Halekulani Okinawa


Along a mile of stunning white-sand coastline on Japan’s Okinawa Island (known for its vitality and Blue Zone status) is the luxurious, life-affirming resort Halekukani Okinawa. Set in the picturesque Onna Village and surrounded by the subtropical Kaigan Quasi-National Park, the setting alone is enough to be considered paradise. But the resort’s 310 guest rooms and 45 suites with balconies overlooking the emerald sea below elevate it further still – expect sleek, minimalistic décor by world-renowned Champalimaud Design incorporating Halekulani's "Seven Shades of White" identity concept. Four signature restaurants and a chic cocktail bar cater to your every whim, inviting guests to gaze out at the majestic Okinawa sunset while sipping one of Halekulani’s signature mai tais. Days at Halekulani Okinawa can be spent relaxing at any of its five pools – the crowning jewel is the spectacular Orchid Pool, embellished with 1.5 million sparkling mosaic tiles – and at its SpaHalekulani that melds Hawaiian and Japanese healing practices. Or partake in pastimes from active diving and snorkeling classes to artistic Shisa painting and Sanshin workshops where you can try your hand at Okinawan’s native three-stringed musical instrument. A promise of the tranquility and ethereal wonders where you can connect to the island’s ancient soul, that’s Halekulani Okinawa.


Halekulani Okinawa has 310 standard guest rooms (538 square feet) and 45 suites (818 to 3,164 square feet), which are all equipped with large sliding glass doors that lead to a private balcony overlooking the stunning emerald sea.

With seven room types available in the Beach Front Wing and Sunset Wing, guests can choose the best type to suit their preferred style and experience. There are also five spacious private villas (either the one-bedroom Cliff Villa or the two-bedroom Halekulani Cliff Villa) dotted along the property’s clifftop that offer more privacy and exclusivity, each of which has its own heated pool and onsen, a bath with natural hot springs.

The resort’s interiors are designed by the world-renowned Champalimaud Design, with sleek, minimalistic décor and just seven shades of white for the color scheme. The simple elegance of the rooms allows the crystalline ocean and lush natural surroundings to take centerstage. Guests staying in Halekulani Cliff Villas, Cliff Villas and Premier Club Ocean Front rooms have exclusive access to the Club Lounge and terrace, where they can enjoy breakfast, afternoon tea, and drinks. While the Sunset Wing of the resort has the best views of Okinawa’s famous glowing orange sunsets, The Beachfront Wing has the best direct ocean views.

Regardless of where a guest chooses to stay, they are guaranteed a luxurious haven of rest and relaxation with a truly incredible backdrop. Room amenities include coffee and espresso makers, a refrigerator, complimentary Wi-Fi and internet access, and Bose Bluetooth speakers.
