Resort adds glam to Coconut Coast with fantasy pool and luxury condos
The beachfront resort spreads over 12.6 acres with a 300,000-gallon fantasy pool in the heart of it. Units range from hotel rooms to two-bedroom vacation condos, located in seven low-rise buildings across an expanse of manicured lawns dotted with pools, waterfalls and slender palms. Outrigger Waipouli Beach Resort opened in 2007 and has a decidedly upscale look and feel, exemplified by the use of exotic wood and imported stone in accommodations. The Building Industry Association of Hawaii recognized the resort as a Parade of Homes "standout."
Highlights
  • 300,000-gallon fantasy pool with meandering river and dual serpentine slides
  • Full-service Spa by the Sea
  • Complimentary wired Internet in every unit
Location

Centrally located on Kauai's east coast between Kapaa and Wailua, the Outrigger Waipouli Beach Resort is just a 40-minute drive to Princeville or Poipu, giving guests easy access to the north and south shores of Kauai.

Rooms
Condos at the Outrigger Waipouli Beach Resort have a distinctly upscale vibe created by rich Indonesian woods and Peruvian travertine accents. Granite countertops and top names in appliances in the full kitchens -- Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Fisher/Paykel, among them -- set a level of luxury and quality likely to appeal to discerning guests. Condos range from 898 to 1,853 square feet, giving families room to move. A few hotel rooms are also available, adding convenience for wedding parties and other groups traveling together. Maid service can be requested for a fee.
Features
Walk out onto Kauai's longest beach, a three-mile strand of creamy sand where vacationers can stroll or sun to the rhythms of the rolling Pacific. Among the amenities at the Outrigger Waipouli Beach Resort are a 4,000-square-foot spa where visitors and locals choose from a full menu of massages, facials and other indulgent treatments, and a restaurant with a focus on locally grown, organic produce and fresh fish (open happy hour and dinner only). A small fitness center open 24/7 keeps workout junkies happy. Guests who want to create their own local dishes can use grills on the property and shop for groceries just across the street.

25 yr anniversary celebration

Very nice place to stay. Beautiful kitchen. Our 1 bedroom had a large bathroom with 3 sinks and 2 toilets! Great having a washer and dryer right in the unit. Also had it's own water heater so no chance of running out of hot water. It was pretty quiet but on a few occasions the gardeners started their work too early. The only other issue was the bed was a bit too soft for our liking.

Excellent for families!

The resort is perfect! There are two slidings in a big river-like swimming pool and they have a small sandy beach for kids to play in, it is also suitable for the smallest toddlers. The only thing is that there are not enough umbrellas, there only some at the tables around the pool. So you can't lie down in the shade, you have to sit at a table. Luckily the pool wasn't busy so we could have a table with umbrella every time we went to the pool. Don't expect too much from the beach restaurant Oasis. If you go for dinner, ask for Henry, he is a great waiter and will make your dinner evening a blast! As for the one bedroom condo you have everything you need: a large kitchen with cooking plate, oven, microwave, dishwasher, toaster, blender, everything. Very convenient. A lot of room to stack your food supplies. There is a dvd player and two tv's (one in the bedroom). The king bed is a bit too soft so I had the feeling to lie in a hammock every night. But it is better than a bed that is too hard. The washing machine and dryer are even more convenient when you have kids. The resort is very clean, very luxurious and if we'd come back we definitely will book it again! As it is affordable and with kids you want at least one bedroom. But mind you, this is not a hotel, although they provide towels and amenities (even for the dishwasher)! There are hotel services available (cleaning), but you have to pay for it. For us it was just great. So if you're looking for a good price/quality luxurious one or two bedroom condo, I'd say: go for it! You won't regret it!

Location perfection

Loved the location - Perfect spot to explore the island, easy to find from the airport. Loved coming back and using the hot tubs after a long day snorkelling or surfing.

Paradise

My significant other and I researched and researched before picking a hotel. This was our first time to Hawai'i and we wanted everything to be perfect. Outrigger exceeded our expectations. The location is perfect as it is smack dab in the middle of the North and South beaches. While the beach here definitely isn't swimmable, it gives a beautiful view of the sunrise and if you pay attention, there are really cute little crabs on the beach early in the morning. The pool is beautiful though it was slightly chillier than I was expecting. Our room was completely stocked with everything! Pots, pans, silverware, etc in the beautiful kitchen. The soaker tub in the bathroom was fantastic after a day of walking and soaking up the sun! Definitely recommended!

While the restaurant on the grounds (Oasis) is convenient, the food is not worth the cost. Just walk across the street to Safeway and cook yourself a meal.

Nice room, crummy service

The physical furnishings of our 1 bedrm ocean view condo were very nice. The location is only notable for being close to a grocery store. The facilities are nice but quality of service is poor (ie every 3 day cleaning was very superficial and we were refused a request for extra soap or towels with this). Little touches like coffee filters and laundry detergent would have been nice. The pool looks nice but is too overrun with children to be enjoyable for adults. Overall the facility was nice, but we didn't feel it was a good value for the price.

Great resort!

This is a great resort, especially if you have younger children. The pool is awesome and the rooms are nice and large. The beach is pretty, albeit too rocky for swimming but the pool is safer for little ones, anyway. We had a fantastic time here and with a kitchen and in-suite laundry included, there is no need to leave the resort if you don't want to!

Beautiful spacious rooms

Top notch appointments- sub zero frig, Wolfe oven, granite & travertine, great mattresses and baths. Huge 2 bed 3 bath w living area 2 lanai's & balcony. Safeway across the street, well located for travel. The room has everything you need include wash/dryer and 3 plasma tvs. Comparable to a Westin with lots of space & kitchen. Well kept pool 3 sand bottomed jacuzzis water slides outdoor BBQ's and right on the ocean. Koi pond and great gardens. Kapa'a has shopping and restaurants and nothing on island is far. 25-30 min to Hanalei, 20-25 mins to spouting horn & south shore. Lihue airport just minutes. Take a helicopter tour see a few things and enjoy this facility. Really hated to leave and ave stayed at many places. Will be returning to this property!

Blue Hawaiian helicopter tour. Worth every $$. See inside all of Waimea canyon (w/o a 12 mile hike) and No Pali coast even when closed jan-may. This island has so much and is lush. Waterfalls from air are everywhere! Kamaiina. Then go to Hanalei town and drive to po'ipu. We only had 3 days and this made the trip. Try for 5 days or more.
