First Class Hotel

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Kahala Hotel & Resort. It is ideally located with its own superb beach-front some twenty minutes away from downtown Honolulu. That isn't a problem by-the-way as the hotel provides a shuttle service into various points in town. Right from the start of our stay we experienced outstanding customer service from all the members of staff we encountered. It was obvious from the onset that all staff are trained to a high level in dealing with their guests, this has to be applauded.Our room was spacious and well equipped. Sleep quality was excellent. Amenities and facilities were top notch. Dining options were good and menu options were interesting and varied. The private beach was splendid. All-in-all we enjoyed our stay immensely. My only personal reservation about the place was the dolphin lagoon. I found it hard to see these beautiful creatures used as a money-making attraction for the hotel. They should be allowed to roam the oceans free, as nature intended.

Thank you Rainui Faatau

Stressful check-in....we had booked a King Lanai Lagoon Room but upon arrival they only had two doubles and that was not ok with us. Long story short we met Rainui a Front Desk Manager who came and showed us several options with his colleague and we were beyond satisfied with views of my dolphins and ocean. He exceeded expectations...they were both soft spoken and refined gentlemen who knew how to please and welcome. I would like to also thank him for the amazing cheese platter that had beautiful soft cheeses and crackers and the grapes were so sweet. We wrapped it up and had again the following day. The champagne was so welcoming.You outdid yourself! We appreciate your handling with such grace and what you did came from sincerity and professionalism.Hotel, food and beach is all one needs.The Kahala has it all right here.

30th Anniversary Trip

Exceptional service, attention to details, impeccable grounds and beach with island flair is what the Kahala is all about. Did not get off to a good start but staff quickly made a room change and the vacation was a huge success. Great food, amazing beach, and a song playing on the TV when you turn it on that will be etched in my memory for ever. Mahalo nui loa and Aloha Kahala until next time.

18th Birthday!!!

Aloha nui,Last night, a portion of our family dined at The Kahala Hotel & Resort at the Plumeria Beach House. We celebrated the 18th Birthday of our second daughter. It was Kama'āina Thursday last night. Wow! What a special treat. It comes with a choice of a main dish, the salad bar and the dessert bar. We appreciate the kind service given by the staff. Mahalo for making our daughter's birthday dinner a special one. We dine at the hotel every once in a while as it has delicious 'ono food, great service and one of the best views in all of O'ahu. If you have a chance to visit, please do. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Aloha!Kama Hopkins

Amazing Visit to The Kahala

Stayed 2 nights..not long enough. Spacious rooms with comfy beds. Bath had a separate tub and walk-in shower. High-tech toilets similar to those found in Japan. Hotel is located on a beautiful stretch of beach. Cordial hotel staff were outstanding. Everyone went the extra mile!The hotel is just a short drive from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. The hotel operates a shuttle if you want to explore the city and then come back to the tranquil beauty of The Kahala.Their "wall of fame" has pictures of famous people who have stayed at The Kahala.. every President since Nixon, Princess Diana, well known entertainers, sports figures and many others. When I saw that Tom Selleck stayed there, I knew I was in the right hotel.Will definitely return to The Kahala on my next trip to Honolulu!
