Kahala is a posh neighborhood within Honolulu that is a balanced mix of longtime local residents, newer homeowners and celebrities visiting for a secluded and quiet escape. A great benefit to all, including visitors to our Kahala luxury rentals, is the opportunity for respite without losing accessibility to conveniences of things to see and do. Kahala's beaches are not farther than 10 to 15 minutes from Waikiki but are considerably less crowded.
Things To Do
If you're interested in seeing the other islands and have little time or plan to stay in a Kahala luxury rental for the entire length of your visit, consider an interisland air tour over six islands and a same day return to and from Hilo. An active and busy day, the itinerary offers a quality visit of key sites on Big Island.
Kahala and Waialae Beach Parks are gorgeous spots to pack a picnic and spend a day at the beach, both relatively private and freer from crowds and congestion than other Oahu beaches. Pick up a gourmet meal and spend the day in sunny splendor. All beaches in Hawaii are public, so feel free to find a spot near some of the resort beach locations. You can also schedule a massage treatment in advance and have a soothing experience by the ocean. Diamond head is nearby, as are cultural activities and water sports.
Eat And Shop
Resort dining is great for upscale, Asian fusion and local fare. The atmosphere is dreamy, whether you're indoors or outside because most of these spots offer a sea view. Short ribs, sushi, Japanese, Taiwanese, Hawaiian, French and more foods are available in the Kahala area.
Shop for toys, sports gear, leather goods, accessories and bridal items from local boutiques and take advantage of the brand name shopping while you're in town as well. The Ala Moana Center, Waikiki Beach Walk and Royal Hawaiian Center are also located in nearby Honolulu with several other shopping centers.
You can take TheBus on specific trips but a rental car is best for getting around in the Kahala area
