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 registration in your guest room and extends to the tiniest of details, such as complimentary tickets to the 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 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 Lewer's 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 1.5 million glass mosaic tiles; small and intimate Gray's Beach fronts the hotel just beyond the pool.
Waikiki beach is romantic in itself; combine this location with the world-renowned service of Halekulani and, if your wallet allows, the resort's Vera Wang Suite, and you'll fall in love all over again. The suite's oceanside lanai opens to expansive views of iconic Diamond Head, and Ms. Wang herself oversees the fresh flower arrangements, just one of many touches throughout Halekulani that make it a top choice for romance.
