Your tropical oasis is closer than you think. With direct flights from Portland, travel to Hawaii is a breeze—relax, unwind, and let the wind take you to The Kahala. Since its opening in 1964, the legendary Kahala Hotel & Resort is an oceanfront luxury destination property that has become renowned for its gracious Hawaiian hospitality. Located just minutes from the world-class shopping and entertainment of Waikiki, The Kahala offers the exclusive ambiance of a neighbor-island experience. The beachfront resort is home to lush tropical gardens and a natural ocean-water lagoon, plus five restaurants on property led by a legendary new executive chef.
The Kahala is pleased to welcome Executive Chef Jonathan Mizukami, responsible for overseeing the overall culinary direction of the resort’s innovative restaurants, including the award-winning Hoku’s, and catering operations. Mizukami brings with him over 20 years of experience working in renowned restaurants across the U.S. and internationally, including a 10-year stint as sous chef at Thomas Keller’s highly acclaimed Napa Valley restaurant, The French Laundry. He gained experience training at Spain’s 3-star Michelin restaurant El Bulli, at Alinea in Chicago, Per Se in New York City, and in Restaurant Gordon Ramsay and The Fat Duck in England.
In addition to dining, service at The Kahala is unparalleled, with many staff members working at the resort for over 20 years, recognizing and addressing returning guests by name. Signature complimentary services include a welcome "oshibori" cool towel at check-in, Aloha Lei greeting and nightly turndown service to ensure each guest is celebrated with traditional island hospitality.
