Very disappointed

When imagining a vacation in HAWAII I'm sure you think of pristine beaches and lounging on gorgeous beach. The Kahala has a nice location away from the bustle of Waikiki. However they are absurd charging 65$ to sit in a beach chair with shade. This really impacted the mood of our stay. Each time we wanted to relax we were forced to sit in direct sunlight. They were soo kind to allow us to use the complementary pool chairs. However when we tried to put up the shade they said it wasn't allowed on a windy day. Interesting that only the ones you pay for are allowed. As a native to HAWAII this experience is so disappointing and doesn't foster the aloha spirit of the island. Room: dated, dirty carpetGrounds: please release the dolphins. I thought we were past making these incredible animals perform for tourist.

A Fantastic Stay at the beautiful Kahala Resort

Gorgeous sunset glow view of Kokohead, and great food

Loved the view over the ocean off to Kokohead with the clouds reflecting the sunset. We sat at the Veranda for dinner - great food and lovely view. Service throughout the hotel was superior. Cute benches oceanside to drink morning coffee and read the paper.

Loved our wedding at the Kahala!

We had a wonderful stay at the Kahala. We were married here on the Diamond Head Lawn with lunch after in the Kahala O Ke Kai room on Saturday and we found all of the staff to be friendly and helpful. Timely requests were answered and everything went smoothly. Our event coordinator was amazing. She is such a sweet and genuine person and was always professional and responsive to email, calls, and questions. Her kind demeanor was very calming and we were never stressed on our wedding day!We felt the wedding packages were a good value. They have an excellent list of preferred vendors. Our vendors knew the hotel staff, property, and each other well. Helped to make our celebration go smoothly and as though we were part of a big family!Catering staff were impressive! They were helpful with our special requests with my grandma and were always checking in with us without feeling overbearing. Food and cake were fantastic. I was surprised that the catering staff was able to exactly replicate a photo of a wedding cake I admired!Housekeeping did a wonderful job with turndown and left our orchid Lei in hearts on our bed and even folded our clothes! So many sweet attentive touches did not go unnoticed!Room service staff were friendly and timely. Room was very spacious with lovely decor. We utilized our lanai - enjoyed having snacks and a breakfast with our view. We had a scenic view room but I could still see Koko Head and the ocean from the lanai. We had two meals at Hoku's and enjoyed both immensely! The night before our wedding my mom and I had tea at the Veranda and very much enjoyed their live music.Although our wedding was very small, everyone made us feel as though we were VIP. We are truly touched and grateful to the Kahala for helping to create such s special weekend for us.

Paradise !

My third stay at The Kahala and once again it was lovely. All the staff members, from the restaurants to housekeeping, continue to impress and couldn't be more friendly or helpful. The large rooms (especially with a lanai) make it feel more like an apartment than a hotel and the double bathroom amenities are wonderful. I particularly love the "old world" feel of the place but a bit more maintenance wouldn't go astray especially as our balcony railings were showing a fair bit of rust. We did the canoeing this time which was great fun - especially seeing numerous turtles popping their heads out of the water near the reef. The only downside of this resort is the captive dolphins forced to perform tricks for tourists. I was especially distressed when one was forced to beach itself on a pontoon for the enjoyment of a paying customer. I thought we were past this sort of stuff in this day and age............
