This week, Halekulani Okinawa – Halekulani’s second hotel – opened for reservations for guests arriving from 26 July 2019.
Located in Onna Village on the main island of Okinawa, the destination is home to some of Japan’s most beautiful beaches. The resort faces approximately 1.7 kilometres of coastline and features 360 rooms, each with a picturesque ocean view. There are five villas, which have their own private pools and natural hot-spring bath.
Situated in the Okinawa Kaigan Quasi-National Park, the resort is set among lush Okinawan trees, and the eye is drawn into the glistening sea and greenery amid the sound of waves crashing on the beach.
Halekulani Okinawa guests will be able to enjoy a diverse array of facilities, such as a swimming pool adorned with Halekulani’s signature mosaic of a Cattleya orchid, a spa offering wellness programs using natural hot springs and four restaurants and bars featuring world-class dining experiences.
The new hotel will also carry on the unique service philosophy established by Halekulani over its century-long history, providing uncompromising service that surpasses the expectations of guests. Halekulani aims to be a leading international luxury resort brand that reflects the beauty and culture of its locale.

Among Asia’s most acclaimed chefs, Kawate is the owner and chef at Florilège in Tokyo, whose two Michelin stars and No. 3 place on the ‘Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2018’ list attract food lovers from across the globe.
Other restaurants include Aomi, which serves Japanese cuisine using fresh ingredients from the Okinawa region; the à la carte Kingdom Steak & Wine, which dishes up select meats from Japan and afar; all-day dining venue House Without a Key, which adopts its name from Halekulani Hawaii; and Bar Spectra.
