Relaxed atmosphere but gorgeous seaside resort. One gets a "native cottage" with good amenities. The bar offers a variety of cocktail drinks plus having breakfast with a scenic views of the ocean is simply a nice experience.

It's great having dinner with the sound of live music. That was the night of the Octoberfest. The staff were very courteous, with all the smiles, though they may be overwhelmed. Thanks for the assistance. We'll be there again.

We were a family group of 10 with ages from <60 to 18. the resort was ideal for this combination since the millenials enjoyed learning to surf, playing billiards, and playing basketball in the swimming pool. The latter was less pleasant for the older generation lounging by the pool but after getting used to the thumping, it was alright. Thankfully...

To say that the stay was nice, it was. But it could have been so much more. The rooms are very small - so for a family of 5 i had to get two rooms... which was very inconvenient. The one room was by the poolside, cabana 5 - right next door to the pool and towel area and at...

Front desk personnel Jen and Charm provide excellent service comparable to 5star hotels, the warmth and hospitality of the entire staff is sincere and topnotch! The ocean villa room and suite room, both overlooking the beach and the pool is perfect. The spa, although small with limited therapist provide great relaxation. Will come back again!

Kahuna is our favorite because the place is so private, quiet and we had the pool for ourselves! That was a short stay but truly a memorable one because of the friendly staff, great food ( our fav Hawaiian pizza) and cozy place!

This was my second visit to Kahuna and we stayed for 2 nights in the villa suite. The place has lot to offer as it probably has the best surfing beach. The infinity pool with basketball net and a swimming pool bar is great. The only major drawback is the variety of food for foreigners which leaves you with a...

Hotel staff are all well-trained. Front desk was friendly and attentive. They gave us a room that has a view of the ocean, as we requested via agoda. They even put flower petals on our bed in the shape of hearts for our anniversary night. That was so cute. The food was acceptable, not something to rave about. The rooms...

Kahuna's sits right on the beach at the best surfing spot in all of La Union and a beautiful sandy beach great for swimming, surfing for the entire family. The dining area has a spectacular view of the beach and you can sit for hours watching the surfers (both locals and foreigners) tearing it up on the point break located...
