In one of Oahu's most prestigious residential areas, The Kahala Hotel & Resort offers the peace and serenity of a neighbor-island vacation, but with the conveniences of Waikiki just a 10-minute drive away. Set amongst exoctic gardens, waterfalls and a salt-water lagoon home to playful Atlantic Bottlenose dolphins, tropical fish and sea turtles, The Kahala recently completed a multi-million dollar makeover of all its guest rooms, suites, and public spaces. The 6.5 acre property sits on a crescent shaped beach overlooking both Diamond Head and Koko Head craters. The 306 guest rooms are spacious at an average size of 550 square feet. Its luxurious 32 suites are in constant demand. All rooms and suites have recently been redone in the resort's signature "Kahala Chic" design, a contemporary look with an open and airy tropical feel reflecting the elegant island lifestyle enjoyed in residential Kahala. In-room amenities include two-line phones, 40-inch flat screen televisions, large bathrooms with free-standing glass showers, large soaking tubs, and "his" and "her" dressing areas. Other extras that make this property outstanding: Hawaiian cultural programs, shuttle service to Waikiki and major shopping centers, free scuba lessons in the pool, Dolphin Quests's educational interactive programs, a great year-round children's program, and a variety of water activities ranging from outrigger canoe surfing to fly fishing. A must-do indulgence is The Kahala Spa, which features treatments in rooms designed for individualized massages, body scrubs, and facials. The spa also offers manicures, pedicures, one-blade shaves and teeth whitening services.
