Sun Down at Kahala Hotel Or is it Kahala Mandarin Oriental

I love the fact that I can take a photo and be in it too even if all you can see is a big head and teeth. 🙂

The ocean is gray, the sand does not look soft. My friends and I reflect after having driven out here for what we thought would be drinks and entertainment in one of the hotel lounges.

The Kahala Hotel, once known as the Kahala Hilton, where royalty and rock royalty once flocked to had lost its uniqueness. The lounges were closed, the restaurants deserted. So we sat out on the windy lanai to have a few drinks.

The hotel still has its lagoon with dolphins swimming and leaping and its attractive lobby . Maybe Sundays have become sacred and 6 PM was the new bed time. But I was in good company and enjoyed our repartee.

Don’t think I will return but if you would like to check it out because it looks so much nicer on their website here is the link. http://gohawaii.about.com. This hotel has changed names so many times I am not sure what it is but this site will update you. Go ahead and book a room if you have an extra three or four hundred burning a hole in your pocket. I guarantee this, you will have privacy and seclusion.
