Kiahuna Plantation is a great laid back place to stay. Not too upscale with a little beachy cottage funk but a very comfortable and an enjoyable home away from home equipped with everything you need. It has great proximity to the beach, snorkeling, paddle boarding, surfing and is easy walking distance to great restaurants and other resorts. The grounds are... More

For families, couples (or even singles) looking for relaxed, "old-style" Hawaiian elegance, Kiahuna is unmatched on the tranquil "Garden Island" of Kauai. There are numerous other hotel options in the Poipu area (the island's sunny side), but none offers the beautiful, low-density setting of Kiahuna. Bungalows are surrounded by exquisitely maintained tropical garden landscaping. Through open louvers, guests can enjoy... More

This was my third stay at Outrigger in Poipu. I love the location but the quality of the stay depends on the unit that management assigns to you. I have NEVER stayed in the first condo they put me in, so arrival is always a chore. They get away with giving you minimal, partial ocean view if you pay for... More

This resort has a lovely beach and is excellent for weak swimmers with a strong interest in snorkeling. It is also perfectly positioned to watch the sunset each evening. A third real plus is that there are so many great restaurants within walking distance meaning everyone can enjoy happy hour. The grounds and gardens are impeccably kept and the staff... More

We choose the Kiahuna Plantation because it was close to a seminar we were attending on the SouthShore. The property is truly beautiful ~ but that's where the compliments end. The condo itself is not very nice and super tiny for a 1-bedroom. The bottom cabinet in the kitchen was terribly broken and would not close. The bathroom is a... More

This was our first time staying on Kauai, so we didn't really know where to stay. It is a big complex and each condo is individually owned, so you can have a different experience at each place. Our condo was about a 5 minute walk to the beach, which we didn't mind. The complex is very large, but is well... More

This was my first time in Hawaii and I had a wonderful time. The grounds at Kiahuna Plantation are so beautiful. The beach was beautiful but a little rough. Poi Pu State park is a great place to snorkel though and is walking distance. The condo that I had was a little outdated but was fine for me. The staff... More

We were here for 2 weeks in 2 units with our whole family. The resort was able to arrange ground floor condos right next to each other and located nicely between the beach and the pool. The advantage of the ground floor is access to a lovely grassed area and the disadvantage is a few more bugs, but it's the... More

We booked here for a relaxing stay for our honeymoon. We stayed at a resort in Maui and came to Kauai for a more low-key place. We were building 40, room 406, which is furthest from the beach, which is nice for privacy. The room looks nice, but as the first night approached, the room filled more and more with... More
