Rooms & Rates

Sweeping views and lush grounds make up the 25 acres of the plantation-style Aqua Kauai Beach Resort, which backs onto Kauai’s longest beach. With the resort’s location on the Coconut Coast, you’ll have easy access not only to the beach but to Puakea Golf Course, a 15-minute drive away. The course is one of the more affordable options on the island and receives rave reviews on TripAdvisor.

Back at the resort, get sun-kissed while spending time at the saline outdoor pools, including lagoon pools with waterfalls. Kids and adults alike can seek thrills careening down the 75-foot waterslide. A soak in the whirlpool is a welcome end to a day spent sightseeing.

Plantation-style guest rooms at the resort showcase traditional Hawaiian décor, a private lanai and a travertine marble bathroom. Some of the rooms have views of Kalepa Ridge or unbroken views of the Pacific.

To add some history to your vacation, spend time at Kilohana Plantation Estates, built in the 1930s and offering tours and train rides as a fun way for guests to learn about the island’s history.

From the press:
  • “This property sits on a 3-mile stretch of the beach, next door to a top-ranked municipal golf course, 3 miles north of Lihue, about equidistant from both north- and south-shore activities” – Frommer’s
  • “The rooms are extremely comfortable, with a casual tropical theme, and the oceanfront grounds are beautifully landscaped” – Fodor’s
