  • tif y : Los Angeles, California

The Kahala has been one of my favorite hotels since I can remember. The entire hotel is fabulous: from the ocean views, floral decor, perfect cross breeze, rooms, and hotel grounds (including the dolphins, golf course, and beach). What I love most about the Kahala is the location-- while not far from the "city" and touristy things to do, it never feels crowded, stiff, or stuffy-- it's picturesque: always kept clean and up-to-date, is welcoming, and has attentive service. Simply a fine resort, and love this place for all occasions: solo, family, friends, romantic.. 5 stars.

Wonderful Resort with Excellent Service

We just came back from a 5 night stay and could not be happier with our experience. Pros:-Front desk service is excellent - so friendly and on point-Carlos, our check in representative, even sent us a bottle of champagne and chocolate dipped strawberries to celebrate my husbands birthday! This was not expected and we have never received this type unprompted generosity anywhere!-Valet staff were extremely professional, speedy, and friendly-Beautiful beach on the property-Beach rentals and cabanas were convenient and reasonably priced-Housekeeping staff were very detailed -Spacious rooms with LED TVs, strong A/C, and fast stable internet-No resort fee -Parking reasonably priced-Room service was on time and convenient -Onsite dolphin quest -Quiet area with convenient mall nearbyNeutral:-Beachside service was kind of slow-Mattresses and pillows were really soft (may be a Pro for some)Cons:-Seriously no water pressure at all in showers---slow drip at best The self parking lot is kind of small with the top two floors closed off for valet so it sort of forces you into using valet. Valet costs the same as self parking and was very professional except that there isn't an ATM that dispenses small bills or a change machine onsite. We found ourselves having to get cash back offsite in order to tip for the various excellent service around the resort. Just be prepared in this respect beforehand. The property is very private and quiet despite having a lot going on. We were never disturbed by room noise. There were several weddings and construction that took place onsite during our stay as well, and it didn't impact our stay. We were between Aulani, Four Seasons, and the Kahala and at so glad we chose to stay here. The service at this resort is what sets it apart and makes for all the difference.

Casual visitor to lounges on beach

I found this resort by accident. We visited their beachfront lounges with bar and food service to your lounge with a buzzer. Of course they are a private beach and the daily hire is fair. Protected waters to swim in from a natural rock shelf in the distance. We will visit here again for a quiet day of good drink, food and relaxation. The valet parking is complimentary for guests, at least it was when we hired a lounge. I never would have known if it wasn't for the valet taking a few minutes to show us what was on offer. The valet must be well trained in hospitality, it shows.

Spectacular experience!

This hotel and location are simply beyond dreamy and fabulous! This is the second time we've stayed at The Kahala and it was perfect, again! We never left the room or balcony! It's situated between Diamond and Koko Head volcanos with the most pristine and beautiful beach in front of you. Totally private and steps away. There are lots of children however, with all the activities the staff has for them, it was wonderful to watch the kids explore the dolphins, fish and ocean. I was very surprised at how quite and serene it was during the day. The food in any of the restaurants is excellent and they were extremely accommodating with my health issues. It's like being with family from the moment you check in. Don't even think about it; just go!!!!!!

Quiet location away from the bustle of Waikiki

We've been visiting this property for the past decade. This is our first time with our newborn. Because of the "private beach" and tranquility, the property is perfect for the baby to experience Hawaii and the ocean. The room is dated. It's time for them to update them. I also feel that the service level has dropped over the years. The bell persons and the valet are great but the restaurant staff aren't as friendly comparatively.
