Recently stayed here for five nights. Pros/Cons in my mind: Pros: 1. Far from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki 2. Luxury hotel with friendly staff 3. Rooms that are large and clean for the most part Cons: 1. Small beach. 2. Small pool 3. Will probably need a car. Parking is $30+ a day. 4. Golf course is part of the hotel. My rental car was hit by a golf ball and resulted in a small dent.
"Amazing property to stay AND for events!"
The Kahala is a lovely ocean-front property which sits on a small private-feeling beach away from the crowds of Waikiki. While upscale, it is also very welcoming - beautifully decorated yet not stuffy. The staff is gracious and attentive. From the moment we stepped onto the property, the bellman, wait staff, and everyone else remembered us and called us by name. Our room was beautifully appointed with a comfortable sitting area and "real wood" furniture, complete with luxury high-end toilets!! It was fun and relaxing just to be there! My purpose for staying over was to oversee my company's Holiday party, an event for approximately 300 people, which we held in the Maile Ballroom. Kari, the catering manager was a joy to work with, and each and every detail of the event went perfectly! I received numerous comments from the party attendees raving about the food and the service, and I agree! I've eaten at a number of hotel buffets (including high end) and The Kahala nailed the difficult task of making buffet food taste fresh and interesting, and like it was made to order for me personally. I look forward to holding future events at The Kahala!
"special birthday celebrations"
Beautiful hotel on beach, view from room overlooking golf course. Lovely room, even lovelier staff. Had a wonderful relaxing pedicure at their spa, a special thank you to Miki. Stunning lobby so lovely just to sit and admire their beautiul xmas decorations. Thanks to super friendly staff at breakfast, always smiling and helpful. Thanks to the lovely staff at The Verandah had lovely high tea. Will be back and highly recommend for a peacful location just 15 to 20 mins into bustling Waikiki, the hotel provides free shuttle service.
"Tea for Two At The Kahala With You"
One Word....ELEGANT....... Spent a few hours at the Kahala whilst celebrating an anniversary/birthday.. we were from a cruise ship with stopover at HNL... and spent a very amiable few hours enjoying an HAWAII HIGH TEA in very salubrious surroundings.A definite comeback stop.
"A magical word-class place"
I had indescribable relaxing days here. A beautiful area. All in all, simply top notch. Well maintained and spacious rooms with nice interieur. A first class service. Delicious food and cocktails at the pool and beach. Arrived in Hotel Heaven!
