overall, prefect holiday in a perfect location
