2199 Kalia Rd., Honolulu, Hawaii, 96815, USA

The luxurious Halekulani exemplifies the translation of its name—the "house befitting heaven"—and from the moment you step into the lobby, the attention to detail and impeccable service wrap you in privilege at this beachfront location away from Waikiki's bustle. It begins with private in-room registration and extends to the tiniest of details, such as complimentary tickets to the Honolulu Museum of Art. Spacious guest rooms, artfully appointed in marble and wood, have ocean views and an extra large lanai. You'll also find fine dining options at Orchids, which hosts a popular Sunday brunch, and at La Mer with its Belle Epoque bar, L'Aperitif. Don't forget to sip a handcrafted cocktail and listen to live jazz at the chic Lewers Lounge. For a day of divine pampering, check into the award-winning SpaHalekulani. Outside, the resort's freshwater, heated pool has an orchid design created from more than 1½ million glass mosaic tiles; small and intimate Gray's Beach fronts the hotel just beyond the pool.
