Happiness Is Here

The Experience

Happiness is cool waves lapping as you glide in the shadow of swaying palms.

Play with dolphins, relax on the beach, learn hula and so much more. Discover our unique resort experiences that keep experienced travelers returning year-after-year.

Luxury Rooms

Happiness is Hawaiian time: rising with the sun and relaxing with the tides.

Luxury suites, finely appointed rooms and some of the closest hotel beach accommodations on Oahu–just 40 steps from bed to the beach.

Culinary Treasures

Happiness is sparking your senses with every mouthwatering, Michelin-worthy bite.

Fine dining meets authentic Hawaiian flair. Elevate your palate at Hoku’s with multi-course menus or discover new favorites at Plumeria Beach House, The Veranda and Seaside Grill.

Our Location

Happiness is to find yourself a world away–yet in the center of it all.

Located on the gracious side of Diamond Head, we call The Kahala neighborhood our home. Stay just 10 minutes from downtown Waikiki but far from the hustle of city life.

Resort History

Happiness is to offer gracious service and Hawaiian hospitality to celebrities, leaders and travelers just like you.
