Hale Koa Hotel to begin reopening June 1st

The Hale Koa Hotel will reopen on June 1st for authorized guests residing on the island of Oahu with a special month of June leisure travel promotion starting at $99 per night.

The Hotel will reopen in stages with some of the normal amenities and vacation services such as pools, fitness center and dine in restaurants not available until Hawaii state and Military guidelines allow these services to resume.  Initial occupancy will be limited to 50% of the Hotel’s 818 rooms.

The health and safety of guests and staff will be a top priority. Hand-sanitizer stations have been installed in high traffic areas (restaurants, lobbies, elevators, etc.).  Appropriate protective equipment has been provided to employees and the staff has been trained on new standards and expectations related to hygiene, cleanliness, social distancing and safety.  Guests will be asked to bring their own masks to be worn at all times in common areas and to observe physical distancing guidelines.

The Hale Koa plans to expand availability to off island leisure travel as soon as conditions related to COVID-19 permit and current travel restrictions to Hawaii are lifted.

Hale Koa Hotel will close in response to the Coronavirus, with exception of official travel (PSC/TDY).

The safety of our guests and staff is our primary concern at AFRC Resorts. Hale Koa Hotel will temporarily close to ensure the health and well-being of service members and their families during the COVID-19 crisis.

It is now apparent that this crisis requires collective action to slow its progression in the United States. Guests will be asked to return to their home station as soon as they can make the necessary travel arrangements. We are waiving any cancellation or early departure fees for reservations during this time.

There have been no reported cases of COVID-19 at Hale Koa. 

Hale Koa Hotel will continue to accept official travel (PCS/TDY). No new off island reservations until September 1st. We will continue to closely monitor the situation in coordination with the state of Hawaii’s mandates and will make a determination to reopen when it is safe for our guests and staff.

We will continue to support our staff and military community the best we can during this temporary closure. If you have questions regarding your reservation, please email us at

We encourage all of our military guests to limit their travel during this time. We look forward to welcoming you and your family back to the Hale Koa to enjoy the beach, the pool, and our aloha spirit in the very near future.
