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.

Disappointed

While we have been to the Kiahuna Plantation twice before, this visit did not live up to the previous experiences. Specifically the management, Castle, deceived us as to the "Garden Deluxe" accommodations. The room was actually in one of the big box buildings right next to the road, which we heard all through the night. Additionally,their onsite personnel were discourteous and indifferent to our concerns, only attempting to profit from their false advertisement by trying to have us pay additional monies to relocate to an "off-road" accommodation. We highly suggest anyone desiring to stay at the Kiahuna Plantation, actually a beautiful place, contact Outrigger, the other management firm of the facility. Ask to see a map of the facility and select one of the small bungalows to reserve.

Beauty and comfort rolled into one.

Wonderful location for many different types of activities. The grounds and beach were pristine. Our unit had all new appliances,bed and carpeting. Very comfortable.Friendly and approachable staff. The rooster population took some getting used to,but comical in the end. Our first visit to the islands and hopefully not the last. Will definitely return to the Plantation.

Kauai Vacation

The trip was perfect except for the condition of our condo. The unit was very outdated. Carpet needed cleaning. I was very disappointed in Kiahuna Plantation.

Mostly good; good winter beach access

Clean; nice view; nice lanai; friendly staff; great location for winter beach use; not so great location for food--nearby restaurants are not impressive for the price. First condo vacation rental, but seemed well stocked. Suggest more free coffee and other details with house keeping service. Many other visitors to Poipu seemed a bit aloof and of a country club mindset. No AC, but lots of fans and ventilation; beware of summer travel.

Great Place to stay!

Great place to stay with beach access. Rooms are somewhat dated but comfortable and equipped with everything you need. The grounds are beautiful and well kept. Beach towels and chairs are provided. The only drawback is the pool is across the street and not very convenient.

Since you have a kitchen, drive up to Lihue and do your shopping at K-mart or Walmart. The prices are about the lowest on the island. The big store in Koloa also has some of the better bargains.
