Halekulani Corporation Completes Renovation of the
453-room Halekulani in Waikiki, Hawaii

WAIKIKI, HI - July 30, 2012 - Halekulani, long-celebrated for providing guests with uniquely personalized service and gracious Hawaiian hospitality, announces the July 2012 completion of a comprehensive physical and service Renewal. Halekulani’s Renewal is based upon Legacy, Culture, Quality and Service, values which have made the property an iconic global destination. New related guest experiences, services, amenities, and epicurean programs will continue to be unveiled throughout the summer and fall of 2012.

“The Renewal of Halekulani provides a unique opportunity for us to reexamine the iconic values that have built its legacy,” said Peter Shaindlin, Chief Operating Officer of Halekulani Corporation. “Drawn from the values that have established the Halekulani brand, the completion of the Renewal reflects our commitment to remain true to the hotel’s original spirit while evolving and enhancing the unique experience for which we have also come to be known; providing our guests with a journey of transcendence and fulfillment that cannot be replicated.”

Each of the 453 rooms and suites has been refreshed to further capture the natural light and airy visual expanses on to the sea. The hotel’s renowned ‘seven shades of white’ color tones have been reinvigorated to emphasize the seaside setting, tropical elements and the spirit evocative of Halekulani. All guestrooms are outfitted with new furnishings, providing a more spacious feel with more contemporary conveniences such as new accessories and amenities, sophisticated lighting design, revitalized bedding and linens, enhanced in-room technology, as well as reconceived new bathrooms and new lanai furniture.

As part of the Renewal, new and enhanced culinary programs and menus are also being unveiled including a unique new bar concept, L’Aperitif at La Mer, newly-styled Afternoon Tea experience, and new menus throughout the property.

The Renewal of Halekulani inaugurates a new era for an icon that will forever remain synonymous with unparalleled quality, excellence and the unrivaled, authentic experience of Hawaii. While Halekulani may continue to evolve, its legacy of excellence will always remain forefront.
