About Koa Kea Hotel & Resort, Koloa

Oceanfront hotel by Poipu Beach with a pool bar and spa

Poipu and Kiahuna Beaches

Koa Kea Hotel & Resort has an oceanfront address on the south coast of Kauai Island between Poipu and Kiahuna Beaches, both a few minutes' stroll away. You can also walk to Poipu Shopping Village in 11 minutes, and Kiahuna Golf Club is 3 minutes away by car.

Surfing, helicopter tours

Kauai is a hot spot for surfing, snorkeling, helicopter tours, and nature hikes. Nearby Poipu Beach Park is a great place to spot sea turtles and monk seals, and an 8-minute drive will place you among 2,000 acres of plant life at the National Tropical Botanical Garden.

Spa time, poolside bar

Red Salt Restaurant serves upscale seafood and American dining all day, complete with ocean and pool views, and a sushi bar. The Hawaiian Spa pampers guests with couples massage and signature botanical treatments, or you can simply enjoy a cocktail and a swim by the poolside bar.

Modern Polynesian style fills the 121 rooms, and private balconies show off ocean and garden views. WiFi is available so you can stay connected, you can charge your devices in the iPod® docking stations, housekeeping is available twice daily, and the flat-screen HDTVs come with cable TV service.

Weekend Getaway!
This is the second time we stay there it’s a nice property boutique hotel a little pricey. Poolside service not very helpful. If you like a smaller hotel this one is perfect.

Chill, Boutique hotel, convenient location
Clean and quiet hotel experience, perfect for couples getaway. Not a party nor a family center - just the place for a relaxing and quiet stay. Service was unmatched with friendliness. 1 pool side bar - Pricey food and drinks. Again, not a party by the pool. Close to shopping village, coffee places, and beach. No direct beach, but right next door are shared beach areas.

Boutique Luxe on Kauai
Really nice hotel. There aren't many boutique luxury properties in Poipu, so Koa Kea was perfect for us (multi gen family). We didn't want to stay at the Sheraton or Marriott mega properties. This hotel has everything you need (excellent pool bar with call buttons, refined restaurant for dinner, spa, water sports, daily activities, beach access, and spectacular views if you pay for oceanfront). However, the size makes it feel authentic and intimate. The other nearby hotels (i.e., similar views) are huge and don't have that personal finesse. Liked the area, though. Walking distance to Little Fish Coffee and Cafe Anuenue (both excellent for breakfast if you want to avoid high cost of that meal at the hotel). My favorite things about the Koa Kea rooms were the extraordinarily comfy beds (soft, not firm) and the Fresh beauty products. I use some of these products at home and was delighted to get travel size versions from the hotel. Pool view rooms on ground floor looked awesome if you didn't want to spring for oceanfront view. Could sit on patio in the shade and feel like you were part of the pool atmosphere (which was calm and quiet all day) without even leaving your room. May try that room type for my next visit. Would definitely return!

Our stay was amazing! We couldn’t have asked for a better location. The view was incredible, and easy short walk to the beach! We even saw turtles almost everyday. The room was super clean. Our balcony view was more than we expected! Will definitely be back.
