Aloha & Welcome Back

At The Kahala Hotel & Resort, we are diligently taking action to prevent the spread of Covid-19 in our community. The State of Hawai’i requires a mandatory 5-day quarantine and passenger verification process for those traveling to the islands. In order to bypass this 5-day quarantine, travelers can participate either 1) Pre-Travel Testing Program or 2) Vaccination Exception Program. These protocols are relevant for travelers from the United States and it's Territories. International travelers entering the U.S from another state or territory will be treated as domestic travelers when entering the State of Hawai'i. 

For international travelers flying directly into the State of Hawai'i from an international destination must present BOTH a vaccination record AND a negative COVID-19 test result (NAAT or antigen). The test needs to be taken no more than 1 day before boarding a flight to United States. The airlines will screen passengers prior to their departure to the U.S. For more information, please visit the CDC site

Please refer directly to the State of Hawaii website Safe Travels Hawai'i for more information. 

PLEASE NOTE: Individuals entering Oahu restaurants, bars, gyms and other establishments will need to show proof of full vaccination (two weeks after the final shot) or a negative Covid test (taken within the last 48 hours. We do NOT accept an at-home COVID-19 test result.). For more information about the city’s Safe Access Oahu Program, please visit here

The Kahala Hotel & Resort is requiring that all employees be vaccinated or submit to weekly Covid-19 testing. The health and safety of our employees and guests is always our top priority.
