Low-rise condos with tranquil gardens and ponds in Poipu.
The former home of Hector Moir, manager of Koloa Sugar Plantation, and his wife, Alexandra, sits at the heart of Outrigger Kiahuna Plantation, a 33-acre condominium resort. Guests today are welcomed in the same setting where the Moirs welcomed guests, and the gracious home overlooking ponds, orchids and a cactus garden houses the Plantation Garden restaurant. Low-rise buildings with plantation-era details evoke the charm of old Hawaii. You can't get closer to the beach than this, but you may occasionally share it with a sea turtle or monk seal.
Highlights
  • Alexandra Moir's legacy, Moir Gardens
  • Complimentary wired Internet in condos for guests with laptops
  • Poipu Beach with surf breaks, water sport rentals
  • Book one-bedroom oceanfront units at least six months out
Location
  • On Poipu Beach, with easy access to restaurants and shopping
Rooms
There are 333 one- and two-bedroom condominiums on 33 acres. Ranging from 620 to 1,180 square feet, all condos at Outrigger Kiahuna Plantation have complete kitchens, one or two lanais, and a pullout sofa. Maid service is available upon request for a fee.
Features
Guests share in several nice facilities nearby. Parents with children age 4-12 enjoy adult time while kids play next door at Sheraton's supervised children's program. Kiahuna Golf Club, a short drive away, offers Outrigger Kiahuna Plantation guests special rates and charging privileges at its restaurant and pro shop. Of course, beach lovers need only stroll a short way to get their fill of surf and sand.

Around 24 couples a year marry here, many under the spreading banyan tree. Those who want to say "I do -- again" can join a complimentary weekly vow renewal ceremony for up to six couples.
Dining
The on-site Plantation Garden serves up nostalgia and Pacific Rim cuisine. Outrigger Kiahuna Plantation guests are also welcomed at Joe's on the Green at Kiahuna Golf Course.

Outrigger Kiahuna Plantation

We were placed in the easternmost of the condo buildings. The room was very nice and spacious, with a full kitchen - which we used. Although we were booked with a "garden view" room, our building has only a limited "garden" and overlooks a bit of another hotel's buildings. We were also close to Poipu Rd. and could hear some traffic. Although the room and location were still very nice, without getting a beach view there are many more "garden view" buildings that appear to offer a nicer location than ours. We also had one of the farthest walks to the beach and the office/restaurant, but we were closer to the laundry. The on-site Moir Gardens and the beach are very beautiful. The beach is very clean and has great surf but you can swim. Poipu/Koloa are very nice - not too busy, close to the airport, and fairly centrally located on the island in that it is a roughly equal driving distance to either of the end-of-the-road locations. We went to both ends of the island (Koke'e and Ha'ena State Parks) for all-day hikes - spectacular!

Talk to Sherri (or anyone) down at nearby Brennecke's Beach Center. They are very nice and give you honest info about available activities! Check out their restaurant upstairs, too.

Absolutely Wonderful!

Kiahuna Plantation was a great place to stay. The condo was clean, with a lovely breeze blowing through at all times. The full kitchen was a plus as we bought food and cooked most our meals in. The staff were all fantastic. The beach was pristine along with the beach hut for chairs and towels. We usually come to Kauai 2-3 times each year and have stayed other places but will plan our next trip here. Location, condo, parking and internet(both free),the best. Stay here!!!

Buy your food at Costco and the local grocery stores...saves so much money for other things like Na Pali coast boating trips etc. Shop at Farmers Markets or fruit stands for fruits and veggies..e.g. papayas 25-50 cents a piece!

Exceeded expectations

The facilities and staf were excellent at Outrigger. However, the breakfast and lunch restrarant across the street and affiliated with the Outriggter refused to charge the meal to our room. The hostice said that "It was too much work to fill out all of the paperwork". Daily maid service was appreciated.

Very good hotel

Good location in the South shore of Kauai which is mostly sunny. The apartment was quite large including a large bedroom, a large living-room, a fully equipped kitchen, and a terrace with sea view. Ideally situated for activities (sailing, helicopter, hicking..), visits (Waimea Canyon, National Tropical Botanical Garden...), and discovery of numerous paradisiac beaches. The only small inconvenience is the fact that the swimming-pool is not exactly localized betweens residencies and the sea.

Great Beachfront

Spent much of the time on the beach in front of the resort. Very nice beach. The resort had beach towels and chairs available for free. Can rent umbrella, boards and other equipment inexpensively. Across the street is the mediocre pool, but we didn't care because we wanted the beach anyway. Also across the street is a small shopping center complete with shops, several restaurants, a small grocery and a Starbucks. The facility is older, but well maintained in very good condition. Beautiful grounds. Nice, but a little spendy, restaurant on site.
