The Kahala Hotel & Resort
- What's Included
Had a mommy-daughter breakfast date on Saturday morning at the Plumeria Beach House on the Kahala Resort property. Everything was amazing......the food selection, taste of the food, the service from hostess to waiters & manager and my coffee was excellent. My daughter ordered an Acai bowl from the menu and she loved it! The kitchen staff was constantly replenishing the foods on the buffet line and the omelette bar was fantastic. We will definitely be back to visit the breakfast buffet again, with the rest of the family. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience!
From the moment you arrive you just know this is somewhere special. The welcome from the bell hop team and reception (Noel) was just lovely and seemed so genuine. The room (we had a scenic lanai king room) was beautiful- lots of space and very comfortable. The scenic rooms are looking over the Wailea golf course and the mountains with all the houses - it was lovely to sit & watch the world go by while relaxing on the balcony. If you have time get a spa treatment- best ever and the treatment rooms are beautiful. The beach is an oasis of calm - great for an early morning swim and so easy to stroll there from the hotel. The breakfast was nice - eggs cooked to order & plenty of fruit / breads & hot food to choose from. We ate in Plumeira, seaside bar, the veranda and Hokus. All were nice although we expected Hokus to be just a bit more special than it was. Overall though we wanted a relaxing & really special holiday that felt like a treat and the Kahala didn't disappoint. We are already planning our return there!
Dolphins in captivity is wrong.No, I mean NO beach service: food or beach boys. They are available, they just don't do anything.The building is an iconic architectural masterpiece from the early 60's.Magnificent lobby. Tall ceilings, bright and airy rooms. Certainly pay extra for ocean front/views room...that's why you came to Hawaii.Quiet and peaceful away from the noxious noise and crazy crowds of waikiki.No surf here as beach is in a very calm lagoon.Water sports rentals available-- sups, etc.Negatives:1. No Beach boys never-ever were found on the sand. We had to find them huddling together at their stand. They only left the stand to set umbrellas or gather chairs at end of day--watched it for 4 days.2. $30 for an umbrella-- then a beach boy would leave the stand, drill the hole, place umbrella and disappear back only to be scene again as they gathered up chairs at end of day.3. No food service on the sand-- we had to go up each day and place orders. Eventually they would deliver. Never found them on the sand (4 days)4. Overpriced breakfast buffet was nothing special.5. Needless to say, the dolphin cage/petting pond is so wrong as to be almost criminal. Even seaworld is ending that type of horrible captivity. Free the dolphins and end that exhibit.We never took the trolley into town---we always ubered in for foodie dining ( see my reviews). Hoku restaurant looked uptight and too formal.Peaceful and serene and on the sand-- there's a only couple of choices for hotels like this (lotus).Glad we came and tried it, but probably won't return.
From the moment you set foot on property you are in for an amazing pampering. The staff of The Kahala really make you feel like royalty. Located off the beaten path of Waikiki The Kahala is a hidden gem on the island of Oahu. The rooms are spacious and elegantly clean. Every attention to detail has been considered for an optimal relaxation experience. Linens are soft and comforting. The soft comfortable beds embrace you for the best sleep that I've had on any vacation and the rooms are quiet as the Hotel is far enough away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. I personally appreciate that in the evening, you can lightly hear the ocean waves washing up on the sand. The view of the Pacific Ocean is breath taking, and if you are lucky and are there at the right season you can see whales all the way out to the horizon. The white sand and beach is so fine to walk on barefoot. The water sparkles every morning and we were able to get amazing sunrises every morning of our stay. But what really made this experience over the top was the dining options. Though the breakfast buffet in the Plumeria Beach House is amazing with a large spread and made to order omelets, our real treat was Hoku's the fine dining restaurant. As you walk in staff greet you by name and you are seated at a table with a sunset view of the ocean. It was recommended by a friend that we try the 7 course Tasting Menu and I'm glad I did. If you like seafood Chef Wayne created a wonderful spread. I especially like the Petite Hamachi Poke Don, the Poached Half Lobster and Chef’s Signature “Kahala Wrap”. All flavors are fresh and well designed. The seafood is perfectly cooked and special care is taken to assure an optimal flavor and savory experience. Overall 5 stars is not enough to express the amazing weekend we had. Thank you Kahala. We'll be back soon.
Had the Seafood dinner buffet at the Plumeria House on Friday evening. Very happy with the fresh seafood selection and prime rib carving station. Definitely satisfied my craving for seafood! The buffet was well stocked and wait staff was very attentive. Will be back! Mahalo!
