From check-in to check-out trip was perfection! Upon arrival at this gorgeous hotel (our family of four, kids 14 & 11) we were greeted with leis and upgraded to a magnificent oceanfront suite. The view was stunning and I had my morning coffee on the huge balcony every morning while the rest of the family slept. Breakfast on the terrace...

A luxury resort feel with great ammenities and activities and beautiful beach which is private and quiet. It is only a 20 minute drive from downtown Waikiki. The...

I recently had dinner at Hoku's in the Kahala Hotel. It's my favorite place to dine, however I am not writing about the usual great dinner and service at Hoku's, I am writing about the nice surprise I experienced with the valet service! After dinner we were greeted by all the valets by our name (both guests) asking us how...

Upon arrival, Craig at valet greeted me by name and other valets also welcomed me by name. When I arrived at Plumeria House, the hostess was extremely pleasant, Eric...

We are never disappointed when we stay here. Best beach scene on Oahu. All beached are public but this beach seems private. Great for kids and adults, easy access to the beach. Small put great pool. Rooms are fantastic. Get the golf course view for privacy. Great restaurants

Hotel has a beautiful setting and the buffet breakfast is delicious. Although there were some glitches on check-in and a problem with the second assigned room (beware a room on the 10th, which is a smoking floor) Bart, the front desk manager on duty, resolved all problems swiftly and then personally delivered a generous fruit and cheese plate. He showed...

The 1960s Kahala is located on the south-eastern side of Oahu about 20 minutes drive from Waikiki just around Diamond Head. 20 minutes drive from Waikiki but a world away. For all of Waikiki's noise, shops, intensity and crowds the Kahala offers the complete opposite. The iconic 60s style modernist Kahala hotel is set on the most beautiful palm tree...

Julie O., Breann and Zi made our dining experience so special. We love to celebrate special occasions at the Plumeria, and love to bring our dearest friends. The food was totally delicious, the setting perfect and romantic. We had the best time and can't wait to return! Thank you so much!
