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 vacation

Vacation improved after we asked to move from a dirty, outdated, no view room to an upgraded pricier room in the middle of the property for additional money. Can't beat the location, beach, free beach chairs and towels. Condo is great for cooking breakfast, lunch, which saves a ton of money.

Stop at Costco and local grocery stores on way to the Kiahuna to stock up on groceries. Go to the farmers market for fruits and veggies.

Castle Kiahuna vacation

Usually stay at Kiahuna Plantation..but with Outrigger not Castle...initially was assigned a dated,no view, room near road. Complained to front desk and was given option to move which we did and were very happy with remainder of stay. Staff are very friendly, housekeeping excellent, condos and grounds are nice with excellent location. Buy food at Costco, grocery stores, and farmers market and cook...you will save a ton of money. Foam ear plugs let you sleep peacefully if noisy neighbors or roosters crowing bother you! Love Kauai!!

Served the purpose

The garden view room we had in back by the street on the top of the property were just OK (needed a bit of upgrading) . Would have been better off paying more to be closer to the water. Had a kitchen. No A/C, but we knew that when booking. Was quite hot in the room. The pool was across the main street, Poipu Rd. Pool was nice. Centrally located in Poipu. Did the job but would likely stay down the road next time.

With small kids: Smith's Luau was fun, as was the Na 'Āina Kai's “Under the Rainbow” Children's Garden. Also, "Baby Beach" was a short distance driving from the hotel. The Poipu shopping village was close- good for the free hula and fire dancer shows.

Very disapointed, didn't get any sleep or relaxation there.

I was so exited to stay at this condo, I was so disaponted when I saw my unit. We were right next to the highway and they don't have windows only wooden shutters you can hear everything. The roosters wake you up every day at 4am. Our unit was so outdated the bed was extremely uncomfortable, the unit felt like a basement. The pool is across the hwy and has been left unkept, I could not tell the last time it was cleaned. The staff is nice and very attentive, but because of my condo I will never stay there again. There should be standards that the owners should have to update once in awhile.

Excellent Experience

Had a great time at this hotel, close to ocean. Snorkeling was terrific. Watched whales all day long from the beach at the hotel. Facilities and accommodations were excellent and if I return, I will definitely stay at this hotel.

Great location

We were only here one night, so it was a little pricey considering we did not take advantage of any of the resort's ammenities. The room was quite nice with decent furniture and care -- not 5 star, but didn't expect that. The location was great for getting around the island, although our unit was near the road, so quite noisy, especially the trucks early in the morning. Friendly staff.

Be sure to see Waimea Canyon and Poipu Beach. The biking and hiking around Hanalai are great. Try the bike ride down Waimea Canyon -- Outfitters Kauai is located just a short trip from the resort.
