    The food is excellent. While parts of the facility are outdated, it is well maintained and the attentive staff makes up for the slightly dated appearance. The beach is awesome.

    The pool should be larger. The poolside menu could use some more pizazz and creativity.

    A Quality Place for Families

    Private beach means it is never overcrowded. Friendly, professional staff. Dolphin Lagoon a must experience for kids. Big, comfortable room with comfortable bed, nice bath amenities. All toilets have a bidet, which is a nice surprise. Beautiful grounds and atmosphere.

    Above average humidity for this time of year. We were told it was due to the El Nino from winter. Small pool (and number of chaise lounges) that can get crowded quickly. Food from the Seaside Grill and Plumeria is overpriced and okay, at best. Drinks overpriced, but tastes great.

    Perfect location for a high end hotel

    Kahala is located close enough to the city action yet far enough away where it's remote. Though the pool area was relatively small, it was never crowed. The dolphin lagoon and sea turtle exhibit was quite amazing. Beach was also gorgeous and calm. No complaints about the Kahala. Would definitely visit again.

    Wish there was good snorkeling right around there but that's asking for too much!!

About

Overview

In 1964, the Kahala Hotel quickly became a Hawaiian icon housing a lot of A-listers and Presidents. The Kahala Hotel and Resort is a posh property with lush grounds and celebrity clientele, but it’s still appropriate for a family-friendly stay. The oceanfront Kahala Hotel and Resort is situated on the island’s priciest areas in Oahu’s posh Kahala neighborhood. There’s not much within walking distance, but guests are just a five-minute drive from grocery stores, a movie theater, and restaurants. The crater park that defines the shoreline, Diamond Head State Monument, is an eight-minute drive and offers fabulous views of Waikiki and Honolulu from its peak. Roughly a 20-minute drive will lead guests to Waikiki, central Honolulu, and The Hanauma Bay State Nature Preserve. Amenities at the resort focus solely on vacationers with a gorgeous, secluded beach, oceanfront saltwater pool, hot tub, and small kids’ pool. A large ocean-view gym offers state-of-the-art equipment, classes, a steam room, and sauna. In addition, the Kahala Spa offers standard spa services. One of the hotel's most popular features is its Dolphin Quest, where guests can have a once-in-a-lifetime interactive dolphin experience. There are four on-site restaurants, two are oceanfront and offer international menus, sandwiches, and quick bites. The guest room at Kahala are big and classy with a mix of sizes and décor. All rooms feature common amenities such as air conditioning, free WiFi, flat-screen TVs, and iHomes. Other conveniences and room standards include coffeemakers with free coffee and tea, mini-fridges, bottled water, luggage stands, robes, slippers, hairdryers, and much more. The huge granite accented bathrooms are as glorious as the rooms with upgraded toiletries, glass showers, soaking tubs, and much more.
