Kahala Life reflects the distinction of this world-class hotel. Within these pages, you'll discover the people and places that make this vibrant destination worth visiting again and again.
In this issue, you'll get to know some of Hawai‘i's tastemakers, doers and rising stars. From hat weaver Aloma Wang whose passion is to perpetuate the traditional art; to top female mixologists Julie Reiner (our hotel's very own Beverage Artist In-Residence), Chandra Lucariello and Jen Ackrill, Kahala Life gives you a peek into their lives and creative minds and perhaps equally important for all of you visiting, their take on O‘ahu for where to go and what to do during your stay.
Also in this issue, you'll soon learn where to satiate your craving for the best locally sourced fare here in town, as well as get plenty of other suggestions for shopping, activities and more. Even those who call Hawai‘i home only part of the time still have their favorite places to frequent when they make their way back. Case in point: the gorgeous Keke Lindgard. The local-gal-turned-top model gives us her personal list of places they go to when she finds herself on this side of the Pacific.
Whether you have a few days or only mere hours, Kahala Life makes the perfect companion to exploring the city and beyond.
Mahalo for making The Kahala Hotel & Resort your Hawaiian home away from home. We hope you experience many memorable moments with us. We look forward to welcoming you back again very soon.
With warmest aloha,
