Listen to waves crashing ashore from an upgraded oceanview room at a beachfront Kauai hotel -- saving 45% on current prices. For $139 per night, travel any day through Dec. 20.
Or upgrade to a 528-square-foot oceanfront room with a larger lanai for $50 more per night including two welcome mai tais.
The Courtyard Kaua'i at Coconut Beach recently completed a $13 million transformation. Stroll through dozens of shops at the open-air Coconut Marketplace across the street, then return to the hotel to enjoy the swimming pool and oceanside jogging paths.
The hotel is also two miles from Lydgate State Park -- a calm beach perfect for swimming and snorkeling -- and 11 miles from the Wailua River, the island's longest navigable river.
