Poipu condominiums cater to golfers and beach lovers
The 35-acre Castle Kiahuna Plantation & The Beach Bungalows embraces its sugar plantation heritage while adding contemporary touches. Gardens and koi ponds surround a historic home, now the resort's restaurant. Low-rise buildings house one- and two-bedroom condominiums among acres of manicured lawn splashed with vivid hues of plumeria and bougainvillea. Castle Kiahuna Plantation & The Beach Bungalows is relaxed and breezy with quiet spots for doing nothing at all, but when it is time for fun, Poipu Beach is just steps away.

Castle guests can also have fun at Poipu Beach Athletic Club. Visitors can take a dip in the 82,000 gallon resort-style pool with slide, play lawn tennis at 10 tennis courts, work out at the fitness center with separate weight and cardio rooms, and enjoy relaxing treatments at the 1,600 gallon spa with hydrotherapy jets.

Highlights
  • Beach Activity Center
  • Kiahuna Golf Club
  • On-site restaurant
  • Free high-speed Internet access
Location
Poipu Beach is a Hawaii vacation dream beach.  Within a one-mile stretch you can swim, boogie board, snorkel, scuba and learn to surf, and Poipu Beach Park is the ideal spot for young families. Exploring the west and east coasts of Kauai is easy from here.
Rooms
The Castle Kiahuna Plantation & The Beach Bungalows resort has 333 one- and two-bedroom condominiums in three-story walk-up buildings. The individually furnished condominiums have Hawaiian-themed decor, and all include a fully equipped kitchen, private lanai, sleep sofa in the living room and daily housekeeping service. Units range from 880 to 1,770 square feet.
Features
This is an excellent resort for families, golfers and beach lovers. Castle Kiahuna Plantation & The Beach Bungalows has its own Beach Activity Center where guests can rent snorkels, fins and boogie boards by the day or week. Rather not take time away from beach lounging to shop? The Grocery Guys will shop for guests and deliver the goods to their condominium while guests are out having fun. And if the mood strikes to have a family barbecue, fire up the community grills.
Dining
Plantation Gardens restaurant, surrounded by flowering gardens and 60-year-old koi ponds, is on-site at Castle Kiahuna Plantation & The Beach Bungalows, and open for dinner and cocktails. Set in a former plantation home, the restaurant serves up authentic plantation ambiance with its Pacific Rim and Hawaiian cuisine.

Kiahuna Plantation

This location is close to a great beach with a large sandy area. The furnishings were a little dated, but the condo was clean and the kitchen was well equipped. We were in a 1 bedroom with a sofa bed; when you have to leave the shutters open between den and bdrm to keep the breeze moving, there is not a lot of privacy or quiet. The staff of the plantation was very friendly and helpful. The pool was not very clean, and it closed at 6:00, with the waterslide shut down at 5:30. There are a couple of local grocery stores nearby, but they are pricey! If there are things you can use a lot of, it is worth the trip by Costco on your way in from the airport. There are plenty of shops nearby for clothes or trinkets. I would stay here again!

great beach, great condo, great time

Really efficient, attactive condo unit. Beautiful view. Poipu beach is a 5 minute walk and is gorgeous. I think Hanalei or Princeville is probably a better summer destination but Poipu was great. I pool would have been nice since Poipu beaches can be really rough in summer. The "advertised" pool at the tennis club is mediocre at best.

If you go to Kauai do the Steelgrass Chocolate Farm tour (all ages will enjoy it I guarantee) and the Kauai Backcountry Adventures tubing trip (you must book in advance from home). Its a blast.

Fantastic Getaway

This was our third return trip, to the Plantation. The grounds are very beautiful and well kept. There's no air conditioning in the rooms but we prefer the ocean breezes anyway! The ceiling fans were a nice touch and worked just as well.

Home on the beach.

We have stayed at the Kiahuna plantation many times now. These are condos that are privately owned and then rented back out. Each one is different since they are all different owners. Every room is very close to a nice beach with a little wave action. It is a short walk from a protected beach that is good for the less experienced swimmer and also for some of the better snorkeling. The plantation is usually very quiet and has pretty gardens. The kitchen in every unit makes the vacation so much easier. We love to go out to restauarants but think it is a hassle to have to do this for every meal. A full sized coffee maker in the mornings is much better than being forced into a starbucks every morning. Nice lazy and relaxing mornings! This is not a 5 star resort but one we enjoy more than those. Plus, its far more cost effective.

Look into Capt. Andys sailing adventures while on the island. Very friendly staff and a nice outing that was well worth the cost.

Castle resort

Rooms by gardendeluxe have great view but close busy road at night not very noisy but once in a while you hear sirens. The room was comfortable except no room service and clean towels. You have to pay extra for fresh towels. The room is better than Partial ocean view rooms.

money saving for family

We've stayed all over Kauai, this spot is ok. If you have small children that enjoy the pool everyday, this isn't the best spot. the Pool is located across the main road, very busy, you must cross with caution, it is a nice pool, with lots of rules. the beach during the summer is not safe for kids, high tides. You must drive to a more suitable beach. The cottages are not air conditioned, ours had outdated appliances few things worked well. You can hear all the conversations of those around you, since all have the windows open. There is a huge area for kids to play outside, bring a ball. or buy one when you get there. Try to get close to the ocean. If your on a budget then this works well, if you don't mind driving to beaches or taking a walk to reach one.

Third island trip

The bungalows are nice and roomy and relatively up to date but since they are privately owned, can be very different from each other. My wife and I had tons of room because these are really suited for families or larger groups. No air can be a bummer if the nights are really humid which some of ours were. This was our third trip to the islands and we prefer Maui the best.
