HISTORY                      The original Halekulani began in 1907 as a residential hotel
                             called “Hau Tree” owned by Robert Lewers. It consisted of a
                             beachfront home and five bungalows.

                             In 1917, Juliet and Clifford Kimball purchased the hotel,
                             gradually expanded it and established it as a stylish resort for
                             wealthy vacationers and named it Halekulani, which means
                             “House Befitting Heaven.” A name bestowed upon the now
                             iconic hotel by Hawaiian fishermen of the 1900’s.

                             In the1930s, the Kimballs tore down the old Lewers Home and
                             replaced it with a plantation mansion-style Main Building with a
                             high-pitched hip roof to catch the cooling trade winds. Also
                             known as the “Dickey” roof, it is a trademark of Hawaii’s
                             legendary architect C.W. Dickey.

                             Following the Kimballs’ passing, the Norton Clapp family of
                             Seattle bought Halekulani in 1962 with its Main Building and 37
                             one-and two-story bungalows and sold it in 1981 to Mitsui
                             Fudosan (USA), Inc. which formed the Honolulu-based division,
                             Halekulani Corporation. The hotel was then closed and the
                             aging bungalows demolished to make way for a world-class

                             Today, the historic Main Building has been restored and
                             preserved along with coconut palms and a century-old Kiawe
