Plantation-style goes upscale on Kauai's Royal Coconut Coast
Set on 25 acres along a three-mile beach -- Kauai's longest -- Aqua Kauai Beach 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. Aqua 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 Aqua Kauai Beach Resort have: travertine marble in the bathrooms and iPod docks in the living rooms.
Features

There's a distinctly Hawaiian feel to Aqua 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 from Aqua Kauai Beach Resort, offers excellent swimming and snorkeling.

Fantastic Location between two Cities

Clean pleasant place with very spacy rooms and well done garden and pool area. Would be great if there was FREE WIFI in the rooms and not just in Lobby area.

Relaxing, need car for Kauai

The rooms are clean and the staff are friendly. The pool area is very well maintained, although the water is quite cold (we didn't end up swimming because of that - mainly kids in the pool who don't seem to care!). I thought the food/beverages were decently priced and tasted good. I actually thought the food at the hotel was better than most of the other restaurants we went to in the area. You definitely need a car to explore the island (unless you are content sitting by the pool). You can't swim in the ocean as the surf is too strong, but you can take a nice stroll on the beach. My only major complaint is the gym. The machines are rusted and it looks pretty disgusting. I was hoping to hit the gym during my stay, but decided it wasn't worth it on such old machines.

Great hotel

This was Avery nice hotel. The room was very clean and in good repair. I would have liked an updated TV. No flat screen. However, I found that other towels in Hawaii were also behind the times, TV wise. Also the hotel provided an in room wired Internet connection,but not wifi. Not good for tablet users. However, wifi was available in the lobby. All in all, I would stay here again. The breakfast was wonderful!

Good for go with friends

Very good location, next to the airport. The Hotel has a beautiful beach in front of and a zone with swimmingpools big, confortable and beautiful too. In general the staff it wasn't friendly, like if they was making a favour... I don't think this is a kind of treat do you need to recive from a Hotel with 4 stars, because in any cheap restaurant, the waitress is more educated than them. I'm very happy with all the pack and with the service with Cheap Tickets, we can take the plane, the hotel and the car together and it was very good for us.

mountain view rooms

When we were first assigned a room it was a "mountain view" room. It was actually a view and smell of stinky dumpsters, kitchen garbage, and a scrufty hill. Suggest you upgrade as we did if you have a "mountain view". The other room was great. Perfect place.

Fun vacation getaway

Hotel is a very nice! The staff were very nice and helpful. The location of the hotel is very close to the Airport (less than 10 min drive) and driving to the North side where most of the action is about 5 miles away. RENT A CAR. The hotel pools and jacuzzi's are very lovely and enjoyed them. There is also a water slide for kids but i didn't go on that so can't really comment on it. Beach is close by too but its very rocky so really not meant for swimming. My room was a okay sized(mountain view), with twin beds. Usual stuff with flat screen TV and a small fridge. Beds were very comfortable. The AC was a bit weird because it was in Auto mode...kept going on and off. All in all i love this hotel. I would go back in a heart beat.
