We live a couple miles from resort and have been a handful of times. Always left feeling relaxed and happy we live in Hawaii. Felt this even more after the past year and a half. Resort beautiful, all employees helpful and genuinely friendly. Special Mahalo to Sean at Seaside Grill and Sandra and Scott at The Verandah.

My fiancé and I chose the Kahala for our elopement and honeymoon. From the moment we spoke with Grace Chan, Director of Catering and Conferences, we knew our expectations for a small elegant and intimate ceremony would be met. Grace and her staff were helpful with making the arrangements and even kept us informed regarding COVID-19 protocols and restrictions. The entire resort staff treated us with a level of hospitality we usually do not experience outside of South Louisiana. Authentic hospitality! Highly recommend!

My wife and I had the BEST experience with the Kahala Hotel in July of this year when we were married on the property and spent a few nights in one of their corner suites. As spectacular as our wedding day was, everything leading up to our wedding was so seamless, especially with all of the pandemic chaos and Hawaii's restrictions on group events. Grace Chan, the Director of Catering, worked with our wedding planner to ensure our big day was a memorable and enjoyable one. They kept us in the loop with all of the Covid related regulations and made ourselves and our guests feel very safe and welcomed. I can't say enough about how great the food was, the service, and the property overall. This coupled with the dedication of the Catering team made our day a huge success despite having to work around pandemic related guidelines. The hotel's remote location just outside of Waikiki makes it feel so much more private and less touristy, but it's only a 10 minute drive to the hustle and bustle of Waikiki if that suits you. Can't recommend this property enough!
