Why Stay At Koa Kea Hotel & Resort
Ocean front hotel boasting a prime location right on family-friendly Kiahuna Beach.
The highly personalized service makes Koa Kea a standout among south shore Kauai hotels. After your check-in, bags are whisked to the room by one of the 24-hour porters and a front desk staffer gets you up to speed on in-room amenities such as the Espresso machine, complimentary Wi-Fi, and 42-inch flat-screen TVs. Marble showers offer high-end cotton bathrobes and plush towels and twice daily housekeeping and turndown service (including complimentary water bottles) round off the pampering. During the day, frolic around the hotel pool (complete with poolside wait service), catch some rays on the beach or snorkel in the mellow waves merely steps away. Should you be afflicted with sunburn or muscle aches after adventuring around Kauai, the on-site spa has signature treatments (oceanside if you wish) like Sun-kissed Rescue Wrap or Adventure Lovers Massage to alleviate discomfort. Can't get enough of Hawaii's balmy weather? Feast oceanfront on delicate Hawaiian and Pacific Rim cuisine at laid-back Red Salt Restaurant's outdoor terrace.
Pay a visit to the Spouting Horn, which is part of the Koloa Heritage Trail just 5 minutes away. The lava rock formation catapults incoming crashing waves up to 50 feet in the air.
Want to learn how to surf? Inquire at the beachside watersports hut, which rents equipment and offers surfing lessons.
Arrive at Lihue Airport (LIH) which is approximately 15 miles from the resort. Anticipate about 30 minutes of travel time.2251 Poipu Road, Poipu Beach, Hawaii, United States

Why We Love Poipu Beach
Blessed with near consistent sunshine, Poipu Beach is home to Hawaii's lush National Tropical Botanical Garden. The south shore community's numerous sand beaches are lapped by clear waves, where you might spot migrating Humpback Whales and large honu (Hawaiian green sea turtles).
2360 Kiahuna Plantation Dr. C40, Koloa.
Where to Drink: For over two decades, Brennecke's Beach Broiler just 3 miles up the road from the cottage has been an island favorite boasting a winning mix of beachfront location and expertly mixed happy hour cocktails accompanied by reasonably priced pupu platters. Drinks for two $20.
2100 Hoone Rd, Poipu Beach, Koloa.
Where to Shop:Travel to Eleele for Kauai's hippest souvenir, the Red Dirt Shirt. The now wildly popular idea by Paradise Sportswear was born after a batch of T-shirts was covered in characteristic iron-rich soil following Hurricane Iniki.
4350 Waialo Road, Eleele, Kauai.
Outdoor Excursion: Looking to get the best vantage points of the Garden Island? Hire a guide from Kauai Hiking Adventures for a personal tour of breathtaking Waimea Canyon or the Na Pali Coast's untouched natural beauty. Excursions can be custom-tailored to your ability level and interests.
