As always, awesome customer service across-the-board. The most friendliest staff I have ever experienced. Local presence at its finest!! The food is off the chart, especially the fried ahi musubi! Hoku’s definitely set the bar with their unique 8 course dinner.

Great location, wonderful amenities and dolphins too! Our family of four enjoyed the beach, pool and restaurants. The employees were delightful and helpful. Perfect distance to the city without being in the city and an easy drive to Pearl Harbor. Highly recommend

This is our second trip to the Kahala and we could not recommend this resort more. The valets, concierge, front desk, servers. bartenders and housekeeping all go above and beyond to make your stay wonderful. We actually made it a point this time that we wanted to spend more time at the resort and the wonderful beach. We miss it so much now that we are back. Would not stay anywhere else on Oahu and can't wait to come back!

Aloha! All the stuff is very professional and polite. Always with a smile on their faces and ready to answer any questions. The location is perfect the Beach is “private” and everything is very clean. The dolphins look very happy and swimming with them was a wonderful experience also… Not to mention the heated toilets, the amazing food and drinks…. Hope to be back soon. Mahalo!

We love the Kahala. Location is calm and relaxing. Staff - valets, reception, food staff, housekeeping - are all superb. Rooms could use a little freshening but are spacious and clean. We will return.

Celebrated my wife 70th birthday.and it couldn’t have been better. Very relaxed atmosphere and both friendly and knowledgeable staff. Not wild about the buffet dinner but it too was very good for the occasion. Had an opportunity to interact with the dolphins with was the icing on the cake. Can’t wait to go back.

Fantastic hotel. Great for an anniversary trip! Restaurants in hotel were excellent especially the Italian one. Service was top notch with daily housekeeping and turn down service as you would expect. Pool and private beach were really nice with comfortable chairs and a bar nearby. Hotel let us borrow bikes to go to nearby Diamond Head State Park. Would definitely stay there again!

The Kahala is an iconic hotel that is always wonderful. The staff is first rate and most have been there for years. We noticed this trip that the property is getting really run down. The carpet and upholstery in our room was stained and the patio chairs on our patio were coming apart at their seams. The bed and linens are fabulous and it’s always a pleasure to stay at the Kahala, it’s just time for some serious renovations.
