Lihue hotels

Lihue is a beautiful village on the Hawaiian island of Kauai, and is home to one of the largest sugar plantations in the state. The village is also home to several natural attractions, including the Wailua Falls, easily accessible to guests from their Lihue hotels. While Lihue is often crowded during the peak travel season during summer and winter holidays, travelers can find great accommodation deals offered by the best Lihue hotels during the off-season.

Lihue Quick Picks and Tips


Visit the Kauai Museum on Rice Street to experience indigenous life on the island. View the many exhibits housing artwork, pottery, textiles and informative videos. Also tour the Grove Farm Homestead, once a working sugar plantation.

Points of Interest

Visitors must see the Wailua Waterfalls, located just five minutes from Lihue. The falls may be viewed from a lookout position just to the roadside near the falls. Although there is a hiking trail to the bottom of the falls, the path is slippery and visitors hike at their own risk.


Gaylord's at Kilohana on Kaumaulii Highway features fresh menu items using produce grown on the restaurant's own farm. The Kilohana is a favorite among guests and locals and is located on the site of the historical Kilohana Plantation.


The Lihua Shopping Center features many familiar department stores, while the Plantations Shops offer souvenir items for low prices.


Lihue is famous for its water sports. Kalapaki and Kauai beaches are perfect sites for scuba diving and windsurfing. Golf enthusiasts may play a challenging 18 holes at the Kauai Lagoon Golf Club.
