My husband and I held our wedding ceremony here, diamond head lawn. Their hospitality, services were all nice and we are so glad that all of our guests enjoyed everything about this beautiful location.

We went to Hawaii for my cousins wedding and stayed at the Kahala hotel afterwards. It is a fantastic hotel, great service, a bit pricy but I thought it was worth it. The beach next to the hotel is a great place to go fly fishing for bonefish. Very nice quiet place to go

Having first been to New York and Vegas, this was a perfect end to our holiday. The Kahala exceeded all of our expectations and we would so love to return. The staff were amazing and the facilities were top notch. We liked being away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki and the dining options were great. Having our own... More

The resort is very nice and has first class amenities. It's location is secluded in a residential community which is nice if you want to avoid the hectic Waikiki vibe. Our room was large and had a large balcony and bathroom. The only downside is the resort is very expensive and charges for amenities often included at other hotels. For... More

I have been visiting the Kahala for the last 15 years. It was delightful back then, but it has only gotten better. This is what I imagine true luxury to be. The staff was warm and welcoming throughout our whole stay. The entire hotel is gorgeous, especially our room. The breakfast was beyond extravagant! Even though the hotel has a... More

Beautiful resort. From the check in to the fruit platter in the room for our 33rd anniversary everything was top notch. We had a room overlooking the golf course and the ocean on an angle. The lanai/ terrace was great to sit outside and have a drink or read a book. The dolphin lagoon was pretty cool and if I... More

What a superb experience . A beautiful elegant hotel on a stunning stretch of coastline . Our standard room was enormous and luxuriously furnished with a bathroom bigger than most hotel bedrooms. We had a bottle of champagne and a birthday cake waiting for us in our room when we arrived in acknowledgement that our visit was to celebrate our... More

This was my first visit to Hawaii and my first, but definitely NOT my last, stay at The Kahala. I was amazed just driving up to the front of property. The moment I stepped out of the car I was made to feel like I was coming home. The staff greeting was warm and welcoming and the Lobby is gorgeous.... More

This hotel is away from the Waikiki crowd in a really nice part of Oahu which is mainly residential. the restaurants a very good, my wife loved the spa and has a dolphin park which is not crowded since it's only by reservation ( if you have small kids it's great for them ). The rooms are nice but the... More

Thank you Kahala for making our honeymoon the most amazing two weeks of our lives. Where do I start….a bottle of champagne awaiting us in our room, upgrade to the full breakfast, a resort credit to celebrate their 50th anniversary and every single member of staff being so friendly and helpful. To be honest I could go on and on... More
