A premium resort hotel enclosed by breathtaking Okinawan nature

Halekulani Okinawa

Halekulani Okinawa is a paradisiacal resort hotel, awarded five stars in the Forbes Travel Guide 2022, that truly lives up to the origin of its name: "House of Befitting Heaven" in the Hawaiian language. The famed opulence and hospitality of the original Halekulani, established over a century ago on Waikiki Beach, Honolulu, can be enjoyed in southernmost Japan. The setting combines breathtaking ocean views with the lush surroundings of the Okinawa Kaigan Quasi-National Park.

The hotel is located in Onna, an idyllic coastal region of the Okinawa main island famed for its prestigious resorts. The area suits full-comfort stays where every desire is accommodated on the premises; and more energetic visits focussed on exploring Okinawa’s renowned marine environment through activities including diving, snorkeling, and kayaking.

Guest rooms, each boasting a terrace with a view out over the blue expanse of the East China Sea, feature stylishly understated design intended to amplify the tranquil natural beauty of their surroundings. An eclectic dining offering includes SHIROUX, where the menu is filled with delicious seasonal Okinawan cuisine masterfully guided by consulting chef Hiroyasu Kawate, the owner of Florilege in Tokyo, a two-star Michelin restaurant and recipient of the Michelin Green Star Award for its sustainable practices. The hotel also operates AOMI, a gourmet space for the enjoyment of the finest ingredients nurtured by the beautiful skies, ocean, and mountains of Okinawa combined with the flavors of the freshest seasonal produce from all over Japan.
