From the website, it seemed like this place was too good to be true. The balinese style bathrooms and the infinity pools looked too good online. But when we got here, Kahuna Beach Resort really delivered! The staff asked me for my name upon checking in and they called me by my first name the entire stay which made me... More

This resort is even better than expected. This is truly a luxurious resort int eh La Union coast. For those who are semi-budget conscious, the apartments are spacious and comfortable with working air conditioning. If you like to cook, use Unit 1. And bring a Thunderbolt to HDMI cord or AppleTV as the TV choices are limited. The resort is... More

It was raining when we arrived in Kahuna and the parking lot was muddy, but upon entering the resort I was amazed by the beautiful garden and the reception area. I booked an apartment with 2 bedrooms, sala, dining room and a kitchenette. We were lucky that the apartment where we stayed was adjacent to the Minimart. There are villas... More

We booked a $110 garden view room at the resort. The location is just along the road so it is convenient, however, some buses pass through the diversion road so make sure to confirm to your driver if they are passing through San Juan. The pool was great. It has a bar on the pool. The view of the beach... More

We've stayed in Kahuna before and enjoyed our room (suite)which was by the poolside, everything was wonderful though the food wasn't great. But you go to Kahuna for the pool and the views which we enjoyed the first time we stayed there. We returned just last week and stayed in an ocean villa suite and paid 11,600+ for a night... More

Kahuna is a great place to stay, relax and spend time with family and friends. The staff are very friendly and are quick to act for any request. Do try their Signature Kahuna massage which is very relaxing.

As a travelling musician and hobbyist, I've been around every gig & liesure spot in and out of town and there's nothing like Kahuna. Great place for that classy vacation vibe. It gets that instant 5-star rating Vs the other resorts within that strip. Very warm and friendly staff, great food and amenities, nice crowd, and awesome lineup of musicians.... More
