Plantation-style goes upscale on Kauai's Royal Coconut Coast
Set on 25 acres along a three-mile beach -- Kauai's longest -- this resort evokes the graciousness of the plantation era but with a host of contemporary amenities. The beach, which is perfect for sauntering or sunning, is not for swimming. No problem. Kauai Beach Resort has four pools, a beachfront sand-bottomed pool and a fantasy pool with a 75-foot lava-tube water slide among them. Two restaurants, a lounge, a fitness center and a spa round out the facilities. And when guests want to explore further afield, Kauai's east coast is an ideal spot from which to do it.
Highlights
  • Fantasy pool with 75-foot lava-tube water slide
  • Series of concerts and programs promoting Hawaiian arts and artists
  • Hawaiian Rainforest Spa
  • Complimentary bocce
  • Complimentary airport shuttle
Location
Kauai's Royal Coconut Coast is rife with sacred sites and groves of slender coconut palms, with its character shaped in part by long, curving Wailua River, the only navigable river in all of Hawaii. A stay here should include visits to a trio of sites, Fern Grotto, Secret Falls, and 80-foot Wailua Falls, made famous in the opening scene of TV classic "Fantasy Island."
Rooms
Accents such as louvered doors and wood floors recall plantation style, but the old plantation homes didn't have what these rooms at Kauai Beach Resort have: travertine marble in the bathrooms and iPod docks in the living rooms.
Features

There's a distinctly Hawaiian feel to Kauai Beach Resort with its island architecture, but also a culture of sharing and promoting authentic Hawaiiana that sets it apart. The resort hosts events all year, including local musicians who share their art and stories, benefit concerts supporting the perpetuation of Hawaiian language and music, and a festival featuring the state's top slack-key artists. Check the annual calendar and plan your trip accordingly.

 

Although the beach out front isn't safe for swimming, Lydgate Beach Park, a couple of miles away, offers excellent swimming and snorkeling.

Best hotel on Kauai

This was our second time at the Kauai Beach Resort in two years. It is so peaceful, the grounds are beautiful and the staff is so friendly. We can't wait to go back and would highly recommend it. The central location on the island is also very convenient. It's only 10 minutes from the airport

Relaxing experience

The staff was very helpful and cooperative. The people at the desk, security, the room help, it was all excellent. The refrigerator in the room had issues and their was no microwave. But the beds and bathroom and all was great. The had many activities at our hotel, more so than some of the more expensive resorts. Maybe valet parking is worth the extra $3 dollars a day. The elevator has some issues but having the expedia agent located at the hotel was very convenient. It was a great value for the cost. They, the hotel staff, had a great attitude and spirit. Thank you.

Just ok

Most of the staff was helpful. Had one bad night at the bar shutters. When first check in gave the wrong room and when moved to another room still wasn't what I expected for paying for an ocean view room. Buffet on Saturday was good. Room service wasn't great. All in all ok if you are just sleeping there and get around the island.

room cleanliness

cockroches found in our room, when told to the hotel staff, she didn't even sound very apologetic. Very disappointed at her service, check in was also very slow at this hotel and not very efficient. after our room was switched, It was okay, so overall it was not too bad except for this one incident.

Kauai -- incredible views and wonderful getaway!

The Kauai Beach Resort is in a great location -- close to the airport, Lihue and equally accessible to Poi Pu and Princeville. The staff are super and helpful and has one of the best beach areas to walk on the island. Always a super time and a great value!!
