What People Are Saying:

Perfect for our Honeymoon

We spent the first week of our honeymoon at the Kahala Hotel & Resort last November. After that we went to the Hyatt Regency Kauai. We really enjoyed the Kahala Hotel & Resort. We knew that we wanted to get away after the wedding was over to a quiet Hawaii vacation. This place met all of our needs. There is a terrific restaurant on property and the beach has wonderful and fun activities. We drove to Waikiki for shopping but was always happy to get back to the Kahala Hotel & Resort.

Favorite Hotel

We were married at the Kahala Hotel & Resort on June 6, 2003. We've experienced Kahala in the past, hence our wedding there. Couldn't ask for a more pleasant and memorable experience. The entire staff were outstanding...we are planning our yearly anniversary at the Kahala.
