Description
The Kahala Hilton was one of Killingsworth's first luxury hotels. With 300 rooms and suites, all air conditioned, surrounded on three sides by golf courses and direct beach access, the hotel featured state of the art luxury amenities. The ten story building, with two rectangular wings, was set on its own private man-made lagoon, and catered to an upscale clientele. The location was key to the sense of exclusivity-- the hotel was located away from the main tourist areas and contained no convention facilities, which gave the property a more intimate appeal.
