We used the Kieki club for a couple of days during our stay. I cannot say enough good things about it! Lek was amazing with our son! He wants to go back! He went on the excursion day to the Zoo and the aquarium and then he did the camp day with the canoe/surf lessons. The added touch of sending...

We were here 6 months ago to celebrate our anniversary and had such a great time returned with our teenage son for Spring Break. This time was great, too. We rented a paddle board and attempted that for the first time. It challenged us in the wind, but provided a fun couple of hours nonetheless. I did a SUP yoga...

If you're going to Honolulu, your best bet is to stay at The Kahala Resort. The rooms are spacious, gorgeous and magnificently comfortable. The service is top notch and so is every dish on all their menus. Best vacation yet!

Our family stayed in 2 adjoining rooms that created a suite. We faced the gold course. The resort was nice with a full complimentary breakfast buffet. It was nice and remote so it felt much more quaint and relaxing. The most amazing part was the wondering photography session we did at the resort through Pacific Dream Photography. We will have...

This hotel is fantastic! It was literally the best service I have experienced anywhere, hotel/restaurant/website, you name it- I have never had better. From the front desk to catering to group events, amazing. The location is unrivaled. 20 mins from Honolulu, close enough to get to easily but far enough away to feel secluded and quiet.
