The Kahala Hotel & Resort
For more than half a century the Kahala has been the epitome of island luxury and the ideal relaxing retreat fronting a peaceful stretch of sand and a little over a mile drive to Kahala Mall. The breezy lobby with tall shutter doors and colourful chandeliers to the beautifully decorated guest rooms give this place a deliciously decadent feel. Relax with afternoon tea or try your hand at hula classes, free daily surf lessons and sand toys available for children.
Guests are greeted with a chilled towel and flower lei by the knowledgeable and welcoming staff. The surrounding waters are called home by turtles, stingrays in waterfall-fed lagoons and dolphins that you can pay to get up close and personal with. The spa boasts indoor-only massages, facial and body treatments. There is also a modern fitness centre with outdoor saunas that lead paddle board yoga classes.
Rooms are decorated on soft colours and island prints to give this a spa-like oasis feel. In Kahala Towers you can see from Diamond Head to Koko Head Crater and still hear the waves crashing at night. Goose-down duvets allow for the dreamiest nights sleep where you could easily spend all day. Rooms also offer separate tubs, rain showers and chaise longues and balconies in some.
