If you want to get away from the bustle of Waikiki, but still have easy access to the bulk of Honolulu’s best restaurants, shopping, and sights, then the Kahala is a no-brainer. Located in an upscale neighborhood on the island next to an exclusive country club, this peaceful compound recently underwent a $75 million renovation. It’s perfect for families, with its own beach that’s far less hectic than any you’ll find closer to town and—a big draw for kids—a 26,000-square-foot dolphin lagoon, where six bottlenose dolphins frolic amid sea turtles, stingrays, and tropical fish.
