The Kahala Hotel and Resort: a choice to be made blindfolded for your next, incredible stay in O’ahu.
Pampered, spoiled. The first words that comes to my mind if I think about our stay at The Kahala Hotel and Resort, on the magical Hawaiian island of O’ahu.
Since the moment you step out for your car, the staff starts taking care of you and welcomes you with a typical Aloha Lei. Gentle and welcoming, all the people at The Kahala will make you feel like you entered a dream.
Dining at The Kahala
The hall, spacious and airy is right next the Veranda, one of the hotels dining options. With a large terrace overlooking the beach, The Veranda is more like a huge living room, where to have a cup of afternoon tea or sit back and relax to the sound of Hawaiian music with a plate of delicious sushi or a sandwich.
Hoku’s and Arancino, together with Plumeria Beach house and the Seaside grill complete the Kahala dining opportunities. At Hoku’s you’ll savor Chef Eric Oto’s proposals of traditional Hawaiian cuisine blended with international and Pacific ingredients. Perfect for a Sunday brunch or dinner.
Join Executive Chef Daisuke Yamamoto at Arancino if you fancy some tasteful and contemporary Italian cuisine for lunch, dinner or stop by to have an evening delicious dessert.
You’re in the right place at Plumeria beach house if you’re in search of a good cocktail watching sunset and some casual dining during the weekend. Here is the place to reach in the morning to have a delicious breakfast, both buffet or a la carte.
Complimentary coffee and tea are available daily to all guests on the lower floor next to the exit for the outside areas.
Everyone knows that swimming and sunbathing makes you hungry… well you may find refreshment and an excellent spot for lunch at the Seaside grill. If you fancy something intimate or you have to celebrate a special occasion, just tell the staff and they’ll organize everything for you.
Hotel and rooms
The hotel is nestled on a tranquil small bay in the south part of O’ahu, just few minutes from Honolulu. Peace and relax will accompany you during all your stay.
All rooms and suites are spacious and with unique views of the Pacific Ocean, the dolphins pool or with a view of O’ahu’s mountains. King beds are large and comfortable and bathrooms have two separate vanity areas with a spacious showers and separated bathtubs. You won’t have any space problem here as it usually happens in other hotels!
Several luxurious suites are available at the Kahala, usually chosen by star, royals and presidents as their home away from home while on the island of O’ahu.
Experiences & services
For all shopping addicts, the hotel offers all its guests free shuttle rides to Waikiki, Ala Moana shopping center and Kahala mall. The use of the fitness center with steam room and sauna is also included in the hotel services you may enjoy during your stay, as well as daily introductory surf and paddle board lessons.
The lagoon at the Kahala is home of 6 playful beautiful Atlantic bottlenose dolphins as well as two sea turtles and several colorful tropical fishes. Do not worry for their wellness, as there is a team dedicated to them that constantly checks their health. Programs at the Dolphin Quest allow guests and keiki (children) to get in touch with the dolphins, swimming and playing with them.
If all this haven’t yet convinced you to book your next stay at the Kahala let me add that this has been once of my best hotel experiences so far, even if it lasted only for one night!
I would like to extend a special thank to all the staff at the Kahala Hotel and Resort that has made our stay to celebrate my birthday so special and unforgettable. Mahalo and a hui hou.
Our stay have been possible thanks to a collaboration with The Kahala Hotel and Resort.
