We booked Outrigger Kiahuna Plantation through Donna Bender of MauiCalls, who is an Outrigger Specialist. Comfortable room with beautiful ocean view. Enjoyed walks on the pristine beach. The resort grounds were nicely maintained with lush tropical plants and flowers. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. We will definitely be returning soon!

Such a wonderful facility. No, it's not the Marriott next door, but it's much less money AND it shares the same beach. Plus...a full kitchen so you can avoid the Marriott's (as well as the rest of Poipu) incredibly over-priced restaurants. Snorkling with turtles, playing in waves with my girls and building sandcastles on incredible golden sand are just a...

I was given a first floor unit on a corner abutting various trees and bushes, so I was supposed to expect the infestation of crawling bugs, including centipedes. I had to call the front desk from my cell phone because I was stranded standing atop a chair as the largest and longest centipede I'd ever seen rushed around the room...

I'm not giving it an excellent review because it was a downer coming from the Marriott - it looked older and dirtier. The light stopped working after the 1st day, there weren't enough towels provided in the room for all of us, the closet door didn't stay on its hinges but otherwise it was nice and cozy. The wifi worked...

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...

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...

We have stayed at Kiahuna Plantation 7 times - both on the Outrigger side and the Castle side. We love it for the beach front location & the breezy, bungalow feel. It doesn't feel like a standard time share facility or hotel. The units are individually owned. Some are very well maintained and others not so much. The front desk...

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...

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...

This place is very nice and stocked with everything you need. No air conditioning, but with the tradewinds, you don't really need it. Gayle was extremely helpful in helping us book different things to do on the Island. She really helped us save money, and see as many things as possible. The location is great, but honestly anywhere on the...
