Kahala Hotel Debuts Revamped Ballrooms in Honolulu

The Kahala Hotel & Resort in Honolulu, Hawaii, has announced a facelift for its over 13,000 square feet of indoor meeting space, with an emphasis on its two ballrooms.

"The ballrooms have been given a complete decor redo from floor to ceiling to keep everything chic and fresh and add to the classic Kahala feeling that has made us a favorite over the years," John Blanco, the resort's managing director, said in a statement.

Among meeting room upgrades already completed at the 343-room hotel are new carpeting, wall coverings, furniture and artwork. By the end of the year, the ballrooms—the 2,700-square-foot Waialae Ballroom, which can accommodate as many as 120 people, and the 8,800-square-foot Maile Ballroom, which can accommodate as many as 450—will also have 6-foot-by-9-foot LCD walls on which meeting planners can seamlessly project images and presentations.

"The new LCD video walls will be the latest technology to enhance everyone's experience in the newly redone space," Blanco said.

In celebration of its updated ballrooms, the Kahala has announced a "Shouldn't You Get Credit?" promotion. Available for meetings that are booked prior to March 31, 2009, and actualized prior to Dec. 18, 2009, it includes a 5 percent master account credit for groups booking 100 room nights or less and a 10 percent master account credit for groups booking more than 100 room nights. Additionally, new groups booking at least 10 rooms per night during their event will receive a 10 percent discount off banquet food and beverage pricing.
