Haute Hula: Halekulani

Vera Wang is internationally known for her beautiful wedding gown designs. At the Halekulani in Waikiki, you can spend your entire honeymoon wrapped in Vera Wang elegance.

The Vera Wang Suite, one of three Premier Suites at the hotel, was personally designed by Wang herself, and features sophisticated decor hand-selected from her home, gift, bath and accessories collections, as well as with rare furnishings from Hawaii, the Pacific and Asia.

Spectacular views of Waikiki Beach and Diamond Head’s volcanic crater can be seen throughout the suite. A private ocean-side lanai is the perfect place for a private dinner, or for just laying around. Personal butler service and 24-hour in-room fine dining is available for couples that want to enjoy the amenities of the hotel from the comfort of the suite. Couples can kick-off their stay with the in-bed “Diamond Head Breakfast” experience, and then be treated to en-suite spa services by the staff of SpaHalekulani, including a couple’s massage.

Wang also worked with Halekulani’s in-house florist to create original arrangements of her favorite tropical flowers throughout the suite, so the lush beauty of Hawaii surrounds guests, both inside and out. The suite also features a TOTO deep-soaking tub, a 50-inch flatscreen plasma TV with DVD and CD entertainment center (with a collection of “Vera’s Favorites” movies), complimentary Wi-Fi and a master control system so guests can control the temperature, lighting and other services with the touch of a button.

If guests choose to leave the luxury of their suite, the hotel’s beachfront pool is a popular destination. Halekulani also is home to the AAA Five-Diamond La Mer restaurant, as well as the oceanfront Orchids, for dining choices. If a cocktail and a view are what you desire, head to House Without A Key. But if you really want to explore in style, guests in the three Premier Suites are welcome to partake in the Art in Motion amenity program by taking a high-performance luxury car for a spin. Choose from a custom-designed Bentley Continental GTC, Maserati GranTurismo, Lotus Elise or Lotus Exige, and hit the road. Just come back in time to see the romantic sunset from your private lanai.
