Aloha & Welcome Back

At The Kahala Hotel & Resort, we are diligently taking action to prevent the spread of Covid-19 in our community. Currently, the State of Hawai’i requires a mandatory 10-day quarantine and passenger verification process for those traveling to the islands. In order to bypass this 10-day quarantine, travelers can participate either 1) Pre-Travel Testing Program or 2) Vaccination Exception Program (starting July 8th, 2021). These protocols are relevant for travelers from the United States


Currently, international travel restrictions prohibit European and other countries from traveling to the U.S. with some exceptions.
