We traded our Starwood Princeville Ocean Resort Villa in Kaua'i for a week here It's ok but not nearly as nice as it could be. Hardly any closet ,drawer space, small room, no tub, lousy seating, poorly positioned tv for viewing, small kitchen area with not much in the way of dishes. Basically an upscale motel room, not a chalet...

We stayed one night in a tawa tree house unit at this hotel in November, 2016. The duplex unit was stunning with a deck and great views, and it was excellently equipped. Very quiet and secluded. However, the only free wifi service was in the hotel lobby quite a walk downhill from our unit. Also, parking was a long ways...

The room was a really good size, I would recommend the larger Kauri room with the kitchen facilities, its worth the extra cost. Very peaceful in a beautiful native setting. Even though the weather wasn't so good, the weekend was amazing. Can highly recommend the restaurant, excellent quality
