Appreciate you sharing your visit. Our hotel is constantly being examined and updated to fit modern conveniences and technology without losing the charm that was the original design and attraction to leading travelers from all over the world. Mahalo for noting.

I am torn. The Kahala in my opinion is the best place to stay on O'ahu, away from the craziness of Waikiki. "Upscale" I suppose but it is a bit tired, the pool is so small and I missed the sound of the waves crashing...More

Aloha, Amanda and mahalo for your considered comments. Yes, the reef keeps the 'break' a bit offshore. Some find that makes it a better swimming and beach experience.

No. You can purchase breakfast package, but that's it. Since this is Honolulu afterall, you probably do want to venture out some.

the closest luau that I know of would probably be at the Hilton Hawaiian village in Waikiki. I haven't been to that one so I can't speak about the quality or the price, just the location.

Yes you do but the distance is not long so it’s more of a short walk on the beach, but because it’s private, it makes the walk more peaceful and enjoyable.
