I stayed at Kahala for a group event and everything was top notch from beginning to end. Highly recommend for business or vacation travel. Room was excellent, food was very high quality and the location could not be better.

This hotel is very nice, and the private beach is brilliant to have to get away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. The minibus into the centre of Honolulu was useful and the staff were friendly. The restaurants are lovely. I would highly recommend this hotel if you have the money however it is a little on the expensive side and you need to get a bus or a taxi to go anywhere other than the hotel.

Stayed: September 2015, travelled as a couple

Mahalo for choosing The Kahala Hotel & Resort for your recent visit to Oahu. We enjoyed reading all of the positive comments you provided and we are so delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay. The Kahala does offer the best of two worlds being minutes outside of Waikiki for a peaceful location, as you mentioned away from the hustle and bustle. We do provide a complimentary shuttle for our guests to go to popular shopping destinations and into Waikiki. Many enjoy having this service, alternatively, we offer complimentary bike rentals.

Mahalo again for staying with us and we look forward to being of service to you during your next visit.

We have held an annual business event at the Kahala for two years. The staff is second to none with Grace Chan at the helm. The entire staff is always pleasant and engaged with the guests. The food in each of the restaurants is superb. The Dolphin Quest is an experience everyone should have in their lifetime. David Swanson in the lounge is an accomplished pianist and musician. Our guests thoroughly enjoy this hotel.

Room Tip: Variety of room locations. Ocean front rooms are ideal but there are also rooms overlooking the Dolp...

Our room was right on the dolphin lagoon, we were able to enjoy the dolphins whenever we wanted as they were right next to us. Our room was large and comfortable. Each employee we encountered was extremely nice and gave us outstanding service. The Kahala Beach Resort is on the other side of Diamond Head from downtown Honolulu and perfect for your privacy. We were only steps away from the secluded beach area. We enjoyed our five night stay to the fullest.

Service here is the best. Everyone is so nice and seem like they really care about this hotel and about making a good impression. We had an excellent stay. We will come back again. The Italian restaurant here is exceptionally good.

Room Tip: we like the quiet rooms overlooking the golf course
