Stay In Opulence While In Honolulu!

Staying at a five-star hotel along a private, secluded beach might seem like a privilege reserved for millionaires, but The Kahala Hotel and Resort offers just that. You're four miles from Waikiki Beach, but with a private, secluded beach right next to the hotel, you might appreciate the separation from typical tourists. If you like, you can walk to Waialae Iki Park and Laukahi Park, or even the famous Diamond Head State Park, only a couple of miles away. For the more active folks, plenty of activities are nearby, including water skiing, windsurfing, kayaking, and snorkeling.

Swim With the Dolphins

While at the hotel, be sure to swim and interact with the hotel's dolphins, which are part of a 26,000 square-foot saltwater lagoon complete with exotic fish and sea turtles. The Keiki Club helps kids learn about Hawaiian culture, make local crafts, and meet new friends in a supervised environment. The Chi Fitness Center is open 24/7 for your workout needs and comes complete with recumbent bikes, elliptical cross-trainers, and plenty more. For a more unique workout, try the Stand Up Paddleboard combined with yoga.

Free Wi-Fi is available in some public areas, and plenty of business services are available if you're coming to Hawaii for business. Over 11,000 square feet of outdoor space and 13,000 square feet of indoor space are available for almost any size meeting or event.

Eat and Drink in Luxury

The hotel's main on-site restaurant, Hoku's, is renowned for its elegant fusion of Hawaiian, Asian, and European flavors, prepared with finesse, and served with style. The restaurant's multi-level design ensures every table receives both an ocean view and a chance to peek in the open kitchen. Also on site is Arancino at the Kahala, an Italian restaurant open for lunch and dinner, the Plumeria Beach House for casual beachside dining, and The Veranda, a lounge that overlooks the Dolphin Lagoon. Room service is available 24/7 if you'd prefer to dine with your own private view.

A Room as Gorgeous as the View

Along with views of the Ko'olau mountain range or Pacific Ocean, you'll find hand-woven Tibetan carpets, teak floors, and mahogany furnishings within your room. Replete with Hawaiian touches and a light color palette, rooms feature an alarm clock radio, 40-inch LCD TV, WiFi, and at least 550 square feet of space. Upgrade to one of the Scenic Ocean View Suites for a separate living room and lanai, or balcony. These suites feature 1,100 square feet of space, making the entire area feel incredibly spacious.

An upgrade to consider is the Scenic Ocean View Suite Complimentary Amenity Program, complete with roundtrip airport transfers, a daily breakfast buffet for two, a nightly sweet from the hotel's chefs, and more.

The Bottom Line

Staying in opulence and enjoying a private beach is no longer something out of your reach. Whether coming to Hawaii for a once-in-a-lifetime trip or a vacation, this hotel is at the top of its class.

Expert Reviews
The Telegraph
The Kahala has been tucked into an affluent seaside Honolulu neighborhood for more than half a century, and remains the epitome of island luxury and a retreat for famously discerning...
DK Eyewitness
On a great swimming beach and close to plenty of golf, this resort is perhaps best known for its lagoon, where guests can mix with bottlenose dolphins through the Dolphin Encounters program.
In one of Oahu's most prestigious residential areas, the Kahala offers the peace and serenity of a neighbor-island vacation, but with the conveniences of Waikiki just a 10-minute drive away.
