Kahala Resort?

Recommended Posts

Anyone stayed there and have any input? I'd like to be near Waikiki but not in Waikiki.

I have only heard wonderful things about the Kahala. Very elegant and peaceful and not so near but not too far either from Waikiki.

In my opinion, it is one of the best hotels on the island. A lot of celebrities stay there because it is outside of Waikiki, but not too far. They also have a dolphin lagoon with 6 dolphins!

I absolutely love the Kahala! You feel like you are the only couple there even though you are not. It doesn't feel really conjested and touristy like the hotels on Waikiki. Also, this might sound bad, but each time I have been there I haven't seen very many little children. Not that I don't love children, but it just has a more adult-like and romantic atmosphere. It is just overall a wonderful resort though!

Thanks for the input. The Kahala is my favorite from what I have seen so far. I don't want to be in the middle of Waikiki madness as I already live in a hectic city and we are staying in Vegas a few days beforehand (though the wedding day will be at a very non-Vegas serene setting of Lake Las Vegas). I want serene and secluded and the fiance wants city action so it is compromise to stay close to Waikiki but a few minutes away from the heart of it. I am also looking at renting homes in Kahala, Hawaii Kai and DiamondHead areas. It is actually cheaper or equal than some of the $500+/nt rooms I'd want at the Kahala and some of the MTV cribs style homes have our own private pool, jacuzzi, lavish bathrooms with large tubs, fancy showers, etc. and have a very romantic setting. I have a couple of homes that I like right now that the owners have availability and may book part of my time at a home and then part of it at a lower end hotel.

If you decide to rent, be sure that it is legal to rent the place you are renting (sorry, this is a strange sounding sentence). It has been a huge controversy in Hawaii lately about people renting out their homes though. Many neighborhoods are upset that tourists are coming in & out of areas on a weekly basis. Nevertheless, if you find out that the rental you are looking into is legal, I would recommend houses around the Diamondhead area. My great aunt lives there and it is such a beautiful area. I have seen several homes on Diamond Head Road that can be rented out as well (and the ocean is your front yard!) Plus, it is very convenient (about 2 minutes) to the Waikiki area for your hubby-to-be!

 

Here is the forum that gives more information on the rental controversy:

    • My wedding date is set for the next month but not found any wedding planner finally got one wedding planner. its very very help for my wedding arrangement thank you indian wedding company
    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
