The Kahala is a special place. It is paradise on earth, from the incredible breakfast (how will I survive without thin pancakes?) to the gorgeous beach, everyone who makes lunch and the day fun (Christina, Alicia, Sean and the team) before the tough decision of dinner. The rooms are gorgeous, like everything else - somehow being absolutely modern while feeling the same and like home over the last 40 years. The days passed so quickly and I can??t wait to return to our Kahala ohana. Mahalo.

Luxurious!!! Located on a beautiful secluded beach, away from the rat-race of Waikiki. The Kahala Hotel is a great get-away. Very peaceful! Rooms are generously sized. The staff of the hotel is amazing! Kerry Kuhl is the BEST !!!! She understands the needs of clientele. Many celebrities and VIP's stay here. We had the greatest time! Highly recommend!

I like the calm atmosphere of Kahala (comparing to waikiki) Their restaurants are very good, the beach is tranquil and the service is very good. The staff is very friendly and nice. It would be great if the hotel had toys to let the kids play on the beach instead of just selling.

This place is off the charts and is a great destination with a very nice quite beach, excellent service all around, nice pool and out door bar. It is expensive not sure if it's worth the price but over all it was a great experience. Just may not ever go back due to the cost....

The Kahala is a formerly grand and discreet hotel attracting all US Presidents since LBJ (not yet Trump), other world leaders and celebrities. There is a wall of photos of such guests which is fun to view. Apart from the Obamas, however, who do still put in appearances, this hotel has dropped off a bit, with the decor and maintenance showing as much, and yet the prices are still high. The staff at the front and bell desks, concierge, formal restaurants and bar tend to be very nice, with some st... Read more

We are from Los Angeles and somehow never knew that everyone from LA goes to this hotel. We knew 4 other families who were visiting this past holiday time. Apparently the hey-day for this property was back in the 80's, but the same folks keep coming back for 30-40 years! So there was a very congenial feel, where everyone sort of knew each other, or at least the regulars. The service is very good and the staff are very friendly (although that is typical for Hawaii and one of the reasons we lov... Read more

This is a resort far from the center of the town. The rooms are spacious with lovely views. The hotel staff is very courteous and efficient. The best part is that the beach is a quiet one. There is a hotel shuttle that takes you into the city regularly, and you can take it back to the hotel, too. Breakfast at the hotel was very good but you have a limited choice of dining around the hotel.
