The Kahala resort has everything, including heated toilets. The rooms are very elegant. There's a spa, fitness center with yoga (including SUP yoga), several restaurants. The best feature is the beach access. It provides a wonderful escape from the bustle of Waikiki but they provide a shuttle to the Ala Moana mall and Waikiki area for the times that you actually want to leave the beach. While the dolphin area is popular with children, I found it sad to have all those dolphins confined to su... Read more

We did not realise when booking our holiday that the Sony Golf Open would be played at the Waialae Golf Club, which is just a three minute walk from the Kahala. It was a fantastic privilege to be staying in the same hotel as some of the best golfers in the world. My wife and I are also golfers and our room overlooked the 10th and 18th fairways and greens which was so exciting. The hotel was in a beautiful spot alongside the beach with various restaurants to choose from to eat. The decor in the m... Read more

We are a family of five, with a 17, 13 and 10 year old. We were at the Kahala for three nights over Christmas, after spending a week on the Big Island at the Mauna Kea. In this review, I will provide some thoughts not only about the Kahala, but also that contrast the Kahala with the Mauna Kea to provide some comparison between two of Hawaii‚??s classic resorts. The Kahala, as most know, is well situated in an upscale residential neighborhood about a 10-15 minute drive from the hustle and bust... Read more

This was our first visit to The Kahala, the last time we visited we stayed at the Halekalani however this time we wanted to be away from Waikiki Beach. We booked dolphin rooms - a two storey wing of the hotel. We loved our rooms. With large balconies each morning and evening we would watch the dolphins being fed and exercised and the beach was just 2 minutes from our rooms. There is a nice pool with a jacuzzi - good and hot but to be fair we spent most of the time on the beach going for walks an... Read more

This was our third stay at the Kahala and it never disappoints. We got married there four years ago and were amazed by the staff work ethic and how they made our day so memorable. They have maintained this level of service throughout our stays and it is always lovely to catch up with Grace who did and amazing job with our wedding. Also appreciate Carlos's help on the front desk during two of our three stays. We were heading out very early the day we left and he was able to organise us room servi... Read more

Recently had a 2 day stay at the Kahala as a treat to myself for my 60th and I really loved it. The foyer area was grand and open with a beautifully decorated Christmas tree standing tall and proud in the lobby as you entered. Also other beautiful Christmas decorations adorned the hotel as well with more Christmas decorations and trees downstairs. Our room was huge and overlooked the golf course. The bathroom was also big with 2 basins which worked well - 1 for each of us. Our room was spot... Read more

Traveling from Australia to New Orleans for the holidays with a almost 2 year old toddler is no easy task, but we always look forward to our Kahala break on the way back home. From housekeeping staff who seem to always know when exactly to clean our room (the early turn downs are much apreciated) to exceptional Bell and Valet staff (our car was always out front before we could walk up - we never had to wait) - the Kahala makes the stay experience so easy. I also wanted to give a special thank ... Read more

For those searching for a quiet intimate spot away from the hustle and bustle of Honolulu The Kahala is it. The property is beautiful and well maintained. Check in was seamless until we went to verify the type of package we had purchased. It took two trips to the front desk, us calling Delta and then Delta having to call us back to rectify the situation. When the hotel called back we found it odd that they just blamed Delta. . . Same thing happened when we asked for a new hair dryer. . . They ha... Read more
