Halekulani

Recommended Posts

The Halekulani, originally a private beachfront estate, has been accommodating discriminating travelers to Waikiki Beach since 1917. Its tradition of gracious hospitality still prevails today in the same beachfront setting, an oasis of luxury, fine cuisine and personalized service. The luxury hotel is located on five prime oceanfront acres on Waikiki Beach and is within easy walking distance of Honolulu's finest shopping, dining, entertainment and watersports. It is 25 minutes from the Honolulu International Airport.

 

The 456-room hotel links the elegance of the past with that of the present. The design of Halekulani incorporates extensive use of Italian terrazzo and fine woods and maximizes the hotels's prime location on Waikiki Beach. More than 90 percent of the guest rooms face the Pacific, offering sweeping views of the beach and famed Diamond Head.

Has anyone else stayed here? We're in Oahu from June 3-6, and this is where we're staying. I'd love some personal pictures of the grounds, things I should know, etc.

My first trip to Hawaii was when I was 17 with some girlfriends who ended up being too clicky for me, so I went off alone.

 

The pool at our hotel sucked so I walked in the Halekulani like I was a guest and went straight to the pool. OMG the pool & view is amazing. I was having the best swim of my life until one of the staff spotted me as an intruder and kicked me out about 30 minutes later :o(

 

So, I can't vouch for the rooms, but I can say the pool is amazing and the staff is on top of making sure only guests use the facilities. You'll have a blast!

The Halekulani is a beautiful hotel. I've been to a couple of business functions there and they were all very well done. The only problem with the hotel: it's in Waikiki. I used to live on O'ahu and I can't stand Waikiki.

 

The turtle bay hilton on the north shore and the ko'olina resort on the West side of the Island have a far less touristy feel.

    • Dental care would be very challenging when you are invited to a wedding. Everyone needs a clean and white teeth. I was also looking for a dental clinic in Toronto but all of the Doctor were busy. This was when I found Walk in Dental Clinic in Yonge Street just south of Steels. Since they were open until midnight, I did not have to leave my work early to get to my dentist. This dental clinic used dental veneers for my teeth and at the wedding everyone was asking me how I created my smile very nice.  The fact that they accept emergency patients for dental care is also very good. before the wedding, I recommend using this dentistry. If you need emergency dental care in Toronto visit Dr Karimi and Walk in dental clinic for their great patient care and service. 
    • I'm so sorry to hear this  Did you have a signed contract with him? What did he or the contract say the turn around time be? If it is way past the deadline, you have made several documented attempts to contact him, and he has broken your contract and failed to produce what has been promised, you could resort to writing an online review of your experience -- often times, that motivates vendors who've dropped the ball to rectify the situation because it affects other potential clients. 
    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
