My husband Bill and I spent 8 beautiful days at the Kahala to celebrate my 60th birthday and my 1st trip to Hawaii. I can not even begin to describe how beautiful the hotel was. I am a Virgo and a "clean freak" and I walked the halls and even my room in my bare feet. The room over looked the mountain and to the right was the ocean and below us was the Dolphin Quest lagoon. Every night we had turn down service with fresh towels and bottled water and our robes and slippers laid out for us. The CD played romantic and relaxing Hawaiian music upon our return to the room. We loved having breakfast overlooking the ocean and sitting outside under the Plumeria trees. We had dinner at the Veranda several times and the service was outstanding. Had lunch and drinks at the Seaside Grill and as with all the restaurants the food and service was exemplary! Have seen several reviews that some of the food items were pricey One word HAWAII. How can you put a price on the ambiance of the sun and the ocean and all that is Hawaii. A very special Thank You goes to Cameron Frithsen who planned all our activities from my "bucket list" and was instrumental in making this the best birthday vacation ever. Linda at the front desk for our pain free check in and use of the visitors suite on our last day there. Michael and her trainee ( sorry can't remember her name) who truly went all out to make my birthday special all the way down to a candle and happy birthday written on my dessert. And last but not least our house keepers and turn down service who were friendly, efficient and went above our expectations.
