Overview

Located on a secluded beach within one of Oahu's classiest neighborhoods, The Kahala Hotel & Resort Honolulu offers guests privacy and luxury. The hotel's decor features a unique blend of casual beach style combined with opulence. For instance, upon entering the lobby, a stunning chandelier greets you as do walls covered in beach-style wood. Rugs made from natural materials like jute or sea grass cover high-gloss parquet floors. The hotel's staff is known for its pampering expertise, so consider reserving a spa treatment such as a massage, facial or pedicure. Conde Nast Traveler magazine reported that the Kahala Spa is the best in Oahu.

Highlights

Key facts

As a guest of the Kahala Hotel & Resort, you can dine in five different restaurants, including Hoku's, which is a famed eatery that offers a blend of Asian and Pacific cuisine. You can also eat at Veranda Lounge, Seaside Grill, Plumeria Beach House and Arancino. Room service is available 24 hours a day, and the hotel offers a free shuttle to Waikiki if you want to dine at a different restaurant or shop for souvenirs.

While staying at the Kahala Hotel, you'll have access to the CHI Fitness Center. The hotel employs personal trainers to customize fitness programs for its guests. You can also participate in a unique paddleboard yoga class or an aerobic session.

Dining

The Veranda
The Veranda takes patrons back to another time when life was more leisurely and meeting with friends for tea and conversation was a daily affair. The comfortable lounge overlooks the Dolphin Lagoon with a choice of both indoor and al fresco seating. Large, upholstered chairs are perfect for lingering over a cocktail or just escaping with a good book, as palm leaf motifs and island-inspired furnishings transport you to that other time. Our Afternoon Tea is a tradition, after a day out discovering Oahu. It is also a popular venue for special occasions and showers. Afternoon Tea includes your choice of Harney & Sons Tea or 100% Kona Peaberry coffee with pastries.
Hoku's
Hoku's at The Kahala Hotel & Resort is heralded for its innovative fusion fare which melds Hawaiian, Asian and European flavors. Consistently ranked as one of Hawaii's best restaurants, Hoku's recently underwent a makeover and unveiled a new menu. With a twist on contemporary Island cuisine, Hoku's returns to the basics and revamps the classics. The menu has been expanded to include an exotic variety of new dishes, such as Slow Braised Kahuku Pork Belly, Pancetta Crusted Onaga, and Salt Crusted Rack of Wisconsin Lamb, served tableside. The cuisine is fresh, light, and innovative. Ingredients are a mix of fresh locally grown produce and imports from abroad. Hoku's has a breathtaking beachside setting with panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean from every table in the multi-level dining room. Also competing for guest's attention is the open kitchen featuring fiery hot woks, a kiawe wood grill, and tandoori and wood-burning ovens.
Plumeria Beach House
On the edge of the white sands of Kahala, the oceanside Plumeria Beach House is our open-air, all day dining restaurant. Guests will enjoy Hawaii's beautiful sunshine and stunning coastal view at the Plumeria Beach House. The restaurant is bathed in warm, natural earth tones reminiscent of a comfortable island home, with indoor and outdoor terraces taking full advantage of breezy trade winds. It's an ideal choice for casual dining, quiet meetings and cocktails at sunset, like our famous Mai Tai and specialties like Mango Madness or the popular Lava Flow. In keeping with the restaurant's promise of keeping things fresh, the dishes are updated seasonally. The expanded a la carte menu features signature items such as The Kahala Burger using certified angus ground beef with a fried egg, white cheddar cheese, guacamole, bacon, thinly sliced onions served with french fries and popular items such as Kahala Thin Pancakes and Grilled Ahi Sandwich.
Seaside Grill
With a direct view of the Pacific Ocean, Seaside Grill is perfect for lunch after a relaxing morning at the pool, a swim with the Dolphins, beach activities or a shopping excursion to Waikiki. Lunch is served at beachside tables, with views of the ocean and beach activity. Menus include fresh bounty from local waters, sandwiches and salads, hamburgers and delectable desserts, all served with refreshing drinks from the poolside bar. Seaside Grill is available in the evening for private functions and special celebrations.

This is by far the best hotel that I have experienced. Located at a quiet place, apart from the Honolulu, nice views, beautiful beach, and excellent attractions. You can check out dolphins here, which is awesome.

Beautiful Hotel and Resort

Would recommend Wed, Jun 17, 2015
Our stay at the Kahala Hotel and Resort was wonderful. The service was top notch. Everyone took the time out to make you feel like they were glad you chose to stay at the resort. We loved the dolphin lagoon and the pool area. The beach was also great.

Worth it!!!!

Would recommend Tue, Jun 16, 2015
Amazing hotel to relax and be away from craziness of Waikiki. But if you have teenagers this might be too quiet and boring for their taste. Not much activities for teenagers. Also it's a distance from downtown. Their shuttle schedule needs to start earlier and last pick up should be when downtown closes. Our family loved the hotel and staff, but we like to go back and forth to Waikiki, so we had to use taxi often and the cost added up.

My 1st hawaii trip

Would recommend Mon, Jan 26, 2015
This was my first trip to Hawaii with my finance & we had a wonderful stay at the kahala. Our room was the ocean front suite. The suite was beautiful, and the bed was beyond comfortable. We had two bathrooms. Master bath had a bidet with heated toilet seat (a plus). Gorgeous view of the beach and diamond head. Maids came twice a day. Great restaurants in the resort. Out door pool with tiki bar. You can interact with dolphins. Scenery is beautiful, with breathtaking taking sunsets. Not a golfer but a full PGA tour golf course is across the from the hotel. Kahala is very peaceful and less busy compared to other hotels in the city. I would love to come back again.

Very nice location, paradise at it's best. After reviewing and reading a lot of other hotels, this one was my choice and I'm happy it was. Super beach, where you can walk and walk, clean, friendly, good food, it was all great. Would do it again in a heart beat and I'm usually, rather hard to please. Go and enjoy.

Great getaway resort

Would recommend Sun, Nov 16, 2014
We stayed at this resort for our honeymoon, and absolutely enjoyed our time here. Staff were friendly and helpful, private beach was great, room was very comfortable and nicely furnished. If I had to nitpick, some small gripes: - Location is a bit out of the way. If you want to walk out your door to shops and entertainment, then this is not the place for you. - And to make the location worse, the on-site parking fees are exorbitant! - Meals at the on-site restaurants are expensive! But to be expected I suppose. - Resort is well maintained and still grand, but is starting to show its age, and probably needs a major refurbishment in the next few years.
