Everything about this hotel was great

We visited in September. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Everything about The Kahala is great - from the rooms, to the restaurants, to the grounds, to the great staff. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. And, at the front desk, Carlos was extremely helpful -- made our trip even better!! Thank you Carlos.

Would visit again and the photography was the best.

Kahala resorts were awesome. We stayed for a week and it really helped us relax. everything about it was a great experience. We only hoped there were more activites for us to do in the night and more vegetarian food. We used pacific dream photography services when we were in Oahu, Hawaii and I have all good things to say about it. It was easy to schedule, reschedule. It was raining at the time of schedule and Alexis waited patiently. They were all easy to work with and the price was affordable. The pictures were amazing and I fell in love with them. She cheered up the kid and even with a 20 min schedule she took awesome pictures and we were ready to view in 30 min. Thank you for amazing memories, pacific dream photography.

Wonderful hotel stay and photo session with pacific dream photography

This trip has been so amazing. Our room, 825, has the most amazing tranquil view of palm trees and lulling waves and sand. The attendants here are so friendly and responsive. This hotel truly made us feel special and took care of our two year old daughter. They even gave her a dolphin toy at check in to start us off right foot. The bed is very comfy, the bath and shower feel great, the amenities impressive and the food delicious. We love eating at the plumeria for breakfast each day and then heading out to swim at the beach and in the pool. One of the highlights of our stay was the photo session with pacific dream photography. We were quite pleased with Loryn who took an already incredible landscape and combined it with a fantastic sunset and really creative poses in multiple settings. What was truly impressive is that we have a two year old who wasn't that cooperative for the shoot. I wasn't sure how that would translate until we went to the photo review appointment and had a decent amount of trouble chiseling down the photos because so many were incredible and keepers. We went with the 20 photo package and can't wait to have these memories on our walls at home and shared with our friends and family. Since the photo session was complimentary and appointment to review the photos was very comfortable with no sales pressure, the entire experience was enjoyable with no downside.

On 2 July The Kahala Resort turned on the most stunning day for the most memorable day of our lives! We cannot praise Anna, Cerise & the wider Kahala team enough for making our special day so perfect. If you're ever in Oahu you should make an effort to check out this fabulous property and the class and quality it oozes.@thetravellingroses

Elegant Oceanfront Resort Provides Privacy and Comfort With Style

The Kahala is locally known as the Hollywood of Honolulu. There is a hall with pictures of the rich and famous "names" from around the world who stayed as guests of the Kahala, spanning several decades. The East-Facing beach is ideal for sunrise views or swimming, or weddings. Many, many weddings. The rooms are simply fabulous. All of them are quiet, beautifully decorated, and include advanced Toto Washlet automated bidet systems on the toilet. Generous windows have blackout drapes that fit perfectly. Maid service 2x per day that will spoil you for any other hotel. Four dining options span the gamut from internationally-recognized chefs to simple beachfront meals. The neighborhood is very quiet and safe, with homes (and some international embassy properties) that range in value from $1.7 million to about $34 million. Avid runners should get a jogging map from the reception desk to avoid certain streets that are too narrow for safe pedestrian use. A wide coral reef protects the hotel's beachfront from big waves, making it exceptionally safe and easy for all levels of swimmers. For surfers, the breaks are at least .3 miles out, but paddling in the area is easy. The pod of male Atlantic Bottlenose dolphins in the hotel's integrated dolphin lagoon live their entire lives there, meeting and playing with thousands of human visitors (including, now, me) along with their dedicated, respectful human trainers. The joy and playful intelligence of the dolphins is wonderful to experience up close. The hotel offers familiar luxury services, such as spa, gift shop, room service and so forth, but in each case with distinctive passion for excellence. All of this is only a 10-minute drive from the other Honolulu attractions.
