Just won $50,000 in the lottery and planning my dream vacation to Honolulu, Hawaii. I intend to travel there using Honolulu Internatonal Airport.

I intend to view …

True Paradise

A travel blog entry by debray51


Hello all,
We have spent the last few days at the Halekulani and it is the most beautiful spot in Waikiki. We cancelled our trip to Sealife Park so we could just enjoy the surroundings. On Thursday we went to the IHOP to have pancakes and on the way back we stopped to watch a huge display of a Marine Marching band and an Armed Marching Squad ( …

There were a few home bases I needed to cover before solely taking my adventures international and one of them was Hawaii. I met this trip with anticipation and dread. I anticipated the surf, the nature and the history, I dreaded the flock of Americans in their seemingly location specific floral button downs, and the chain restaurants stacked on …

Day 4: First Day of workshops

A travel blog entry by johnmu


Today started with catching 7 am shuttle bus to the University of Hawaii, Kapiolani Community College Campus. This first day of workshops and key notes drew a reported 3600 participants to the Community College which was located on the western side of Diamond Head about 15 rep drive from the centre of Waikiki. CSO Armidale staff presented two workshops documenting the cutting edge work diocesan staff are doing in ...

... shoes on. I hiked Koko head at night to watch the full moon. OlaMona three peaks was in another league and was way over the radar of intense. Up and over the three ridges of the peaks with no harness, few ropes and pretty much just impeccable balance, good hand food coordination and a bucket load of courage because once you start there is no way of turning back, especially when you are half way up peak three with a massive vertical rock you must climb along ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Halekulani Hotel Honolulu

    A true "Leading Hotel of the World"


    If you are looking for budget travel, do not stay at Halekulani, but if you wish for a five star hotel, this is it.

    Absolutely the best!


    Best ambiance, best service, just simply the best!What else can I say?

    Not What I Expected


    The service is excellent, other than that you can have it. Room was small despite the grand price. Just nothing to impressive about this hotel. I have read so many great reviews and realize it's noted as one of the best hotels in the world. We travel to Hawaii several times a year due to family living there, and we will never stay here again.

    You'll find better luck at the Kahala Mandarin. The beach even stinks here, we just never got why it has such great reviews.

    Spectacular service


    My husband and I just spent 3 nights at the Halekulani in June. The ocean view room was simply breathtaking and the service and the amenities at the hotel were spectacular. What a great place to begin our 2 week anniversary vacation.

    One of best hotels on earth


    Service is unreal, rooms are very nice, food is unreal, views are spectacular, beach is small, pool is big, House without a key is the best place on earth to be at sunset!!!

    Where is the beach?


    The Hotel is pretty not an Oasis, the restaurants are great. The newly open spa is a little above average. Is not the usual, gym, steam room sauna and spa. The gym is in another wing, there is no steam room etc.

    In other words you can tell the spa was an add on. Beware there is hardly a beach, is a little larger that a sand box and when high ties comes along it wipes the little beach away,until low tie comes. The Hotel is sandwiched between other two hotels (all waikiki is over build).

    Halekulani, House Befitting Heaven


    When you arrive, you immediately sense the tranquil and calming environment. All the hustle and bustle of Waikiki is left behind. You are shown to your room or suite by one of the front desk staff and check in occurs once inside your room. There are always the welcoming touches, the chocolates, bowls of fruit and lovely flower arrangements.

    Fantastic Hotel


    Stayed at this hotel in 1978, in cabin. Stayed again last week for two nights. This hotel is 5-star all the way. Flawless.

    Bad experience with reservation dept.


    When inquiring the availability of rooms, making reservation and cancelling the reservation, I contacted the reservation dept. by e-mail or by facsimile first.

    Nobody responded to me.

    Everything started after my having called the dept

    (to my surprise, knowing nothing is processed) and strongly requesting to process my request promptly.



    We just returned from a wonderful trip in Oahu. We stayed 5 nights at the Halekulani. It was everything that I ever expected and more. We stayed in their prime ocean view room. The view was spectacular. Service was incredible. We will definitely be back. It was expensive but found it to be worth every penny.
