An opening date of 25 October 2019 has been announced for Halekulani’s new sister property, Halepuna Waikiki by Halekulani. What was formerly the Waikiki Parc is mid-way through an extensive refurbishment and upgrade that commenced in October last year. Billed as “the first luxury boutique hotel in Waikiki”, bookings are now being accepted on the property’s newly launched website – www.halepuna.com.
Halepuna Waikiki has also released the first images and additional artist impressions of what guests can expect inside when the property opens in six months time.
On the eighth floor is home to a brand-new oasis offering guests an array of amenities including the Infinity Pool and Sun Deck, Cabana Refreshers, The Gardens, and a fitness studio featuring cutting-edge fitness machines.
The property has 284 rooms and four suites and will offer seven room categories, ranging from a Standard Waikiki View through to the Grand Ocean Suite, a luxurious one-bedroom suite which offers commanding (and unobstructed) of the Pacific Ocean from all angles.
Guests can book the Halepuna Waikiki’s ‘Especially for You’ amenity back, which includes guaranteed anytime check-in, 4pm late check-out, breakfast for two, complimentary room upgrade (subject to availability at time of booking and excuding upgrades from Deluxe Ocean View Room and all suites) and daily resort credit that can be utilised at Halekulani Bakery & Restaurant, Halepuna Pool Bar, and select venues at sister property, Halekulani – located adjacent to Halepuna Waikiki.
Halekulani Bakery & Restaurant is the hotel’s full-service, all-day casual dining concept with a locally-inspired menu focused on using indigenous ingredients. This newest of Halekulani restaurants will feature a variety of pastries, cakes and artisan breads created by a baker from the renowned Imperial Hotel Tokyo.
“Engaging our guests in the local culture and sincere service is of the utmost importance, from the moment the guests book their stay until the moment we say ‘a hui hou…until we meet again,’” said Halepuna Waikiki General Manager Julie Arigo. “We look forward to welcoming guests for their anticipated stay at Waikiki’s exciting new luxury boutique hotel.”
Rates at Halepuna Waikiki by Halekulani vary from US$350 to US$1,100 per night.
The hotel’s website is also offering the options for consumers to book combined hotel and flight packages.
