Editorial review:

A mere 15 minutes away from Waikiki, located in the luxury residential area of Kahala, this serene beachfront resort is perfect for leaving the real world and its troubles behind. The rooms are more like apartments in size, and have mahogany four poster beds and 450- thread count sheets, there is a mesmerizing dolphin lagoon, magnificent restaurants and a truly decadent Sunday brunch, a wonderful spa featuring private suites, and of course the staff which is fit for royalty.

  • Staff is wonderful - Grounds take your breath away - Renovated room

                      Getting there.

                      It takes about 30 minutes to get to the hotel from the Honolulu International Airport. Kahala Mall, Diamond Head, Waikiki, Hanolulu, Waialae country club and Huanauma bay are located in close proximity.

                      Getting around.

                      Kahala lies within 15-minute drive to the famous Waikiki. The easiest way to move around Kahala is to rent a moped or bike. For those travelling from the Waikiki airport, there is a Waikiki airport express that provides shuttle service to the downtown.

                        Great hotel when traveling with kids. I could eat breakfast and keep an eye on them as they were making sand castles. No beach on Waikiki would be this safe for kids as they're too crowded.

                        The mattress was just awful!

                        The quite and calm on the beach.

                        Did not receive the ocean front room we booked. Slow service, "nickel and dime" you for everything, billing was incorrect.
