The Kahala is tucked away from the overwhelming crowds at other hotels in Honolulu as well as in many of the major hotels on the other islands. The hotel boasts old style charm, the lobby is beautifully furnished, all the staff are professional and gracious, and the rooms have a feeling of warmth and comfort. It's lovely to sit on one's balcony and enjoy morning coffee while overlooking the ocean and beach as well as the dolphins playing in the pool (assuming you get a room with an ocean view), or in the evenings watching the sunset with a glass of wine. The beach is beautiful and uncrowded; often you get to enjoy a fabulous wedding of a beautiful Japanese couple with their family. The buffet breakfasts are sumptuous with awesome fresh fruit and tropical juices. The concierge staff are all gracious, professional, and accessible -- one of the lovely concierge's helped us with our plans daily and was often willing to refresh our leis -- Susan was wonderful!!!! The hotel registration staff was also pleasant and accommodating. I'm so happy we took the concierge's advice to hire a private sedan for airport transportation! A shuttle bus takes you into Waikiki for shopping and dining throughout the day (so very appreciated!!!!). I chose the Kahala as a special vacation destination to take my sister there for her first trip to Hawaii. She was overwhelmed with the entire experience, and I'm so happy I chose The Kahala to share Hawaii with her. This was my 3rd visit and I'll always go back when staying in Oahu!

We stayed at the Kahala for a medical conference. The resort is beautiful without being over the top. The staff was excellent, courteous and attentive. The rooms were large and comfortable. There is a lot of history at this resort but it does not overwhelm you with its luxury or size. It is expensive. There is a small pool and the beach is just a few yards away. The ocean water is nice and calm due to the reef offshore, perfect for paddle boarding or swimming. There are several restaurants but no easy grab and go option for breakfast or lunch. We enjoyed our stay but wished there were easier options for breakfast other than the main restaurant. I would stay here again.

We travelled here for our honeymoon for a couple of nights in Honolulu before our cruise around the South Pacific. The checkin staff were a little curt and even though they knew it was our honeymoon, we didn't get any sort of acknowledgement. Pretty poor really. The room we paid for cost a small fortune and didn't even include breakfast (we found this out when we got there). It didn't even occur to us that breakfast wouldn't be included for a £650 a night hotel. Our fault for not double checking though. In the hotel's defence, they did give us free breakfast for the two mornings we were there, so in the end I guess it was a nice thing to do. The room was stunning - again it was the room we paid for, but we were really disappointed not to get an upgrade, especially as the hotel was not sold out. The first morning we were there, my lovely hubby jumped downstairs to reserve a cabana on the beach. He was charged $100 by a member of staff from The Khahala. When we came back to our room and told me what happened I lost the plot! Number one, we didn't realise that they charge you money to sit on the flaming beach if you want an umbrella in Honolulu, but $100 for the cabana?! Eh no! Turns out that it was half that price to reserve one and the member of staff had pocketed the money. I'm sure you can imagine we were furious with the hotel and arguing with members of management on the first day of our honeymoon was not the start we were looking for. We got our money back but seriously saddened that this happened to us. From that moment on we had a pretty sour taste in our mouths about the hotel. While there we made the best of it, but I would not recommend staying there. Another thing: The dolphin pool is shockingly small. As a massive animal lover this should be shut down. You'll see how small it is when you get there. The pool for humans is the smallest hotel pool I've ever seen (hmm is that so you go and sit at the beach to get conned out of $100?). Not impressive. The hotel is tired in areas and needs a bit of a facelift. I would not return to this hotel.

We had the pleasure of staying at the Kahala Resort for two nights, with one of those nights being our wedding night. We actually got married at the beach right outside of the resort. We were having a hectic and stressful day, but the moment we checked in, Gina made everything amazing for us. She really took great care of us and we are so appreciative of her! Kahala is lucky to have her. Everything about our stay was magical. Really felt like paradise between the incredible beach, beautiful amenities inside and out and amazing staff. I can’t wait to stay here again (hoping for a future anniversary trip!)
