Location is stunning but the staff drive your experience. Nice and quiet and 3 min away from beach access though the lawn chairs afford sound of surf and great views. Take advantage of their excursion connections, all front desk staff were superb and the providers they booked where as nice as the hotel. Make sure you see Spouting Horn which...

The Koa Kea was absolute bliss! It was so luxurious and relaxing! Exactly what I was looking for for our honeymoon. I really don't think you can go wrong by just being in Kauai, but the Koa Kea made everything absolutely perfect. Breakfast was amazing, and the pool was quiet and uncrowded even though we went during the peak season....

We booked our honeymoon at the place on Luxury Link. It was a great deal for the value this place offers. I recommend this place for any adults/young adults looking for a hotel/resort where the kids are non-existent! The food was great, especially breakfast! The pool was always heated and jacuzzi never crowded. The staff here was very welcoming and...

We made a reservation months before our February arrival and my wife insisted we book an ocean front room. Great call! Our room was on the second level and we were literally 20 yards from the ocean with a gorgeous view from our relatively private deck. Great spot for watching the sunset, surfers, foot traffic, birds, swimmers, hearing the sounds...

every person we encountered at this property was terrific to interact with. We actually packed up and planned on staying on the north shore for the balance of our vacation but missed this property and the vibe so much we turned around and spent our last night there to complete our family trip on a high note.

Just returned from a quick vacation in Kauai, and was fortunate to spend four nights of my stay at Koa Ke'a. Check in was a breeze, and we were in our room within 5 minutes of arriving at the property. I had booked a garden view room and ended up with a second floor room overlooking the pool area -...

Overall, the resort was most pleasant. . . Red Salt Restaurant was extremely good for dinner but seemed overpriced. Breakfast was included and was somewhat standard fare. Our partial oceanview room was adequate but not particularly comfortable. Watching the news on TV had to be done by sitting on the bed; the room was so small that the one non-desk...

I loved our room at this hotel. It had a refrigerator and they gave you bottled water daily. The room was spotless, I even saw the maids wiping the door down when they cleaned your room. Always had clean towels available. Every employee had a smile. They couldn't do enough for you. I was worried about the valet parking only...

A small, boutique property on Poipu Beach, surrounding by condo resorts & the Sheraton, Ko Kea was a nice place to stay. The rooms were well appointed and of comfortable size. We could watch the sunset every evening from our room or our balcony. Room service was late & slow for breakfast, but breakfast much better in dining room. Housekeeping...

My Wife and I stayed there for a week. This is the only property to stay at on Kauai. Warm friendly service with great staff and food.
