“Yes, A wonderful place in Poipu”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

As a family of 4, we stayed in the Ocean-View 2 Bedroom Unit for 10 days. It was an excellent location for us; a 5 minute walk to Poipu Beach and Brenneckes Beach for snorkelling and boogie boarding. With the excellent information provided by Javed, we were able to discover more beaches, other activities, more entertainment and terrific food choices. Old Towne Koloa is only a 10 minute drive away and provides a variety of food choices and stores, without losing its small town charm. From the resort, we could walk to Casa di Amici for a wonderful evening meal or to Brenneckes Beach Broilers for drinks or a light meal. Or we made many tasty meal in our vacation rental with all the fresh fruit and fish available. We loved the fruit stands and farmers markets in the area. Poipu was easy to find from the airport, even in the dark at 11pm. I agree with the previous review by "packourbagsyyz". Poipu Plantation Resort was an excellent setting for our island getaway. I found it thru Tripadvisor and it lived up to all its excellent reviews.

Room Tip: The photos & website are an excellent representation of the resort. The rooms were large and th...

We stayed 5 nights in a one bedroom 2nd floor ocean view unit, the Macademia, and wished we didn't have to leave. It is a large and immaculate apartment with high, sloped ceilings and windows on three sides including three sets of sliding doors to a big balcony. We slept extremely well on the very comfortable bed. The kitchen is fully equipped. Management is friendly and knowledgeable. The grounds are attractively landscaped and well-kept. Poipu Beach is a 5 minute walk down the street.
I call this "the perfect place" because for us it was: quiet, understated, small property, well-located, friendly management. It felt authentic. We will definitely return!

I stayed here for 5 nights in July this year. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. The breakfasts each morning were absolutely amazing and Javed was an absolute gold mine of information on where to go and what to do while also providing fabulous insights into the history of the island. I would absolutely recommend as a wonderful location to stay while enjoying Kauai. I will definitely be back some time soon I hope.

We spent two nights here, staying in the Norfolk Suite (holiday rental rather than bed-and-breakfast). Our suite was spacious, the fittings of a decent standard for a holiday rental, the furniture solid and with plenty of storage space. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was a good size and generously supplied with towels. The kitchen had everything we needed for a bit of self-catering, but you could do full-scale cooking with no problems. There were adjustable blinds on every window to counteract the sun throughout the day, so we found we didn't need to use the air conditioning. The building is not new, but everything was very clean. Our balcony had an excellent view of the nearby ocean and the mountains inland.

Further afield, the grounds are very well kept and despite the number of people close by, very quiet. The laundry, located in its own building, was spotless. We didn't have a car, but there was plenty of parking space. The staff were approachable, thoroughly professional and very helpful. The Resort is set in a quiet neighbourhood, with the beach and some dining options five minutes' walk away. The nearest shopping centre (which has some very good dining options) is 20 minutes' walk away, though footpaths are lacking for most of the trip.

The Resort was just as described and really hit the mark for us. It had a pleasant and relaxing atmosphere and we felt at home right away.

Room Tip: The Norfolk Suite has a lovely view.

Our family of 4 ( two teenage girls and Wifey) just spent four nights at The Plantation. It's easy to get lost in this romantic slightly dark resort at night but boy this is a fabulous resort. We had a wrap around lanai in our partial ocean view condo. Two bedrooms and two bathrooms. A blessing with 3 ladies in the family! Huge kitchen/living space and minutes from the shore. Go watch the sun rise/set every day. You will see sea turtles and dolphins. Fantastic shady cool grounds. Chris and his team will provide you with all the beach equipment like coolers, body boards, towels and beach chairs you will need. His daily tailored touring tips and places to eat were spot on. Stay here and leave your dollars with the locals rather than stay in a resort and live in a bubble like the Truman show. You will save a fortune with the local tips on food and places to visit you get from Chris and the team.

My husband and me stayed in Poipu in December 2012 and it was one of the best places we've been so far. Great location... large, nice, clean room... wonderful Javed full of advice... homemade breakfast with fellow travelers...even a new pair of slippers - everything was so thoughtful, tasteful and welcoming in Poipu. The bedhead was right under the window which I personally do not prefer - other than that I would rate straight A. I wish we could go back someday! Highly recommended!

Aloha ritadotcom and thank you for reviewing our property. We are trying to do a better job of replying to reviews and sorry it took so long. The good news is, we have completely restored and renovation the Bed and Breakfast Inn since you were here.

I too didnt like the beds against windows and that has all been changed with moving doors, and arranging beds on a large wall. Our small and larger suites look amazing with all new hardwood furnishings, resorted hardwood floors, bathrooms, new a/c and so much more from our 2 1/2 month project. If you have time, take a look on our web site, bed and breakast page for the new photos.

We hope to see you again sometime in the future and for now, lots of aloha from us! Chris

If you're looking for a "state of the art" 21st century resort, Poipu Plantation is not for you. It felt more like the late 40's or early 50's, which was perfect for us. This is a small property, only 3 units in our building. It was tastefully furnished, spotless and more than met our expectations. It has a very tropical, lush feel. Our unit did not have an ocean view, but it was a quick walk to the beach. The closest spot is where folks gather to watch the sunset. There is a large public park nearby as well.
Poipu is a good base camp for exploring Kauai. We spent 4 days. Poipu and nearby Koloa are small towns, so shopping for some basics on arrival at Lihue makes sense. We would return.

Room Tip: There are some second floor rooms with a view, but you are close enough to the Pacific so if you wal...
