If you’re looking for all the comforts of home in a distant place, take a trip to Hawaii. Smack dab in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, you can’t get further away from stress, yet closer to great shopping, than this remote American state.
If you’re planning to take a trip out this way, we recommend staying at The Kahala Hotel and Resort. It’s the sort of place where the staff know you by name once you’ve been there once or twice. This is possible, of course, because most of The Kahala’s staff have been working at this luxury resort for more than 20 years. And, the service that comes with that level of experience and dedication is what really sets this place apart (and why Kiwi Collection recommends it).
Take advantage of one of The Kahala Hotel and Resort’s 306 spacious guest rooms, or one of its 23 suites. Furnished in a style they call “Kahala Chic” (plantation style meets Asia), guests will feel quite at home with a fabulous view of the Pacific Ocean. The suites in particular have all been individually designed and guests staying in them can also receive a whole host of great services, such as being escorted to the suite by the manager, an unpacking and packing service, preferential ocean front seating at the restaurants and more.
Speaking of restaurants, The Kahala boasts five venues for guests to dine at, each offering their own unique ambiance and mood. Go for a casual bite at the Seaside Grill, cocktails at The Veranda and a true island experience at Hoku’s (renowned for its innovative meals combining Hawaiian, Asian and European flavours).
In terms of activities, there are plenty of ways to enjoy the sun and the ocean at the resort—watersports, relaxing by the pool, swimming with the dolphins or visiting the shopping arcade—everything is quickly accessible. And, shopping on Waikiki’s luxurious 2100 Kalakaua Avenue, where Tiffany & Co., coach, Yes Saint Laurent, Chanel, Gucci and Tod’s and Boucheron are found, is only a quick shuttle bus away.
Kick back and relax at this Hawaii luxury hotel. You’ll be glad you did it!
