This is definitely the most high-end shopping center on Oahu. Because of that shops like Gap don't get looted through like the one at Ala Moana. The best deals I have ever found at Gap have been at the one at Kahala mall. Also, the Banana Republic is much quieter than the Ala Moana counterpart. Also, the boutiques at Kahala you just can't beat. This is one of the few places are the island to carry a huge collection of Michael Stars. Also, the swimsuit shop carries both Salinas and BAnana Moon (my favorite swimsuit brands).
