Recent guest reviews

The Kahala Hotel and Resort far exceeded our expectations. Words can hardly describe the beauty and opulence of this paradise property. The staff provided a degree of excellence not often seen. Our anniversary vacation will never be forgotten!

Service was Perfect. Property was very nice however it needs some minor maintenance like new carpet and trim replacement and paint.

Great location away from the crowds of Waikiki. One mile from a major shopping center. Artificial sand beach is mushy, both above and below waterline. Restaurants are pricy.

Great location! Terrific staff! I would definitely visit again!

What i love about this hotel how peaceful i feel when i stay there! I really enjoy seeing the dolphins and the quiet beach area.

Concerned staff and good service The rooms were large and set up nicely.Turn down service a nice touch

Lotsof stuff to do right at the hotel, including leaves to eat an d drink.

We have been returning to the Kahala for many years. This stay, like always, was fantastic. The food wars outstanding. We couldn’t stop eating!

3 peaples staied one king bed . Hotel side said no garanthie 2bed. I wasn't happy to stay the room.

This resort was so beautiful. I wasn’t expecting such a nice place when I booked. Had no idea they had a dolphin and turtle lagoon right outside the door. I loved it

My room overlooked the lagoon. It was cool to watch the dolphins from the patio. I highly recommend this hotel.

Beutiful hotel close to beach Nice staff Nice breakfast and beautiful restaurant Quiet place away from busy Wi ki ki beach

Loved the dolphin encounter! Very friendly and helpful staff!

We had an outstanding experience at the Kahala. The grounds are beautiful and the staff is extremely gracious! We will definitely stay there again!

Wonderful hotel, service, and staff. The only negative I can say is that the smoking area was below our room so some of the smoke would rise to our room via the open balcony door. Next time will request a room higher up or in another section.

Away from the noise and madness that is Waikiki, but a short taxi or shuttle ride if you want to be in the action. Beautiful location, excellent staff and yummy restaurants. Stop by Arancino in the entrance courtyard for some great Italian food and have the bartender, Jonah, make you a GREAT Bloody Mary!

The welcoming workers and friendliness around the Hotel were absolutely wonderful. Our room was always clean and the beds were extremely comfortable. We stayed here for our Honeymoon and talk about how nice of a hotel it was.
