Koa Kea Hotel & Resort, Koloa
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.

Amazing boutique resort in perfect Kauai location
We decided to extend our original stay in Kauai (the honeymoon we hadn't had the chance to take earlier) and we stayed at Koa Kea Resort for 1 night before leaving. This resort was fabulous because it is a bit smaller/intimate, more boutique-like, perfect for couples, without losing any of the amenities that some of the larger resorts have. From check-in to check-out, the service was superb! The room itself was modern, clean, had a small fridge that you can fill, an espresso maker for coffee on the lanai in the morning. And my husband thought the bed was heavenly, even wanted to find out where they purchased their mattresses from. That being said, we spent the majority of our time out of the room, having a drink by the pool with an amazing ocean view, or down at the beach. Our flight home was very late in the evening and since the hotel could not offer us a late check-out, they did offer a hospitality suite. We were able to enjoy our last day in Kauai, and then shower and clean-up before our flight out in the evening. Amazing resort for couples, great location, incredible service! We will definitely be back.
