A Tropical Hawaiian Paradise in Okinawa
An offshoot of the famous Hawaiian hotel, the Halekulani Okinawa marries the very best in hospitality of both cultures.
The iconic Orchid pool.
The west coast of Okinawa Island is known for its classic tropical island-scape.
Unsurprisingly, this has led to major hotels setting up along the coast, one of which being the Okinawan offspring of the Hawaiian-born Halekulani.
Featuring a seemingly endless array of different pools, several upscale suites and villas, beach access, and a full assortment of activities, Halekulani Okinawa has everything you have come to expect from a luxurious beach-front resort.
Add to this the trademark hospitality that combines Hawaiian and Okinawan island charm, and you have a special experience.
Finally, the architecture that ensures you will have a perfect view of the pristine sunset that this area of Okinawa is known for is another thing to note.

For a more private stay, the villas featuring pools and hot springs are recommended.
