The Kahala Resort in Oahu is a Little Slice of Heaven
This Oahu hideaway is one of the best luxury resorts for families. Case in point: everyone can swim with the dolphins, not just the kids. Set on a white sand beach just 10 minutes from the shopping and entertainment center of Waikiki, The Kahala Hotel & Resort in Honolulu's Kahala district is a favorite with presidents, international royalty and celebrities. The Kahala Towers and Dolphin Lagoon Wing feature 338 rooms with contemporary comforts such as complimentary Wi-Fi access, dual vanities and closets, 40-inch flat screen Sony LCD TVs, and more. The Kahala Kai and Kahala Beach suites offer maximum seclusion and privacy near the Dolphin Lagoon and are only steps away from beautiful Kahala Beach. A nice touch is that The Kahala Beach Suite is complete with a dining table and an outdoor barbecue grill, good for entertaining family or up to 50 guests. On the second level, the ocean-view Kahala Kai Suite, with its cozy beach cottage decor by Ralph Lauren Polo Collection, is chic and trendy. The Presidential Suite, where chief executives and royalty have stayed, combines luxury sleeping accommodations with amenities for business and private entertaining. It has a separate master bedroom, living room, and office space designed with Hawaiian residential sensibilities. The Kahala Spa has both couples' massage and treatment rooms, and exclusive brands of spa products. Each unit spans 550 square feet with such amenities as private infinity tubs, part of many of its signature treatments. The excellent sushi bar at Hoku's has Japanese trained chefs, while the newly redecorated Verandah lounge has introduced a trendy menu with global cuisine. The Kahala, which opened in April of this year, serves Napoli-style Italian cuisine. The resort is pet-friendly, with only a $150 pet fee for animals 40 pounds and under. Keep in mind, Hawaii has a strict quarantine requirement for any animals entering the state because it is a rabies-free location. Guests must put their animals in quarantine straight from the airplane and provide a rigorous set of documents. A fun fact: Both the original Hawaii Five-0 TV series and its current reboot have used The Kahala for location shooting, and the hotel has been featured in many works about architecture, travel and life in Hawaii.
