Nihi Kai Villas3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We were immediately and happily surprised by the size of the unit and it's location. Much bigger than it appears in the photos, particularly the lanai, where we spent most of our time when in the room. Nice view of the shore from our room (520), although partially obstructed by the railing and a few houses. The kitchen is very spacious, and I definitely recommend using it if you want to make Kaua'i affordable--there is a very convenient and well-stocked grocery store nearby in Koloa, with reasonable prices for Hawaii. The Nihi Kai is actually much closer to the beach than it would appear at booking--very easy walking distance. Plus, their pool is on the way back from the beach, so you can shower and lounge there if you need just a little more sun and water. The grounds were beautiful and well maintained, reception very friendly. We particularly appreciated the location, which we realized was perfect for both enjoying the beach (great for bougie boarding) and taking excursions around the island (although it will take over 1.5 hours to get up past Hanalei Bay, the trip is worth it). We are a "budget traveler" family, and the Nihi Kai was by far the nicest place we've stayed over the years of travelling with our two children around the world. It is not the luxury and opulence of the nearby Hyatt, and if you want to be pampered you'll have to do it yourself, but the Nihi Kai stands out for it's convenience, spaciousness, and well maintained grounds and units. The only inconveniences we noted, and they were really inconsequential, were a kitchen rangetop that was difficult to master, and the three flights of stairs up to our unit were difficult for mobility impaired travelers. Some units are closer to the beach than others, so you might want to look at the complex map and balance distance to walk versus peace and quiet of being set back from the beach/pool if walking is difficult.
