We arrived on Oct. 17th for a 7 night stay and were professionally and warmly greeted by all staff. This hotel is a small and intimate hotel right on Poipu Beach and is sandwiched between two rather large complexes. It's a bit of private paradise sandwiched between the Kiahuna and Marriott so if you want a bit more action, it's... More

We stayed in room 218 for 5 nights. We are very fussy but could not fault a single thing at this hotel. Everything was amazing. The modern styling of the room with such a comfy bed, free valet service, friendly helpful staff, fabulous location so close to the beach and most of all the fabulous Red Salt restaurant. We planned... More

This is a small boutique property in the midst of some larger time share properties, however you feel as though you're worlds away. Our room faced the ocean and the pool area (room 210). They call it "ocean view", but the pool and the beach were literally the only things that separated us from the ocean. Fantastic view! The front... More

When I research a hotel, I usually look at the worst reviews. This one had none. Great location, nice, polished, and attentive services, spotless, comfy rooms and comfy beds. The balcony (not an ocean view) still had a nice view. Coming from Big Island’s Mauna Lani hotel with its gorgeous beach, open spaces, multiple pools, ocean view from every direction,... More

We spent our wedding/honeymoon week at Koa Kea (May 16-24, 2014) and we LOVED it! We had a partial ocean view room, in the eastern section and our room faced the east. It was nice because it was against a treeline which separated the neighboring property - that seemed more private than if we'd been overlooking the pool. The ocean... More

The staff were classy, especially Justin the sushi chef. Great sushi, very nice and quiet young man. He went out of his way to remember us and ask how the excursions were going on our honeymoon. The beach was private and nice, the facilities were great. Thanks for the bottle of champagne and nuts and sweet cards. Nice start to... More

We just returned (yesterday!) from this lovely hotel. It is personal, contemporary and gracious. Our room, which was on the side away from the Marriott, facing the ocean, the corner room on the third floor, was just the perfect location. The beds are so comfortable, the decorating soothing and tasteful. You are basically right on the beach, so sunsets from... More

My husband and I stayed here September 22 - September 30th. The hotel was just what we imagined! From our very first greeting throughout our stay every employee was extremely courteous and helpful in every way. I did a ton of research and this was the smallest hotel I could find on the island, roughly 100 bedrooms. Beautiful pool (perfect... More

This was our first visit back to Kauai in several years and we wanted a quiet place with great service. We got it, jackpot! This quiet, lovely spot had a staff that went the extra step. All employees were very friendly and would do what ever it took to make you comfortable. We asked for some extra pillows, done, no... More

Amazing property and service- everything that defines the aloha spirit wrapped in such a romantic and relaxing package! Our room & lanai were so perfect, and what a view!! It was also such a luxury to have the Red Salt restaurant on site that provided us with some terrific meals. Definitely 5 star on the Lobster Ravioli!!
