The picture do not describe the hotel. It’s super dated and the rooms kind of suck. Staff is nice and the best part are the dolphins at the hotel but you def need to rent a car which we did. It’s not close to anything and their restuants are just ok despite their hype. Overall it’s rating should be lower. Needs a renovation and

The grand old lady is showing her age and under attack by neighbors demanding beach space. Some of the exclusivity and luxury has gone missing probably due to COVID-19 and the ensuing decline in American lifestyle quality overall. It’s sad.

10/10 Exceptional

It is rare that I'd come to the same hotel twice - and this is one of those exceptions! After an amazing stay last summer, we came back to the wonderful Kahala which now feels like home away from home. Amazing, thoughtful, wonderful service and staff, beautiful clean rooms, restaurants, peaceful location with a pristine beach yet only 10-15 min from all the fun of Honolulu and Waikiki. We plan to come back next year. Thank you dear Kahala for another memorable stay!
