We stayed in room 122 from feb 9 through 19, 2015. The condo was on the first floor even though we had requested an upper floor 6 months ago and followed up 2 other times before arriving. It would of been nice to just hear, we put you where we can the day you arrive... Anyways, condo 122 was a... More

1 bedroom condo is roomy. Nice kitchen. Odd layout on bathrooms. Outdated tub/shower for resort property. Nice balcony. Definitely go for 2nd or 3rd story for ocean view. Not much insulation between units. Small pool but nice. Property very well kept. Walking path accessible to public beach. Nice property.

My wife and I just spent a great week in Kauai at the Kaha Lani, and we could not have been more pleased, particularly with the very central location and the world class Pacific view. We made our trip (our second to Kauai after a 29 year hiatus) to introduce my wife to snorkeling and we couldn't have designed a... More

Our ninth wonderful stay at the Kaha Lani -- with another booked for November. Breathtaking views, ample options for long beach walks (about 25 minutes to the next resort in one direction) and the well facilitated Lydgate Park in the other direction. Excellent walking or cycling on the Kauai path, lovely walk to twice weekly farmers' market. The staff is... More

Only complaint - 3 bedrooms are only on third floor. Had my elderly father with us n walks with a cane . Difficult for him at times. Needed 3 bedrooms for 5 people. Would be nice if there were elevators. Decorated nicely, close to beach , very private. People were very nice. Location was great. Beach was very nice and... More

Just returned from a wonderful Kaui vacation. Located just 10 minutes from the airport and 5 minutes from stores and restaurants. Kaha Lani is a wonderful place to stay, the grounds and building exterior are well maintained. I am convinced unit 320 provides the best ocean view on the island. Every day we saw countless whales spouting and breaching from... More

Kaha Lani is a true jewel on Kauai. They are condos which are individually owned and decorated and have a real island feel. Our condo was close to the beach and you could hear the ocean from every room. It has a nice central location and is off the main road. You can literally walk MILES of sandy beach! Very... More

Kaha Lani is a medium-sized condo complex with on-site management services that rent out the units for guests. Hotel services are minimal but sufficient. Our unit (320) had a fantastic view of the beach. First and second floor units would actually have a view of palm trees in front of the beach. There is no elevator so the upper two... More

This was our second stay at Kaha Lani. Love the location! We had a second story, oceanfront condo, recently refurbished. The king size mattress was brand new & we slept great. Never got tired of the sound of the ocean and the wonderful sunrise that greeted each day. The grounds are immaculate, as was the condo. We definitely will be... More

We stayed in a very nice 1 bedroom condo facing the ocean with a large lanni. The condo had everything that we needed including a fully equipped kitchen. The grounds including the pool area were well maintained. The Kaha Lani is at an excellent location, not far from the airport and less than a hour drive to everything on Kauai.... More
