I wanted a small boutique hotel right on the ocean and the Koa Kea was perfect! The rooms are fabulous, with comfortable beds and really nice bathrooms. I loved that you could open the door to the balcony and hear the ocean. We really enjoyed sitting out on our balcony and watching the surfers. The hotel's service is top notch, especially Jim at the Red Salt bar. He makes the best drinks!
We ate dinner at Red Salt and also had the sushi one night - both were fabulous!
Our stay on Kauai was the perfect vacation and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a low key, relaxing and beautiful Hawaiian island!
