Luxurious lodging

by merbel

What is the top hotel in Kauai?

Re: Luxurious lodging

by YVRDave

It has to be the Princeville Hotel, but I would only visit and stay at The Whalers cove resort.

Don't waste your money on lodging--get a place with clean sheets being the most important criteria. You should only be in the hotel for a few hours. That is unless you are going for your honeymoon since Kauai is known as the honeymoon isle.

Re: Re: Luxurious lodging

Meridith it depends also on you needs. If you prefer service for all meals instead of just lunch and dinner i prefer condos. You can make your own breakfast at your leisure and then go out for lunch and dinner.
Poipu, where The Whalers Cove is has better weather than Princeville. The Princeville Hotel has much better scenery than The Kauai Lagoons and both are spectacular in design and comfort. I prefer the Princeville scenery because your water view at Kauai lagoons looks at the petroleum docks. The Hyatt is also a nice blend of luxury, view and weather.

Stay South or you will get rained on every day.. It almost never rains on the West Side of the Island. Very nice places all over the Island..
I was very disappointed. I don't think it is that beautiful on this Island... Lots of junk on the island and the beaches..

Personally I love the Hyatt but the Princeville is outstanding too. Really depends on which side of the island you prefer.
I believe the Hyatt has won more awards.

Princeville - the travel channel - Sam Brown listed it as one of the top hotels in the islands. It is beautiful and opulent. The area is almost exclusively white - so if that doesn't bother you - it is like any other suburban neighborhood - except the views of the mountains and ocean are amazing.

Lodging Suggestions

Has anyone stayed at the Kiahuna Plantation & the Beach Bungalows? I would like comments, both negative and positive. It appears that most condos don't have air conditioning. How much of a problem will this be in February?

Re: Lodging Suggestions

by YVRDave

This is a great place. You won't need AC with the trade winds and a ceiling fan..
I have also stayed at Whalers Cove and rented a house from http://www.kauairentals.com/

Re: Lodging Suggestions

I stayed there about ten years ago but was back on Kauai last month. The Kiahuna Plantation has a very nice Hawaiiiana feel about it. Each unit had an individual owner, so there was some lack of continuity throughout the units, but they were a good value for the money and it's a great setting on Poipu Beach. AC is really not necessary in Hawaii, I lived on the Big Island until 3 years ago and never had AC. Be sure to get to the northshore of Kauai when you go. Have a look at my homepage re: Kauai. Aloha !!

Kauai Help?

by KimBradshaw

Any suggestions on who to use for the NaPali Coast tour? Also, we would like to attend a Luau, any preference? We are staying in Whaler's Cove the last week of August.

Re: Kauai Help?

by AndreSTGT

We went with Holoholo Tours in Kapaa and were very satisfied with their service. The catamaran trip along Na Pali Coast took 7 hours and included lunch, drinks and snorkeling. Cost was 99$ in 2000. Na Pali Coast is one of the most amazing places on earth. Enjoy!!!

Re: Re: Kauai Help?

by YVRDave

good choice on Whalers Cove also.

Re: Kauai Help?

by Pierre_Rouss

I liked Liko Kauai Cruises.
Managed and operated by locals, so they like what they do, have lots to do and see. Departs from Kikiaola harbor near Waimea.

Luau are an acquired taste, almost a tourist trap in itself, but the one at the Kauai Coconut Beach Resort, in Kapaa I believe, is pretty great, very complete and diverse.

Re: Re: Kauai Help?

by Kapaa

Most of the NaPali tours are great (expensive but worth it) I like Blue Dolphin myself. You can try Scuba diving for $25.
I have worked a couple of the luaus here and still couldn't pick one. Coconut Beach is small but probably the most Hawaiian.

Re: Re: Kauai Help?

by clws

We have gone on Captain Andy's Napali Snorkle trip and loved it! They will even stop or go back for dolphins and turtles. And for a Luau we prefer Smith's Tropical Paradise.
