We stayed for 7 nights in January, 2017 and are torn about the property. The grounds were just beautiful. It’s a very lush setting with plantation type buildings and the gardens are amazing. The beach is wonderful and we saw several monk seals and green sea turtles actually “on” the beach during our morning beach walks. Just sitting at the...

I have stayed twice here over the last 2 years. Kiahuna Plantation has many great features but you will need to be willing to compromise on some things in order not to be disappointed with the units. First the good: beautiful and peaceful grounds with choice of 3 very nice beaches to to walk to (Sheraton beach, Marriott beach, and...

Dear adrock3000, Thank you for your review. We are happy to hear you love our grounds and location. We are aware that some of our units are a little dated. The units are individually owned and we try to work with the owners to update them. I think you will find many units have been renovated over the years. Unfortunately,...

We found this accommodation through VRBO/Home Away and booked directly through Outrigger Resorts. While the grounds and location are absolutely beautiful, the room itself had some major short comings. We requested a room specifically for two single travellers and were assured that there would be bed in a bedroom and a sofa pullout. There was indeed a bed in the...

I have read some of the earlier reviews and just wanted to say we have been coming to the Kiahuna for many years and you need to know that the Outrigger section is more updated than Castle hence the price. These are older condo's but the location is wonderful and they always remind me of Hawaii. It did bother us...

Dear cruisestc1, Thank you for selecting Kiahuna by Outrigger. We appreciate your comments. Great suggestion regarding turning the ponds into a pool. Unfortunately, there are use restrictions imposed by the landowners. We hope you will return one day. Aloha, Gana Maheshwaran General Manager, Kiahuna by Outrigger

I'm speechless! Paradise. We can cook for ourselves in our rented condo. Close to shops, restaurants, beaches, fitness classes and it's quiet. 👏🏻🌴 Sunsets are beautiful. Good parking at Kiahuna Plantation. Easy island to drive and explore. Friendly guests and staff. Gardens and lawns are lush and well maintained. We will return.

Our family stayed at the Kiahuna Plantation after the Christmas holiday for a week during our first trip to Hawaii. We thoroughly enjoyed the Kiahuna property. The landscape and gardens are lovely with broad canopy trees and beautiful cactus gardens. We stayed in Unit 308 which was clean and very comfortable and met all our needs. It was a short...

The Kiahuna Plantation Resort exceeded our expectations as I had become nervous in the weeks leading up to our trip after reading some reviews. Our one-bedroom condo was close to the road, however the noise was never an issue as it's a relatively quiet road after 6 or 7pm. The beach is gorgeous with waves perfect for beginner surfing or...

Beautiful grounds, convenient less rainy location than other places on the island. The unit we rented was privately owned and furnished by the owners. It was reasonable well appointed but not having a cutting board in the kitchen (understandable for hygienic reasons but...) was really awkward but other than that it had everything we needed. The interior had some deferred...

I am truly sorry that you did not enjoy your stay here at our beautiful property. Our pool is located a short distance away across Poipu Road, but our guests really do enjoy the facility, as it was completely renovated over the past two years with many great features added. We do feel that our compensation was adequate and appropriate....
