The Kahala Hotel and Resort was built on the beachfront of Kahala Beach in 1964. If you want to follow in famous footsteps, this luxury hotel has played host to a wide range of Hollywood and other famous names. Once, it was Henry Fonda and Elizabeth Taylor, more recently Angelina Jolie and The Dalai Lama.
The Kahala Hotel and Resort has a clean, contemporary design that takes its inspiration from all over the world. The parquet floors are Thai teak and Italian glass is in the beautiful chandeliers in the lobby. If you have one of the luxury suites, you can enjoy hand-carved items.
You can choose from a range of rooms or suites featuring either inland or sea views. A dining highlight at the hotel is Hoku’s which features an award-winning blend of French and Hawaiian cuisine. The Dolphin Quest adventures, in which you can spend time with or even feed Dolphins, help support local conservation and research.
Located south-east of Honolulu, this hotel is an ideal place to explore the quieter side of this Hawaiian island. You could head inland to the Honolulu Watershed Forest Reserve or perhaps venture east down the coast road. There, you can find lagoons on your way to Koko Head District Park.
