We stayed at the Kahala for one night of our vacation in order to stay in a Dolphin Lanai room. My sister had done this on her honeymoon years ago and wanted us to have the experience. During the daytime hours we loved this hotel. The Hawaiian music CD in the room was a nice touch. The room was gorgeous... More

We have visited some 53 Countries and stopped in hotels in all these places but probably for the first time, 5 Star at the Kahala actually meant a 5 Star experience. From the time we got out the taxi from the airport and the Bell boy took our bags, to the time he put them back in a week later... More

I was hesitant when we pulled up - the outside of hotel is... More

We stayed at the Kahala for two nights before flying over to Maui. We booked a 1 bedroom partial ocean view suite and were thrilled with our accommodations. We were warmly welcomed upon check in and then escorted to our suite by the manager. Our suite was a corner unit with a beautiful view of the golf course, dolphin lagoon... More

Had a week at the Kahala in August 2008 as part of our honeymoon trip. It was meant as a relaxing stop in between Las Vegas and San Francisco...and it was pretty much perfect! We had a garden room opening on to the golf course and being our honeymoon I may have dropped a few hints prior to our arrival... More

We didn't stay here, but remembered this place as tourists when my wife and I visited Oahu, before our daughter was born. It has an accessible beach which is excellent and the water is warmer than Waikiki. Also, it has a little kids pool that our two year old, stayed in for hours and hours. Last but not least, there...

very nice resort, secluded beach. Staff are friendly. The room is big and very clean. I really like the fact that they have housekeeping service often enough to keep our room clean and well supplied with towels, shampoo, even leave water bottles for us (for free!).

If you're looking for a resort away from the chaos of Waikiki, this is it. You feel like this is your own private resort. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Staff is wonderful and friendly. It is a bit pricey, but the food and atmosphere is second to none. Shuttles are available to take you into Waikiki. Just a wonderful experience.

The most beautiful ocean view and a most charming olde world hotel with a unique dolphin pool - Need I say more! Warm, friendly and helpful staff everywhere added to the delightful experience.
