Elegant, understated, luxurious, gorgeous, perfect hotel

Fort Worth, Texas

I will not go back to Oahu if we cannot stay at the Kahala. It is sheer perfection. The staff are incredible, the food is terrific and the ambiance in every setting is sublime. it is a place you can relax and call home, albeit a very luxurious and indulgent home. The grounds are well planned and gorgeous. The beach is beautiful, the water is easy to get into and out of, there is no rush for beach chairs. We came here 3 years ago and were looking forward to when we could next come. We will not wait so long next time. We are coming back next year. The circle drive up to the front door is so welcoming with shallow long steps up into the side of the hotel. The lobby, reception area and front room next to the Veranda are gorgeous and just invite you to sit down and have a drink and enjoy the tropical breeze blowing through the hotel. I agree with the title another reviewer gave it, so I will close with it: BEST OF THE BEST.
