Thank You for our vacation to the Kahala Hotel & Resort

March 15, 2012 · Print This Article

Aloha Teresa,

The vacation was great and really enjoyed the Kahala Resort.  Send people there because it is a wonderful hotel and location.  Loved being so close to things but far enough away.  They are really trying hard to attract people from Maui and other more popular destinations.  Thank you for setting things up and making it a special vacation for my family.

Note from Travel Gal: The Kahala Resort is the only beachfront resort in Kahala, Oahu’s most prestigious residential area; the resort overlooks both Diamond Head and Koko Head craters yet is just 10 minutes by car or complimentary hotel shuttle to and from Waikiki beach.

Hotel overview: This ledgendary resort is nestled on an exclusive ivory-sand beach, just east of Diamond Head, pampers guests with plantation-era hospitality.  Spectacular vistas, 338 refreshed, spacious rooms and suites with spectacular vistas overlooking the ocean, mountains, or dolphin lagoon. Suites include a Suite Amenity added-value program.

Spa, dolphin lagoonFive stylish restaurants, a world-class spa, leisure facilities, fitness Center, lush tropical gardens and the private lagoon with our own resident dolphins.

What to Expect:  Opened in 1964 and frequented by Hollywood’s elite (Frank Sinatra, Tom Cruise, Michelle Pfeiffer), entertainment notables (Faith Hill, Luciano Pavarotti, Billy Joel), every US president from Nixon to Clinton, and royalty (Queen Elizabeth, Princess Grace, the Dalai Lama), this resort attracts the rich and famous and the discriminating and sophisticated. Ordinary families cavort next to the glitterati. Consistent awards prove this resort is among the world’s best.

Amenity Highlights:For a modest fee, guests (kids, too) can swim and interact with the resort’s most loved residents, the Atlantic bottlenose dolphins. Emphasizing education, Dolphin Quest scientist/trainers run the program in the 26,000-square-foot salt-water lagoon.  Responding to celebrity requests, the resort built five 550-square-foot spa suites (one for couples) where guests can receive various massages and body treatments in an utterly tranquil, private setting, beginning with a foot-bathing ritual.
