Insider Tip
  • The Kahala Burger, available at the open-air Plumeria Beach Café, brings guests back to the resort year after year.
Hotel Overview
  • Ivory-sand beach
    Nestled on an exclusive ivory-sand beach, this legendary resort, just east of Diamond Head, pampers guests with plantation-era hospitality.
  • Spectacular vistas
    338 refreshed, spacious rooms and suites with spectacular vistas overlooking the ocean, mountains, or dolphin lagoon. Suites include a Suite Amenity added-value program.
  • 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:
  • Opened in 1964 and frequented by Hollywood's elite (Frank Sinatra, Tom Cruise, Michelle Pfeiffer), entertainment notables (Faith Hill, Luciano Pavarotti, Billy Joel), every US president from Nixon to Clinton, and royalty (Queen Elizabeth, Princess Grace, the Dalai Lama), this resort attracts the rich and famous and the discriminating and sophisticated. Ordinary families cavort next to the glitterati. Consistent awards prove this resort is among the world's best .
Amenity Highlights:
  • For a modest fee, guests (kids, too) can swim and interact with the resort's most loved residents, the Atlantic bottlenose dolphins. Emphasizing education, Dolphin Quest scientist/trainers run the program in the 26,000-square-foot salt-water lagoon. The Kahala Hotel and Resort's elaborate pool complex includes a large ocean-view pool lined with blue Italian-glass tiles, a big spa, and a children's wading pool - all surrounded by a sundeck furnished with thickly padded lounge chairs and fronted by a sunning lawn graced by coconut trees. Responding to celebrity requests, the resort built five 550-square-foot spa suites (one for couples) where guests can receive various massages and body treatments in an utterly tranquil, private setting, beginning with a foot-bathing ritual.
