What hotel has the best view of Diamond Head in Honolulu?

Picture Paradise

Leave the icy chill of winter or stifling summer heat for a temperate and lush tropical island where sunlight sparkles like diamond across the water. The sand on the beach warms toes and the gentle rolling waves and surrounding beauty warm the soul. It must be paradise. It must be Hawaii.

Amid this tropical paradise in Honolulu is another paradise for travelers. Halekulani five-star luxury resort has been saying “Aloha” to guests since it opened just before the turn of the 20th century. It is a member of Leading Hotels of the World and is cited as one of the world's best hotels on the Condé Nast Gold List and Travel & Leisure 500 World's Best List.

In Hawaiian, Halekulani means “house befitting heaven” and guests soon discover this translation is true. From spacious guest rooms with a private lanai overlooking Diamond Head or Waikiki Beach to the Vera Wang romantic suite to the 4,000+ square foot Royal Suite, Halekulani hotel is decorated in soft sunset hues that complement the tropical greens and blues of the Pacific Ocean. No details are spared. Fresh fruit and chocolates are waiting. Bathrooms are sumptuous retreats featuring more than 15 personalized amenities. If you must stay in touch with the outside world, there are flat screen televisions, DVD/CD entertainment centers and wireless Internet access. Dine at La Mer, the only AAA five-diamond restaurant in Hawaii. Surrender to a rejuvenating massage at the spa or simply revel in being in paradise at the Halekulani.
