Greetings from the Hotel General Manager

Insider Tip
  • To experience the beauty of Hawaii, you must book a Koko head ocean front room with breathtaking views of morning sunrises, dolphins playing, and the beauty of the azure waters of the dolphin lagoons and Pacific ocean. There is no breakfast that compares to Plumeria Beach House’s delicate thin pancakes, slice of Sunrise papaya with a squeeze of fresh lime, and sticky buns like Grandma use to make.
Hotel Overview
  • Beachfront luxury
    At the end of one of O’ahu’s most scenic drives around the iconic Diamond Head Crater, The Kahala Hotel & Resort is situated in one of O’ahu’s most exclusive residential neighborhoods fronting an 800-foot stretch of sugary white-sand beach.
  • Iconic style
    338 elegant rooms with contemporary comforts, guest rooms and suites are decorated in ivory and coffee-color tones.
  • Spa, dolphin lagoon
    Five stylish restaurants, a world-class spa, leisure facilities, fitness Center, lush tropical gardens and the private lagoon with our own resident dolphins.
What to Expect:
  • Since opening in 1964, The Kahala has hosted for accommodations or held events for every American President since Lyndon B. Johnson, foreign royalty and dignitaries, film and pop stars, and even His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Just minutes away from the resort is Kahala Mall with shopping, movie theater, and restaurants. Also nearby is the ocean-side estate of famed heiress Doris Duke with its collection of Islamic art and artifacts, now under the direction of the Honolulu Museum of Art. Don’t miss Honolulu’s largest Farmer’s Market on Saturday mornings a few blocks away. Five minutes further you’re in Oahu’s cosmopolitan playground—Waikiki. East of The Kahala are some great snorkeling and surfing beaches—Hanauma Bay and Sandy Beach, along with some challenging world-class golf courses.
Amenity Highlights:
  • The beautiful beach provides calm water for swimming, snorkeling, and ocean adventures. The Kahala Hotel & Resort’s elaborate pool complex includes a large ocean view surrounded by a spacious sundeck with tropical landscaping and a garden of small palm trees. The resort is also the home for six Atlantic bottlenose dolphins. Emphasizing education, Dolphin Quest scientist/trainers and participants will have loads of fun in this hands-on adventure featuring a face-to-face dolphin encounter in the 26, 000 square-foot salt-water lagoon. Adding to the resort amenities is the The Kahala Spa. Setting new standards for luxury and the latest trends in spa treatments, the spa boasts a suite of nine spacious, treatment rooms designed to exude a sense of calm and serenity.
