Kauai is dubbed the “Garden Isle” that makes every visitor’s tropical dreams come true. These five exquisite Kauai hotels make that so easy to see.
Kauai’s sunny south shore is where you’ll find Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort & Spa. This breathtaking beachfront resort is a classic Hawaiian staple when it comes to graceful grandeur. Lush gardens span across over 50 acres on-site. And finding fresh island flavor at romantic open-air resort restaurants is easy with plenty of choices from American to Italian to contemporary Hawaiian cuisine or sushi. With amenities aplenty from pristine pools, an award-winning golf pro shop (to complement Poipu Bay Golf Course) to open-air Anara Spa, this luxury oasis has everything you need for an island getaway.
Combine the true spirit of aloha and modernity and you’ll get Kauai Marriott Resort. You’re in luck if you’re all about fun in and out of the sun because this resort has endless options for both. After all, it sits on 800 lush tropical acres along Kalapaki Bay so how couldn’t it? Located in Lihue just two miles away from the airport, this resort has the largest one-level outdoor pool in all of Hawaii. If you need some R&R, visit their full-service Alexander Day Spa & Salon. And don’t forget about the two Jack Nicklaus-designed golf courses, eight tennis courts, five restaurants and Jacuzzis.
Treat yourself to a one-of-a-kind, quaint getaway at Sheraton Kauai Coconut Beach Resort. Kids and adults have their own sides in the infinity-edge pool surrounded by an oceanfront bar, relaxing lounge chairs and fire pits. Sip on specialty drinks at The Crooked Surf Bar and Restaurant and savor culinary excellence at Moamoa Hawaiian Fish House. Plus, this is a perfect location for accessing nearby Kapaa hot spots like Smith’s Tropical Paradise and Wailua Falls.
Discover island-style hospitality at Kiahuna Plantation Resort Kauai by Outrigger. The property’s lush 35 acres are dotted with cacti, orchid and succulent gardens, perfect for nature enthusiasts. Feeling at home is easy in tastefully furnished cottage-styled one- and two-bedroom condominiums with private lanais. If you’re in need of a quick and mini getaway, head to the Poipu Shopping Village across the street or nearby historic Koloa Town. It’s so easy to feel like you’re in your own island-inspired world here.
Hilton Garden Inn Kauai is right next to one of the very best family-friendly beaches on Kauai, Lydgate Beach Park. If you’re all about a classic family vacation, Wailua Bay is the place to be. With magical Kamalani Playground and Play Bridge for the kiddos and Wailua Golf Course and Sleeping Giant Trail for the adults, there are wild adventures for everybody. Just five miles from Lihue airport and a quick drive to Kapaa town, this beachfront hotel embraces Hawaii’s untamed beauty and charm unlike anywhere else.
