Once a sugar plantation manor house, this condominium resort occupies 35 acres adjacent to a lovely beach. Renowned Moir Gardens are part of this plantation, and National Tropical Botanical Gardens are less than 5 miles away.
Lush grounds and gardens at Castle Kiahuna Plantation & Beach Bungalows display 70-year-old orchids, exotic lauhala trees, and oddly shaped cacti specimens. Guests of this 35-acre resort enjoy plenty of space for rest and solitude. Guests who seek activity can play tennis, swim in the custom-designed pool next door, and enjoy a lagoon. A beach hut rents out boogie boards and snorkeling equipment and loans out complimentary beach chairs and towels. Food and drink are offered at the popular Plantation Gardens Restaurant, located in the plantation's original manor house. Photos on the walls chronicle the plantation's history. Contemporary Hawaiian cuisine features local fish. The lounge, with its own veranda, serves complimentary appetizers during happy hour.
Condo units are housed in plantation-style buildings facing Poipu Beach. Units feature garden or ocean views and are accessible via exterior stairs (no elevators). Amenities include furnished lanais, full kitchens, and in-room safes. Ceiling fans and louvered shutters provide cooling breezes (no air conditioning). Daily housekeeping is provided.
