We came here for the first time in 2007. Loved it! At that time there was a restaurant on property and was so nice not to have to drive 30 minutes to get food, if you do not want to cook yourself. We decided to do a Thanksgiving stay here recently. Reception still had a warm welcoming feel! However, 1st... More

The Plantation even invited us to participate in the traditional Imu for the holiday feast and we were able to cook our Thanksgiving Kahlua Pork the Hawiian Style. It was a wonderful change in our tradition.

View is fantastic and the cottages are quaint but a bit outdated. Grills and fully stocked kitchen were very nice when cooking dinner. Cabin 59 is overlooking the ocean. Although it's a two bedroom cottage, be aware the one bedroom has two twin beds.

I absolutely LOVED my stay at the Waimea Plantation Cottages. The cottages were clean, comfortable and quaint. I spent a week in my little cottage and it really felt like home - I had everything I needed. The island of Kauai filled me with a magic that I will never forget. I hope to return one day soon!!

This Hotel, consisting of charming restored plantation homes situated on ample acreage is the perfect oasis. Fronting the ocean, with pool and hammocks, it exudes tranquil Hawaiian ambiance. If you are looking for a peaceful and private hotel experience this is the place. We absolutely loved staying here!

we had a small cottage near the office, tired but beautiful old world charm. No fancy resort swimming pool just a basic pool but peaceful. Great gardens and the kitchen made it so easy just to have a snack at night. Wonderful shower. Staff friendly would recommend if you want a quite holiday. Free washing machine and dryer.

This was exactly what we were hoping for: our own cottage close to the ocean with a kitchen, a porch where we could relax and eat, laundry facilities, a beach to walk on. If you are looking for a fancy resort, this is not for you. But it was perfect for the relaxing, private vacation we wanted.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Private, individual plantation cottages set on a historic 27-acre coconut plantation in a beachside setting close to Kauai's famous Napali Coast and Waimea Canyon. Each self-contained cottage has been fully restored with modern appliances, full kitchens, and amenities. The simple, comfortable charm, genuine history and beautiful grounds allow guests to enjoy a unique experience unlike any other in the islands. Waimea Plantation Cottages offers beautiful settings for Wedding Celebrations, Anniversaries, Family Reunions, and Corporate Business meetings. Note: The restaurant will be closed temporarily as we remodel and transition the restaurant to a new restaurant operator and will re-open in mid-to-late fall of 2013. We apologize for this temporary inconvenience. During this transition, we suggest trying some of the other dining options in Waimea Town such as Wrangler's Steak House. But do come and try our new restaurant once it reopens! ... more   less
