Our recent stay at Koa Kea was outstanding. As has been mentioned in so many reviews, the attention to detail from the moment you arrive until you depart makes for a hotel experience that is a cut above a typical resort hotel stay. We took advantage of the IPrefer program that we learned about in a Tripadvisor review, booking an ocean front room and getting an upgrade to deluxe oceanfront. Our room was spacious, with a super comfortable king sized bed. Our bathroom had a deluxe shower as well as a large bathtub.
Our room was steps away from the beach. While not large, it was uncrowded and the variety of activities was impressive. We snorkeled daily and saw many fish, one sea turtle and tons of other marine life including a diverse array of sea urchins. We enjoyed watching the surfers and boogie boarders as well.
Breakfast at Red Salt was included in our room package and made for a great start to each day. Dinner at Red Salt was outstanding as well.
We decided while there that we will return to Koa Kea as soon as we can.
