Explore beautiful Kauai from our centrally located OCEANFRONT Hotel! Hotel Coral Reef, built in 1956, is known to be the island's original boutique hotel. Located in the historical town of Kapa'a, which features a variety of unique stores and restaurants for visitors to enjoy, Hotel Coral Reef invites you to experience our beautiful oceanfront guest rooms located 50 steps from the warm waters of the Pacific Ocean. Perched on a gorgeous coral reef area (which is great for snorkeling!) our intimate setting allows you to connect and reflect with "The Garden Islands" natural beauty. Direct access to the Ke Ala Hele Makalae ("the path that goes by the coast") allows you to bike, walk, run, or stroll the magnificent East-side coastline. Scenic vistas offer glimpses of pounding surf, spouting whales, and if you are lucky, a visit from one of Hawaii's elusive monk seals. Our King and Double Queen rooms will allow you to relax, unwind, and rejuvenate your soul.

The hotel is managed by a local family who take pride in their beautiful Island. The Aloha spirit is truly alive here.. It is hard to hold on to any worries when you meet Auntie Sue who has a way to make anyone smile or laugh. The hotel owners really lucked out to have such

We had a great stay at the Hotel Coral Reef. The hotel goes above and beyond to make sure you have what you need - free use of beach towels, bicycles, boogie boards, videos and more. They are great for advice on what to see and do during your stay. Most rooms have an ocean view.
