Excellent hotel on the beach in the beautiful south of the islands Kauai. It is a small hotel (compared to the big Sheratons and Mariotts and you would like to call it a boutique style hotel. It is very very clean, has the friendliest staff, great food and the location is close to the airport (about 20 min drive) but... More

When we were looking at hotels in Kauai, we wanted to make sure that we stayed in a part of the island where the weather was less temperamental (we chose Poipu), and the hotel itself wasn't too big or impersonal. The Koa Kea was a great choice for us. The rooms were well appointed and the staff was very helpful... More

Very well appointed boutique beachfront hotel. We stayed here for an informal second honeymoon. The star of the show is the incredibly responsive and friendly staff at the hotel. Whether it's the restaurant, pool bar, spa, front desk, housekeeping, room service, or valet staff, they were all extremely pleasant and helpful. It's really clear that this place trains their staff... More

The service was outstanding. Clearly a well trained delightful staff with aloha all around. The location directly on a perfect beach cove ideal. To our surprise the good was also outstanding. Breakfasts were included for us, lunches by the pool side bar totally convenient and dinners outstanding. It's a small hotel, which suited us just fine, none of the rigamarole... More

This Hotel was a lovely place to stay at while visiting Kauai. We were celebrating our "good health" after each of us going through some serious health problems so we treated ourselves to something very special. We chose to have a beach front view and it was truly relaxing and a perfect view. We could see the sunset, whales, boats,... More

The service was beyond expectations! The Red Salt was the best on the island and equal to MAMA's on Maui. The special treat for our anniversary was a great surprise, Cotton Candy desert. We definitely would go back.

We have been on a lot of vacations and this was our favorite. We were here for our baby-moon/ birthday. The rooms were very clean and comfortable the food was great. The Red Salt had some of the best food on the island. Love Kauai and love the Koa Ke'a! We will be back.

Koa Kea is a great place to stay if you are on your honeymoon or just looking to get away with your significant other. It caters to adults so there are not a lot (if any) kids around. We had an amazing time. You have your own little private beach, a pool and a hot tub. There are always plenty... More

I can really only reiterate all of the positive things that have been said about this lovely resort set right on the water in Poipu. We were celebrating our 30th Anniversary and were greeted warmly at reception and led to a beautiful room with a bottle of champagne. Every employee was friendly and helpful, no matter what the request. We... More
