A great hotel to stay in if you want a lovely sandy beach away from the maddening crowds of Waikiki. Especially good for children, dolphin pool attraction (not just performing for guests but also great work being carried out by marine biologists). Large rooms, great king size beds, lovely linen & large bathrooms with separate dressing tables. A classic hotel,... More

We arrived at the hotel and were blown away by how beautiful the grounds and interior are. Great location away from Waikiki and Honolulu, but close enough that you can get to all the restaurants and fun events. The room was some comfy and homey. It was a decent size and the views from the scenic rooms are amazing. Another... More

My sons wedding was here. Yes, the wedding was almost perfect. Worth every penny. Beautiful and relatively easy. Expensive, but worth it. Accommodations are very expensive for what you get. Rooms and amenities are clean, but not updated. At least not in my room. I paid for weeklong accommodations for five rooms. I actually asked for an upgrade. First, I... More

We've been to Hawaii many times, but this is our first stay at the Kahala. It won't be our last. Beautiful hotel with first class service. Our room is large, with a comfortable king size bed. Bathroom is more than roomy, with separate dressing tables and closets for 2 people. Linens are wonderful. Our room overlooked the golf course and... More

The Kahala is even better than advertised - it's own private beach is beautiful and the pool area is lovely too. The staff are so helpful and do everything to make your stay amazing.

A lovely and relaxing hotel. Away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki, welcoming and inviting "Ohana" atmosphere. I would definitely return again (if I can afford it) and sepnd more time enjoying all of the amenities (pool, ocean side, sprots acitivities, dolphin pool, dining, etc..)
