Smallest and best position in Poipu. Rooms are fine though not as de luxe as you'd expect from the rest of the hotel- and the price. Bartender Jim makes a great mai tai and Red Salt restaurant excellent.

Review of Koa Kea Hotel and Resort
Apr 21, 2011
I travel a lot, mainly with my dogs, but decided to take a short trip to Kauai by myself for my birthday. The Koa Kea was ideal for singles and couples. It was quiet and upscale. The restaurant, The Red Salt, was amazing, and I enjoyed every part
of my stay. The bed was super comfy!

Short drive from hotel
The little town of Koloa was ideal for shopping or grabbing a bottle of wine. If you want adventure try ziplining with Just Live, it was truly an exciting adventure or Hiking with Eric, if you enjoy hiking and sightseeing. Also, the spa at the Koa Kea had great services.
