Historical Traveler Reviews The Kahala Hotel & Resort Honolulu
The hotel is truly fabulous, but there was one error in the last review. There are NO private beaches in Hawaii. Their beach may seem secluded, but anyone can go there...and they do.
Good in service!
Magnificent view! Private Beach! Will have my wedding in this hotel!!
You'll love it!
What a great vacation. I took my 10 year old son to Oahu in February. We had a fantastic time. Located far enough from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki and close enough to enjoy the sites of the island. The hotel is just superb. We stayed in a mountain view room and it was perfect. The view was beautiful, complete with a daily rainbow arching over the mountains. I would never think of staying at any other hotel on the island! Make sure you have a lot of cash $$$ for the taxi's when you travel from the hotel to anywhere! But this hotel is worth it.
A wonderful hideaway in Paradise
My husband and I honeymooned in Hawaii for 2 weeks. Kahala Mandarin was our first stay and words can not explain how wonderful this hotel is. Very cozy and not as commercial as the Hyatts that we stayed in Kauai and Maui. Service is extraordinary. The rooms are simple yet so elegant. The bathrooms are beautiful and as big as our hotel room at the Hyatt. If we go back to Hawaii, we will definitely stay at Kahala Mandarin.
Oahu, Natural Beauty, too crowded
We ended a 3 island trip at the Kahala Mandarin Oriental on Oahu. Beautiful as often described and great service but very busy and crowded. It was a little disappointing coming from a very lovely and uncrowded Big Island Hotel. Of Maui, Hawaii and Oahu, I thought Oahu to be the most naturally pretty but the crowds and the shopping centers not built in Waikiki really detract. The view of the Royal Hawaiian Hotel from Kalakaua Ave. is now spoiled by a shopping center. A trip to Hawaii is still the best, however.
what a superb vacation this resort is by far the most outstanding place i have ever stayed we just got back april 26 2003 and ready to go again the staff is flawless, the rooms are beautiful. PURE HEAVEN
The Kahala Mandarin Hotel was awesome!
While on the island of Oahu, we stayed at the Kahala Mandarin Hotel. This was the best hotel experience we have ever enjoyed. The accomodations were outstanding. The hotel staff was wonderful. The food was great and our children loved swimming with the dolphins at the attached DolphinQuest facility. We are already planning our next trip to the Kahala Mandarin!
This was the hotel that we stayed in on our first trip to Hawaaii. We loved every minute of our stay there and would love to return! Great hotel! Great Service! The dolphins were great!
The best on O'ahu
Nothing comes close to beating the Mandarin Oriental in the exclusive (and very private) Kahala residential area. A 8-10 min. drive from the hustle of Waikiki, we found the hotel to be a wonderful escape from the noise and crowds known to Waikiki.
The Mandarin's nearest competition, Halekulani, cannot even match the Mandarin's location, PRIVATE beach and stunning grounds. Halekulani is right on Waikiki, so if it's crowds you're after, stay at Halekulani. Otherwise, treat yourself like royalty and stay at the Mandarin Oriental in Kahala.
Heaven on Earth
Compound the beauty of Hawaii, add the friendly and warm people, and mix with the hospitality of the Kahala and you are in paradise for sure and certain. Heaven truly on earth. God's gift to the world.

... the shopping centre. I wanted to check out the supposed cheap prices, but being careful to purchase items only made in the USA due to the bad record that Walmart has with exploitation of people manufacturing goods in China and South America. After an interesting hour or so wandering around the store (Tom had long since given up and had found a seat), we left and returned to Ala Moana for a quick bite to eat ...
Got up about 7 and got ready to collect the mustang. Thankfully I didn't wake the dragon until 7:30 as decided. Left the hotel about 8, a bit later than planned so didn't get to the rental place until just after 8. Had to wait about 40 minutes to get the car. They tried to Palm is off with a Chevy, but the dragon questioned it and we got a sweet red mustang. Headed out to Diamond Head volcano. We went up diamond dHead. An amazing place. A ...

... I have tried many new foods while on the ship. I have tried carpaccio which is thinly sliced RAW beef. I did not like it. I have also tried Ahi tuna. I did not like it. I have also tried flautas which are like a rolled up taco. I did not like it. Can you tell that I am not very adventurous when it comes to food? I have eaten a lot of steak. There is always a lot of food available. Love the comments. Cannot wait to hear from you.
... here as the were in LA. We could hire a beach umbrella for $30 for the day, or we could hire an aqua bike or paddle board for around $45 for an hour and blow up floating rings or air beds and they were rather expensive too! We got the tip from someone swimming on the beach that we could buy blow up rings from the ABC store for $4.00. That's more our style!
Swim, shower and bed that was our day done!
