What We Love

  • Calm ocean water thanks to the offshore reef
  • Much of the staff is bilingual
  • Lobby chandeliers, dripping with more than 28,000 pieces of colored glass, are original to the hotel
  • The blooming wall of orchids in the lobby stairwell
  • Prints by famous Hawaii graphic designer John Melville Kelly, cultural artifacts and seashell shadow boxes lend a sense of place to the rooms
  • The quiet serenity of the hotel — sleep with your balcony doors open to the sounds of the sea

What To Know

  • Twenty-minute drive from the Honolulu Airport
  • Free shopping shuttle transports guests to the Kahala Mall, Ala Moana Shopping Center and the Royal Hawaiian Center in the heart of Waikiki
  • Nightlife is limited to a quiet piano bar
  • Remote location means you’ll need to drive for entertainment beyond what the hotel offers
  • Most people choose to swim in the ocean, so the pool is on the small side

Last leg of our Hawaii trip and we really wanted to avoid the circus crush of Waikiki. Decided on the Kahala Hotel and Resort and it was a great decision. Pristine beach, outstanding rooms and amenities - peaceful and relaxing. The staff were outstanding. Thanks to all the staff for allowing us to have the perfect finale of our trip.

Kahala resort very fun for children
