    Great customer service

    We had our wedding planned for The Kahala but due to COVID mandates in Hawaii we had to cancel. The team at The Kahala were great and their word was good. They gave us our deposit back since we had to cancel due to COVID. I can't say all vendors in Hawaii have been this great, but would definitely recommend here. Thank you for all your help and understanding during COVID.

    We had a great wedding ceremony and reception at the Kahala Hotel & Resort

    We had a great wedding ceremony and reception at the Kahala Hotel & Resort; our family and friends were blown away by the beautiful site. They also loved how delicious the food was. Our wedding was beyond perfect! The event manager was very responsible and extremely helpful during our wedding preparations and on the wedding day. She even helped have a hotel room available for us several hours before check in! We were able to get ready and relax in our room before the ceremony, which greatly eased our stress. We would definitely recommend the Kahala Hotel & Resort to anyone looking for the perfect wedding spot.

    amazing service

    when my husband and i were looking for vendors, we left several messages for appointments all around Honolulu. When we entered Kahala's property, we were greeted right away and got a tour of the place, and from then on we felt very taken care of. We still have yet to hear back from the other resorts we left messages with, and we got married 06/30/2018
