My husband and I visited The Kahala in June 2014. From the minute we arrived to when we left we felt welcome and well looked after. The staff were friendly and extremely helpful. We requested a wheelchair accessible room with wheel in shower and the room was just as requested. The hotel is totally wheel chair accessible and we had...

I just got back from a wonderful 5 night stay at the Kahala Hotel & Resort. The purpose of my trip was to relax, let go of stress, get in the healing Hawaiian ocean and see friends that live nearby. The resort exceeded all my expectations in every way! So much so that I'm returning in December with my Husband!...

I have virtually no complaints about my stay. The staff are amazing. The room was fantastic. They went above and beyond to acknowledge my birthday. The food is exceptional. The views are unreal. We especially loved that the hotel is outside the city. The privacy factor was a huge plus for us.

We Stayed here last week for 5 nights. I must say the service/employees go out of their way to make sure your stay is as pleasant as it can be. The location is great, away from the hustle of the big city, but central enough to visit any location on the island in a short time. The beach and pool...

Small but very friendly. Dolphins are a great attraction even if just watching. The staff was friendly and helpful. Rooms are beautiful. The hotel itself is a great place to stay during your vacation. Everything is close by, within a few min of drive. Highly recommend this place!

Wonderful experience...wonderful secluded location, yet access to Waikiki is easy. The scenic view room was beautiful overlooking the Golf course and view of mountain. Their employees are warm and friendly nod the service is great. It is not an inexpensive vacation.

I stayed four nights with my little dog. The resort was silent and very relaxed. My dog also enjoyed her stay. My dog is very silent and good in manner but unfortunately, I could not bring her any of the restaurants even for the outdoor tables. It would be very much nicer if this point is improved.
