Warmth and Welcome at the Weekly General Manager's Reception

Every Wednesday at 5:30 p.m., guests are invited to our Hau Terrace for a reception hosted by our staff and General Manager, Mr. Ulrich Krauer for the General Manager’s reception.

This weekly event began years ago as an opportunity for guests to meet the staff as well as other guests. However, it grew so popular that it soon became a tradition.

Guests enjoy appetizers and a complimentary drink, then can stroll onto the terrace, which overlooks Waikiki Beach and provides a stunning, unobstructed view of Diamond Head. It’s the perfect backdrop to a relaxed and welcoming gathering.

Along with our General Manager, other members of our staff look forward to the weekly event as an opportunity to meet new guests and reconnect with those who return year after year. “It’s a way for us to experience ‘ohana’ or family, which is what our guests become,” says Patricia Tam, Chief Executive Advisor. “We are now meeting the children and the grandchildren of our guests who have been staying with us through the decades. It’s such an enriching part of our time here at Halekulani.”

The General Manager’s reception is a cherished tradition here at Halekulani. We invite all our guests to share in the spirit of ohana, and join us each Wednesday evening, to meet their fellow guests and staff and to watch the sun set over the Pacific from the spectacular location of our “house befitting heaven”.
