Koa Kea Hotel & Resort in Poipu Beach, Kauai, Hawaii

Waves crash near the lanais of Koa Kea Hotel & Resort's oceanfront guestrooms, a collection of low-profile buildings that blend with the nature around them. Inside, fresh flowers accent simple, modern island décor and art prints of coral. Koa Kea means "white coral," a tribute to the life-giving power of the reefs. According to Hawaiian mythology, coral is the goddess granddaughter of the world’s creator. From November to May, Koa Kea’s slice of the Pacific hosts a migration of humpback whales, so keep an eye to the horizon.

Brew a cup of Nespresso coffee and watch the slender white ocean birds dive for their morning meal. Join them on the shore. Beat the noonday sun with a hike through the rainforest on Kuilau or Moalepe Trail – only 10 percent of the Garden Isle is accessible by road. Swim in a secluded lagoon under a waterfall. Order a seaside dinner of bronzed diver scallops with pea sprouts in a sweet lilikoi beurre blanc.

This was truly the find of our entire trip. My husband and I had dinner there the second night in Kauai after a harrowing 'condo experience' that otherwise shall go unmentioned and it was pure bliss! Our server was Chris- just the perfect blend of knowledge, professionalism and friendliness. Like all of you, I'm sure you've experienced a weight on one side or the other of that fraction, but Chris was perfectly balanced. His recommendations were wonderful (we took them and were not disappointed) and his attentiveness was spot on. Food was, well, it couldn't have been better. Everything was just delicious and so fresh. The ambience was delightful, and fun. An interesting crowd for dinner- no kids! We love kids but no kids! We relaxed and enjoyed each minute so much that we drove over from the crowded heavily kidded Hyatt for breakfast. And THAT was pure heaven too.

Honeymooned here! Feel that this is a 3.5/5 but erring on the higher side. Pros - Extremely friendly staff - Really delicious breakfast each day (came with our package) - Clean, modern rooms and grounds - Very quiet, couples only feel. - Very easy to get a chair by the pool and minimal people in resort, especially compared to the resorts on either side which were insanely busy Cons - partial ocean view is not an ocean view unless you literally stand outside - don't pay extra - Ocean side massages are close to ocean but not on ocean. Most expensive massage I ever had and I heard weedwackers and lawn mowers from place next door nearly the entire time. Not relaxing AT ALL. - Outside bar closes at 8:30 and fire pits close at 9:30. Kind of a bummer if you're not the early type.

Last-minute arrangements to come here for a short stay and WOW, this was the BEST experience I've had at ANY property. I travel for a living and probably spend 100+ nights a year in hotels - Koa Kea (I was not staying here for business) was just superb in every way. From the Valet and Bell staff to the Front Desk staff to the quality of the accommodations and dining experiences (and staff) it was just terrific. We felt like we were leaving behind good friends when our short stay came to an end. Cannot wait to return!

Koa Kea shares many of the same traits as Kauai - laid back, unpretentious, and casual. We enjoyed our stay, found the staff friendly and helpful, and the view is gorgeous. The beach is very small, and the walkway along the beach ends at one end of the resort. Book a room at the end of one of the two buildings closest to the ocean for an unobstructed view from the balcony of the ocean. This is not a place for kids. The pool and lawn area seemed to be the central gathering spot, and it's very, very quiet. Good if you want to relax, but not an atmosphere for children or boisterous partying. Talking with regulars, we learned that the present structures were rebuilt when the prior hotel was wiped out by a 1992 hurricane. Unfortunately the room, except for maybe the bathroom, looks like it hasn't been updated since. The room furnishings were dated and a bit worn, and the mattress seemed to have had 25 years of wear - it had zero support. Fortunately a massage at the hotel spa was reasonable in price to work out the kinks. I wasn't fond of the balcony structure - there's only a small foot-wide panel between balconies (four rooms/balconies in a row in the end units), leaving open space between balconies and no privacy, so you often sit beside your neighbors. It seems like that would be an inexpensive fix with bigger panels. The wrought iron on the balcony showed rust, which I'm sure is a constant battle with the salt air. Don't get me wrong, this is a great resort, it's just not close to luxury status.

My husband and I just returned from a week at the Koa Kea and had an absolutely amazing time! Truly, the service was wonderful - the staff did everything in their power to make it a special, relaxing, and memorable stay. The property is gorgeous and, especially compared with the larger (and louder) resorts nearby, a welcome spot of zen! Special shout outs go to Jamie & Kristyn for their exceptional memories of our high maintenance diets (and delicious cocktails). Also to Justin who is, hands down, the most amazing sushi chef EVER. We ate with him 4 times (yep - THAT good) and he literally never served us the same bite twice. His creativity, passion, and talent is beyond impressive. He also happens to be a really nice guy who didn't mind our incessant questions or annoying gluten-free diet. :) If you are heading to Kauai, I can't recommend this resort more. We can't wait to get back!
