Gracious service, clean, updated, spacious rooms and relaxing pretty restaurant with good food! We had an oceanfront room with direct ocean views, maybe 25 feet from the water and perfect sunset viewing. Expensive BUT worth every penny. A quiet property without all of the distractions of a mega resort, perfect for couples. If you desire a romantic, peaceful, and quality...

The Koa Kea was a fantastic experience. The room was incredible in this superb boutique hotel. The setting couldn't have been wonderful - we felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. It was peaceful, elegant, and right on the beach. We had breakfast every morning from the balcony of our ocean front room. The only contrary thing I...

We had read reviews of every hotel on Kauai and kept coming back to the Koa Kea. It was everything advertised! The staff, from the moment we walked in (late at night) was attentive and friendly beyond expectations. And this was the same throughout our stay. As expected, the resort was comfortably small, quiet, and relaxing. The grounds were kept...

My husband and I were fortunate to spend the last few days of our Kauai stay at the Koa Kea and we were delighted with all aspects of the property! We are in our mid 40s, celebrating our 25th anniversary and our recent "empty-nest", so we wanted something quiet, peaceful and well, 'adult'. We were not disappointed! Beyond beautiful (the...

We returned to the Koa Kea for our 1 year anniversary after spending our honeymoon there, and once again out expectations were exceeded. This boutique resort is perfect for couples, and the staff goes out of their way to make you feel at home- my husband and I particularly appreciate how everyone always remembers your name. From the delicious breakfasts...

This was our first visit to Koa Kea (selected based on reviews here on TA). I would recommend it highly to anyone wanting a relaxed, quiet, friendly boutique hotel. Hardly any kids -- if you need kids around, you can find them almost anywhere else on Poipu Beach, all just a short walk away. The only time it felt crowded...

Pros- *When we got there the front desk/concierge came around the desk and shook our hands to welcome us. Very nice and unique touch. *We got to the hotel a little early and our room wasnt ready so they upgraded us to ocean view room.

We just returned from a week at the Koa Kea and had a wonderful time. The rooms are very nice ( Nespresso machine in every room ), the staff was always very friendly and helpful.

This place is amazing. It is small and intimate, we were often referred to by name. The room was great from the feather pillows to the rain shower in the bathroom. I agree that more than 6 coffees should be included after the second night. The breakfasts were good and had many options. Red Salt was expensive but food was...
