The Kahala Hotel and Resort

Formerly the Kahala Mandarin Oriental, this hotel is located beyond Diamondhead well outside of the standard Waikiki area, and lies along the coast of the well-heeled Kahala neighborhood of East Honolulu.


This hotel is known both for its wedding packages as well as its dolphin swim program for which even non-guests can apply to make a reservation in a daily lottery.
