A great hotel to stay in if you want a lovely sandy beach away from the maddening crowds of Waikiki. Especially good for children, dolphin pool attraction (not just performing for guests but also great work being carried out by marine biologists). Large rooms, great king size beds, lovely linen & large bathrooms with separate dressing tables. A classic hotel,...

We arrived at the hotel and were blown away by how beautiful the grounds and interior are. Great location away from Waikiki and Honolulu, but close enough that you can get to all the restaurants and fun events. The room was some comfy and homey. It was a decent size and the views from the scenic rooms are amazing. Another...

We have stayed at some amazing hotels but I just didn't rate this one. We were travelling with a toddler and spending over $500 per night and when we asked for a glass of milk one night after dinner after we already paid our $250 restaurant bill - we were charged $2.50!!!!!! We felt this was over-priced and not great...

Aloha Marcia A. Thank you for taking the time to post a review. The Kahala’s pricing structure is competitive and on par with other Hawaii luxury resorts.

My sons wedding was here. Yes, the wedding was almost perfect. Worth every penny. Beautiful and relatively easy. Expensive, but worth it. Accommodations are very expensive for what you get. Rooms and amenities are clean, but not updated. At least not in my room. I paid for weeklong accommodations for five rooms. I actually asked for an upgrade. First, I...
